Welcome to round 66 of Battling 101. If you were tutored last round, make sure you send in you tutor evaluations. Our tutors dedicate a lot of time to this program and the evaluations help us assess their contributions. If you are seeking a tutor, you're in the right place. Fill out the information below to be assigned a tutor.

Tell us a little about yourself:

To clear up any confusion, here is an example of what my application would look like:

Username: Kevin Garrett
Age: 20
Shoddy Username: Kevin Garrett
Your timezone and usual hours of availability: GMT-5, 4:00PM-2:00AM
What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 UU
Tell us a little about yourself: I am the reason luvdiscs were implemented on Smogon. Aside from that, I deleted all of my posts because they were all terrible. I really want to learn how to play Pokemon the right way because I have struggled with it for so long and put in a lot of time to get better, but can't improve at all.

YOU MUST PROVIDE A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF WHY YOU SHOULD BE TUTORED IF YOU HAVE FEWER THAN 25 POSTS. Additionally, you must be able to use Pokémon Online, Pokémon Showdown or at least Shoddy Battle (if you only wish to learn DPP OU).

Important: In addition, after your time of tutoring, please take the time to fill in the evaluation form and send it to the entire tutoring staff. This helps us on so many levels! All tutees from previous rounds are expected to submit evaluations of their tutors as well.

One more thing: If you were skipped in the round before this one, make a note somewhere in your sign-up post that this was the case. It makes it easier for us when we do the pairings.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: French student, playing for like 6 months, hanging with friends most of the time when I don't play pokemon.
Why I have less than 25 posts: Mostly because I've created an account for this round.

I really want to improve my skill as a competitive battler. I'm a fast-learner and enjoy all kind of gameplay.

My tutor on previous round didn't answered me; PDC agreed to take me as his second tutee, but we couldn't really see each other because of the different timezone.
Nachos told me I'd have a tutor for sure in round 66.


Also, Delko agreed to tutor me this round.

What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a pretty dedicated kid, I enjoy posting on pokemon forums in their competitive pokemon sections. I'm not too bad of a battler and I've been battling competitively since June 2011, and I'm sure I've progressed somewhat. If I set my mind to it, I can accomplish many things - in real life and competitive battling. I've managed to earn myself some milestones in the past year, but tutoring can give me just that final boost

Under 25 Posts: I don't really have too much to write/contribute to smogon at the moment, but I know what I'm talking about. I could post/contribute more to smogon if I had that extra little tutee experience; then I'd be more acknowledged of what I can post, where and have a clear idea of exactly what i'm contributing

Dragonuser has agreed to tutor me, I see him on other forums quite often, and timezone difference won't be a problem

Tell us a little about yourself: I'm an average 19 years old guy. In my free time I like watching anime, reading, drawing, hanging out, etc. I'm a timid person at beginning but once I get used to someone, then I can talk with him/her very easily.

After lurking for a long time, I decided to make the big step some months ago. After a rough beginning, I became somewhat decent but I still struggle in things like teambuilding and I would appreciate if someone could help me.

Tell us a little about yourself: I live in England, and have played Pokemon since I was about six. I started playing competitively about a year ago. I don’t suck completely-but I could really do with some help on battle strategy and teambuilding. I’m generally a friendly person, and I am good at learning. I like making new friends as well, and I love using under-rated Pokemon.
Last round, I was tutored by Texas Cloverleaf but we only spent about half an hour together.
I’d like to request Molk please.

What tier do you want to learn? BW2 OU

Tell us a little about yourself: I’m a computer science student. I started playing pokemon in the black and white generation. Someone told me about smogon and I saw pokemon was a little more complex than I thought; I honestly liked that, which is why pokemon is now my favorite game.
I read about IV’s, EV’s, and started RNG abusing for some pokes. I’ve been trying to build a team using smogon’s analysis, but when it comes to sinergy, picking the right pokes , and using them to their highest potential, I have some problems.
Among other interests, I really like maths, languages, computing, I really enjoy strategy games such as UNO, chess, and Pokémon. Jesus is the most important thing in my life.

Brief explanation of why I should be tutored (less than 25 posts): I should be tutored because I really want to learn how to be a better player, and I want to have a better game experience by making better strategies. I will give it the required amount of time and dedication.
Right now I don’t have so many posts because I feel like I don’t have the required knowledge to provide useful contribution.
I look forward to be tutored because I want to be an active member to the community and help other people if necessary.

Tell us a little about yourself: I'm an 18 year old aspiring chef who also played guitar, bass, drums, piano, banjo, and harmonica. I've been playing Pokemon since Red/Blue came out and have never stopped. I'm a decent BW2 OU battler but I want to get better so I can try and get farther in tournaments and whatnot. I was tutored by Skynet a few months ago and he helped me with some team building strategies but we only got 2 sessions in. I just feel like I still have a lot to learn though.

What tier do you want to learn?: BW2 OU
Tell us a little about yourself: I love to play pokemon competitively, and I found myself incompetent with playing OU, which is why I am signing up. Aside from pokemon, I love to play ping pong and swimming. I feel as though a strong tutor can be a plus for me since BW2 was released.

Reason to be tutored (under 25 posts): I have been contributing to many charity organizations which have hindered my availability on smogon. However, I have taken a break for a while which has opened up my availability to be tutored/more active on smogon. I will be a strong candidate for a tutee and I feel that I absorb a lot of information, especially pertaining to pokemon. I have also been skipped twice in the last two tutor sign ups if it matters for anything.

I have been skipped in rounds 62, 63, and 64.

I have been guaranteed a more reliable tutor for this round.

Dragonite is the offensive base of my teams.i would love to learn from a veteran who could help me polish up my teams. Also, no Hax Jiraichi, hate that thing.....>.>
