    Please familiarize yourself with the rules below that are specific to Tutoring Tournaments. They can be found on-site here, but I will list them below for your convenience.

    1. Battles will be 6 on 6 B/W OU played on the Smogon Server of the Pokemon Online simulator.
    2. Tournament rounds will last a maximum of 1 week. No extensions will be granted. It is up to the discretion of the tournament administrator to determine who will advance in the event of an incomplete match.
    3. Pokemon that are considered "Uber" are banned from use on all teams. Smogon's tier list is supreme. Smogon's ban list can be found here.
    The following clauses must be enabled for all Tutoring Tournament matches.

    • Timed Battle: Select this clause when challenging for all Smogon Tour matches. This is necessary in the interest of finishing the tournament in a speedy manner.
    • Species Clause: A player cannot have two of the same Pokémon on their team. For example, a player cannot have two Koffings on his or her team.
    • Sleep Clause: A player cannot put two or more different opposing Pokémon to sleep using attacks that induce sleep to opposing Pokémon.
    • Evasion Clause: A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause.
    • OHKO Clause: Players cannot use moves that have a chance of instantly KO opposing Pokémon. For example, Horn Drill is an illegal move to have on a Pokémon's move set.
    The last two rounds saw DC. and iLeBronz take home the win; will you be the next tutee to earn a spot in the hall of fame? Sign-up and find out!

    Sign-up info (open)
    Welcome to the third sign-up thread of the newly revived tutoring tournaments for Battling 101! Here, all tutees who signed up for round 53 and were tutored by someone are eligible to sign up to play. Due to time constraints, only the first 16 people who indicate interest in the Apprentice Program sign-up thread will be allowed to participate. Also, please note that this is a BW OU tournament. Simply post your profile as you did when you signed up to get tutored (we will be checking everyone's post to make sure that they were in fact tutored during round 53). For reference:

    Tell us a little about yourself:I'm a drummer in a local Post-Hardcore band and I love it. Ive played Pokemon since it first came out but about 2 years ago I started doing competitve and haven't looked back. Ive been in the top 10 on the RU ladder many times. I'm pretty good at battling and prediction but team-building is my big weakness. I really want to learn the BW OU metagame and be successful with it. My best playstyles are balanced and offense.

Outside of Pokemon I enjoy playing Basketball, Football, Baseball, and Video Games.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT+3 i'm available all day, erryday

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW OU, ADV OU

    Tell us a little about yourself: Couple of months ago I started to get decent in BW OU. Then I had to stop playing for 5 months because of real life, and I started to play again recently and I still need to adjust to the current metagame. I really want to improve my battling strategy, such as long-term thinking and prediction, as I am decent in team building, but would like to improve in that too. My goal is to win one of the annual Smogon Tournaments, or at the very least, get as far as the finals or semi-finals. Also with the Smogon Tour coming up, if we have time I'd like to get started on ADV, it's one of those metagames I've never really looked into, and I'd really like to learn it for tour.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT-5, depends on the day as I work and am scheduled random shifts. I know two weeks in advance. Should be okay late most nights in my timezone.
    What tier do you want to learn?: DP OU, BW OU. BW OU takes priority, but both would be excellent
    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a guy from Southern Ontario, I go to university (should start up the last week of this round, no big deal). I've been competitively battling for over a year, and I'm decent, but I just need that little bit to put me over the edge. think a major part of that is my team building. And hax, but you can't do anything about that ;) Hoping to Rep Canada next world cup ;)

    In ;)

    Tell us a little about yourself: 18 year old that loves sports and video games about to go off to college in SD. Outside of pokemon also play SC2 pretty regularly. Played some B/W, but then for a couple reasons basically stopped battling entirely. Hoping to try to get back into the metagame now and eventually get more involved in Smogon in general.

    Guys, this isn't a sign-up thread to be tutored. This is, as the title indicates, a sign-up thread for the tutee tournament. This is for the people who were tutored during round 53 and want to compete against other apprentices.

    Tell us a little about yourself: Most of the Smogon staff knows me. I left competitive battling about two years ago because I was disappointed with the standard tier at the time, in addition to simply getting bored of Pokemon. Now that the next generation of Pokemon is out, I'm ready to give competitive battling another try.
