    Our motto is Pokémon Practice makes Pokémon Perfect. We are a competitive-battling community that encourages the development of players and their ideas, and fosters positive and respectful attitudes. We love Collaboration (working together), Competition (getting stronger), and Communication (being informed).

    You are free to post everywhere, unless the thread explicitly states otherwise (usually in the case of a vote), and there are no private forums whatsoever. We just require you to not make multiple accounts. Let us greet you by posting a thread in the Introduce Yourself! forum.

  3. Tiers

    View Introduction to Tiers if you don't know what tiers are. Pokémon Perfect tiers are named differently to those on Smogon. A numeral followed by the letter U, e.g. 1U, 2U, 3U, represents a main tier on Pokémon Perfect – the '1' of '1U' representing the tier level. For a tier to be a main tier, it must be balanced (nothing is too powerful and game-breaking) and diverse enough (include a variety of Pokémon and strategies). A numeral followed by the letter P, e.g. 1P, 2P, 3P contain all Pokémon that are deemed overpowered in the respective 1U, 2U, 3U tiers. The 1st tier level allows Pokémon that are banned in the 2nd level, and this process continues down. Read the tier list, and in-depth explanations of the tiers naming system and tiering system. Also check out our analyses for all tiers.

  4. Tournaments

    RBY 1U Seasons and its master tournaments are responsible for starting up the community, and tournaments continue to play a big role in maintaining interest in the forums.

    ***REPLAYS ARE MANDATORY FOR ALL GAMES!!!***

    Hi all! I've been thinking about this for the better part of a year and I've decided now is the time I want to move forward with it. It's always been a dream, as a Pokemon nerd and an ADV enthusiast, to see a tournament in which the best of the best- from the past and the present- are truly motivated to put in the time and effort and play their very best. What better way to motivate people than money? Hopefully this event achieves that goal... Let me start with the basics of the event-

    -32 participants, invite only. This tournament is NOT open to the general public, sorry. Hosting here on PP with the permission of Disaster Area. Thank you for letting me hold this here.

    -ADV OU bo3s, with semifinals and on being bo5.

    -Double elimination.

    -Random pairings every single round in order to prevent collusion of any kind. There WILL be a winners bracket and a losers bracket, but I'll be randomizing pairings within those brackets each round.

    -Baton Pass + Ingrain in banned.

    -Baton Pass + Belly Drum is banned.

    -No team may contain more than 3 Pokemon with the move Baton Pass.

    -Quick Claw, Brightpowder, etc. are banned. I shouldn't have to say this...

    -Beyond what I've already mentioned, normal tournament and tiering rules as observed both here and on Smogon apply. Obviously nothing in Ubers is legal.

    -All participants MUST have a Pokemon Perfect account in order to play. I will not chase people on Discord, Smogon, etc to tell them the round has begun. Doing this all in one place.

    $500 of my personal money up for grabs!

    -Because it is my personal money on the line, I will be strict regarding inactivity. Have some respect and appreciation and play the damn matches! If not I'm sure someone else would gladly sub in and take their chances at 500 dollars.

    -Likewise, because it is my personal money and my tournament, while I will do my very best to be as fair, unbiased and objective as possible at all times, all decisions if and when controversy arises will be made solely at my discretion.

    -Payment to those who win money will be made via PayPal. There is no other payment option. I will not send a check or a money order or anything like that. If you're not comfortable accepting the winnings via PayPal, don't join.

    A great tournament idea and perhaps the first step towards creating an e-sports culture in the community.

    Look forward to participating.

    They came from far and wide... each answering the call and arriving to test their mettle... each with their eyes set upon the grand prize and glory that comes with it. When the dust settles, only one will be left standing... To my fellow warriors in Pokémon battling, I salute you. I am in.

    :( what's wrong with brightpowder? It's legit on certain Jirachi sets... :x I think if you want to ban anything like this it's your perogative for your tournament but at least be specific imo.

    For what it's worth, all of Focus Band, Quick Claw, and Brightpowder were banned items on NetBattle. There are some players - mostly old school guys - who are still of the mentality that they should remain banned. So I'm fully in support of the blanket ban in this tour, to say nothing of the fact that Callous is hosting and gets to make the rules. xD

    I hate those luck based items, minimazing randomness is always welcomed. Although I will miss belly drum pass. ;C

    I've used most of them at some point although mud slap is kind of bad but there's super niche scenarios where it's a good choice. Also now i feel inspired to consider Swagger DDTar...

