Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Played a lot of PU and OU in ORAS around 2016, however, come SM I trailed off in activity as I wasn't really enjoying the tiers. With hints of activity in between, I came back in late 2019 and started making posts in 1v1. Soon, I found myself playing for 1v1PL and doing QC/VR for the tier. I've entered a shit ton of random tours notably the Mono OM Cup where I played AAA going 4-2 and I've decided to try my hand at mono as it seems like an interesting and fun MU based tier.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): hm, I started playing competitive in 2018, my main tier is VGC aka doubles, I started playing VGC in 2019, for 2020 I qualified for the worlds but it was suspended due to the covid :^)
Well, I think I play singles "decently" and I would like to learn another tier (i dont like doubles anymore xd) and I feel that monotype is the ideal

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I got into competitive years ago, but it's only recently that I've gone really into it. I play many tiers, including ou, ubers, ag , sometimes VGC, monotype and some oms. I've never been that good outside of AG and would like to improve. Mostly I feel it's dumb mistakes that cost me and would certainly like to improve on that front.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I started playing PS when I was 13 back in 2015 and spent a lot of time with side server leagues, but I only really started getting into the tournament scene about a year or so ago. I feel like I'm at a level where I'm comparatively better than most of my peers in these leagues but I still have more room to grow in becoming a known and consistent tournament player. Having mentors such as LuckyPiper, Taide, and Crashy has helped me tons along the way, so I'd like to continue my growth as a competitor in this community.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I started playing showdown in 2018. Monotype was always my favorite tier but I am bad at team building so I mainly used samples or borrowed teams from my friends. After taking break form showdown for a year I started playing showdown again and want to improve in gen 8 monotype

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I must have been lurking here since the early days of the Smog, so I understand more or less all the theory and have picked up a ton of trivia from all across the Smogon metas. The reason why I'm looking for a tutor is that I want to develop a healthier mindset when it comes to losing and learning, something I've never been able to do on my own.
I find competitive Pokémon and especially Monotype incredibly fun and am earnestly interested in getting better as well as participating in the community, but I have big trouble seeing "the light at the end of the tunnel" and would appreciate any help I could get in getting a foot in the door.
What I have is mountains of theoretical knowledge and trivia from all across many generations of competitive Pokémon and a willingness to get better - what I want to learn is the attitude required to take losses in stride and involve myself in tournaments and other community activities so that I can actually use it.
Just so any prospective tutors have been warned, tutoring me will likely be less strategy and more psychotherapy - but I know some people like that.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing SSLC. After a while I moved to other tiers, including Monotype. I'm seeking for help not in the theory, but in the practice: I'm more than capable of understanding what is shit and what is good, but in practice I very often make mistakes.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've lightly played a bunch of tiers like 1v1, playing some tours here and there for it, as well as NFE and some past gen OUs a while back but I've never really succeeded competitively in a tier or have never made a good team lmao which is something I wanna improve. With the corona around, I'm just sat at home playing random tiers and Monotype was the fun pick. I've been playing on the ladder for a bit now and I'm enjoying the games but I want to improve ofc

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been playing competitive pokemon since 2017 where i first got into monotype. I was very bad back then of course but around 2018/2019 i joined a side server which has since moved on, they've helped me a lot from where i was, however i still feel like i need help in monotype. I've also played around in many areas in the 3 (4?) years i've been on showdown such as 1v1 and OU. School and lack of interest made me leave showdown for a bit, however i'm back and i want to be good in the monotype scene again!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I'm relatively new to competitive, and got introduced to monotype by a friend who encouraged me to participate in the Dracovish suspect test (Natdex Mono) and lent me some of his teams to do so. I kinda found the concept of monotype fun because of that experience and I want to learn more about the tier. My main goal would be improving/gaining skills on building monotype teams and how to properly do risk management in battling.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I almost exclusively played mono normal in gen 6 and 7, and experienced some decent ladder success doing it. I returned to battling a few months ago, and have begun participating in tournaments. While I have familiarized myself with the current metagame, I feel as though my biggest issue when battling is not always thinking through the plays I make and making mistakes that come back to bite me later on. I really wish to truly take the next step as a player by patching up some of the issues I come across when battling, and I'd really like to learn how to better utilize offensive teams in a heavily offensive metagame.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've played alot, ive been around for 8 years on showdown alone and played on PO before showdown. I started off in OU back in gen 5 and then played alot of Mono in gen 6. I took most of gen 7 off due to the fact that I did not like z moves, also not a fan of dynamax but thats just me i suppose. I want to get back in to the competitive again, I'm not really good but willing to learn.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Joined Smogon early 2020 and had my first experience with CPL, found it interesting enough to stick around till now. I've played in multiple team tours and have had some success in some, others not so much. Individual tour results I'm still working on though. Monotype for a while now is the only tier I'm enjoying aside from some lower tiers that I find pretty meh. Just want to be able to build efficiently in mono since rn my builds are pretty hit or miss, improving on play too is always something I'm trying to do.
