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

Current Tutors:

kythr
Laroxyl
Luthier
tazz

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, should have at least 15 posts before signing up AND your account's age should be a minimum of at least 1 month old before signing up. If you do not reach that threshold, you will likely be skipped.
    • This is not a hard requirement meaning you may still be paired without satisfying it, but if you want to ensure you are compliant and you wish to attain 15 posts before applying, DO NOT spam post elsewhere in the forum. That is an infractable offense and we do not encourage such behavior from potential Tutees.
  • 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).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I'm a DOU player that has been playing competitively since 2016. I've had good results in DOU tours but I absolutely suck at single tiers and want to get better which is why I'm here. I decided to go with LC because I'm already playing doubles lc in LPL so I have a little experience playing with some of the mons already, and I have enjoyed watching the other LC games/replays as well.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
Playing pokemon since 2018 and on smogon since 2019, I played SM OU when it was current gen abd was interested in LC. With the release of SwSh, I started to play LC with correct results (4-2 LPL and some fine wins) but I don't feel I'm getting better in the tier and I want to step up with LCPL coming. Otherwise, my ingame is correct and I have a good knowledge of the metagame and how the LC works.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been playing LC for about 2 and 1/2 years. I was in tutoring for SM LC and was taught by a great tutor (S/O Lilyac) who helped me develop my fundamentals well. I've been relatively active in SS LC, writing analyses, articles, and forum guides to help players, so I have good understanding of the metagame and building process. Reason I am signing up is to increase my likelihood of getting drafted for the next LCPL, and I think a tutor can help me improve to reach that point!

I start LC with the winter seasonal , i played only LPL after that, with not a great ratio, and played STT (good french tournament).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
Playing since 2020, i first started to play in SMOU in some french tournaments and in ladder, i've learned that tier with a good french player. In the end of the year i've played in LC for a french tournament and i really loved it, so i begun to play in that tier. I first learn a bit how to teambuild from a french player (TDW) and i started to play in smogon tournament, like LC Seasonnal, LC Ladder tour and LC Open. My goal is to increase my level Ingame and increase my level in preparation for future competitive tournaments.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I play mons since 2019 and I'm an OU mainer, besides playing LC in the past. I already have experience with tournaments and stuff, recently qualifying for OLT playoffs. I want to learn this tier again because I like it and I'm playing it on another tour, so I think that now, after Vulla's ban, it's the ideal moment to start playing it again.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitive Pokémon in Generation 7 using Random Battles. Around the end of March of last year, I decided to give Monotype a whirl because I had some friends that were urging me to try it. Around January of this year, I began to play UU and have had decent success in the tier. After playing that for awhile, I’d like to learn a different tier and LC seemed interesting due to the vastly different metagame.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing poke since 2015 but it was never serious, 1 year ago I started playing on ps and I saw the amount of levels and things there are, I was interested in lc since it is a very fun level with a lot of potential, I have played tournaments in smogon giving good results and reaching high rounds, although I feel that I can improve a lot, I am currently playing tournaments and I want to be a contribution to the teams that chose me,I still have a lot to learn.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing pokemon on Pokémon Showdown in 2018 but my first tour on smogon was in 2019. I did a lot of suspect tests and I got experience in different tiers. Now I want to take the final step to became a better player overall. The tier that I prefer is LC and it's also the tier that I played the most in the last year, but I feel that I need something to became better.