    I've used it on bliss and jirachi before

    also obligatory: lutra's WC format > double elimination because same length of time but players play a more equal number of games, and the final is winner takes all not one-player-has-to-win-both-series

    link to that:

    But you then lost 2 battles in a round and everyone has to win 2/3 of their matches each round, so you'd have a pretty similar record to those went out. If the tournament was ideal, you'd be playing the toughest last, so winning lots of consecutive matches isn't necessarily a good indicator. It is a lot of battles though for everyone, that point can't be put into context.

    Ladies and gentlemen we have our first decline!

    Ojama has chosen not to play. As such, a substitute will get a spot!

    I'm going to offer that spot to Teal6. If he declines, we'll move on down the line. Also, others may still decline.

    Kael has not logged onto PP in three weeks and he was someone I was on the fence about inviting to begin with because of scheduling concerns, so I'm withdrawing his invite and giving his spot to Nails. I'm going to be strict about inactivity. Respect me and my money and play your matches. :)

    ToF and Dekzeh have accepted and Golden Sun has declined, citing lack of interest in the game as a whole and the intention to quit. He will be replaced by Mael. As such, all initial spots are full and I'll randomly draw the round one pairings when I get home tonight and we'll get this party started. If anyone is inactive they WILL be subbed out, as there are plenty of subs who would happily hop in and play. I'll see you guys all shortly with the r1 pairings...

    Participants and spectators, I am ECSTATIC to announce that this tournament has begun! This very well may be THE most difficult ADV OU tournament EVER and I'm proud, ridiculously pumped and a bit giddy to be hosting it. Remember, while there is a winner's and a loser's bracket respectively, as this tournament is double elimination, we will not have brackets in the traditional sense. Pairings each and every round will be determined entirely randomly and no one, including me, will know in advance who will face who in the next round.

    Alrighty, here are the randomly determined round 1 pairings...

    dragonuser vs Lady Schala (Lady Schala is We Three Kings)
    Mael vs Fakes
    Osgoode vs Malekith
    McMeghan vs Nails
    TreinerOrenge vs Astamatitos (TreinerOrenge is JabbaTheGriffin)
    VIL vs Eden's Embrace (Eden's Embrace is Sunny)
    Bomber vs autumn leaves (autumn leaves is BKC)
    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador
    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface
    sky chord vs undisputed (sky chord is Tamahome)
    dekzeh vs teal6
    Cowboy Dan vs ToF
    Earthworm vs Coffe
    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem
    M Dragon vs Fear
    SoulWind vs Colchonero

    Because this is the opening week and things started abruptly, I'll give a bit more time. As such, the deadline for the matches to be played is Sunday May 14th 11:59 PM EST. After that, I'll give one week per round.

    I WILL be strict with inactivity and with deadlines. I won't be granting extensions. Get the matches done! Let me know if you're having issues contacting your opponent. I WILL sub people out if they're not active and if you get subbed out you're not getting subbed back in.

    REPLAYS ARE ABSOLUTELY 100% MANDATORY. I plan to narrate and upload every single game in this tournament. If the replay is not posted and public- even if 100 people witnessed the game, even if I witnessed the game- if the replay is not uploaded the game DOES NOT COUNT, period.

    Results and replays are to be posted in this thread.

    Let me know if there are any questions or problems.

    Otherwise, good luck and have fun! :)

    dragonuser vs Triangles ???
    Mael vs Fakes ???
    Osgoode vs Malekith Go Osgoode!
    McMeghan vs Nails
    @JabbaTheGriffin vs Astamatitos
    VIL vs Eden's Embrace (Eden's Embrace is Sunny)
    Bomber vs autumn leaves (autumn leaves is BKC)
    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador ???
    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface
    sky chord vs undisputed (sky chord is Tamahome)
    dekzeh vs teal6
    Cowboy Dan vs ToF
    Earthworm vs Coffe
    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem
    M Dragon vs Fear
    SoulWind vs Colchonero

    I don't know everyone in this, so I predicted the ones in which I either knew both players or where one player is strong relative to the field. If I didn't know either player or wasn't certain, I didn't predict.

    Without a bracket, I don't know where everyone will end up.

