Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I competed in two regionals many years ago, and one LCQ in Worlds 2013 where I made it to Round 3. I don't have any substantial accomplishments other than getting second place at one Premier Challenge long ago (which would be irrelevant now). I'm mainly looking to learn and improve teambuilding, as I think I'm very deficient in that regard. But other education will help as well, so long as my name isn't taken yet.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: Skype and Discord.
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: Yes, I'm aware of how it works.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started about a year ago on Showdown and I enjoyed every bit of it. I played the OU ladder on ORAS and got 1407 going 41-3 and couldn't get any higher than unfortunately because of unnecessary plays. I'm mainly looking to improve my battling skills and build on that experience I can get from here.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I stumbled onto BSS when i rediscovered Smogon a couple of years ago. I liked the friendly nature of that room and the WiFi section, which both being cart based shared a lot of characteristics. I did an RMT last year and ran the CCaT but have lost a bit of enthusiasm this gen which I've put down to a lack of real knowledge and i want to get it back.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve been playing competitively on showdown since the summer of 2014. Since joining I’ve laddered, and ask for advised. I’ve always found myself to be weak of team building. The RMT room and RMT forum sections have always been a help. I finally at the end of the ORAS OU metagame I was able to break 1600 which I’m super happy about. Over my yeah and a half at Smogon I’ve played mainly singled formats like ubers, Anything goes (which my favourite tier by far), LC, Ru, UU(2nd fav tier) and some Monotype . With the release of SuMo on showdown, I instantly dove right into Anything goes,ubers and Ou. I didnt playuch BSS cause I had a hard time choosing the right 3 mons. Hopefully with a tutors help I can improve teambuilding , battling, decidng the best 3 nons to use and be able to enjoy the tier.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitive when Sun and Moon got released, i mostly played Ubers,Anything Goes and VGC'17, but i also competed in the Battle Of Alola, Alola Friendly and kanto X Alola Regional Rumble but i did pretty bad in them so it would be very cool if someone can tutor me the ins and outs of BSS! I also participated in the LC Seasonal and DOU Seasonal, and I learned from that experience a lot!
I reached 1300 at the Anything Goes ladder (I know its low) and i readed a lot of teambuilding guides and guides about VGC and BSS to learn a lot!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing on and off competitively since ADV. I made a full-time return at the beginning of XY and have been around since. I'm currently the LC Tier Leader and as such play a lot of that, but I've been looking to expand and play some other metagames. BSS caught my eye recently, and after playing some matches of it I've been having a ton of fun. I also feel like I've been in a rut lately and perhaps BSS can help shake that and give me a different perspective on Pokemon.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing battle spot last year, participating in some on cart competitions such as Flash Clash and Johto Classic. I didn't really get into battle spot until Sun and Moon were released, and since then I've gained a fair bit of knowledge about team building and the metagame. I'm still having some difficulties and I feel as if I've learned as much as I can by myself and need help to get even better.

I hope to learn the current game as a lot has changed now since there are new games that have come out such as pokemon sun and moon.
Thank you ^_^

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): In S/M, my main tier has been PS!'s 1v1, as I have logged over 8,000 games in that meta. I am decent enough, I suppose. I don't know what others think of me asks 1v1 room mod [17:52] @BaleBlaze+:you're above average, theheheh, but correct me if i'm wrong there is only one main team i've seen you use while getting to late 1500,early 1600 at peak(might be wrong here)
I'm trying to diversify my metas so that I can play DS pokeymans better

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started competitive battling on GSbot on IRC in 2002. I was never better than average, despite hours of study and practice. I beta tested RSbot, and studied the game 3 months before RS came out, and I was still not better than average. I took an extended break from Pokemon due to RL and started trying to play again in gen 6. I want to try and think outside the box instead of using all the standard stuff, and I want to get over my severe ladder anxiety and fear of losing. I also want to learn teambuilding and team picking at the team preview screen.

I have largely confined myself to the PGL Online Competitions in the past; now I want to see what the main event is like. I'm passingly familiar with the baseline of BSS, I just need to adjust to the meta. I also need to control my gimmick reflex.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started off with light ou play in early OR/AS, to limited success because I knew next to nothing about the games. I started playing monotype with a friend after discovering it, and kept going to that for the better part of a year, probably longer. I've dabbled in tiers such as ubers and uu, but never hit a point I really felt was good. Battle spot has my interest and now I wanna give it a shot, but my main issues seem to be that I'm not comfortable building and my actual play is subpar.
