Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started getting into competitive Pokemon during XY when I first started learning about EVs, IVs, natures, and egg moves (before that I was a more casual player and played HeartGold). I've participated in several online tournaments and I usually do really well. These tournaments are usually singles, but whenever a doubles tournament would show up I would enter and usually not do all that great. I just really want to understand double battles in general and how to build teams that would help me win in double battles.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been playing comp mons for almost a year now. I tried doubles ladder once and went like 20-0 but I heard the ladder is really bad that low. I mostly play old gens but doubles is a tier I think has really tricky team building and play so I think it would be cool to learn.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Came back a few months ago and started playing in tours to improve general battling skills with decent results. While singles formats can be universal to play, Doubles to me is like if I was going to a foreign country yet it interests me because of the unique dynamics you have with 2 on the field. Attentive to learn nd spar!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been apart of Mono leagues for a while now and am wanting to branch out. An old group I was a part of introduced me to DOU and I love the fast pace of the metagame. Most of my tricks that I've been wanting to try out in Singles work great in Doubles (TrickWind). I'm looking for a new challenge. I've taken part of this program before with Monotype.

Your timezone: EST (gmt -4) mainly, though I'm currently gmt+8 for two weeks.
Usual Hours of Availability: typically available in the evenings, but I'm very expendable to the tutor's schedule as well.
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been on PS since 2012, but I've only started getting serious on playing competitively just this past year. I primarily play Monotype, where I am currently participating in MPL IV, though I've also enjoyed picking up and playing NU, PU, and Ubers as of late. After successfully participating in the recent Gengarite suspect, I'd like to know more about Doubles, specifically IV spreads, as I feel it relates to the singles format in the sense that knowing how to optomize your pokemon's EV spread is just as important as how to use it.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have started to try to better understand competitive play doubles format. Hi I would like to learn how to be a better trainer! I played R/B/Y and G/S but nothing else until ORAS. After relearning a mew Pokemon I decided to take the competitive plunge and failed miserably. I attended a couple tournaments and decided I needed better teams and better understandings of the battles and details. Ive read a lot and still want more info! :)

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Gonna stick to this gen otherwise this would be too long. I've been playing NU primarily this generation, although I have dipped into UU as well. Peaked around 1565 points or so on NU ladder and got damn close to top 10. Also was an Ubers player at the veeeeery beginning of the generation, but don't recall doing anything noteworthy. Been playing as a whole since early BW and have never played doubles much.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: Both.

I have been playing main-series for about 5 years and have never lost a battle in o use either Discord or Skype? Sadly neither, how does that affect?

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
SPL RBY player. Played in DPL but sucked so I'm here to get back into DOU properly and now that Mega Gengar isn't here to make my life miserable I will probably enjoy myself a lot. Also I think the dubs community is full of nice people, and I think I have good instincts for the tier since I'm able to do decent while having pretty suboptimal general knowledge of things. I also need a tier to transition to for when the evil tour directors remove rby from the circuit

Discord yes, Skype no

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing "seriously" for about 6 months. I started with OU, bh and some other OMs. I think my greatest achievement is to have completed the suspect of DOU, I really loved that tier, so I want to improve in it.
