    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Seven of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ( 07/23-08/13 )! 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.

    Time zone: At the moment and up till September, GMT+4. From September, it'll be EST.
    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): That's the biggest problem; I'm not sure I can keep a solid level of consistency. A short while between 2PM - 6AM for the next month or so. I realize that this is too broad but I can't be any more specific. Apologies.

    A little about myself: Although I've been playing games all my life my biggest passions are music and football(soccer).
    Generation(s) I want to learn: I'd like to learn GSC OU, RSE OU and UU, as well asTeam Building and Prediction if possible.

    A little about myself: I jumped when I heard about netbattle (admittedly late from Wikipedia) and signed up. Went to the smogon battle server, got the crap beaten out of me. I revised my team, from what I use in-game to something a tad bit more competitive, it took a little longer to get the crap beaten out of me. >_> I'm trying to learn though.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Just Advanced OU, the basic general start-up stuff. Thanks, peace.

    Experience level: New to competitive battling. Tried to teach myself using the strategies but none of my teams seemed to work well together. I am undefeated in uncompetitive battles on Pokemon Silver but I would be easily defeated by a competitive battler. I have played since RBY and have just recently started Emerald.

    Generation(s) I want to learn: All

    I probably won't be paired up with anyone because of my timezone but... meh :koffing:
