    Tell us a little about yourself:
    I'm playing Pokemon for about 2 years competitivly and have been an average player since then. My biggest problem ist teambuilding and it happens way to often that I just lose matches because I don't know how to handle the situation to win the game.

    Timezone and usually hours of availability : Wester Europe (GMT+1), I'm available all day on week-end and wednesday afternoon.
    What tier do you wish to learn ? : BW OU
    Tell us a little about you : I've been playing to pokemon for 2 years and achieved an average level, but I'm still unable to build good teams and I feel that my skills are not good enough to be a pretty good player. Although I've tried to improve my skills on my own, I think I need help to reach to a higer level.

    Why do I have less than 25 posts : I don't often post on smogon because I think I need to get more knowledge to write something interesting. I don't want to write useless posts. Being able to fit in the community is the reason why I want to be tutored.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW LC
    Tell us a little about yourself: I like cheese.

    Why I have less than 25 posts: I am quite a seasoned player, although only as a lurker in the shadows, for which I have been for over 4 years now. The reason I want to learn to play Little Cup is because I've only ever played OU in the past 3 generations, without even setting foot once in any other tier. I'm sick to death of the same old teams and the same old strategies; I'd like to break the mould and play something completely different. Little Cup has fascinated me for a long time, yet I'm really sure where to begin with it. I feel as if the tutoring program may help rekindle my interest in competitive Pokemon and allow me to make a more active contribution to the forums.

    Tell us a little about yourself: Hi, I live in Brazil and am 17 years old. I play pokemon here in Smogon for almost two years now, and I really wish to further learn about the current metagame, especially through using less used pokemon and running away from the conventional. Furthermore, I also hope to learn how to competently build teams that have synergy with the other team-mates. I play the piano and soccer also!

    Tell us a little about yourself:I live in Canada and I'm 19 years old. I am a student in 3D animation and I play hockey and pokemon a lot (of course!). I've been playing since G/S/C generation ,but I want to improve in the competitive way.Why I should be tutored even though I have less than 25 posts: I've been praticing for a long time, but I lack of knowledge: I'm stuck at a point which I can't solve it by myself. Whenever I want to rate teams, I don't feel confident. Please, help me to evolve. ;)

    Didn't get a tutor last round. Any tutor : Gotta love them all!

    Tell us a little about yourself: I like to lurk in the IRC and on the forums to get a feel for the community. I spend a lot of time playing Minecraft on the Smogon server and I'd like to get back in touch with pokemon. I like to make silly jokes and puns but I also realize when it's time to serious up, like BW OU.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW Ubers
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been tutored by Jackal in RBY, PokemaniacBob in GSC, and MoP in ADV UU. I've been into competitive battling since 2003, but I've been transiently out-of-commission due to college. I am well-played in BW OU and UU, and want to wet my hands in Ubers. I've battled some Ubers in ADV and DPP in the past, but the meta environment is still quite different with the new non-Uber / Uber mons as well as Arseus making a splash.

    2 hours later and I'm finally done! Click this to view the pairings for this round, or check the first post for a list.

    As you can see, most tutors have taken on two tutees due to the fact that we have a limited out of tutors and such high demand. There were a ton of BW OU requests, but we only have a limited amount of tutors for the metagame, so yeah. As usual, timezones made it a bit hard to assign tutors, but I did the best I could! If a tutee becomes inactive during the course of this round, they will be dropped. As such, there's a chance that someone who didn't get a tutor today could get get a tutor at a later date.

    Happy learning everyone, let's make this a great round! Make sure to contact your tutors as soon as possible. Feel free to PM me if anything goes wrong or if any questions arise.
