    Tell us a little about yourself: I am I junior in High School and have been playing Pokemon since I was 8 when my friends got me into it. I started getting into competitive battling when I was playing HGSS and Googled what would be a good moveset for my Primeape (My favorite Pokemon at the time, hence my original username, EnragedBeast) and found this site, in which the articles enticed me into getting into the strategy of this game.

    I was interested in the Little Cup metagame because out of a whim of using cutemons such as Stunky and Chinchou(Favorite Pokemon ATM) in a competitive standpoint and been having a lot of fun doing so. As a competitive person I want to go above my current limits and exceed as a successful player in every tier possible while having as much fun as possible. RayJay told me to just request for him, so I'll go ahead and formally do so.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT +12 I can be on some days during the week around 6PM ish otherwise the weekend is ideal or friday nights
    What tier do you want to learn?: A bit of everything would be nice ive found all tiers interesting and fun
    Tell us a little about yourself: I've only just started playing pokemon recently or so and am enjoying the experience so far, competitive pokemon has appealed to me because at heart I'm too lazy to spend hours to level one pokemon to level 100 which is why the battle sim has really appealed to me. I also play League of Legends chess and am making my way through school.
    Why I have less than 25 posts: Along with lazy I'm also a bit shy when it comes to new things. I have been lurking the forums and getting new ideas for teams in RMT but other than that my knowledge is limited and I hope to change that with this program

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW OU /DPP OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a French girl in high school, started to play Pokémon competitively about 1 year ago. I enjoy listening to music, playing the piano, swimming, hanging out with my friends etc..
    Less than 25 posts explanation: I registered in January 2012 and have been lurking the most of time. I’m not that bad in BW OU but I’d like to be tutored to improve my battling and team building skills (especially the latter). I haven’t played DPP for a while so I’m not good at all in this tier and I would like to change that. I am very motivated!

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm an average teenager who plays a couple sports and some instruments. I have played piano (which I am the best at) for about eight years, I've played violin for 4 years, I have played tennis for 4 years, and I've played basketball for a year or so (I'm so much better at basketball than tennis...). I also have a decent amount of homework because I am in a lot of advanced classes, so I may not be available until later at night for most weekdays, but on weekends, I'm usually free after about Noon or so.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW OU/BW UU/BW Ubers
    Tell us a little about yourself: I am 14 years old; I enjoy watching sports, and I also play basketball in my spare time. My favorite genre of videogames is RPG, and my favorite series would probably have to be Final Fantasy.
    Why I should be tutored: I know I am new here, but I am consistently on almost every single day besides when I am not home or have loads of homework (which will all be done after Wednesday). I am pretty new to Pokemon, so I won't usually post much in the Pokemon sections yet, but once I become comfortable with my battling skills, I'm sure I will begin to post more often here.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a really competitive player and i always aim to win. I guess i'm alright at this game, but I really struggle with team building because in my opinion, the OU meta game is crazy but that's my favorite tier so I wish to get a tutor that can teach me how to build good teams.IFM said that he agreed to tutor me 2 rounds ago, but I'm not sure if he remembers or not.

    Tell us a little about yourself:

    Hi I am Ouro. I live on the east coast (the best coast). I am a student studying Engineering Design and other bs.

    I love Pokemon! Starmie, Tyranitar, Gyarados, Garchomp, Latias, Croagunk!

    I was tutored like four years ago or something by the great Gouki and pwnd lots of noobs on Shoddy Battle. I recently quit MMOs and got back into competitive battling. I feel like a tutor would help me better familiarize myself with the metagame and maybe learn some new strategies.

    K Thx <3

I specalize in Monotype yet i still tend to struggle in OU so i signed up for this to improve my skills. Before the ladder reset I was #1 in monotype. I prefer to work with offensive teams. My strengths are: Predictions, and Surprising sets. My weaknesses are Stalling and teambuilding.

    I missed round 61 but i signed up in round 59&60 and got a tutor in neither

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a Economy student in university, I have a lot of free time. I started in late DP, then focused on BW. In ADV I'm pretty much a newcomer, while in DP I'd need mainly to get in touch with the actual metagame, and maybe a little about teambuilding. I'm a chill person and I have a lot of patience ~

    Requesting HellPowna as a DP tutor, I don't mind who tutors me in ADV

    Tier: BW OU
    About me: I'm a long time Smogon forumer who's been involved off-and-on in the metagame since the heyday of Platinum. I've been decent at times, but I've never really come close to breaking into the top echelon. I played the new metagame early in its lifespan (before stateside release of the games) and early this year, but I've never had the patience to hang on and improve, and my strategies have generally been lacking. I'd like to get some advice and help in getting a grasp on the metagame and really taking my level of play higher.

    Passed over for several different rounds a long time ago

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: EST. Tues/Fridays I'm free all day.
    What tier do you want to learn?: BW UU, DDP OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I know the basics of battling, such as predicting and others, but I want to learn about different tiers. BW UU is something I've been interested in but I haven't really figured out most of the threats or walls to watch out for. Same goes for DDP OU, I want to play older tiers that I used to play but I forgot almost everything about 4th gen.

    I was skipped the past two rounds.

    I'm a noobie explanation: I only really make posts if I feel I can be helpful, which I don't think I can with my current lack of knowledge. I'd probably be much more comfortable posting once I learned more.

    Applied in round 60 and missed out ;<

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW UU or BW RU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I like to play sports, read and play video games (mostly pokemon) here in england. Im taking my GCSE's soon as well. I dont know much about the U/RU metagame and was hoping to get some teambuilding tips and prediction help from this. I want to enter the Smogon Grand Slam and to stand a chance I need to have a solid team. This is the only time Ill be able to get tutoring before it because Im away during the next sign ups. It would be great if I could have a chance in the tournament.
    <25 posts: I have been looking around for sometime now but I havent had anything to offer because I dont know that much and dont want to post without having a good understanding of the metagames. I have made an RMT though. It would be great if I could contribute more to the community after this opportunity and that would surely raise my post count.
