    ***I'm looking to add one or two more tutors this round. If you are interested, send me a PM with your tutor profile. Only well known members of the community will be considered.

    Ok, Round One was a great success and we are ready to begin Round Two of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 2 weeks (4/30-5/14)! 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!

    *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.

    A little about myself: I'm on regularly, and still I can't seem to predict when I'm not confident that the team is very good... But I feel I am able to predict very well when I feel pressured I need to predict like a madman to even KO 1 poke, and if the team's received some good compliments... Also can only be on weekends and Friday afternoons/evenings for 1-2 hours due to school when June comes.
    Generation(s) I want to learn: RS OU primarily, then RBY OU.

    Regular Online Hours: On weekdays, I am usually on Pokerealm after 4 PM. I am usually around on weekends, I usually shouldn't be hard to find. I do come to Smogon occasionally.
    Experience Level: meh
    A little about myself: I got NB back in September. Back then I never even knew what I was doing there, but now I get the aspect of NB. I'm always trying to look for the right things to use. Oh, one more thing-you don't want to mess with me on servers because I get really annoyed a lot. I haven't been doing too well with ubers anymore, but that doesn't mean I need too much help with it.
    Generations I want to learn: RS Standard OU. I fucking suck at that. I COULD use a tiny bit more help with ubers for the Pokerealm Bash though. I need much more help with RS OU though...

    O, and don't give me zfs again this time because he said there are better RS OU tutors.

    Regular Online Hours(in EDT!!!!!):This weekend, I should be free. Normally, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 5pm-11pm. Normally, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5pm-6pm and 9:30pm-11pm. I will tell my tutor if I am available on the weekends.
    Experience Level*: Well, I am not really sure. If I were willing to train some standard and Uber pokemon, I think I might be a worthy opponent to some people. I never got the chance to use them, so I do not know how good I am at prediction, team-building, etc. I know what EVs, IVs, and natures are, and other basic stuff like that. Unfortunately, my previous tutor and I really had not gotten to practice at all, so I hope this time will be different. I like playing basketball, and I turn 13 on September 12th. I would also like to learn how to make my own EV Spreads.
    Generation(s) I want to learn:RS OU, RS UU, RS Standard, and RS Uber. Maybe RS Borderline(just to have background knowledge about it) and anything in GSC.
