    Netbattle Nickname - The Smore

    Age - 13 - soon 14

    Time Zone - GMT

    Regular Online times - After about 4/5 o'clock till varying times.

    Experience Level - Played Ruby and Emerald extensively. Played Red briefly.
    Complete newcomer to Netbattle. Mainly need to learn about team building, but any other aspects welcomed.

    ALAMY - On the forums SPPF and TCoD. I like Smores. And I spend far to much time on the internet.

    Generations - Advanced Battling, Standard Teams, Ubers if there's time.


    (The reason I am asking for this is that my freind and I (elpasi) both downloaded Netbattle at the same time, and after making our first teams we battled each other. We battled for a total of three times. I thought that I would beat him easily - he was an amateur pokemon player. He beat me every time. By quite a long way.)

    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): Usually afternoon, 5:30-7:30
    Experience level*: Not much, unless you count the game as experience :p
    A little about myself: I jumped when I heard about netbattle (admittedly late from Wikipedia) and signed up. Went to the smogon battle server, got the crap beaten out of me. I revised my team, from what I use in-game to something a tad bit more competitive, it took a little longer to get the crap beaten out of me. >_> I'm trying to learn though.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Just Advanced OU, the basic general start-up stuff. Thanks, peace.

    Edit: I just realized I won't be getting a tutor till next round. I'll re-post then?

    I'd like to apologize to everyone who did not receive a tutor this round. This has by far been the biggest round yet in terms of people looking for tutors and I expect that we will continue to grow! Now, all of you who are still looking for a tutor should post your profile again in the Round 7 thread so that I know you are still interested. Thanks to everyone who made this Round a success and let's do it again!
