    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Ten of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ending on October 22th. 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.

    Experience level*: Competitivly, I don't have an experience level, played the games against the AI, NEVER against a human. Thus I have only read about "competitive sets / teams" I did was most people did, took pokemon that they liked for different types, and just played.
    A little about myself: A university student that is just looking for somthing fun to play that doesn't require you to be on 6 hours a day to play (COUGH FFXI COUGH). Also looking forward to playing the game on the DS, so I am looking to take what I learn in ADV with me to the DS.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Adv OU (including Team-Building if possible) and if time permits mabey a LITTLE UU

    I have an ok ratio on NB but it's mostly because challenges that actually get accepted are by noobs.

    A little about myself: I decided to download NB and promptly got my ass handed to me 9 times out of 10 when I battled, often because I had nothing to counter a specific pokémon and/or tactic. Otherwise I've been playing the ADV generation since ~2004 on and off, and often I've used competitive movesets I've found here and elsewhere on my in-game teams.

    Time zone: GMT+12 (EDT+16 i think) NZ ftw
    Regular Online Hours (in EDT!!!!): Most Fridays and Saturdays at around 8 to around sometimes past midnight.
    Also Wednesdays any time from 8PM-11PM should be alright. Most of these times are stuffed up for people living in EDT
    time because I live in New Zealand with a messed up time zone.
    Experience level*: I've been on NB for almost a year and I've been playing
    pokemon for years. I won an
    in-game Uber tournament last year in New Zealand with a lot of luck and not much skill. I'm kinda average at pokemon.
    A little about myself: I like pokemon and lots of video games like Counter Strike and Warcraft.
    I also play a bit of guitar.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: Uber, since the in-game tourney is coming around again. I feel that I'm
    good at it (I have a record of 52 wins:8 losses on my NB uber team, including some losses in rated CC) but some
    people have absolutely demolished me. So I really wanna learn from someone with loads of experience.
