    Welcome to round 75 of Battling 101. If you are seeking a tutor, you're in the right place. Fill out the information below to be assigned a tutor.

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

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

    Important: Don't forget about the new Tutee Talk forum, including what we expect of you guys if you are chosen as tutees!

    One more thing: If you were skipped in the round before this one, make a note somewhere in your sign-up post that this was the case. It makes it easier for us when we do the pairings.

    Pokemon Online/Pokemon Showdown/: Blizz' (PO) / brizz (PS!)
    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT+1. I'm available pretty much all the time, so I think I'll be able to modify my hours of availability according to my tutor's preferences.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing this game for looong time, but I've never been that good, so I'd like to improve with the help of a good player. Also, I've never been posting on this forum much, so I think that joining this project would be a good chance to integrate :)
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: sure

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT (currenty DST). I am avaiable until 3am (in my timezone) and usually wake up at 11/12am (also in my timezone).
    I am on hollidays so I can be the entire day in the computer if needed. (11am-3am)
    What tier do you want to learn?: All BW (preference in BW UU)
    Tell us a little about yourself: I am a portuguese player that started playing in the last DPPt months. I played BW since it started but I also was away from Pokémon for an entire half year many times. I want to finish this generation being able to play well in all the tiers and specially in UU so I can preparate my beginning in X/Y with good basis. I am signing in the program to improve my playstyle.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Yes

    PS: I only have 5 posts but I already made a RMT and I signed in smogon to learn with the experts. My hope is to become better at Pokémon with your help and be able to comment your posts with knowledge on the subject aswell as participating in your tournaments. I don't know if there's a rule about novices not being able to participate in Battle 101 but I saw some guys trying to tell that they want to be in Battle 101 despite not having the required activity and I edited the post to tell the same. I want to participate in smogon but also have a basis to start.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: Seeing as how I’m going to get pretty busy once summer ends late August, I thought it’d be a good time for me to become good at this game so I can afford the time to continue playing Pokemon, a game I really love, whenever I have the free time to do so. If you want to know my playstyle, it’s bulky offense. I love Infernape and Lati@s, if that matters.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 LC
    Tell us a little about yourself: I have been playing for over a year, I am good, but feel like I need some more experiance to compete with the other top players, and I do tend to make some dumb mistakes. I am active on the forums but I tend to always be overshadowed by the other players.

    What tier do you want to learn?: ADV OU. I have been trying to learn for a while, because I want to know all the tour tiers, but not many people have free time or are willing to teach. I also am beyond terrible at it... :(
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm Laurel, I've played pokemon since 2007. I live in US East, my mother is Belgian, my father is Russian etc etc. I like to play tennis, and I like watching sports. My favorite teams are any teams from New England, and the Houston Astros... because I never have high expectations with them.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm Thursday, an eighteen-year-old heading to college in late September. I've played competitively for about six years, but I don't know if I've ever been "good" -- granted, I'm prone to making stupid mistakes in battle, but I think I'm a fairly competent player at my best. Nonetheless, I'd really like to improve my teambuilding skills and prediction. In my spare time, I play guitar (poorly), play basketball, and try to learn more about French (I can communicate at an intermediate level in the language). I try to read a lot, too, though school interfered quite a bit with that -- I think the last think I finished was No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai. I'd like to think of myself as a friendly person and I don't lead a busy life, so talk to me and let me know when you want to hold a session! In all likelihood, I'll be able to make it. :^)

    What tier do you want to learn?: DPP OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing competitive Pokemon for about a year now, and I wanted to be able to play in some of the DPP tournaments that I've seen, so I figured it'd be a good time to learn about the metagame, especially since it seems cool. Other things about myself are that I play NU, PU, and am one of the leaders of the Doubles project, I like music (for specifics check my sig) TV shows, reading books, acting, and hanging out with my friends (Also, if you need any other reason to tutor me, it's my birthday today :) )
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Definitely

    Also my tutor was never able to find time to tutor me last round so I never had a session

    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing pokemon since I was 5 or 6, and I have been loyal to the series ever since then. I am always determined to win, which will come in handy. I am pretty quiet and nerdy outside my computer also. :)
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Of course! anything to help!

    Less than 25: I have always tried to get into competitive battling, but I always fall short because my Pokemon's synergy was off, probably because I don't know enough about movesets and how certain items may help. Also, my post count is not less than 25 because I am inactive, but because I try to read through other threads, like rate my team, to get a better understanding of competitive battling before I start suggesting sets that generally are useless (some work though!)
