Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): i never played competitive for real, i usually stick to randbats or cc1v1 without really putting too much effort into it. In the past 2 years i sometimes played some tier more seriously, mostly monotype, 1v1 and dOU (all gen 7), and i was in top 500 in all these 3 but i never did better than that. Between the 3 i loved playing dOU and i really want to be a good player of this tier in gen8. I also spoke a bit to sawamura lately and, if possible, i prefer to be assigned to them.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing 1v1 and 2v2 on Pokémon Showdown! for about a year, and recently took an interest in DOU. I entered the most recent seasonal and OSDT, using teams passed by a 2v2 friend, and I have played on the DOU ladder, all to limited success. The formats I play most often are very quick, and do not allow switching, so I struggle the most with long-term planning and knowing when to switch/sack. I look forward to improving my battling skills, and I hope this is an enjoyable experience for you too >~<

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Ive been playing competitive since BW first came out, have played every gen OU since then, and Gen 6 onward UU and RU as well. Very little experience in Doubles (basically just the odd Doubles randbats) and I've got the itch to learn now. I know the basics of theory, since I read the discussion threads every now and then for fun and I keep up with Flying Press and used to read the Smog, but theres probably gaps in my knowledge I would love to fill.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):I have been playing VGC since 2020. I have had alot of success with VGC with making Top 16(plyrs: 39) in BDC and Top 16 in Mt.Silver (plyrs :64+) and other grassroots tourneys. I have battled against alot of top player in VGC. As for DOU I am quite okayish at it I have 65-70% GXE and 1400 (iirc). I want to learn more of DOU since I really like playing with 2 mons on the field. I have posted some stuff on the Doubles OU forum from what I have seen while playing the meta game.

I've been playing doubles and VGC in Showdown for 4 years now and 1400+ is the farthest I could get in VGC and doubles tiers so far as my time allows me to play. I am very resourceful when doing my researches in every current meta changes and am very eager to be taught. I also play competitive doubles in PokeMMO and loves competing in every tournament within my availability.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I am very bad at it. The more I play, the more I realize I understand absolutely nothing. This is not like the competitive fighting games I play, and I feel very lost; need someone to guide me because these YouTube tutorials are NOT cutting it.
Are you able to use Discord?: Yup.
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: Mmhm. I can read.

Personal Note: I promise i'm not here to waste anyone's time. Competitive video games are a comfortable environment for me and I understand that I need to learn. Please don't hold the soft requirements against me; i'd post on the forums, but i'm generally the lurker type unless it is a IRC style chatroom *cough, Discord*, or I have relevant data to add; of which I do not currently for Pokemon.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I got into showdown around november 2020 and at first only played the singles formats. But then about 4-5 months ago I started playing Doubles OU and I have really enjoyed it and played on ladder quite a lot. But I feel like I have hit a ceiling in terms of my skill and am looking to improve at the format.

I started playing in 2018 but at that time I did not understand English well so I had stopped playing it, and was playing competitively in the pokemon games of nintendo 3Ds / Nintendo Switch, 2 years later in July I created an account to play showdown in July of 2020 and I liked the DOU tier and I started to play it with my friend who taught me some strategies, due to studies I stopped playing showdown for a long time, until I returned at this time because I felt like it.

I have known and played pokemon for years but I was never encouraged to play in competitive mode due to my lack of experience in the subject, so I would like to learn and get into this game mode. (I have never been encouraged before by my lack of experience and not being able to fit in well)

I would like a tutor who speaks Spanish, my base language is Spanish, for my taste I prefer the tutor "Zikam"
