    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Eleven of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ending on November 12th. 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.

    IF YOU SIGN UP CHECK THIS THREAD REGULARLY TO FIND OUT WHO YOUR TUTOR IS. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE APPRENTICE TO SEEK OUT THEIR TUTOR AND ESTABLISH MEETING TIMES.

    Available Tutors: NONE

    CHECK YOUR POST TO SEE WHO YOUR TUTOR IS. I'VE EDITED IT TO SHOW WHO YOU GOT.

    Age: 14​

    Time zone: EST​

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): I'm not sure about what EDT is, so: Usually 4-5:30 EST, with exceptions.​

    Experience level: Not that experienced, I don't know much about movesets, EVs, IVs, etc, but I'm willing to learn. =D​

    A little about myself: What to put here..., Well, I'm a pretty fast learner, and a good listener. I like electric and water types, too, if that helps. ^^; I've been playing Pokemon since RBY days, but I wasn't into other aspects of the game. I recently picked up Emerald Version, and I'm hooked. xD Now I want to learn more about it.​

    Generation(s) I want to learn: R/S/E UU, some ADV UU. I would like to learn how to make good movesets.​
