Your timezone: EST
What tier do you want to learn?: OU, particularly I want to learn how to play stall.
Tell us a little about yourself: Well I've been playing pokemon for several years, ever since I got my first Game Boy. I absolutely loved the early games, and I have played every one of the games (most as a little boy) except for Pearl and Platinum. A few months ago (I think about May-June) I started playing on Shoddy battle for a forum competition on a small Pokemon forum, and instantaneously fell in love with it. I've never been that good, but I have amassed a peak rating of about ~1340. Wanting to get better, I've decided to sign up for the Battling 101 Program, where I can hopefully achieve a better grasp of Pokemon and skill at the game overall.

What tier do you want to learn?: OU, Possibly LC, but OU is priority
Tell us a little about yourself: Yo. I'm Fall. I'm a laid back 16 year old from California. No, I don't smoke weed. Haha. My favorite thing to do in my free time, besides Pokemon stuff, is playing drums. I've been playing drums for about 5 years, and I've been playing Pokemon for a few months now. I've been in kind of a slump Pokemon wise, as all of my teams end up failing and I feel like my long term thinking skills are not very good. Oh, and living in Cali, and being in school, I'm only going to be available from 12-2ish EST, except on Tuesdays. Cool thanks.

What tier do you want to learn?: UU
Tell us a little about yourself: I have been playing pokemon for a while now, but never got the chance to play it competitively, so I have little to no experience. At first I wanted to sign up for OU, but seeing how crowded it is right now, and since I'm already interested in trying UU to begin with, I decide that I'll go with UU. I'll be available around 7-11 AM EST.

What tier do you want to learn?: OU or UU (mostly OU)
Tell us a little about yourself: Well, I can put together solid teams but they have mucho gaps in coverage, but for some reason they work. But when I fix the gaps, they don't work. I am pretty decent at stall, but I'm more comfortable with heavy offense. I've been playing pokemon since the good old Red and Blue days, but I just started competatively battling in this past Dec. As for non pokemon related stuff, I play guitar(ish) and I am trying to get somewhat decent at photoshop.
This is no longer the most suitable timeslot for me and I am therefore moving to the other thread.
Sorry for an inconvenience.

Tell us a little about yourself: Well I'm a metalhead, mostly a thrasher but I love power and classic metal.
Anyway, I've been playing pokemon since I was 13 years old, I wanted to play the game since the anime was being shown on the WB... remember? xD
So recently I bought Platinum for 20 dlls across the border in Mexico in a swap meet. And I wanted to play against other people using the wi-fi and when I did I realized I SUCKED!!
I had heard about the tutoring offered here so I decid to join and learn in order to get better and build a great team using pokemon I love.

What tier do you want to learn?: OU and UU. If I had to choose only one, I suppose I'd choose ... ... ... UU.
Tell us a little about yourself: I'm one of those folks who absolutely love strategy games. When it comes to Pokemon, I love the "NU" tier, as nobody gives it much respect. That being said, I want to start becoming active in ALL tiers, and become a decent all-around player. I love Poker, I'm very athletic, and I'm Canadian. Surprisingly though, I don't drink beer or play hockey. Sorry 'bout that.

What tier do you want to learn?:OU
Tell us a little about yourself: I love strategy games, and i love tons of pokemon. I can build teams with a generally good strategy, but not use them to their full. That said, i built a team last night in about 5 minutes, just copying out of the pokemon movesets section, and it won all but 2 of my battles.Sadly, 5 of them were forfeits the second i beat the guy's Blissey with my Scizor. I like breeding pokemon, however i can't IV breed, or RNG, so i only wi-fi battle with some friends on pokecommunity. I came here with 2 purposes:
-Obtain some good pokemon as pc's threads are drying up.
-Get better at battling so when the mods unblock me from their shoddy server (i beat them, and they got angry) i can go back and beat them again.

What tier do you want to learn?:UU
Tell us a little about yourself: Well, I live in Egypt, I'm a grade 9 student, I like football. I love video games, especially Final Fantasy series and Kingdom Hearts series, as well as Call Of Duty. I always play OU and have found some success, Whenever I try to play another tier, I automatically suck. I want to start learning the two other tiers for the smogon tour, and I thought Uber would be simpler to try to teach myself. My favourite Pokemon is Jolteon, the rest of my faves are the entire eevee line, Scyther(not Scizor), Dragonite, and Jirachi.

I have loved playing Pokemon since the early days of Elementary school, it's really fun. However, I just can't grasp certain important concepts of Pokemon competitive battling.

What tier do you want to learn?: Ubers (in general) - touch up on OU if we have enough time.
Tell us a little about yourself: I like walks on beach, drinks with hats and chicks with racks. Been playing every tier on shoddy for awhile now. Except for Ubers. Ubers is the least played tier in the meta for me (even NU and NFE I have played more of) So by now I think is a good time to sink into Ubers and really learn that. (I want a head start with a tutor tho, otherwise I don't think I'll be able to get into it.)
