    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: EST from 4:00PM-8:00PM
    What tier do you want to learn?: OU please
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a senior in high school, and I like playing pokemon, yu-gi-oh, and chess; I like strategic games, it's a passion of mine. This is actually my first post, a friend of mine told me about smogon about three days ago and ask me to do tutoring with him: his username is Regret. Before now, I've only been using Serebii.net to get the stats of pokemon and now that I'm here, I see that smogon is faster at getting stats to me. Before now, I've been consructing my own teams and playing OU competitively, but I want to learn how to distinguish a good team from an insufficient one, like knowing what a good move in chess would be and what a bad one would be.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: I do not know what this is, but sure I'm willing to do tutee talk threads, that is if I get a tutor.

    Pokemon Showdown Name: smashbrospro33 Tailwind.avi (usually this one, though I use the 1st when someone asks me to use it)
    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: 3-9 PM M-F and 11AM-11PM weekends
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 Ubers/NU, DPP OU, ADV OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing pokemon Competitively before I joined smogon (about a year and a half) and started with OU, and eventually went to what is now my favorite tier, UU. Generally i'm pretty good, though I don't ladder much on 1 alt at a time. NU seems to be my weak point, and i've tried DPP OU, and was decent, though not many people play it, same goes for ADV OU, though I want to get better at all 3. Also, I like to use odd strategies, some are gimmicky, like my "Tailwind + Kyurem-B destroys everything" team that has become something people not only know, but hate to see most of the time.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 UU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I never thought of playing competitive pokemon, but for some reason i had the urge to check it out in youtube, after seeing some matches I completely fell in love with it, by how strategic it was, BUT my internet connection didnt allow my ds to connect to the internet. It was then when i discovered the magic that was pokemon showdown, I been playing but i found out that I have really big problems building teams and then i discovered this, so here i am :)
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:Sure, keeping a journal would also help me with my tutee.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing pokemon for years, recently got interested into this meta game with the implementation of pokemon White and black. I already know a bit about competitive from playing against a few people irl and online. I still think I have alot to learn regarding team building and understanding the movesets and stat builds that opponents use.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Yes

    I think I should be tutored so I can better learn the ends and outs of the pokemon metagame and better understand when I should and shouldn't do certain things such as switching out, setting up, and attacking.

I've been into competitive Pokemon since June 2012, and I've been playing NU all the long. I'm already good, but I feel like getting a tutor will let me reach my fullest extension.

    What tier do you want to learn?:bw2ou
    Tell us a little about yourself: I normally don't struggle with bw2ou, but I've been doing worse lately. I've found myself using the same defensive cores on all of my balanced-semistall teams and only have one consistent team now. Now that the metagame is becoming so much more offensive, I would like to be able to build a more offensive team instead of using the limited cores found in a defensive one.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:yes
    I was skipped last round.

    Tell us a little about yourself: College freshman, I spend far too much time on IRC as any of you that know me can attest to. I mainly play ubers, but I'm good at any other given tier except for LC, which I can't wrap my head around.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability:EST/GMT-4 available 5-10 weekdays Saturdays are hit or miss and noon-12 Sundays
    What tier do you want to learn?:BW2 RU 1st, BW2 LC 2nd
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm probably a bit different than most users, I'm 18, live in Florida and in my spare time like to work on trucks, fish, hunt, and chill with my friends. I also just recently go accepted into UNF and so I'm looking forward to that at the end of June. The reason I'm signing up for this now even though I've been playing for a couple months is that with Nidoqueen leaving the tier it's literally made all of my teams obsolete and so I need some help on how to reevaluate my team building process. Plus I'd like to gain more knowledge on how to better participate on IRC and the forums more. With LC I've recently become very interested and I'm mainly curious how to team build as I've really just been using RMT teams to get my feet wet.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:I would be more than happy to.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a man who just wants to be great at the things I do, and Pokemon is one of them. I've recently been struggling to adjust to the B/W2 meta, especially after taking a relatively long hiatus. I would greatly appreciate having a tutor, as I feel I need that to achieve my goal of returning to the game, and I’d be willing to make the necessary steps forward. Since you should probably know this, I generally play bulky offense though I am interested in other types of playstyles. Also I love Infernape and Latios, if that matters.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I was a quarterfinalist in the recent Smogon BW2 OU Official Tournament despite not knowing much about BW2 OU. I would have won it all had I known it better, but I'm seriously lacking something that I have no idea what it is. I want to be the best there is, was, and ever will be. So I'm hoping my tutor would help me accomplish that goal.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:Yes, I love to talk.

    Tell us a little about yourself: Been playing since DPP. I've always been a rather average OU battler, and I'm hoping to improve upon that a little. I'd really like to get a good grasp of the OU metagame and how it works, since it's been something I haven't been able to teach myself since I first started.
