Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve been around for a while, but I struggle with battling quite a bit. Going into a battle, I usually have the ability to win because my teams are designed well, but I oftentimes lose because I choke. I would also like to work somewhat on my teambuilding too because I often just copy and paste sets that I have seen previously, rather than try to innovate my own sets based around a valid threat in the tier.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): i started seriously getting into mons 3-4 months ago, i had tried playing a year ago but left pretty much instantly. im enjoying it a lot more this time and want to seriously get into the game. i feel somewhat confident in my prediction making, however i struggle hard with analyzing the enemy team and knowing what sets they should be + sometimes i go too hard with a prediction and throw. i often overlook a wincon such as letting all my mons get chipped and losing to a band scizor etc.I'd like to improve in general learn how to find the optimal plays to predict around, and learn how to teambuild and also analyze my enemy team when playing.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): joined showdown in 2013, got pretty decent but just feel like i have stopped improving. Had a bad showing in blt but i know I'm good enough to make tours. started doing tours more often lately and think i can definitely improve a lot through them and this. I can make predictions and all, I'm definitely a competent player but i'm tryna improve ya feel?

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been in mons for 5 years and monotype for a smaller time. I have a decent chunk of mono experience, participating in seasonals, blt and ulc. starting to get more involved in smogon stuff but need a tutor to get to the next step in terms of teambuilding a consistent play. Competent as of now, but deffo feel I have a lot to improve.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I played a lot of metagames when I first found Smogon. I recently got back into Monotype after like a year-long hiatus. I've played a lot of the meta since then, participating (and going positive) in Mono BLT and getting to know the community better. Although I do think I know the metagame fairly well, I definitely could use a lot more metagame knowledge as well as help battling, since I was a bit disappointed in my BLT run because I didn't play my games as well as I would like.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in 2015 and joined Smogon later to be better. I was only playing OU but I want to diversify and I think the monotype is the most fun tier of the generation so I'd love to learn it.

Mostly looked into OU and Monotype since Gen 5, UU and Monotype this gen. Would love to improve on Monotype. Mostly a casual ladder player, testing out different types and teams, but would love to diversify and improve.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Well, I'm not the most liked user, but I like to think I know what I'm doing for the most part regarding battling. I used to be a side server fiend, but I recently parted from Azure and side servers as a whole. I've peaked ladder a few times, not that means anything, and I've participated in ULC (side server event that attracts main groups like Imperium). I only really play Monotype, but I have some experience in OU.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing semi competitively for a few years now only in Monotype. Recently I've been putting in more effort to Monotype and branching out to other tiers like OU. I do well in casual battles but usually fall out of tours R1-R3. I'd like to learn how to battle more efficiently in tours.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been playing competitive, casually, on and off since BW. As of late, though, I've started looking for ways to improve my skills, since I feel I reached a ceiling on what I can learn on my own. I've peaked in the mid-1400s on the Monotype Ladder in the past, and after a couple hundred battles, I've come to learn a bit from experience regarding what to expect against certain types on Ladder. However, I really lack experience in proper teambuilding, establishing win conditions, predicting... Yeah, the works.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: I'm willing to use both.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive pokémon: I have been playing on Showdown since I was eleven and started out my days playing monotype because i loved the gym leader vibe. Then I joined Aftermath league lead by tesla but never really amounted to a big name because of a lack of tournaments and smogon, as I didn’t know how. I was also in X with some big name people so i want to become as good as a battler as them and make up for lost time and I will do anything to achieve this. I am 17 now so hopefully I have my wits on me, looking forward to being mentored it’s an amazing opportunity.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing pokemon since 2011, though I've only been playing competitively since late 2017. I have mainly been playing for fun because I always had the mindset that I should only continue playing a game if I enjoy it, which ultimately led me down the path of just playing for the sake of nostalgia and didn't really help me get better at the competitive aspect of the game. I have played a lot of tiers but the one i have to most success in is Monotype. So I simply wish to get better at battling and building more unique builds to up my game, as opposed to using cookie cutter sample teams. lol
