Tutoring Tournaments are going to be run concurrently every couple of rounds as a new addition to the Smogon Apprentice Program! These are meant to provide an opportunity for program participants to show off just how much they are learning from their mentors as well as build camaraderie between players. Apprentices are encouraged to take advantage of their tutor's team building and battling expertise throughout the tournament!
Due to time constraints, only the first 16 people who indicate interest in the Apprentice Program sign-up thread will be allowed to participate. Entire tutoring rounds last for only three weeks at a time, so do not be discouraged if you miss out. You can always try again the following round!
Please familiarize yourself with the rules below that are specific to Tutoring Tournaments:
The following clauses outlined in the ban list must be followed and enabled for all Tutoring Tournament matches.
