Your timezone and usual hours of availability: Central, more or less available every day and time except Tuesday evenings.
What tier do you want to learn?: I have no strong preference as to tier.
Tell us a little about yourself (also Under 25 Posts explanation): I've been playing Pokemon since Red version, which of course I got because it had a dragon on it. I loved dragons, picked Charmander never understanding that it was hard mode Pokemon, and been addicted ever since. Unfortunately I never really had anyone to play with when I was little, and Pokemon is so much more fun when you have people to play with.
A friend I play another game with - Rayuaz from Haven and Hearth - recommended me to these forums when I expressed interest in learning more about competitive battling. For the most part I am clueless, having only done single player things. Of course I understand type advantages and disadvantages, PP, et cetera - but when you get into EVO, Natures, the potential of Held items and heaven forbid breeding and teammaking? I'm an utter novice.
I'm a bit older than most people you find playing Pokemon; and I'm a girl. Don't let either of these things put you off, I sure don't plan on letting them hold me back.
I have no strong preference for Tier as there's only one Pokemon I've fallen in love with (due to his moveset potential and the fact I could never beat him on Pokemon Stadium) and one Pokemon does not a team make. That.. and honestly I could not name six Pokemon within the same tier without consulting forums unless you counted "unevolved."
I catch on quick, I have Skype. I'd love the opportunity to be shown the ropes; I just joined and it seems silly to start posting things without first knowing what on earth I'm doing.
