    Time zone: Pacific
    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): Anytime Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday really.
    Experience level*: Almost none. I got Pokemon Emerald for free a few weeks ago when I bought my DS. I've never played against another person or used Netbattle. The most skillful thing I can boast is playing the battle factory to try and learn things.
    A little about myself: I've never even played Pokemon til recently, although I have a few friends who do and are quite good, apperantly. I mainly want some practice against other living players, as well as basic Poke experience so I don't get utterly destroyed by the aforementioned friends on Diamond and Pearl wifi when that comes out. I'm not much of a videogamer, but i've always enjoyed tactical games and this one has appealed to me. I'm usually not the most amazing player at any sort of game, but i'm patient and take constructive criticism well. I'm also some kind of artist. I draw cartoons.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: ADV overused, underused, and never used. I really don't like ubers, so i'll stay away from those. Also I need to learn basic netbattle and Pokemon rules and etiquette. Like I said, i've never even played against another person before. I have no clue what is allowed and what isn't.

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): 3PM-10 PM on weekdays, 11AM-9PM most of the time on weekends
    Experience level*: Okay at UU, not the best, but not the worst, would like some more skills though. Better at rby and ubers thanks to previous tutors.
    A little about myself: I am a good predictor and a decent team builder. I don't really like to share persona; info. I am very friendly though and I wouldn't give anyone a hard time.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: GSC UU if there is anyone that could teach it. if not, that is okay. I've had many tutors and am sure there are people that would like them more than me.

    Ok, I'm out of tutors already guys! Our server kicking us off and everything really made this round a bit disjointed...so I'm moving back the end to September 10th. Until then, you are to meet with your tutoring partner as many times as possible.

    To anyone who would still like to get a tutor, you may PM any of them listed in the first post of this thread to see if they will take you on. Any tutors accepting additional apprentices will receive extra reputation boosts when that time comes. Thanks to everyone who is participating!
