  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.

    So most of you have probably already seen this but we need everyone to be as vocal as possible against this change.

    Smogon have decided to "automate their tiering"across all gens. The announcement is pinned in RoA and all old gens have been affected too.

    "Currently the ORAS OU usage cut off is 3.41%, based on the number of fully evolved pokemon in each generation we have decided to implement an automated tiering system, RBY Ubers now consists of Mewtwo, Mew and any pokemon with greater than 52.11% usage in RBY OU in the month of March 2016, the pokemon affected are Tauros (86.49%), Exeggutor (82.06%), Chansey (79.64%), Snorlax (74.80%) and Alakazam (52.21%). Full tier listing are below"

    Smogon historically has not been great at listening to the concerns of old gen players so we all need to voice our disapproval for this change being implemented in a of the old gens

    This is a huge blow to rby as a whole. It will divide the community, throw pokemon into chaos and bring about the death of the internet and everything else. Smogon must be stopped because they are ruining the metagame.
