    Under 25 Posts: I'm still very new to the mechanics of competitive battling, plus some of the "slang" used in the community still confuses me a little.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT 0, available pretty much anytime of the day unless I'm out, which I'll make damn sure to specify.
    What tier do you want to learn?: Any tier, though at one point I did practice BW2 UU
    Tell us a little about yourself: Well I'm essentially your average 6th form student, been a Pokemon fan for life and have lurked the forums for a good 5-6 years since the days of late Advance trying to figure out the mechanisms of competitive Pokemon and how it really works in practice, and although I've done a lot of research on the topic, I've never 100% got it myself and would absolutely love the opportunity to learn how to properly play the game from the professionals. In addition to that, I'd also like to see how to improve my understanding of concepts such as prediciton, risk-reward and bluffing, which are things I've never fully understood and, once mastered, could be implemented to good effect not merely in Pokemon, but in other irl games as well. Outside of Pokemon, I'm also a huge fan of most Nintendo series, Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot, and enjoy watching Father Ted and The Muppets whenever I can. Bit of a social anomaly, but ehh, what can you do?
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Absolutely.
    I was skipped over last round on that note.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I really don't do much but I would love to be taught competitive battling and know how to build my teams right without failing to notice large weaknesses in my teams and how to get it all together. On another note I have just recently finished High School.

    Just wanted to thank everyone for the great turnout. As always, some of the time zones were hard to matchup, but we did the best that we could. If you are having issues meeting with your tutee, mention that in your tutee thread, and we'll give you priority next round.

    You are required to make a tutee talk thread within one week, no matter if any lessons have taken place or not. You will be subbed out for another applicant if no thread is made.
