  2. Welcome to Pokemon Perfect, Guest!

    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. Signups Open gives you a list of tournaments you can join, and Ongoing lists tournaments that you might want to follow. Additionally, you can tap to find out approximate Schedules for tournaments.

    For historical threads, check out Signups Closed, Finished tournaments and Results. We also have Nominations, Voting and Event threads for exhibitions – past and present.

Community Hmm... probably about time I did one of these

    Hello everyone. I signed up for this website in September 2016 and besides for some spotty play in tournaments my only claim to fame has been a month long grind to #1 on the Gen 1 OU ladder (which I shamelessly made my avatar).

    For anyone who doesn’t know; me I tend to run an annoying Dragonite team that is either a push over or the most annoying thing you have ever seen. Hopefully one of these days I will have success in a tournament rather than just getting frustrated over RNG and phoning it in. That or maybe one day I will learn to play standard ;)

    Hello and welcome (ehrm... I guess?) to Pokemon Perfect! It's been a while since I last saw you come back a couple of weeks ago, good to see you're back.

    As you probably figured out, ladder play is completely different from tournament play. Running the same strategy over and over is probably not good in tournament play because you'll be very easily counter-teamed, which leads to poorer results. whereas on ladder that usually works. So yeah, I'd definitely recommend understanding how standard works haha.

    Hope to see you here more often!
