    Experience level: I've played a little, losing most. I guess I'm a beginner.
    A little about myself: I've played every generation of pokemon, but i really got into DP. My teams don't seem like they have many weaknesses at first, but then i get 6-0'ed by (insert common threat that I should have a counter for). I also tend to make the same type of team every single time.

    Experience level*:A little about myself: Been playing on shoddy for a few monthes now, and i've developed somewhat decent prediction skills. I'm bad at building teams, and would like to learn many things about building teams for OU and UU. i like using uncommon pokes. I hope that with help i will be able to become a competant battler, and team builder. As for myself, I love playing super smash bros and tennis, and I don't like homework (but then, who does).

    Age: I'd rather not say. Younger than 16, but not a frickin 10 year old.
    Time zone: UTC-8 (That's what Wikipedia says)
    Regular Online Hours (Eastern only!): Weekends, some nights on weekdays, less so on weekdays. I may have to leave at unexpected times.
    Experience level*:A little about myself: I've played Pokemon since Yellow, but never took it seriously until the peak of Advance, when I found out about Netbattle. That was about 2006. Then from there, I discovered Smogon, and lurked until I summed up the courage to join. I have little in-game skill, as I have not the patience, or time, to breed and train. So I'm restricted to Shoddy and Netbattle.

    Regular Online Hours: For Me, basically all day weekends, but about 5:00-6:00 week days.
    Experiance Level: I don't know. I always seem to think I'm doing stuff right, but I'll usually loose regardless. Everything just seems good on paper to me, and I never make the right moves.

    A little about myself: I really want to learn to battle better, because Pokemon has been a part of my life since I was like 6 years old. I want to play my favorite game to the best of its ability to be played.

    Regular Online Hours (Eastern, of course): 4PM-9PM Weekdays, on and off all night. . . Random hours weekends, sometimes not at all.
    Experience Level: Novice, just started in September.
    A little about myself: I'm relatively new to the competitive Pokemon community, just joined in September. I like to think I've gotten a lot better since then, but I'm still pretty terrible. The only experience I have is from the Shoddy Ladder, and only in OU. My prediction is pretty decent, but I need serious help with my team building skills and basic battling know how (e.g. I can predict what move the enemy will use, but not always what the best swicthin is). Anyway, I'm looking for a tutor to increase how good I am at the game, and look forward to getting one.

    Experience level*:A little about myself: I first started out in Advanced, but my teams were very standard and I lost a lot so I lost interest. I have become interested again with Pokemon in DP. My prediction skills are alright. My team building skills need some serious work though. Often times I don't think my moves through which can lead me into trouble.

    Experience level*:A little about myself: I guess I have about a average knowledge of playing. I have beaten a fair number on NetBattle and Shoddy. Prediction skills are not so great and team building isn't good. I usually take parts of teams and put them together myself.

    If at any point during the round you are having difficulty meeting your partner, please contact me or Max and we will do our best to work out something that will suit everyone involved.... additionally, be on the lookout for the survey I will be sending out to all apprentices to evaluate the tutors. Keep track of how many times you all meet, etc. etc!

    Have a great round everyone!
