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

Current Tutors:
Icemaster
IoSonoNeon
Lasen
Staxi
steelskitty


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.

Usual Hours of Availability: weekdays 8 PM - 12 AM, weekends 12 PM - 12 AM
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).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been involved in several other lower tier tournaments, mainly PU-related (I'm a PU tutor and a PUWC manager) as well as provided insight on forum implementation for said tiers. However Ubers is the one lower tier I never tried to tackle due to the sheer complexity and overall incredible grasp on meta knowledge needed to learn such a tier. I've never played a single game of Gen 8 Ubers, but I know how to play.
Are you able to use Discord?: Discord name is BagofTrixx#4880 --- Feel free to add me, as I'm always on.
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: Of course.

Playing in a couple team tours such as blt, omfl and agpl, tho i havent really felt like any om/ag is fun atm.

Recently I reached 6th round in Ubers Seasonal, and I want to become better at Pokemon overall.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):I've been playing Pokémon since last March (so for a year). My main performance is to have made the play off of the ult seed 2 where I was out r1. On the French scene I'm doing pretty decent results, currently 4-1 where I beat known players like KyogreF4N. I'm also doing the ghosting tour where I'm the starter of my team currently in 1-0 doing next to the Chinese UPL currently in 1-1. I'm motivated to be tute, I hope to learn new things and aim for a UPL title in SS Ubers.

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

I have been playing pokemon showdown since June 2020 (9 months). So far, I haven't participated in any big tournaments in this tier. However, I have managed to be first in the ladder many times, I am still in the top 100, and I have already beaten several big players (like Icemaster, even if only in the ladder). What I would like is to learn new things to improve myself and be able to perform well in future tournaments.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I mainly played AG for most of my competitive career, starting from unviable teams in Gen 7 AG, to making a relatively successful team in Gen 8 NatDex AG. I also sometimes play Galar AG as well. Though inexperienced, I have obtained midladder in multiple other tiers such as National Dex OU and Galar OU, but I have had not any tournament success. (The one tournament I did enter, I lost to a relatively experienced NatDex AG player.)
