I've had this really really large spreadsheet for Nintendo Cup 1999 kicking around in the side format thread for Gen 1. Thoughts on adding it here?

It includes:
  • Big page on the ruleset
  • Viability Rankings ported from Pokemon Battle Historia, the Japanese community for Nintendo Cup and other formats.
  • Speed Tiers
  • Critical Hit Chances
  • HP Stats VS Seismic Toss (I was bored)
  • Analyses for every ranked Pokemon in the format.
  • Sample Teams
I'll likely make more of these as time goes on. Feel free to criticise me on anything you feel is off about it, I'm all ears!

I decided to be a psychopath and make a big compendium for RBY Resources that have picked up over the years, across various websites. It was a wild ride going through stuff dating back to the early 2000s! I contacted a bunch of RBYheads who've been around longer than me for recommendations. I think there are more places I could go to, but this is what dropped anyway.

I mainly made this since the RBY Community has a penchant for hopping from place to place, which has resulted in stuff being lost or unnecessarily remade over time. This aims to at least partially solve the problem, by providing one place for players to go without sifting through hundreds of pages (or outright forgetting the resource exists).

Includes resources from:
  • Smogon
  • Pokemon Perfect
  • RBY 2k20
  • RBY 2k10 (Thank you WayBack Machine)
    • There are bits missing, specifically the "Advanced Guides", but I found one of the old owners who's gonna see if the stuff can be salvaged.
  • THE Alternative
  • Azure Heights
  • GameFAQs
I've arranged them by website, then by date. The date factors are there, so you can get an idea of how outdated the resource is, so you can avoid those (or view them for a historical context!). I would categorize by format, but it turned out to be a bit weird with some stuff just having one resource when it's a valid format (eg. Petit Cup, PP 5U). It also meant I'd have to put the website every time, and then there was just more weird technicalities...it's hard to handle.

In my opinion, for someone who doesn't know where to start, Smogon and Pokemon Perfect seem to have the best resource quantity.

If anyone has other places they want me to dive into, or additional resources to add, just shoot me a message.

I also noticed my NC99 Spreadsheet is on the OM bit; there's two more you may wanna slap on if you want more;

If you're interested in old stuff for historical reasons (like stuff where you can find the same information elsewhere) RJones's strategy guide from Gamefaqs is a great old school source.

I've also attached a .txt version of Kamex's RBYStuff Guide. This was originally shared as a .rtf but I cant attach rtf files here. I think this was used for the shoddy RBY engine, so indicates what we knew about RBY mechs in 2005. It's mostly pretty detailed and accurate, but there have been new discoveries since then.

These two were my main sources of info for most of my playing time.

Also, these days, Bulbapedia is an awesome resource for all gens, RBY included. It is the easiest place to go to find a reasonably accurate explanation of any particular mechanic.

Oh, wow, these are seriously cool! Kamex's doc is especially interesting, I didn't actually know Stadium used 96px health bars. I added an "Other Resources" section for any future stuff. Will also be useful in the future since I'm sure there's more.

EDIT: It seems that it was up for DL on GameFAQs, and seems to be a previous revision of the Battle Information Guide that was already on the list. The version on GameFAQs was last updated on Dec 05, this was from Mar 05.
