    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Eight of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ending on SEPTEMBER 10TH! I've decided to make this round a week longer to facilitate a more in-depth learning experience. If you are a NEW PLAYER and wish to get a tutor for this round all you have to do is post your profile in the format below. Tutors will be an excellent resource for you to learn Pokemon team building and battling strategies, as well as someone who can help "initiate" you into the Smogon Community. They are here for you...so take advantage!

    A little about myself:
    Generation(s) I want to learn:

    *You don't have to be good...just willing to learn. So, don't be shy; Sign up now!

    The tutors will view this thread and choose their apprentices based on the generations they want to learn and their regular online hours. Once they have made a choice, they will contact me through a PM and I will keep an updated list of tutors and their apprentices. Tutors will also PM the person they have chosen to teach and set up times to meet. Apprentices are also encouraged to be proactive in searching for their tutor.

    If a tutor doesn't find a match, I will begin assigning the remaining tutors to appropriate apprentices. If you are still looking for a tutor after all tutors have been assigned...you have the option of looking through the tutor roster and PM'ing a suitable person (one who teaches the generation you want to learn and is online during similar hours) to ask them if they will take you on as a second apprentice. It's as simple as that!!

    If at any point during this round you encounter a problem (difficulty getting together with your tutor, etc.), let me know and we will work to resolve the issue.

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): 7am - 7pm since it's summer holidays, so I'm pretty flexible whenever you want to teach me.
    Experience level*: I never played competitively during RBY and GSC, but I got into Netbattle three weeks ago and have been playing quite a bit. I've read lots of guides so I know the basics, but still need polishing with prediction, teambuilding, EV setting, etc.
    A little about myself: I like Magic, video gaming, Pokemon. I'm a quick learner.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Advance OU, maybe a little UU if we finish the course quickly.

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!):9 AM to 11 PM. Pretty much all day, until school starts.
    Experience level*:I'm somewhat decent, and I've read some of the articles here, but I'm not much of a predictor, I have trouble with EVs beyond general "do I want this stat or not" things, and I could use more experience in team building. I actually used to play NB waaaay back when GSC was the newest metagame, but I wasn't much good and I stopped before RSE came out.
    A little about myself:I used to be a little n00b who used Scratch/Fire Spin/Flamethrower/Slash Charizard in Stadium. Thank your lucky stars I've gone beyond that sort of thing a while ago since I started using my head in battle. And before you ask, my name's from some mountain that I originally looked up to get a name for a Rock type.
    Generation(s) I want to learn:Advance OU and UU, with OU taking priority.

    Edit: 10AM - 11PM... I think...

    Experience level*: Been playing for just over a year now. TBH I'm quite capable in all metagames. Chances are I wont need the full 3 or so weeks to sort out what I need doing. I've done well in tourneys with experienced battlers before and even beaten a couple of the tutors on this program, so, yeah...
    A little about myself: I am male. That says it all I suppose.... (Crazy Starwolf would make a good tutor for me ;))
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Modern day RSE OU. I used to be good but these days I always seem to have a gaping weakness in whatever team I try to make. Just a few pointers on the standards of today and how to build teams to counter them is about all I need.

    A little about myself: I'm male, I like music and stuff and I want to get even better at Pokémon if that is possible.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: At the moment just RSE OU; I need to get better at team building. I'm usually good at it, but recently I've found it rather hard to build teams that work well, I need a bit of help with this. (I'd like to be taught by Crazy Starwolf :) )
