Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitive Pokémon at the beginning of the year. I had been playing Smogon's random battles for a while and some matches in higher ladders, but I've also participated in a few tournaments. However, I haven't performed well in them. I'm noticing my mistakes and experimenting with different strategies to correct them.

Been playing Pokemon since RBY, but I took a break for gens 6 and 7. I started playing VGC after Isle of Armor came out and have been having a blast with Scarlet and Violet. My first love is RBY, though, so I'd love to talk to someone like-minded about gen 1. I realize I have a long way to go since singles are so different than doubles, but my goal is to get good enough for RBY OU tournament play.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I main LC, and recently wanted to get into an old gen OU and bw looked very fun. Have played LC at a relatively high level doing decent in some teamtours as well as starting for rbywc in rby ou. I'm looking for an experienced tutor that can help me understand the tier, play it at a good level, and build for it.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing showdown formats with ADV around a month ago, and got into gsc about 2 weeks ago cos i saw the ssnl signup was open and was interested, and in a couple of tours for gsc as well. Before playing showdown played competitive mons at a high level in a game called Pokemmo for about 2-3 years. Have a basic understanding about GSC from laddering/watching tour games/reading forums but would like to improve my knowledge with regards to positioning in a game and also especially with teambuilding.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): After doing current gen OU and Randbats for a little bit. I've been mainly laddering in DPP over the last few weeks. Recently been trying to become better at battling in general, knowing what certain strengths and weaknesses I can play around are., and playing safe when at a disadvantage. I don't have too much experience and would love to work with someone at a higher level than I am to compensate for the holes in my Pokemon knowledge.

I haven't really been in the community but I've been seasonally active battler since the days when Pokemon online needed to be installed on your computer. I've played DPP OU and laddered pretty well for a number of years but I do feel like I've hit a bit of a ceiling and I haven't really ever explored the tournament scene thoroughly. Despite experience in the tier I think there is always someone to learn from but I understand if this has more of an inclination for beginners.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I played one team on ladder for a while and hit 1600 with it, and then joined ML season 16 and learned a lot more teams and matchups. Just recently signed up for ADV Global championships. I find that I struggle to get above 1600 on ladder, and would like to change that.
Are you able to use Discord?: I prefer discord over Smogon

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):i started with sm ou hitting 1700 with a rain team as a beginner, then moved to lc and went 6-1 in lpl as well as other experience in tours like rbywc and bkcpl as a dpp lc starter so I think i have most of the fundamentals. Now I want to learn sm ou for real this time, would like to learn piloting at a high level as well as to a lesser degree, building. I hope and look forward to playing sm ou at high level tournaments!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
Over the past year or two, I have played ADV OU and GSC OU both on ladder and in tournaments fairly extensively, if on and off. I played in Mushi League in Season 12, 13, and 15. I have played in both for other tournaments like the Global Championships. As of late, I feel like I have plateaued in terms of my ability to play these 2 tiers in particular. I also have played a lot of other tiers, namely LC and its old gen counterparts.

I've been playing SS OU since mid 2020, and in the past couple of years played in a few SS OU circuit tours. I feel like my play is decent when I focus, but my teambuilding could definitely be improved so that's what I'd like to work on, mainly to gain more flexibility & confidence when prepping for tours.

Yes, "im_tofa". Prefer chat over voice but I'll follow the tutor's preference!

I've played a lot of Pokemon ever since 2015, especially SM OU but I also have experience in other OU tiers as well as various lower tiers. My goal applying for this programm would be to deepen my understanding of two gens present in the classic tournament I feel like I have a decent grip on but still lack advanced knowledge of.
Are you able to use Discord?:
Yep, can voice chat if the tutor is able to

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing mons since 2019 but only seriously since September 2023. I am a huge fan of teambuilding and thats what I generally spend doing. I feel like my overall playing is.... okay. I fail to see longer games and lines that aren't exactly obvious at face value, and in replays tend to miss them until months later. I have been slowly but surely improving in this, but feel like professional help would really lock this in. I mainly play BW OU and my experience in DPP is iffy at best, but I wish to learn the format in as I find it extremely fun to play.
Are you able to use Discord?: Yes, aleksanteri. on discord. I would prefer using VC during coaching
