    Regular Online Hours (Eastern only!): Weekdays in between classes mostly, between roughly 1pm-11pm EST
    Experience level: I know RSE, so I've been using mostly RSEish teams but I have no clue what's going on with most of the new pokemon
    A little about myself: I can't seem to incorporate any of the "new" pokemon very well into my teams, want to work on that.

    Age: 15
    Time zone: GMT +1 (the Netherlands)
    Regular Online Hours: between 16:00 and 21:00 GT +1 from monday till friday, and between 13:00 and 20:00 in the weekend, I can be online (except if I have something else to do, of course).
    Experience level*: I've played netbattle, and still play shoddybattle. I know all the stuff about EVs, IVs and all those other stats, so you don't need to learn me that. I can make a pretty decent team, but my synergy isn't really flawless.
    A little about myself: I'm a big nintendo fan, excpecially metriod and golden sun. I have msn, which can make tutoring a lot easier. I signed up here because I want to improve my prediction and the synergy in my teams.

    Regular Online Hours: Usually from 12:00 to 15:00 (which is 18:00-21:00 in GMT +1) but often even more. Weekends: it depends but I usually have time.
    Experience level*: Novice
    A little about myself: I did a lot of reading (movesets/strategies/how-to-build-teams) and I practiced some on shoddy, but I don't seem to be able to put together a really efective team, nor can I use it to it's fullest. This is mainly because of my lack of knowledge and experience. I didn't know where to start learning not just parts of pokemon but 'seeing competitive pokemon as a whole.' And this is why I seek help. Although sometimes I'm a bit lazy, I learn quick and I'm a good listener.

    Time zone: GMT -7 (Eastern Time Zone)
    Regular Online Hours (Eastern only!):
    Weekdays from 4 PM - 8 PM.
    Weekends from 1 PM - 6 PM
    Experience level*: Ive been playing DP for about 6 months or so, with few battles on Shoddy. I use to Netbattle a while back, but mostly play Wifi. Am willing to play Shoddy as well. I would say as a battler, Im probably a B-/B
    A little about myself: I've been playing DP for quite a while, but simply want to perfect my skills as a battler. I have a good grip on prediction, but my teams usually have blatant weaknesses that I cannot overcome. Other than that, I'm fairly easy going, play sports, and am about to enter college.

    Time zone: EST
    Regular Online Hours (Eastern only!): 3:30-4:00 PM on weekdays, fluctuating times for everything else.
    Experience level: Amateur
    A little about myself: I've been playing on the D/P scene since July now. I've been having troubles in how to handle a team, mostly in prediction. I'd also be extremely happy if I were paired with IggyBot, he's a friend of mine, to say. I'm still having a trouble getting over the 1400 hump of Shoddy.

    Onine hours:I play at random though you can expect to see me around 4-5 central time.
    Experience:Moderate
    About me: Despite my name, I am not a Satan worshipper. I've played for a while on shoddy, and I've also played against many of the tutors here (With me losing most of the time). I have the most difficulty playing defensively, since I've not had much experience with defensive battles.

    Regular Online Hours (Eastern only!):
    5-11 pm weekdays and 12pm-12am weekends (thats in +9 30 time)
    Experience level*:
    Very much a beginner, although I did well in the Australian tour, I do not know much about team building or advanced strategy at all.
    A little about myself: I live in South Australia and to tell you the truth I haven't played much Pokemon at all lately but only because i was never great at competitive battling. This would give me the opportunity to learn a lot and become competent. If i don't get in this round i will be happy to wait till the next one.
