  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.

    After a long wait, we are back with the Fourth Edition of Pokemon Perfect League this year hosted by FriendOfMrGolem120 and tjdaas. PPL (Pokemon Perfect League) is a premier league style tournament, based on the SPL format, where players get drafted by teams and compete against each other round robin style. This tour will follow the Global Tournament Rules outlined in this thread and the rules below. Please read them carefully if have not seen them, especially if you want to manage. Some rules will be added later when the managers are known, e.g. retentions and the maximum number of players.

    Tiers


    PPL will feature 6 tiers, and every team will have 8 players in its lineup every week. The tiers are as follows,
    2x RBY OU (Bo3),
    1x GSC OU,
    2x ADV OU,
    1x HGSS OU,
    1x BW OU,
    1x ORAS OU,
    where all tiers, except RBY, are bo1. As you can see, both RBY and ADV have two slots. We will not randomize these slots: the player which one team places in the first slot will face the player from the other team placed in the first slot. All tiers use the smogon rulesets. Any tied game, in the first four gens, counts as a tie and will not be replayed.

    Prize

    The winning team will get the medal for PPL Champion: [​IMG]

    Team Matchups

    The 6 or 8 teams will play each other round robin style, where every team faces a new team every week for 5 or 7 weeks. After this, the teams with the highest amount of points will move on to the playoffs. If PPL has 6 teams, the highest ranked team will go immediately to the final and have a week off, whereas the second and third ranked team play each other in the semi-finals. If there are 8 teams then the top 4 will move onto the semi-finals where the first ranked team is matched up vs the fourth ranked team and the second placed team will play the third ranked team. If two or multiple teams are tied in points, battle differentials (the number of wins minus the number of losses) will determine the placement of the teams. If this is still insufficient, the head to head record will determine the placement, except in the instance where one of the teams face elimination. In those instances, as well as instances where the two teams also tied in a head to head, a tiebreaker will be played with the format of RBY OU / Tier picked by one team's manager / Tier picked by the other team's manager. If there are 3 or more teams tied, the host and GTT will convene to decide how to break the tie.

    Hello guys, here is an invite for our server: Dracarys

    You can contact us on discord for anything PPL related. Also, we will be mostly reviewing replays instead of trying players out. So, feel free to send us replays of yours in the tiers you are interested in playing.

    PPL 4 ADV Power rankings

    thelinearcurve and Watchog
    This is the best power duo ever.
    Watchog is so pure and gentle and cute.
    thelinearcurve is so pure and gentle and cute.
    I enjoy watching them play Advance OverUsed. They are my favorite PPL duo.
    When they win, I think to myself "yes".
    When the other team wins I think to myself "no".

    ...

    Nevermind they were separated by the evil auction :(

    It's a belated punishment for spamming fullpass. Justice served like a hot cooked chicken
