Welcome to Battling 101! If you're seeking a tutor for Battle Stadium Singles, you are in the right place. Please read all the rules carefully and fill out every part of the application.


THE RULES

  • You must be able to access Discord, or whatever your tutor wants as the primary form of communication.
  • You must be willing to use Pokemon Showdown! even if you are being tutored in a cartridge format such as Battle Spot or VGC.
  • You, the tutee, MUST have at least 35 posts before signing up for tutoring. If you do not reach that threshold, you WILL be skipped.
  • You must have battled competitively for a decent amount in at least ONE of the Smogon tiers or Battle Spot / VGC to sign up. Playing 10 or so matches on the PS! ladder is not substantial enough, ~70 or so is more reasonable. This experience does not need to be for the format you sign-up for; this is just to weed out people who have never played competitively that can improve themselves simply by using resources already available to them without needing a tutor to hold their hand.
  • You, the tutee, are responsible for setting up times with your tutor. Don't expect them to come to you. Take the initiative and post on their VM wall first. Additionally, please be patient if your tutor doesn't respond in the first 2-3 days.
  • Use the Tutee Talk forum to complain about your tutor (or praise them if they're doing a good job). These are no longer mandatory, but if your tutor is ridiculously inactive or is a complete jackass, COMPLAIN HERE.Nobody can see your tutee talk posts except for you and the Battling 101 Staff; everything is confidential.
  • Don't request tutors unless they have agreed to tutor you.
  • If your timezone and hours of availability do not match up with the correct thread, your post will be skipped. Please PM a B101 mod if you are unsure about which thread to post in.
  • You may only post in ONE of the signup threads. Delete your post if you change your mind about signing up for something.
Here is the signup template, and an example sign-up post.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in early XY and spammed Baton Pass on the ladder. I was pretty skilled I guess. I then got more involved with Smogon and started to play in various tournaments like UUPL and later on Snake and SPL. I could use a bit more practice in this tier though, so I'm looking to get help
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: Yes

The Blacklist (aka Battling 101 Detention)
You will be banned from signing up in the future if:

  • You show poor activity over a course of a month (banned for 6 months, infracted for 1 point)
  • You decide during the tutoring round that you do not wish to be tutored anymore, or you mistakenly sign up for a tier you thought was something else, and no longer wish to be tutored. This is most common when selecting Smogon Doubles / VGC, THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING (banned for 6 months)
  • You show a lack of enthusiasm or you're consistently distracted by other things (banned for 3 months)
  • You fail to complete the tutor evaluation form that we will send out during the last week of the round(banned for 6 months, infracted for 1 point)
  • You are annoying to deal with. This will vary from tutor to tutor. Some tutors don't like it when you talk back, argue with them, whine about hax, whine about sucking at Pokemon, or any version of the 'woe is me' attitude. Tutors get pissed at different things, so if they complain to us that you are exhibiting poor behavior, expect to be on the blacklist.(banned for 3-6 months)
Repeated offense of any of the situations above can potentially mean a year ban. If you have been on the blacklist for three different instances, you will be EXPELLED from Battling 101 (perma-ban from signing up).

There's currently no sign-up template or example, but I'll assume the format is the same as the other metagames'.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I've been playing VGC since 2015, but never really bothered to learn Singles until late Gen 7. With the new generation, I'm trying to become a full-fledged BSS player! Though my results aren't too great, I did compete in the Gen 8 Kickoff Tournament and am currently participating in the BSS Open II. I'm fairly active in the Battle Stadium Discord (even if it is just asking questions) and it's not uncommon for me to record myself playing games just to review them later!
Are you able to use either Discord?: Discord is currently my main form of communication.
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: I do!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Played comp on and off since gen 4. Played a little of gen 5, a lot of of gen 6, and a little of gen 7. Really enjoying SwSh and was able to achieve masters rank last season (although I did borrow a rental team of someone else). Looking to get back into the swing of things and get masters rank consistently throughout multiple seasons, and in general just become a better BSS player since I really enjoy playing on cart even though it's just not as fast or efficient as PS.

every day all day until April 24th. When that date comes I'm only available 8pm-11pm EST
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started in Gen7, I play monotype and my building skills are only familiar with Monotype. I've tried expanding to OU, BSS, LC, NU, but I can't seem to expand my teambuilding skills very well in other tiers outside Monotype. I want to learn how to compete in other tiers where I won't have to copy and paste teams from good players, and maybe BSS is a start :^)

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been doing OU on and off since Gen4. I've been focusing on teambuilding in Monotype and BSS to practice more. I just got into cart battling, and I've been working on breeding my comp team for that.
