  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.

    Is psychic viable on ReflectLax instead of Ice Beam/Earthquake?

    - Body Slam
    - Reflect
    - Rest
    - Psychic

    Ice Beam means Snorlax gets walled by Gengar, and Earthquake means being walled by another ReflectLax.
    While psychic doesn't pack a punch like IB/EQ it covers everything - Gengar, Rhydon, Snorlax. And of course you have the special drops on Snorlax. Perhaps in an environment where you're unable to anticipate your opponent's team, such as the PS! ladder, psychic isn't such a bad option?

    Or am I missing some glaringly obvious drawback to using psychic?

    Main issue AFAIK is being unable to play for freeze on (Reflect) Chansey (this is the point of IB over Blizzard, as the latter is otherwise superior due to the 2HKO on Rocks).
