Hey, my name is Niklas Henkel, I m 22 years old and from germany.
I m new to these forums, at least from a participating point of view
and urgently looking for a doubles BW OU tutor since I want to
participate in the upcoming International Challenge!
I just barely missed the applications for you current tutor program
and since you are partially responsible for the double tutoring, I figured
my best shot at getting in contact with someone motivated and competent
would be this message.
for the sake of it :
Username: Narya. Age: 22 Pokemon Online/Pokemon Showdown/Shoddy Username: NaryaDL0re Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT +1 (Germany) almost all day. What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU/UBERS but mainly OU doubles Tell us a little about yourself: I m currently studying law in leipzig, Pokemon has managed to keep under the radar of my competition oriented life since it snuck in so early and kept being part of my life for 15 years casually. I waited the later half of last year for BW2 to come out, since I didnt want to spent a lot of time into BW1, when I could have at least a halfway "fresh" start. I m a highly motivated, philosophical and clever person that learns and adapts very quickly.
Usually I would rather look for contacts with decent players to share and learn from, but since my actual competetive experience with pokemon solely lies in event coverage, forum threads, videos and the likes, I figured I d best be humble and look for an actual tutor to learn from.
So if for any reason you have someone in mind that can tutor me, or if not, a person
that is unofficially willing to help a quick minded person pick up the basics as well as the advanced skillsets, I d be very grateful.
Of course being thrown such a bone it would be only natural to show my gratitude
in one way or another. For example writing a very detailed high quality tutee talk or participating in the next tutor program officially?
Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: absolutely!!
I tried PMing you earlier, but I haven't gotten a response from you, so here's my application to be a tutor:
Username: Trinitrotoluene, Pirates_vs_Ninjas (on IRC)
Regular Online Hours (in EST): 7:00 P.M. - 10:00 P.M. on weekdays; all afternoon - evening on weekends; note that I am flexible in timing for weekdays

Tier(s): BW2 OU, BW1 OU
Why you should be accepted to tutor: I do consistently well on the ladder, and I'm a great team builder. I am a great teacher and dedicated to seeing others improve themselves. I can help my tutees improve their team building and battling abilities, at the very least, and introduce them to team rating if they show interest in it.
Pokemon Online/Pokemon Showdown/Shoddy Username: Don't have one or know how to get one :(
Your timezone and usual hours of availability: Pacific. All day
What tier do you want to learn?: ALL
Tell us a little about yourself: Been into Pokemon since I was a kid. I've played all of the Gameboy/DS games except for the 2nd and 3rd generations. I play competitive in the TCG scene and want to get into the competitive world in the video games. I have been doing some of my own research and there seems to be A LOT to learn that I just can not do on my own.
Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Sure

Personal Profile: Hey I'm a 23 year old male from Canada and I play pokemon a lot ^_^ I also enjoy hockey, video games other than pokemon and music.
I used to be a tutor for a bit last year but got too busy to continue. I have some free time so I should do something productive with it! I try to keep up with the trends in OU and have voted in the last couple suspect tests. I feel I have a good grasp on the tier and can help with battling skills, team building and general advice. I'm a friendly guy who gets along with everyone and I will do my best to help my tutee out! Thanks for your time.
Username: Far Canal/Stalltaria
Timezone: GMT +10 (Brisbane, Australia)
Regular Online Hours: 4pm-11pm
Tier(s): BW RU, Can do BW OU
Personal Profile: Hey there, I'm Far Canal (ON PS) ^__^ i'm 18 and I have been playing pokemon since red/blue/yellow, which means i've been playing for most of my life! I'm addicted to pokemon, one of those people who easily maxes the hours on every cartridge, and then spends even more time on PS.
I play alot of RU with people like The Captain and Rust.
I've done a little bit of tutoring for players in some of the BA (Bald Accountant) groups here on smogon, for OU, but I haven't really put myself out like this before.
Willing and able =)
I think I would be a good tutor because helping is second nature, I enjoy playing a prediction based game, and team building. I'm one of those people who will spend hours and hours team building, testing and editing teams, rather than just using 1 team and laddering. I find that through this though, I find more ways to overcome specific threats, and ways to play around the general meta. Plus it's fun to beat OU teams with an RU team =)
And I want to pass this on! <3 RU, and thankyou for your time
Timezone: EST (GMT -4)
Regular Online Hours (in EST): Varies, but typically after 6 PM

Tier(s): BW2 RU, BW2 NU
Why should you be accepted to tutor?
I think I would be a good tutor because I can explain and help people. I can extend my methods of tutoring from Calculus and Chemistry to Pokemon, so the tutee(sp?) can learn the best, which is have them try it, but be available if they make a mistake or start to question something. Right now my actual battling time is a bit constrained right now due to college and upcoming exams. However, I'm knowledgeable in both tiers above, but more RU than NU. Here are some example posts: 1, 2, 3
Username: Lady Alex
Regular Online Hours (in EST): 3:00 PM-8:00 PM
Tier(s): BW2 OU
Why should you be accepted to tutor? I'm a good player who is very experienced with the OU metagame, and I want to help other players be as good as they can. I'm an avid team builder, making top 100 for OU's Dark Horse project 12 times, and am familiar with teambuilding for every common playstyle.
Smogon nickname: WhiteQueen
Time zone: EST
Tier: BW2 UU
Availability: can only teach on weekends -- hours flexible
I want to get more people involved in BW2 UU by spreading my wealth of knowledge of the tier. I have consistently topped the underused ladder, per-hail, post-hail, it really doesn't matter. Also. I am currently a finalist in the OU Calvary 3 tournament, which is pretty much a BW2 UU tournament. Can't think of anything else to say here.
Pokemon Showdown Name: Musubi Kazesaru
Time Zone: Eastern Time Zone
Tiers: OU, NU, RU, UU
I'd like to tutor someone and pass on what I know about the world of Pokemon (battles). I'm well versed in each and every individual Pokemon, Types (What's good against what and what attacks and Pokemon will help you be prepared against most threats offensively and defensively), and I'm particularly good at using unorthodox movesets to great effect. I'm best at OU battling due to playing it the most, but I'm pretty good with NU. RU and UU (especially after the huge power shift this gen) I haven't played to much, but when I do I'm pretty good, whether I have experience enough. I'm pretty good at teaching in general and look forward to helping any possible students