    McMeghan vs BKC final?

    dragonuser vs Triangles - DU isn't bad at ADV by any stretch of the imagination, but you have to think Triangles is more active and up-to-date in the tier, especially coming off of an SPL. He didn't look too great during SPL, but he's competent enough to muscle through DU I'd say.
    Mael vs Fakes - Feel like Mael's more versatile and can take advantage of some things, especially since he tests with Fakes all the time. Fakes is the better overall player and this might be a bit of an upset in the eyes of most, but they're both competent and Mael will out-prep and then execute well enough.
    Osgoode vs Malekith - Close series, but Kith's one of the better players out there and has had multiple high-level ADV tournament showings that netted positive, so favoring him.
    McMeghan vs Nails - GOAT
    JabbaTheGriffin vs Astamatitos - I mean Jabba had a rough SPL, but he's still capable. Thing is that Asta's generally motivated and been on top of everything since he came back, so gotta give it to him here. Very nice series though, hope to catch these -- expecting some funky squads from the Griffin.
    VIL vs Eden's Embrace - VIL is an all time great, rough drawing for Sunny
    Bomber vs autumn leaves - lucky and bad VS unlucky and good...hopefully bkc wins for the sake of pokemon
    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador - AM is a thing of the past, sadly, but if he's anywhere near his prime, which SPL showed he was not, then he probably would be favored
    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface - Linear's too new to the scene to upset rey, but could be close if rey lost a step or two in ADV over the past few years
    sky chord vs undisputed - Surely one of the better games this round, but I feel like tama naturally matches up well here and also has a slight edge in level of play, could go either way though
    dekzeh vs teal6 - I mean I'm unsure of dek's activity or willingness to play, but if he actually plays...he's easily one of the best ADVers and players in general -- he knows the tier insanely well, builds with creativity, and executes well on a consistent basis, so I expect him to be one of the favorites if he cares.
    Cowboy Dan vs ToF - Easily the better player, enough to compensate for the lack of recent ADV exposure
    Earthworm vs Coffe - Pretty sure Worms could win this if he spilled Coffee on his computer and could only functionally use 5 Pokemon each game because of some malfunction the spill caused.
    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem - Ibidem did well in PPL, but UD has played in SPL and is generally viewed as solid, so leaning him since I don't know too much about Ibidem outside of PPL. Expecting a close series though.
    M Dragon vs Fear - M Dragon is one of the best ADVers of all time, but Fear is very crafty and skillful as a player. Leaning Dragon solely because of sheer competence, familiarity, and historic skill, but Fear is surely one to pull this upset, especially w/ M Dragon losing early in some of the cups on Smogon and Fear coming off of a solid SPL
    SoulWind vs Colchonero - SW is simply the better player, in my eyes, but it's nice to see two long-time solid Spanish players go at it, hoping for Colcho to show a bit more passion and flare for this tier than he has GSC in other tours as of late and maybe make it a close series

    ngl I've never done a prediction thing before but there's a first time for everything :d

    dragonuser vs Triangles - triangles is the superior adver here, I think. DU certainly is a good enough player to take this though, who knows.

    Mael vs Fakes - see above

    Osgoode vs Malekith - played both of them in adv cup: kith beat my ass like an alcoholic stepfather and Osgoode tried memeing me with baton pass chains ._. In all seriousness, I regard Malekith as one of, if not the single best player in the world atm, he goes really fucking fat in just about any tour he joins, with him winning dpp cup in the UU classic, semifinals of OST, just to name a few. Hard to predict someone that's been doing this good recently.

    McMeghan vs Nails - ngl I really haven't seen nails play a ton of adv. I'm sure he's more than capable but he's up against THE roroyurem..

    JabbaTheGriffin vs Astamatitos - think this is gonna be one of the best sets this round, highlight for sure. If Jabba can bounce back from his lame showing in spl, I think this'll be great.

    VIL vs Eden's Embrace - sunny's always kinda down on himself when I talk to him but he finally got something going in roapl - he sees now that he can win. I have zero doubt in my mind that sunny with his trusty alcohol buzz can defeat vil if he doesn't let his nerves get to him. Believe in yourself for once dude..

    Bomber vs autumn leaves - another close one, though I do think BKC's got an edge in this, I've seen Bomber pull out some wins with some utterly insane stuff in the past so think he might have an edge in the creativity department.

    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador - think PK has the edge in adv over AM from a completely unbiased perspective. Like finch said above me, AM in his prime is someone I'd have a lot harder of a time predicting against.

    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface - hard to predict against rey with his 10-0 tear in spl, but linear's honestly amazing when he's on his A game, and this isn't SM. I do think linear can pull out a W and it'd be a pretty big upset that I'm hoping to see.

    sky chord vs undisputed - Another highlight. Do think tama might have a slight edge in playing ability alone, but will be excellent nonetheless.

    dekzeh vs teal6 - Something tells me dekzeh will take this more seriously :blobthinkingleft:

    Cowboy Dan vs ToF - Dan really does know his way around an adv match. That being said, ToF is one of the best players of all time and I can't exactly predict against him if he takes it seriously. My heart says Dan, at the very least.
    Earthworm vs Coffe - It's Earthworm and who the fresh L is coffe? I'd say Coffe has a fair chance in all honesty, he plays a lot more adv (that i see) than ew, but no one can really predict against him ;_;

    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem - should be a good one but i do think UD is favored here, seen more results out of him.

