    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Sixteen of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ending on March 25th. 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!

    Experience level*: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.

    Available tutors:

    Acura, Aeolus, Aeroblacktyl, Anomalous, Giga Punch, gotei(13) hyorinmaru, GreenPikachu, Groudon80, Floppy, Holyknight, husk, Jackal, Judgement, Jumpman16, Kongler, latinoheat, Lexay, Mekkah, Mystica, Nate, Roy, Sir Chris, skarm, Steelicks, Warthog, Who Knows, Yosuke, zerowing, zfs

    ****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.

    ****CHECK YOUR POST TO SEE WHO YOUR TUTOR IS. I WILL EDIT IT TO SHOW WHO YOU GOT.

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT/EST): Mostly every night from midnight to 5:30 AM EST. Mondays and Tuesdays I'll take a little longer to get online.
    Experience level: Low. I've read some of the articles on the site but I lack actual experience and often still have problems remembering what types are weak or resistant to what.
    A little about myself: I'm going to require some patience, as I tend to take my time with everything. I want to get better so that I can be competitive on WiFi, and because of that I'd like to kind of stay away from using things I really won't be able to make use of in the game, such as Celebi and Hidden Power moves. If possible I'd like to see my tutor almost, if not every day of the week.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Advance OU/BL
