    Welcome to the signup thread of the tutoring tournaments for Battling 101! Here, all tutees who signed up for rounds 69 and 70 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 signup thread will be allowed to participate. If we get more, however, I will consider increasing the number of participants. 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 rounds 69 and 70). For reference:

    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 (BW 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.
    • Wifi Clause: Team Preview must be enabled for all BW games.

    Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT -5 I am available any time during the weekends, and for around half an hour after 3:00 on weekends.

    What tier do you want to learn?:BW2 OU

    Tell us a little about yourself: I am a 14 year old 8th grade student, that can't wait until high school. (My gradeschool sucks balls) I have been playing pokemon since I was little and have been going off and on from the game ever since. Lately, I have been getting into competitive battling, because I am a competitive person in general. I have in some ways mastered some pokemon tiers, but OU is the one that I want to be really good in. I know how to team build decently (which means that I am an half assed team builder) and I know the metagame very well. What really lacks for me is my playing skills, which is of course the most important thing. I hope that being tutored by a master in the tier can help me get to my ultimate goal of getting to over 1900 on the ladder in all the major tiers.

    Will you be willing to do tutee talk threads on your tutors?:Yes

    Why I have under 25 posts: I am the person that lurks around, but doesn't post. I only post here to express my opinions on general topics for metagames. (if you cared to look at my posts) If I really wanted to, I could have many more posts about miscellaneous stuff, but I choose to be the silent guy that doesn't talk, until its totally necessary.

    Tell us a little about yourself: I've been playing Pokemon since I was little. I've played nearly every game and then started to get bored. Then I found out and I got into competitive Pokemon a few months ago. I'm having trouble team building properly and identifying Pokemon set which causes the to lose a lot of battles that I could otherwise might have been able to win.

    What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a freshman in college. I’ve started playing Pokémon since the first generation games came out. (I still have them lying around somewhere back home.) About 2 years ago, one of my friends who was really good at competitive battling introduced me to this site. I was overwhelmed by the whole process at first but I have decided to give it another shot. Having said that, I’m pretty new to competitive battling but I am definitely eager to learn all that I can, if it means making me better at competitive battling, especially team building. :D

    Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a college student, I've been playing Pokemon since Blue came out, and I used to like creating character builds for City of Heroes. After City of Heroes closed last November, I started looking for a new game to create character builds on. I never found that game, but I found something better: Pokemon. However, that does have something in common with making City of Heroes characters: I suck at it. I can complete the games, but when it comes to competitive play, I don't even know where to begin! I'm applying to this program in order to learn.

    What tier do you want to learn?: Mostly BW OU
    Tell us a little about yourself: I am a college student whose first game was LeafGreen and have played an incredible amount of Emerald in an attempt to get as close to competitive as possible: the Battle Frontier. I have rudimentary understanding of difficult battles and team composition to have a little success in the Showdown. However, that still means I lose more than I win. Given my abysmal experience I consider winning at all amazing. That being said, I really want to make my wins outnumber my losses by understanding the BW Metagame better.
    I will also be willing to do the Tutee Talk Threads
