    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Six of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ( 07/02-07/23 )! I've decided to make this round a week longer to facilitate a more in-depth learning experience. If you are a NEW PLAYER and wish to get a tutor for this round all you have to do is post your profile in the format below. Tutors will be an excellent resource for you to learn Pokemon team building and battling strategies, as well as someone who can help "initiate" you into the Smogon Community. They are here for you...so take advantage!

    A little about myself:
    Generation(s) I want to learn:

    *You don't have to be good...just willing to learn. So, don't be shy; Sign up now!

    The tutors will view this thread and choose their apprentices based on the generations they want to learn and their regular online hours. Once they have made a choice, they will contact me through a PM and I will keep an updated list of tutors and their apprentices. Tutors will also PM the person they have chosen to teach and set up times to meet. Apprentices are also encouraged to be proactive in searching for their tutor.

    If a tutor doesn't find a match, I will begin assigning the remaining tutors to appropriate apprentices. If you are still looking for a tutor after all tutors have been assigned...you have the option of looking through the tutor roster and PM'ing a suitable person (one who teaches the generation you want to learn and is online during similar hours) to ask them if they will take you on as a second apprentice. It's as simple as that!!

    If at any point during this round you encounter a problem (difficulty getting together with your tutor, etc.), let me know and we will work to resolve the issue.

    A little about myself: Eh...not much you need to know about me.
    Generations I want to learn: Wouldn't hurt to learn some RS OU this time around. I don't know anything about RBY UU or GSC UU, so I could try to get some skill with that as well.

    Experience level*: I started back in '04, but then I had a one and a half year hiatus. Back then Celebi and Jirachi were still banned, so I 'm waay behind. I can predict, but that was then.
    A little about myself: Missed Pokemon due to school dammit
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Team Building/Prediction in ADV OU. I had team building issues back then when I would just put cune/spiker/dusclops together in a team, and now there is Celebi and Jirachi to worry about. So yeah that, and update on the current metagame. That is all.

    A little about myself: I'm a really commited pokemon player, I learn fast, and I'm willing to try anything. I have big trouble beating Snorlax though.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Well, honestly I'd like to start from square one...but I don't want to waste anyone's time so I guess I'd like to learn ADV, but I think my real problem is constructing a team that works well with one another.
