    Tiers That I'd Like to Learn: Any and all BW2 tiers recognized by Smogon.
    A Little About Me: I am a sophomore in a US high school. I started playing competitively myself last summer, but I watched countless battles beforehand. I have gained a certain level of proficiency in most tiers and am able to make a competitive team often enough. What I really want, however, is to make a team that is nearly perfect. I know that this'll be challenging, but I truly believe that it is possible.
    Will I be Willing to do Tutee Talks on my Tutor: Yes (hopefully in a timely manner; I'll try my best with that)

    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.

    The battling 101 staff has made posts in each tutee's thread regarding any further questions we have. Please look at your thread to see if we asked you any additional questions.

    Thanks!
