Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Originally, I began playing randbats and ou during the middle of USUM without any clue of what I was doing. After some time, I would somehow find 1v1 and move onto a period where that was the only tier I played. A couple of months ago though, a friend brought me into Monotype and I found that I enjoyed it alot. I began to play more of it and eventually made it into the BLT. During the entire tour experience, I learned that I still had much to learn from. I hope that this tutoring could help me mainly gain a better understanding of building for the tier and a bit of the thought process when battling.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing Pokemon competitively early Gen 6. Played quite a lot of tiers back then but had to stop playing mons mid Gen 7 if i remember correctly. I was hoping to start getting back into mons and learn the tier properly.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I began playing competitive Pokémon towards the end of USUM, but I was never serious about it. With the new generation, I’ve been aiming to learn about various metagames and improve myself as a player, especially in the field of teambuilding and tour scene. I’ve taken part in some monotype tours in generation 8 so far such as Welcome Tour and Summers Seasonals, and although I had decent results as a relatively new user, I came to realize that there are some infinitely better players, builders, and preppers out there. I really hope to be like some of them, being able to build creative & effective teams without relying on anyone, making good predictions & mind-games on a higher level, being confident about myself and my plays. Hence, tutoring from someone knowledgeable about the tier seemed like a step in the right direction. (:

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started in 2018 in USUM. Immediatly, I jumped to Monotype as I found the concept interesting and I started experimenting, eventually I started playing competitively on Ladder with a Flying team (This was on a past alt). Eventually, I got to 1500 and took a break from mono. I never really got involved with the community and pretty much just lurked in chat. After a few more breaks I came back to mono on the tail end of gen 7, took another break and now I've decided to stay in gen 8 and get a bit more into the community.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started in 2018 in USUM. I tried a couple other tiers but pretty much got stuck into monotype for a long awhile. I had to pretty much disappear due to irl responsibilities around the time SwSh got announced but due to less that and the current situation, I've come back like 2 weeks ago and been getting back into mons and gen 8.

I started playing PS (mostly OU) right before XY released and got into Monotype towards the end of ORAS. I played a lot of ladder and room tours in SM/USUM, but stopped playing when SS came out. I returned at the start of April and am applying to improve more as I really enjoy the format and the community and I want to get good enough to participate in tours.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
Started playing mono around late X/Y, early ORAS, but I didn't really begin to improve until S/M came out. Once that gen got further under way, as it went on I began to get more involved in the tour scene but due to time constraints stopped playing the game as often as I had before. This generation began with a repeat scenario for me, where I dipped into tournaments, but due to time I let my activity suffer. Gen 8 is really strange and interesting, so given the opportunity I'd like to learn more about how to make my teams feel more complete, and maybe shake off the rust and get back into tours.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been battling on SD for almost a year now, I've been loving it. Most of the tournament I've done with friends are in monotype so I'd really like to get a grasp of the metagame as I normally play in OU/NatDex. I don't feel like I've been making optimal sets and I'd like help and advice in that respect.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Im mainly a lower tier player (PU/ZU) and I occasionally delve into other tiers. I'm interested in learning in other tiers, so I'd figure I'd start with Monotype. I love this game, and I'd love if i could get a tutor.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitive Pokémon in late 2015 and for a year I only played ORAS OU and VGC. Since 2017, thanks to Marcoasd's teachings, I have dedicated myself to RBY OU, which is now my main tier and in which I have achieved excellent results by winning numerous team and individual tournaments. Over the years I have mainly played on Pokémon Perfect, but in the last year or so I have approached Smogon, a website that introduced me to the Monotype community. I discovered that the latter is made up of very nice guys and with whom I made friends. I would like to learn this tier to be able to play and have fun with them.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): After playing the gameboy games ever since I was a kid, about 5 years ago I finally hopped on showdown after watching some showdown videos on youtube. I was really nervous but soon learned the ropes, and after I discovered monotype was a thing, I never wanted to do anything else (bar hackmons cup lol). In later ORAS I learned I could win room tours, make it to high ladder, discovered leagues etc. Peaked around early Sun and Moon but quit for a while in 2017. Came back for a few patches of USUM, and early SS before maxing was banned. Now that DLC has come and we have better content, with more on the way, I'd really like to pick up the slack and see how much better I can get.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been battling since Gen 6. I started in XY. Got more dedicated by ORAS. I used to only play Monotype but I've since branched off to OU. In Gen 7 I was relatively decent but I liked to bring heat in tours and learned that counter teaming is fun. Gen 8 I've been focusing on OU and with Zarude getting released I'm really interested in monotype again.

I'm super free right now because of the pandemic and I'm gonna commit despite being under the post count threshold

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I started playing ps in gen 7 mainly AAA but also Ubers then I stopped playing for awhile. Started playing ps again and found monotype interesting I believe I started getting pretty competitive right after after the kyurem b ban. I feel some of my sets aren't the best and I would like to learn the meta game better. I also play a ton of 1v1.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): So i've been playing competitive since 2017. I started in VGC and i got to singles in 2020. I've always liked monotype meta, but didn't really played it a lot. I'm very interested in it because I think it is a fun meta and I really like putting 6 poison mons in my team. I often try mono teams in VGC just for fun. Building is where i really lack experience in 6x6 singles metagames

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): i started playing pokemon competitively in 2015 when i first got into showdown, i tried monotype as my first tier and i did really bad and its been sortve my main tier for my entire life on smogon, ive always tried to get better but nothing i have done has worked, i have very very low tournament rankings in any tier, ive dabbled in multiple tiers but none of them getting any success, ive signed up for alot of tours and only very few have i made it past round 2. im kinda meh at building, and i forget alot of things at times and i want to be able to get the meta downpact so where everymove is a split second reaction on the right play instead of doing unnecessary stuff like how i have been.
