  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.

    This format is to be used for all World Championship formats. It was originally debuted in the 2016 RBY 1U World Championship in RBY 1U Season #10. Note that FT2W is short for First To 2 Wins, and FT3W is short for First To 3 Wins.

    As noted in the Season #10 Schedule thread, we are having a World Championship tournament during the season. The format is a new one designed by Lutra, with an accompanying points system designed by me. Lutra first tested this new format in an RBY Ubers World Championship Tournament on Smogon, to great success. I will explain the format and the points system here. Please note also that this tournament will not be seeded.

    If the tournament is 16-person:
    If the tournament is 32-person:
    Points system:

    The choice of points system depends on the points system of the Master Tournaments of the Season in which the world championship is included (known as the associated season).

    If the Master Tournaments of the associated season are FT3W/Bo5:

    • For multi-stage rounds:
      • If you move onto the subsequent round you get 5 points.
      • If you do not move onto the subsequent round, you get points equal to the number of battles you have won.
    • For ordinary rounds you get points equal to the number of battles won.

    Note: In the event of a 16-person tournament, the maximum number of points available is 16. In the event of a 32-person tournament, the maximum number of points available is 21.

    Alternatively, if the Master Tournaments of the associated season are FT2W/Bo3:

    • For multi-stage rounds:
      • If you move onto the subsequent round you get 2 points.
      • If you do not move onto the subsequent round, you get points equal to the number of sets you have won.
    • For ordinary rounds you get points equal to the number of battles won.

    Note: In the event of a 16-person tournament, the maximum number of points available is 10. In the event of a 32-person tournament, the maximum number of points available is 12.

    If the Master Tournaments are not pure single elimination tournaments, it is up to the season host to decide which points system is appropriate.
