  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.

    -Fire Blast
    -Body Slam
    -Hyper Beam
    -Rest / Flamethrower

    Set Details

    Rest, while Flamethrower provides an accurate STAB for fully reliable damage and extra PP.

    Other Options

    Reflect greatly improves. Leer help Arcanine break Rest Arcanine, Porygon and Staryu by softening their defense enough to outpace their recovery. Agility can be used to immediately negate the speed drop of paralysis. If Dig is legal, then that can be used for coverage to threaten notable damage against Omastar and Kabutops, as well as other Fire-types and Gastly, though an opponent can exploit the free turn it gives.

    Checks and Counters

    Omastar strongly resists all of Arcanine's attacks, at worst being annoyed by paralysis or a burn. Blastoise and Slowpoke. Porygon (check). Opposing Rest Arcanine
