    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 NU, RU or UU. UU preferred.
    Tell us a little about yourself: I played a little DP a few years back, before becoming a bit unhinged from the metagame. Now I'm just someone looking to plant his feet somewhere.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutor?: Naturally.
    Why you have less than 25 posts: I joined primarily to apply to this program. I didn't think I had a lot to say until I found my bearings, something I think this program will help me with. Also social group posts don't seem to count towards your post total.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a guy from the netherlands. I like listening music/watching anime/playing flash games etc etc. I think most of you know me since i've been in the community for a while now, and think i'm a good lc player (which i'm not, lol). Because of an overdose of free time i decided i wanted to learn bw2 ou. I've done BW OU in the past, so i do have a bit of pre-knowledge or something.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: yea

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT+8 5pm - 7pm weekdays, 1pm - 9pm weekends.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: Since I started competitive battling in late 2011 I have never been very good at what seems to be everyone's favorite tier, OU, and have studiously avoided laddering in OU. However, I do enjoy dabbling in most of the tiers and thus feel compelled to take up OU. Hence my application which you are reading now.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Probably, depends on whether I have time (which I should...)

    Skipped over in Rounds 67 and 68, and missed Round 69.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm from Sweden ( but I live in Belgium because my mom works there) I've played pokemon since 3rd gen and and last year I discovered EVs. After that I discovered Smogon and Pokemon Showdown.
    I've been playing a lot lately but i've had trouble with making good teams.I hope that my teambuilding skills will improve with the help of a skilled player.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?: Most likely
    Less than 25 posts: I mostly just look around trying to pick up some tips. I never have anything good to say.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT. Usually around some time between 7pm and 9pm but times vary.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 RU
    Tell us a little about yourself: Where do I start? I'm quite a few things. RU battler, Japanophile, aikidoka, and of course the leader of the Smogon democratic movement of late 2012. But don't worry, I won't start going political all the time on B101! As far as Pokemon goes, I might need a "test" on the basics of RU, but I've been playing the tier since its conception so I'm pretty advanced, just not formally advanced.
    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:Possibly, if I have the time... ka mo shirenai.

    I was skipped last round.

    P.S. For those of you who thought that I had a penchant for Poké-bestiality due to my last application, I don't, OK? I meant to say I had a douraku about Entei, meaning obsession/strong interest.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm from Rio de Janeiro and play since ADV. My favorite tiers are Monotype and NU, and I'm quite good at both; and decent in RU. I like to use innovative (read: gimmicky) sets/tactics that often involve mind games and element of surprise. I tried both LC and Ubers once but I could never succeed nor creating a successful team on those. I like Yugioh, history and languages. I major in history and aspire to be a translator, voice actor and etimologist.

Thats why even though I've been in Smogon for years I had never made an account: I didnt feel like I could aport anything. Thats why I want to learn from the best players.

    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.
