Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Well, I havent really played sw/sh ou with own built teams, just samples or teams from sm ou with minor changes ofc. I tested many teams in ss ou, but i never got higher than ~1450 on ladder. I started playing OU in 2018 (USUM), but i also didnt came high at ladder. I participated at some ss+oldgens ou tours, but my best result was the 3rd round.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've mostly just played Old Gens, so I'm lacking in experience when it comes to preview gens. The tier I've played the most is DPP OU and I started playing it on the ladder and then making my way up to team tournaments. My weaker areas in competitive pokemon is the understanding of a gen + building for it, so that's what I want to strengthen.

I've played Pokemon Revolution for a while now, I wanted to look for some challenge cause it seemed boring to only play with 500 people around. Some more serious things.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I play Underused quite a lot, having spent the roughly 3 months in the community. I'm a decent player and teambuilder, but i think my skills can be honed with the tutoring program. I've been meaning to dip my toes into OU for a while now and i think now is the perfect time to start!

Started playing about July 2019, playing SM OU and hitting about 1300, quit for a bit and started playing a bit at the start of SS. Took a couple breaks, and really started competitively about a year ago, starting as an 1100s player. Just recently hit a new peak of 1985 (SS OU) and looking to bring this into bigger Smogon Tours, specifically OLT. I'm pretty devoted to the game at this point, just looking for someone to help take me to that next level.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing pokemon competitively around Sept 2020 in one of the biggest french teamtour. Since then I tried to in as much tournament as I can, on smogon or on different communities in order to have at least 2 tournament games to play per week to keep improving. Besides this, I ask everyday big french players/big smogon players to play sum friendlies bc it's a good way to step-up Imo. I'm super motivated to reach my objectives : be a recognized player both in the french community and in the smogon community.

I started around February last year in ou and began to properly get the hang of it around June 2020, from there I played ladder around 15-1600 until about end of January this year where I peaked 1900s, but have fell down from there and have been stuck around 1500s, looking to improve.

My name is Skeptcal Dingo, but people call me SD. 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 early this year. In jamvads academy I was drafted to a PL. i managed to win all my 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.

I started Pokemon Showdown! like four-five months ago, this is my first generation playing. I'm usually hanging around 1300-1500 (im not that good yet). I know quite a bit about teambuilding, and I understand the metagame pretty well. I never entered a OU tournament yet, but I hope to become a much better Pokemon player, eventually.

I started playing competitive pokemon around 4 years ago and I leaned more towards Doubles OU which is my favorite tier and the main one I tutor for it, since I left ou and I have some knowledge about it. I have participated in OU Circuit Tours but have not done very well, which I would like to undertake and extend my knowledge with Turns and Builds to expand my repertoire of play and not just stay stuck in a single tier of play.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I really just wanna learn OU since I've just been in this spiral of OMs. About how much I know about the game, I play a lot of AG and have beaten great players like AGL and peaked top 30 in ladder (with 78 gxe heh but yeah). I'm kinda good at game sense but haven't played OU ever since Spectrier ban, which is why I wanna learn the format.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing singles in 2020. By then i did not know a thing about playstyle and function in this meta. So i started with my favorite meta: Monotype. I signed up for a tutoring in monotype Battle 101 and i made about 2 months of tutoring. I was 1400 before, and theni got into top 10 in the monotype ladder. I wanted to try standart ladder, so i tried RU first, and now i wanna try OU

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Ive played competitively since 2015, I think of myself as a pretty competent player and have played in many seasonals to varying degrees of success. I have never been able to break this barrier of skill that I feel like I should have by this point in my playing "career" and feel like some outside advice from a knowledgeable player would be beneficial. I think I struggle a lot with team building and also trying to play more creatively

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started on pokemon 3 years ago (almost 4 i think), when my cousin introduced me on Pokemon Showdown, then i played it for fun until 1 year ago...
Then i slowly started to get into competitive pokemon, VGC tours specifically, while at the start i was pretty bad on Pokemon, i started getting a little better and a little better, so then i eventually started to get into tours, while i'm not a good player by any means, i had some achievements such as won vs Juno and Sagisolar on a NatDex UU Tour in g3. Then i got drafted by 4k on a French teamtour (my team won btw) and now i got recently drafted on a french teamtour by 11k (surprisingly :0). I still feel that i'm not a good player by any means and if anything, i'm a bad player (I prob think so because i have a really low self-esteem).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing around September of 2020 when I saw my brother watching pokeaimmd and I wanted to play because it looked very fun and I had never seen this browser Pokémon game. I have been playing ever since, I have only really played ou, but I have played quite a bit of random battles as well. I know all the basics of Pokémon but I am not very good and I am not making much progress, I have peaked at around 1300 in the time I have played. I am just looking to get better at the game and at team building; and I think this is the best way to get better. I am mainly looking to get better in general such as
decision making and things like that and fundamentals of team building. The main reason though is because I am plateauing and can't seem to get better. I am also a relatively fast learner.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing in 2011, but got away from the game halfway through 2013 and didn't resume playing until late spring/early summer last year. I'm an okay player, albeit an inconsistent one, and I feel that I've plateaued and would like to take the next step. My main tiers are ZU and LC, and I dabble in 1v1 occasionally (~1300 ELO in each). I also played PU before DLC2, but haven't returned since the tier shifts, for some reason (probably because I'd like to preserve my 1500 ELO in that tier). I primarily play HO and I feel my biggest areas for improvement are teambuilding and being too aggressive (overpredicting, double-switching too much, going for sweeps too early, etc.) I'd like to learn the OU tier, since it's the preeminent PS! tier, as well as improve upon these things in order to go from being a decent player to a legitimately good player.

I started playing competitively about 4-5 months ago. I used to be a doubles player, until I realized that singles is a lot more fun (for me). Then I spam Hyper Offense teams on low ladder, I was stuck at around 1200 elo until I used samples and actually pass through. Now I build balance teams and know all the basics. The reason I'm joining B101 is because I am mediocre at teambuilding, and when its in the actual battle I'm bad at prediction and making the right plays. My ultimate goal is to join official tournaments and maybe win one.

Ive played mons since red, blue, didnt really start playing “competitively until the end of SM. Ive always had a passion for playing, but got a late start. I understand the basics, and a bit about strategy, looking to take the next step and be able to hold my own on the ladder. I know i dont have the 15 posts done, honestly the forum is a bit confusing, and im not sure i have anything of value to add to whats already on here, i hope to become more active as my skill/ knowledge improves, so hopefully i will not be disqualified because of this.

I'm very interested in SS OU. I'm quite a newbie and I started playing competitive just this Gen.
I started by playing BSS and VGC on cart, then I "upgrade" to play on Pokemon Showdown. Lately I started playing OU, and I'm having a blast. My elo usually is mid 1400.
I would love to have as tutor Niko or Quaze since they are Italian. If they can't is not a problem having another Tutor.
