  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.

    Please read through this thread if you wish to write an analysis. The format is listed below, and then beneath that is a description of what to have in your analysis title's suffix as your analysis progresses to completion. In addition, note that sprites can be found here.

    Note: Set Name | The Set | Set Details is the part that is repeated for each set a Pokémon has.
    The given format is the minimum: more can be added if you wish. For example, it is the standard on Smogon to have Team Options and Usage Tips after Set Details for a set. Another commonly found feature is, when considering a Pokemon where there is another Pokemon which is very similar (for example, with Nidoking and Nidoqueen) it is common to see a comparison between the two Pokemon explaining the often more subtle differences between the two.

    When listing multiple EV spreads for a set, indicate the different EV spread with a bolder OR.

    When your analysis is unfinished, put [WIP] in your title.

    Once you have finished writing your analysis, put [Discussion Ready] in the title. If you are an experienced writer who has written several analyses, it is optional to skip this step.

    Once your analysis is considered sufficiently detailed and accurate by the community, change it to [GP Ready] and post it in the GP Queue. GP stands for Grammar and Prose:
    we do this to improve analyses' clarity and quality. Note that the standard on Pokemon Perfect is British English.

    Once the GP team are happy that your analysis is complete, change the suffix to [Done] or if you prefer, have no suffix.

    ---

    Articles can be written in languages other than English (though if using English, please use British English). Everything else on this page applies to non-English analyses too.

    If an analysis is a translation, at the end of the analysis, indicate this and link to the original analysis.

    Analyses written in languages other than English will be listed in the Analysis Index too, in a separate section indicating the language used.

    I'm going to cover here what are the rules should you want to transfer your own work to or from another site (such as Smogon). It partially depends on the rules of each site, but since Smogon and Pokemon Perfect have the same terms and conditions (at time of writing) transfer works the same way between either site, although etiquette may be different.

    In summary: You retain the copyright for any content which you have contributed, however if you wish to transfer your contributions which someone else on the site has contributed to (for example, for a Grammar and Prose check) then their permission is required as well.

    Smogon's terms of service can be found here. Pokemon Perfect's terms of service can be found here.

    The specific wording of the terms of service relating to the reproduction of content:
    ---

    Currently for analyses, the only form of modification of content by third parties which we have is through Grammar and Prose edits. You can acquire a Grammar and Prose member's permission to reproduce content which they have edited directly. Also, if a Grammar and Prose member wishes to give permission for all content which they edit, they can inform me and be added to the first list below. Equally, if a Grammar and Prose member does not wish to give permission for any of their edited content to be reproduced elsewhere then they can inform me and be added to the second list below.

    Grammar and Prose members who give permission for all of their content which they edit to be reproduced elsewhere:
    -

    Grammar and Prose members who do not give permission for any of their content to be reproduced elsewhere:
    -
