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

THE RULES

  • You must be able to access Skype, 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, 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.
  • You may request priority if you were skipped previously in 2016. Link your sign-up post from last year by going to the B101 Archive located in Thread Cryonics underneath Closed Forums.
  • If your timezone and hours of availability do not match up with the correct thread, your post will be deleted. 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.

  • NEW: 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.
Any iteration of Ubers/OU/UU/RU/NU/PU/DOU/LC from any of the past generations.
Any iteration of Battle Spot / VGC formats.


Here is the signup template, and an example sign-up post.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in 2007 and decided to join Smogon to get better. Since then, I've played in tournaments like WCOP 2009 and SPL 1 way back in the day. Admittedly I've had less time to burn on Pokemon since then, but I still have fair knowledge in OU / UU / NU for all generations from DPP onwards.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: Yes
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 have been playing competitively since 2014 trying different tiers but never got the hang of LC. Tried lc again in late ORAS and it was quite fun and now with sun moon adding some more lc pokemon want to learn the tier from an expert.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Regular user on showdown, member of smogon since 2015. Got a good base in competitive playing, knowledge in ORAS metas and also SunMoon metas, but never handled the Little Cup, because it's different. From monotype and french community, I pretty much can play every tier so I don't think tutoring me will be a big deal
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: both of them

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve been playing competitively on showdown since the summer of 2014. Since joining I’ve laddered, and ask for advised. I’ve always found myself to be weak of team building. The RMT room and RMT forum sections have always been a help. I finally at the end of the ORAS OU metagame I was able to break 1600 which I’m super happy about. Over my yeah and a half at Smogon I’ve played users, Anything goes (which my favourite tier by far), LC, Ru, UU(2nd fav tier) and some Monotype. With the release of SuMo on showdown, I instantly dove right into Anything goes, as well as Ou. I’ve recently gotten into Ubers and Lc again. I hope with the help of battle 101 I can improve my team building skills and learn the new SM LC meta.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Have played mons on and off for a real long time, (used to play RSE on Netbattle in my squeaker days). Now I want to commit playing mons past what I have been doing as of late (creating random HO/Offense teams in OU and mindlessly laddering while studying.) I have some decent knowledge on tactical concepts of mons (switching, doubling, predictions, trying to determine a win con at preview etc), but trying to advance my game knowledge, teambuilding, and application of these concepts.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing Pokemon since BW, but took a break throughout most of XY. I came back during the middle of ORAS and picked up LC near the end of it. I became active as an analysis writer with the start of SM, but have always been unable to build good teams that are not gimmicks or 'memes' as you may have noticed during my Battle of the Week, where I only brought weather based teams.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I pretty much only play SM LC and have a ton of self-built teams however whilst I feel my teambuilding is somewhat decent I feel like I have alot of areas i need to improve in. Mostly in my playstyle, ability and varying my cores / strategies more. I enter quite alot of Smogon Tournaments but nowadays only sign-up for LC tours. Also enter tournaments in the Tours room on PS often.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I mainly play SM OU, and also played ORAS but wasn't too good at it.
