    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Four of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ( 5/14-6/18 )! 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.

    Experience level*: Somewhat decent in RS OU but I can use some finishing touches to it.
    A little about myself: School starts June 7th for me (summer started March 9th). Which really, really fucks up my online time (drastic changes to be expected). I'm a fast learner though. So if I get sessions everyday it should be okay.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: RS OU team building primarily, if not then RS Ubers or RS UU.

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): I can be on anytime my tutor is (which is from about 7am EDT - 1pm EDT. From June 5 though I'll be on from 6/10am-1pm Thursday (probably) and 6-8pm EDT/ Fridays. Every other day its 2 hours from 6am - 8am EDT
    Experience level*: I'd say I'm pretty decent at predicting, and ADV OU, albeit sometimes crumbling under pressure, even if I have it won. I think 102746826450 battles would help further my "decency" at adv ou, but I stress I really need someone who can teach me build very good teams pretty easily in ADV. I'd deeply appreciate if my tutor is both a monster predictor and one who could help me build very, very solid teams on my own
    A little about myself: Fuck school
    Generation(s) I want to learn: RBY OU/GSC OU, and team building in RBY/ADV

    Experience level*: I started back in '04, but then I had a one and a half year hiatus. Back then Celebi and Jirachi were still banned, so I 'm waay behind. I can predict, but that was then.
    A little about myself: Missed Pokemon due to school dammit
    Generation(s) I want to learn: is ADV fr/lg? If so, Team Building/Prediction there. I had team building issues back then when I would just put cune/spiker/dusclops together in a team, and now there is Celebi and Jirachi to worry about. So yeah that, and update on the current metagame. That is all.
