I've been playing OU competitively since the beginning of XY. I've always hovered around 1500, peaking at 1650 in ORAS. I want to improve upon my fundamental play (both building and battling) to really compete in tournaments, and climb to high ladder consistently (1800+).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’m consistently on top ladder hovering around 1.9-2k for ssou but I been taking a break after doing shifu reqs. I would say I’m pretty good at ssou, ndou, and smou. Also been in the adpl with a record of 5-2, pretty new to the competitive scene in general. Currently partaking in the ssdl and sspl! I just want to take the next step and become an even better player!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've started playing Monotype for almost a year now, but i've also been interested in other tiers as well. OU is one of the most popular tiers and I really want to expand my knowledge on the tier + gameplay so I can get better at the metagame and mons in general. I'm also looking forward to joining more OU tours in the future once I have more knowledge on it.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):

My name is Skeptcal Dingo, but people call me SD. I signed up for tutoring before but wasn’t successful so I looked for other help. In mid February 2020 I found jamvad and his academy. I bought his book and hit 1700 on ss0u in 10 days from 1100. I’ve learnt about tilting, metagame changes and mindset in that time and a hit 1800 for the first time a few months ago. In jamvads academy I was drafted to a PL. I played my first game in week 2 and won. I continued to win both my other matches and Our team went undefeated in the regular season. I watched all replays of my peers for the tier I have chosen to learn, i am at the start of my journey and whilst I have had success pretty quickly I know there is still heaps to learn.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing since ADV. I've peaked around 1800s this gen at the beginning of Crown Tundra but I took a break and I'm finding it hard to get in the correct mindset again. I'd say I'm a low-to-mid ladder player normally, somewhere around 1500-1650 most of the time, with some horrible slumps below that too. I wanted a teacher to help point out my bad plays/habits and to help me go over and games to identify which Mons I should have realized were win conditions and which were not necessary. A teacher to help me evaluate long-term risk/reward in longer balance/stall games plus general team building would greatly up my game.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively last year (but discovered PS! in 2018), and I'm mostly an Ubers player. I explored the tier and its old gens during this year, and now I'd like to learn a new tier. I really like building and discovering new sets, and I think that's an advantage. However, my ingame is not the best, and learning a new tier will help me being better. Finally, learning OU is also a great way for me to help my mates during teams tournaments.

I started playing mons back in 2011 in Pokémon Online, some years after that (late bw2 and beginning of xy) I started playing on a higher level in the spanish community but I ended dropping mons for playing lol. I haven't played mons until 2 weeks ago where I started playing some OU again. I feel the tier is shit but I think is necessary to understand how it works if I'm going to play more and I need help for that u3u.

I have been playing pokemon for 3 years but only in the Ingame since I discovered this page I would like to learn about the competitive and I joined the Major OU and Smogon Tour as a way to get into this tier, I started with sample teams and then I concentrated to play with my teams but I do not handle them all I've been playing for 5 days and with some help in the important aspects of the game I can hold on to the development of SS which is the generation with which I am starting to play OU.
