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

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).

I played Gen 7 Anything goes for a while but monotype is so challenging that it is very hard but helping me with team stats. I would like to learn to make a balanced team out of these types Steel, Psychic, Dark, Poison, and Fairy.

Your Timezone: EST -4

Usual Hours of Availability: I'm usually available at any given time. The only days that I 100% have something happening on are Tuesday & Saturday's. Sometimes I'll only be able to play on mobile, others I'll be able to be on a PC. My situation is complicated, sorry in advance.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been around for five years, pushing six. I laddered a lot in gen 6-8, then stopped playing for a while due to real life complications. I participated in two SSNL's, and placed Top 8 in one of them. I also placed 2nd in a team-tournament a while ago. I've peaked a lot of time on ladder throughout the generations, but that really doesn't mean much. I don't play a mons a whole lot anymore, but I've recently had the urge to get back into it and possibly participate in some competitive tournaments. I'm aware that a lot of people aren't too fond of me, but I can assure you that I have no intentions of trolling or causing issues about anyone/anything. I just want to play, and I've lost my edge, is all.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing gen 8 randbats about 1-2 months ago, and was pretty bad at it. Then, a week or so later I discovered Gen 8 Monotypes and I switched to it. I have roughly 100ish monotype games and 130ish total games spread through 2 accounts. I play mainly mono ghost and mono electric and I feel as if I am in need of some guidance.

Your Timezone: GMT -4

Usual Hours of Availability: almost everyday from 8 am - 11 pm. But due to school, starting sometime in September its about 6 pm - 11 pm. Almost always 10 am - 11 pm on weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have a little experience with a lot of tiers. This includes the following: RBY OU, BW RU, SM UU, SM PU, SM NU, VGC 2022, VGC 2017, ADV NU, Gen 8 Monotype, Gen 8 1v1 and the slimmest of knowledge in ADV OU. I'm trying to make a successful team for every singles tier throughout each generation - which is the reason I'm (sorta) familiar with so many tiers. I'm attempting to make a good Monotype team (Gen 8) for Ghost, Grass, Fighting, Ice, Rock, Dragon, Water, Fire and Fairy for reasons I will explain to my tutor. Its a lot on hand, but I've been managing bit by bit overtime - though I do believe I still need a bit of help with the Monotype teams.

Are you able to access Discord?: No, but I can access almost any other thing similar to it

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I haven't really had that much experience with competitive Pokemon, outside of TCGO and a few tournaments organised by a community I used to be a part of. In those tournaments, I was mostly doing LC but always wanted to try out this format. While I didn't win those tournaments, I did get pretty far into one of them before I got knocked out.

Yes.
