    Welcome to round 74 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! You can read more about that here.

    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.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I took a break recently from Pokemon due to me getting bored. In addition, I got rather busy with school. Now that I've taken sufficient time away from Pokemon, I'm ready to dive back in. Also, now that school is over, I'll have a lot more time to dedicate to Pokemon and a tutor. Other than that, I love to fish, cook, and hang out with friends whenever I can. I also hope to become friends with whatever tutor I receive. I am a dedicated Pokemon player that loves to experiment with new pokemon outside of OU. It's fairly normal for me to team build and come up with many versions of a team. However, many of my teams lack the synergy I'd like, so that's why I want to sign up for tutoring. Thanks!

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing competitive pokemon for about a year and a half now, I've been able to pick up on essentially every tier but OU, I use both PO, and PS although when I PS it is much preferred to use a smaller server such as Ori, or Amythest because my cpu is slow. I tend to avoid stall teams since I have ADD, I like using creative sets to stallbreak such as golurk. I'm online essentially all day, my other main interests are football (hence my name), and 80s rock music, and military/war subjects.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: EST. With school nearly ending and finals coming up, I might be a bit hard-pressed for time outside of an hour or so a day, but after June 6, I'll have an extremely flexible schedule. I also have a strange sleeping pattern and stay up pretty late anyway, so getting a tutor in a different timezone would be no biggie.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 UU (If that's unavailable, I wouldn't mind doing RU.)
    Tell us a little about yourself: Pokemon was practically my life when I was younger, but I stopped playing after 4th gen, which, looking back, I wish I hadn't done. Between that time and now, I've become a sub-par guitar player, an avid reader, an amateur writer, and a complete dork. I recently discovered competitive Pokemon, and thought it would be a neat thing to do, so yeah... here I am. I'm pretty easy to get along with and am eager to learn, so I don't think I'd be too difficult of a tutee to take on.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Of course.
    Why I should be tutored despite having less than 25 posts: My lack of posting is mainly due to the fact that I don't have much to contribute in the first place. I've been lurking for a long time, if that counts for anything, and really only made an account so I can sign up for Battle 101. I'm really hoping that, by being tutored, I'll be able to make some friends here and become a part of the community.

    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?: Yes !

    I was skipped in the last Round because I did not know my tutor was an inactive one. I deserve to be tutored with less than 25 posts because I am more of a lurker on here and I learn really fast. I am hoping that with this I will be able to post more on smogon and be a great contributor to the NU community.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU, DPP OU, ADV OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm 14 years old and I live in the UK. I was tutored last round in ADV OU by M Dragon, but he was pretty busy with college and irl stuff, so we didn't get much covered. I still need a lot of help with all the tiers and stuff, because I want to become a good ladder player and tournament player. I need help on teambuilding and learning how to utilize playstyles to their fullest potential. I could also use some help on battling strategy and expanding my knowledge of the metagames.
    Less than 25 posts: I'm still uncomfortable with posting due to the lack of knowledge I possess, and I want to start posting more, but I feel as though getting tutored will be able to help me contribute a lot more.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Yep

    Ojama agreed to tutor me. It says he isn't tutoring atm, but he told me it was a mistake and he will let the tutoring staff know about it.

I tried it and i'm decent but not as good as I want to be. In 5th gen i'm pretty good, though i've gotten bored of it somewhat (except Ubers). Keeping this short cause i'm sick of my computer refreshing instead of submitting, ffs.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I joined Smogon a few years ago, then took a long break from Pokemon, but I've been back and active since about December. I play mostly NU and Doubles (and more recently experimenting with RBY), and I'd really like to improve my skills.

    Timez and stuffz : Eastern standard time, usually good from about 4pm to 10pm. Summer vacation is coming so those hours should be a lot more flexible.
    What tier : I don’t really care all that much, i prefer BW UU and BW OU though.
    About me? Well i’m flattered that you would ask. Um, as of now im an honors society freshmen in a HS in New York, I love to upload videos to youtube when i have the time and i’m also a little bit of an athlete ( play sports casually, used to play on a team ).
    As far as Pokemon related things go, i’ve played since very early BW.
    Sure, i’d be willing to do talk threats on my tutors. Im usually straight up with people :D

    I don’t have 25 posts ( short by 1 ) because i’m more of reader. I deserve to be tutored anyway I don’t like to post very often lol. I deserve to be tutored anyway because I took a break from the game and im super eager to get back into it, I just feel I could use some extra "oomf" getting back into the current meta.

    Another important thing, I tried signing up for this 3 prior times in i think the rounds of late 40s ? ( not entirely sure ) and none of them I got a “tutor” :C.

    I have a skype btw as a means of contact, as well as facebook, youtube and oovoo.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing competitive pokemon for the past 3 Summers but never have gotten the hang of it. I've struggled with teambuilding and that is probably one of my biggest weaknesses. But my prediction skills have grown enormously! I tend to prefer a bulky offensive style but have also attempted semi-stall as well.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: yes, of course

    Why should I be tutored if I have less than 25 posts? I've been lurking through forums for the past 2 years and I also have made this new account I'm using atm. I have a past account that has roughly 50-60 posts on it if you would like to show you the profile. I learn extremely quickly. And if I do say so myself my prediction skills are very impressive.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I have only recently start playing competitive pokemon, and i really really like the tactics and depth behind it. I wish there is someone teach me and i have a lot to learn and im quite a fast learner. Im a Uni student in UK who just finish my final project for archtecture so im will be free coming up. I really enjoy playing pokemon and league of legends in spare time!
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Yes

    Lack of 25post: I literally sign up smogon for this thread so i can start my 'pokemon career' with experts teaching me. I feel like i dont have enough knowledge or skills to contribute to the community yet hence i didnt post anything. However, i have read a lot a lot of articles and rmts and analysis and to learn as fast as possible. Im dedicated to this and to improve my skills as much as possible.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: gmt -5 I'll be available any time of day. Whatever is convenient for my tutor is fine with me.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU or Adv OU (preferably BW2)
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing pokemon competitively since 4th gen. I took a break from battling shortly before the release of BW2 and have recently returned. Music, sports, xbox, all that good stuff
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:Yes

    BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY YOU SHOULD BE TUTORED IF YOU HAVE FEWER THAN 25 POSTS. The majority, if not all, of my posts have been for tournaments. My activity in these tournaments should prove that I won't disappear and will be able to meet with my tutor consistently. Receiving a tutor will open doors and lead to an increase of my activity within the smogon community.

    I was skipped in the previous round (73)

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: Eastern (GMT -5:00). These days, I'm usually available 1:00 PM to 4:00 AM.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 Ubers
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been a member for a while, and I've been lurking for longer still. That said, I don't feel knowledgeable enough to become a really frequent poster (though I have made meaningful posts before), and I'm very socially awkward, which makes contributing even harder for me. The reason I'm signing up for this is so I can spend less time staring at the Teambuilder screen and more time battling (which, in turn, should lead to increased participation from me).
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Why not?
    Why less than 25 posts?: This is my 25th post, but I might as well put this here anyway. As previously mentioned, I've lurked enough to have at least a basic grasp of the metagame, and I've done quite a bit of battling on Pokemon Showdown (though I've yet to get really into it).

    I was skipped Round 69 (if that means anything - I applied for BW2 OU as opposed to Ubers then).
