Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing competitively in 2013 and mainly play PU and even tutor the tier in my free time. Outside of Pokemon, I'm currently a college student majoring in Financial Mathematics. I dabbled a bit in VGC 2017 since the meta looked interesting and my friend was really into playing the tier and convinced me to try it myself. I don't know much about VGC as a whole and it looked like a good way to change it up from the singles play I've been doing for so long.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started my competitive pokemon journey since BW2. I played Dream World OU on Pokemon Online with my favorite pokemon genesect. I left the game for about one year and I came back playing ubers in ORAS and reached #1 on the ladder (1800+ elo) with a standard offense team. I picked up OU in middle of SM and I built a successful team which helped me to reach 2011 elo. I bought a 3DS recently but I'm not familiar with the VGC tier and doubles metagame. I think this metagame is quite hard to get started compared to single formats. So I want to start learning from basic skills and knowledge.

both
Do you understand how the blacklist works?:
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).

ATTENTION: VGC tutoring has been discontinued for the foreseeable future, and this thread will only accept BSS applications from now on. Jio will try his best to accommodate everyone here who has signed up for VGC but hasn't been paired yet as long as you aren't dead on the forums. No promises though, as he is currently our only VGC tutor and has a life on top of that.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but I can't provide resources for things that don't exist atm.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing super casually around BW, I found out I was shit but was able to cheese my way into top 10 of ubers at one point. It was a weak format at the time, and wasnt representative of my skill level, I was unable to break into any significant ladder rank on OU. Didnt really play much outside of random casual amounts in other gens (aside from a brief spurt in ORAS). I got back into pokemon after getting a 2ds and a friend of mine told me about BSS. I made a couple of competitive mons but then realized I could just play this on Showdown instead. Played the BSS format briefly then got back into OU, and became a pretty decent player (chillin in the 18XXs in elo). Now that its summer and I have more time, Id like to relearn BSS the right way. Whoever picks me up will get a talented student who is ready to learn and willing to make mistakes and improve on them. I also love teambuilding more than playing, and would love to get better and theorycraft with my mentor!
