Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I have a rudimentary understanding of competitive play, usually playing in BSS and VGC, and I'm pretty confident in my general knowledge about these formats; cartridge metas are, unfortunately, not for me, due to the amount of powercreep present. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy SWSH OU, so on the recommendation of a few friends and acquaintances, I'd like to give some old gens a try.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been playing pokemon competitively since roughly around late DPP/early BW. I've always dabbled, been to a few irl VGC tournaments as well, done a few online smogon tours sporadically but now I'd like to take it higher. I like the old gens metagames and ADV is one of the more interesting tiers imo but it's one of the old gen tiers I understand the least, so I'd like to gain a deeper understanding of how to play it and build for it.

I have zero issues using discord in my hours of availability.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing PS! in around 2016 with just randbats until I branched out to other tiers and got smogon in 2020. Reached round 11 of sm ssnls, r9 of ubers, r7 oras, so I can play various tiers. I suck at no preview tiers though so I would love learning DPP especially because building looks so fun here.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve played quite a lot of it. I started 3 years ago; and sd helped me a lot. Between my 2 main acc, I may have 300 battles, despite I’ve cleared the matches counter a few times, so it may be a +500. I made this acc in Smogon yesterday; I hope this is not a problem.

I started off in SS OU, but then I got pretty bored so I moved on to old gens. I like BW and ADV particularly, and wanted to branch out more to gens such as GSC and DPP. I'm pretty much trying to get decent at every old gen at this point and that goal is going well for me.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing mons competitively for probably 8 years or so. Pretty much exclusively ladder. I've made it onto probably at least the top 50 in the ladder in all the old gens except for RBY, which is actually the generation I find myself most enjoying currently. I've bounced around old gens for the past few years and I'd really like to be able to settle down in one and hopefully make a name for myself by getting into tours and by being involved in the community. I find the nuances of RBY pretty enjoyable and really would like to invest in the tier. Hopefully we can work together, thanks for reading.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in late ADV era/ begining of DP era on NB and SB battle simulators. I've never been a very skilled player but I got enrolled in Smogon community in 2010 while BW was the main generation and since then I've been fascinated exclusively by old gens (gen 1-5). I've only played minor tournaments without any successful and from all over the generations I play I feel GSC is the hardest one to get better with and I'd like to improve as a player. As a side note take into account that my english is very crappy so please whoever wants to help me, please, be patient.

I have never played ADV besides a few low ladder games. I want to play the tier with Sleep and Dugtrio because I think DPP is banning them too. I want to become tournament-level as fast as possible (but not any faster). Hopefully I get a tutor who will tell me what is good and why off the bat, I want to reach the cutting edge of the meta.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in late BW/early XY with VGC, but moved onto OU after VGC 14. Since then, I've mostly played current generation OU and UU on and off and found it very fun, albeit somewhat frustrating when I make choke plays. I've done well on the ladder, but I'd like to refine my play a bit more and participate in tournaments more frequently. In addition, I'd like to get better at DPP and ORAS OU, since those are the metagames I remember enjoying a lot.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I'm mainly a SM main. I play a few no-official teamtours and tours like sm ssnl or sm cup during the ST. On the ladder side, I usually manage to reach around 1700 of elo (even if I really never tried to topladder tbh). I apply again because my tutoring is over, so I would like to learn another tier. I choose DPP because, after playing a bit on ladder and a few tour games, the tier seems fun and I really find tier without team preview really interisting.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing competitive in early 2015 with ORAS OU, before taking a hiatus in early 2017. I started playing older gens, particularly DPP OU, around October 2020 where I had a wifi battle with BKC. Around this time, I also participated in a few Discord tournaments, particularly a premier league on Jamvad‘s Discord channel. I’ve played quite a few ladder games, across different alts, but only manage to sit in the 1300s, and have lasted to round 3 of the last DPP Global. I participate RoA room tours from time to time, where I’ve won for DPP NU more recently. DPP is my all-time favourite metagame, and the one I find the most joy in playing, hence it is the metagame where I strive to be the best I can be in. I want to greatly improve on my teambuilding knowledge and ability, as well as my piloting skills, while continuously learning about the metagame. I feel like i’m inconsistent in my plays, where I make great plays one moment, and chokes the next.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I started playing competitive with SWSH in the VGC format. I won a couple of locals (PC and MSS) and then when the lockdown hit i transitioned to online tournaments and got a 3rd place in a Pardini's Battle Dome.
Regarding singles i started playing with GSC OU and competed in a GSC PU Smogon tour. I then explored RBY and ADV by myself. I'd like to become a better overall player and start competing in Smogon seasonal tournaments!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I used to play the various Battle Facilities; if I have any "claim to fame", it's that I more or less made this team which encapsulates everything I don't like about current gens. Played some RBY OU and gen8 Doubles randbats recently to mediocre results (~75% GXE). I'd like to learn ADV; here's the replay of the most recent ADV OU battle I had, where I'm piloting a beginner sample team by pasy_g. That's about all I can do, I'd like to improve at teambuilding in particular, all my teams are bad.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I started in 2017 with Sun and Moon and started learning by myself through smogon and other sites. I have been playing showdown more and more on my android, training my pokemon and buding teams but I maintain a ratio of 50-50 wins since I lack more in depth experiencial understanding of predictions and synergy in my teams. That's why I think any generation will do for now. I'd like to learn that so I can be the very best the world has ever known.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I started playing in March 2020 and I specialized in DPP in September 2020. I laddered a lot between September 2020 and March 2021 but I stopped cause it was tilting me so hard :issou: . I also participated to many tournaments : Winter SSNL, DPP GC, and more recently Summer SSNL where I made top 16 ( R8 ) and many rdm Discord tours.
I want to get better at teambuilding where I struggle a lot ( I'm always using teams from other people, my own teams are ok but too much MU fish I think, I used one of them for SSNL R8 and I lost because I faced a really bad MU G2 but it was my fault for using this ). My ingame is fine but as everyone I still have a lot to learn. I also want to know what is a consistant team in DPP. ( maybe it doesn't exist :paz: ).
PS : I restart laddering and wtf I'm actually enjoying it, Praise DD Tar and CB Gyara.
