    Welcome to round 55 of Battling 101. If you were tutored last round, make sure you send in you tutor evaluations. Our tutors dedicate a lot of time to this program and the evaluations help us assess their contributions. If you are seeking a tutor, you're in the right place. Fill out the information below to be assigned a tutor.

    What tier do you want to learn?:
    Tell us a little about yourself:

    To clear up any confusion, here is an example of what Philip7086's application would look like:

    Username: Philip7086
    Age: 22
    Shoddy Username: Philip7086, Pro Bro
    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT-8, 4:00PM-2:00AM
    What tier do you want to learn?: DP OU.
    Tell us a little about yourself: I had to ask my boss if I could get out of work early to post my Pokemon apprentice application.

    I deleted all of my posts because they were all terrible. I really want to learn how to play Pokemon the right way because I have struggled with it for so long and put in a lot of time to get better, but can't improve at all.

    YOU MUST PROVIDE A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY YOU SHOULD BE TUTORED IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 25 POSTS. Additionally, you must be able to use Pokémon Online, or at least Shoddy Battle (if you only wish to learn DPP OU).

    Important: In addition, after your time of tutoring, please take the time to fill in the evaluation form and send it to the entire tutoring staff. This helps us on so many levels!

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW OU, DPP OU, (BW team building takes priority)
    Tell us a little about yourself: im a 15 year old guy that loves sports and video games. In BW OU i still feel my team building skills are somewhat lacking and could use some help. Although the real reason I want to get tutored this round is to break into a brand new fields for me, DPP OU. Ive noticed that alot of tournaments are in DPP OU and since ive never played that tier I cant really join them. So i was wondering if I could get tutored in it :). Also DPP is a major tier for smogon tour. but yea im a 15 year old guy that loves basketball and lacrosse :)

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: 20, tennis player, sexy as sin, etc. I know the metagame, and I am pretty solid on the teambuilding, but I need to learn how to make better plays and not to choke my brains out. It would be nice to be able to make voting requirements for once instead of getting to 1350 and losing because of a dumb move x.x

    Requesting Stone_Cold because he's a boss.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I've dabbled in a lot of things and find I usually have a competitive nature, but almost always require some form of instruction to get a good start. I took martial arts for over half of my life, played Tennis in HS, and love all things RPG. So far I've come to enjoy the atmosphere of the Smogon forums and their IRC pages, despite having only recently joined in on it. I've tried to be more active, but I find I know too little to really add to most of the threads, which is something I wish to change. I've played pokemon since the days of the bulky gameboy and buggy first gen mechanics, although my competitive play has only recently started (during ADV, although I never got too far). I wish to participate in B101 so that I can learn to be better in competitive and stop making the awful prediction calls in my matches on pokemon online, as well as to be better capable of contributing to the forums and discussions on IRC. Thanks for taking the time to read my block of text!

    Tell us a little about yourself: I love the game of pokemon, but outside of that I love many different things like football, chess, and cooking. Thats pretty much it I guess. Hoping there are more Uu tutors this time around so I can learn the meta better.

    If possible id like to be tutored by someone who can play balanced teams.

    What tier do you want to learn?: ADV OU,DPP OU(backup)
    Tell us a little about yourself: I feel like i have 5th gen down and i realized based on the tour(which is my first full tour i ever participated in) my adv was my weak link and I hope with some help i can be more competitive in ADV OU tours. The thing is I don't really know anything about the metagame besides basic mechanics so Id love to learn how to construct ADV teams and guidelines on how i should approach and adv battle.

    Enz0 said he would tutor me

    Edit: Enz0 said he would be too busy for this tutoring period. So i guess whoever is good at adv and is open then.

I also wanna learn how to play the amazing tier called DPP OU, with this tier as priority. I also signed up last round, but they didn't choose me.

    Tell us a little about yourself:I grew up around pokemon, and when I found out about competitive, I was instantly hooked. I really really would love to learn more about it, and become a better battler. I know the basics, but not much more. I don't have more than 25 posts, but I have quite many on Serebii, and I use Smogon all the time, just never ventured to the forums, but I'm going to be here much more often. I really hope I am chosen to be tutored, because I would really love to be better.

    I generally roll with balanced teams.

    As for my personal interests, I love music. Its so thrilling to me. I also love singing and playing guitar. I really want to learn to play the cello as well. :3

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm just your average teenage guy who enjoys playing Pokemon, along with many other video games, while not spending time on schoolwork or chilling with my friends. I played pretty well during mid to late DPP, but have been struggling a lot to adapt to BW. The two main things I need help with are improving my mediocre technique on the battlefield and my team building skills. I could also use some detailed insight on the current metagame though I already know a thing or two about the basics.

    Hey Im InsanityVoid I know most stuff about pokemon but I can't make teams or predict moves very well I have been competitively battling for a Long time but never seemed to get the hang of it.

    I do have less than 25 post and I think I should be tutored because i am really terrible at battling atm D= and I think I would very much benefit from doing this tutoring program hope I get in =)
