    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself:Well, I am a freshman high schooler who has never been able to grasp how to play OU(WEATHER). It's that I really don't know how to deal with the pokemon in OU, and it changes a lot.

    Less than 25 posts:I have not been really part of the Smogon community because I learned about PO on their website.After the PO academy, I have learned that Smogon's is probably better.I want to contribute to Smogon by actually knowing how to play the main tier OU.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT-7 or west coast time. My availability is around 5-11pm on weekdays and varies on weekends but should be at least from 6pm-1am
    What tier do you want to learn?: OU/Uber
    Tell us a little about yourself: After playing in ubers for a bit and peaking at #1 before the reset it has officially made me love the tier so i would like to improve my knowledge in ubers. As for OU I'd like to learn how to play properly since the massive amount of viable mons in ou makes it overwhelming and from my losses in the suspect ladder it shows that I need some practice. I'm also a college student, been playing pokemon since r/b/y days, hate pets, tend to procrastinate alot for some reason but somehow still get the job done.

    I just realized I put in the reason why I should be tutored in the tell me about myself section. Whoops. I mainly use PS.

    Been skipped in round 66. Thank you

    Tell us a little about yourself: I have been trying to improve in competitive battling with limited success. What success I did have was from Smogon's strategy guides, so I trust that that being tutored here is the best way to improve.

    Less Than 25 Posts: I have not realized there was a forum here until this month, but I have did much research on battling and I take instruction very well, so I will learn this quickly, this is why I should be tutored.

    Tell us a little about yourself:I'm a fairly off-and-on active battler, and I really like the game. I was pretty active in D/P/P but I didn't play much in B/W. Looking to get back into it.

    Less than 25 posts: I've been really active on other forums (such as a game called toribash, my name is Zoro there), but I never really wanted to be active on the PO forums. I'll step it up here.

    Harsha accepted to tutor me.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I am a 17 year old guy who has loved pokemon for most of his life. I feel I know a little bit about competitive battling but I am not great at it. I would love to be tutored in order to become a better battler and member of the smogon community.

    Less than 25 posts: I felt that I don't have enough knowledge on subjects on the forums and could not make any thoughtful remarks. I feel that I deserve tutoring as much as the next guy, (I don't deserve tutoring any more than the other people applying) despite my low post count, because I would become a much more active member in the community by increasing my knowledge in competitive battling.

    I don't know if this matters because I didn't apply in the last round but I did not recieve a tutor any of the three times I did apply: 57, 58, and 62

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a 15-year-old from Illinois, I hate corn, and I love playing video games other than Pokemon. Most video games I play are Assassin's Creed, CoD, etc, but most of the time I'm on here or on #grammar on IRC. I normally try and apply, but I've been very busy this year and I've finally found some free time now that I've managed my time a bit more and I'm hoping to get a tutor this round.

    Also, I hate the Yankees with a passion.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm an average 19 years old guy who likes Pokemon and anime. I'm also a big Vocaloid fan. I lurked here for a long time, but I made the big step in the game only some months ago. After a rough beginning, I started doing something decent, but I still feel I have much to learn to become good. That's why I would like to be tutored. Disgusted by OU's chaoticness, I found a place in lower tiers, and I would like to get tutored at least in one of these.

    Got skipped in Round 66.

    Tell us a little about yourself: Keen basketball player, long time forum lurker-come-member. I like doing art and have submitted a few pieces for tournaments, I live in England and am a massive Arsenal fan. I play football and basketball for the school and generally like sports. Studying Bio/Chem/Maths/Spanish at school and generally love talking to people, reading, writing - quite a creative person all in all. Have a tendency to disappear during exam periods though... I want to be tutored because although I had a decent grasp of Gen4 I found the transition to Gen5 very difficult and i would appreciate if somebody could help bring me up to speed.

    Was assigned the wrong tutor last round and have been guaranteed a spot by Nachos in this one.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I live in Holland and my deepest passion is music. At the moment I'm studying to become a singer at a conservatory in Holland. Besides that, I've played Pokemon games since I was very little. I still have my Gameboy Color somewhere lying around here and last summer I bought myself a Nintendo 3ds. Pokemon has always been in my life and I love it, but I've never done competitive battling before and I would like to learn it.

    Why under 25 posts: The main reason I subscribed to this forum was for the battling 101. I wanted to post more on the forum, but I was afraid I would come across as a noob so I didn't :P That's why this is my first post here EVER.

    I've attempted to get into the competitive pokemon scene multiple times over the past year and every time I do I can never quite put a strong team together and usually end quitting.

    Less Than 25 Posts: I really want to be a part of this community but I didn't want to the kind of person who voices their uninformed opinion on a forum. Being tutored will hopefully be my first step into becoming more involved in the community.

    Like most of the ’92 kids I fell in love with Pokemon since I got my Blue Version…and a few years later here I am playing Pokemon again and this time is Pokemon White. I’m from Portugal, so English is not my first language but I will try my best to make it understandable.

    I’ve been battling for like 1 month ‘till my 3Ds died, aha. Right now (until it gets fixed) I’m playing Pokemon Online and I’m trying to learn by myself but it is really hard to find new players like me…most of them play for a long time or had someone to teach them which makes them really hard to defeat. I’ve been doing my own research and I know a few basic things so I guess it won’t be that hard to teach me plus I’m really determined to become a better player :)
