Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): smogon lurker, want to get more into laddering + playing more and the tournament community has been aspiring for me. teambuilding has never been a skill of mine either, so i usually ladder with teams posted on forums or some bad stuff I make. never really got very high on ladder based on lack of investment, but I aspire to improve this ability. was tutored in DOU last year but kinda was inactive on my end- i don't attempt to aspire to do that again.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing for some time, but I usually end up leaving mons for some time and then come back. I watch a lot of battles and I am around 1600s in the ladder, but I don't really ladder too much. I would like to be able to use different playstyles and be able to build my own teams.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing OU since X/Y and I was better in the ORAS metagame than in the actual SuMo meta so I'd like to improve. I play a lot of LC too but i want to have a second tier that i am good at. I havent participated in many OU tours but it's something i might do in the future if i improve.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing at the back end of ORAS and have carried through to the SM meta. I feel I have a decent understanding of the meta through playing and hovering in the OU forums but loads to learn. Help especially needed with identifying opponents team, win cons etc.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): i started with XY, but i didn't get "serious" until ORAS, which i was decent at. i used to tutor for it, and i contributed to the OU forum and OU room significantly during ORAS. i didn't like SM initially, so i waited to see if the meta would improve, but it wasn't really. i've watched a few battles recently, and it looks more enjoyable and more interesting than before to me.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing competitive since mid 2013, almost exclusively OU, and have taken pauses for long periods of time. Right now I'm usually at 1500-1600 in the ladder and have been this way for somewhat a year and a half, so I thought it was time to get some extra help. I think I have an overall great understanding of the game and tier, so I'd like to focus in improving my teambuilding and decision making in battle.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in 2008 ish and I was very active in the DPP metagame at the time. Since then, I've sort of "retired" since I wasn't a big fan of XY's metagame or BW's but I became more involved around ORAS again. I haven't been able to really find a groove when it comes to team building lately so I hope this program can help me.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing on showdown in XY sometime after the deoxys ban i believe. I've played on and off since then, sometimes taking breaks for a few months, then coming back to play mons and work on w/e interested me at the time, all of this depending on how busy I am. I've never actually learned how to play pokemon really; I've always just played on autopilot and built 3-5 minute teams just by putting mons that seem to have decent synergy on a team. As a result of this, I've never really achieved much in competitive pokemon, and would like to change this by learning how to properly teambuild and play through a game.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing competitive Pokemon since I discovered Showdown in 2015, and I would say I'm decent...ish. (Not really.) I understand most of the basics and know most of the sets of Pokemon and playstyle of my opponent from team preview. It's just that I struggle with identifying threats to my team, wincons, metagame trends, teambuilding, and playing for the long-term. I would like to try tutoring to see if I can improve in these areas.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min 3 sentences):
I've playing competitive Pokemon on Showdown! since fall 2016, not too long before the Mega Sableye ban. I understand the basic concepts of competitive Pokemon, greatly comprehend the common sets, playstyles, and strategies, and have won a few battles at points. However, I struggle to full apply these ideas in the heat of battle with constant prediction issue and reckless decisions. I also need some slight help with building, as there are sometimes very large holes in my teams.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing competitively in ORAS and continued playing in SM and I decided to join Smogon to improve. Currently I’m playing SM OU and SM UU. I struggle with laddering (max 1600 in OU), making the optimal plays in battle and also preparing teams for tournaments battles (aka teambuilding). I would consider myself an average player and I know the basics of competitive knowledge.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing mons in late oras, have mained ru for most the time I've played mons, have good experience w/ ou however, but I've sorta hit a point where I'm not really improving and would like to learn some more to be able to play at a higher level. Looked a lot at other available resources, but I feel like I need battling 101 at this point

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing competitively during ORAS in 2016. I have quite a bit of experience of SM OU - I feel as though I am decent at the game but would really like to keep pushing for the higher levels and perhaps aim for some tournaments. I feel as though I get stuck when building teams and would like help with that mainly, though general help in any aspect of my game is appreciated. Anything to help me better my game - I feel like being observed and tutored would be very helpful.

I have played pokemon Showdown for about a year and a half now. I am not a very strong team builder however I have been told to be a fast learner and very open minded person. I have watched many pokemon you tubers such as pokeaim and verlsify and watched pokeaims road to top 10 OU religiously. I feel as I am under average at the game however still try to learn and never get try to get down on myself.
I was told to find a tutor by an 1800 ELO player who said I wasn’t bad! Just need some help getting to the next level

I can use Skype and/or discord