    M Dragon vs Fear - Do think mariano is gonna come out on top but should be a good one. as long as Fear doesnt get gracefully outplayed in the manner that frania did upon him should be a great set.

    SoulWind vs Colchonero - I really do think this one could go either way, even with SW on fire right now like Malekith and rey. Of course, I will be rooting for, and in that case cannot and should not actually predict against, my fellow battlegirl :v

    I wonder why Callous decided to randomize bracket every round. It's already double elimination so even if unfortunate pairing occurs (for instance hypothetically asta vs dekzeh). Guy who lost the match can still fight through loser bracket.

    dragonuser vs Triangles - rusty fighter vs polished modern day ADV chief. yea

    Mael vs Fakes - giving mael a 60-40 w/l ratio on this one, with advantages including more patience in reading and feeling out his opponent and their plays before committing on a particular path, and team building.

    Osgoode vs Malekith - didnt know Osgoode even played ADV LOL

    McMeghan vs Nails - this'll be a closer game than most think if Nails isnt fkin around but McM is consistent af so can't really doubt him in this one

    JabbaTheGriffin vs Astamatitos - i can't predict jabba bats bro. not tryna fk up my mental

    VIL vs Eden's Embrace - havent seen the Vet play adv in a minute but Sunny is relatively strong right now so he's a safe bet.

    Bomber vs autumn leaves - BKC is miles ahead in every compartment here. next

    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador - old school am wouldve taken this for sure but he's partially rusty in adv right now and im not sure if his teams are adaptable to the current meta, and i dont see him building new shit anytime soon so....yea. I hope i'm proven wrong tho cos matador is That Guy

    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface - tough to call tbh. truest 50/50 game in the batch i think next to...

    sky chord vs undisputed - ....these guys. I honestlycan't distinguish between these two as i Personally believe they play the exact same way lol. if i had to choose i'd go for tama though as he's a bit more experienced and can bust out something wild in a jiffy for that quick edge

    dekzeh vs teal6 - both mans arent as active but assuming equal investment id tip the edge to BRUTUS cos experience, proven adv master and consistentcy

    Cowboy Dan vs ToF - ToF plays adv bro? while on the other Cowboy Dan knows his shit so... :thinking:

    Earthworm vs Coffe - a few years back id auto-pick worms here but his adv game seems a bit wobbly from what i saw in snorlax cup plus im not very familiar with user Coffe(e?) so...no sugars here.

    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem - bab wins all. on a serious note ive seen both play and i think UD is a good pinch better so i have no problem siding with him here.

    M Dragon vs Fear - Mariano is washed up as fk bro. No contest.

    SoulWind vs Colchonero - ???????????????????

    SoulWind hasnt even graduated from my academy yet and......

    COLCHONERO PLAYS ADV???

    dragonuser vs Triangles - rooting for triangles b/c plucky brit
    Mael vs Fakes - I think the underdog Mael could take this one
    Osgoode vs Malekith - rooting for my buddy osgoode ;D
    McMeghan vs Nails - McM plays rly well even if I don't like his building
    JabbaTheGriffin vs Astamatitos - Think one of the best in the tour; could win the whole
    VIL vs Eden's Embrace - :b:unny :x: :regional_indicator_L: u can this *-* we gotta figure out what fire u gonna bring fren
    Bomber vs autumn leaves - imo defo a top contender, + hungry AF for the prize
    PhilosopherKing vs ace matador - time for new blood to show its power
    thelinearcurve vs reyscarface - rooting for linear
    sky chord vs undisputed - I put undi up there with asta and bkc... won the last adv cup without any issues last year, I think he's super solid and consistent
    dekzeh vs teal6 - rooting 4 teal but I think dekzeh could take this if he's motivated enough
    Cowboy Dan vs ToF - time for Dan to really show he's elite
    Earthworm vs Coffe - I think if he's motivated he has this. Coffe is very very good but we saw him fold in the last mt finals vs bkc and he's not good enough to go super far in this imo, just bc this is such an elite tour.
    Ugly Duckling vs Ibidem - Ibidem's PPL performance is promising :duck:
    M Dragon vs Fear - really looking forward to the dragon going as far as he can, definitely a favourite
    SoulWind vs Colchonero - looking to see colch prove me wrong... I've not seen him out of GSC but I also know GSC is not his favourite tier so I don't really know his full potential. SW is very strong but it's not his best tier idt.

    Maybe when you're done predicting my badass tour you can update PPL thread to reflect Beds's win. :)
