Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started competitive play around gen 4, just mostly laddering and making silly teams. I played a lot more during ORAS and got tutored in NU last year, which I really enjoyed and learned a lot. With gen 7 introducing a whole new metagame, I would like to have someone help show me the ropes again (otherwise I'll probably make the same mistake without noticing them lol).
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: I can use skype, but I can probably learn how to use Discord if needed.
Do you understand how the blacklist works?: Yes

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started play Pokemon when BW2 was dieing and XY was borning. I started with the VGC, and I tried other Nintendo's Metagames like Battle spot single and rotation. I lost interesting in VGC because I have not the opportunity to do live competition, and slowly, I started to be interested in OU. So I started playing OU in ORAS era, but I sucked a lot, and so I asked to a friend of mine to help me but he was not useful, he just told me to play ladder a lot, but unfortunately I have no time to playing so much in ladder. Plus I tried for weeks and I did not improve anything. I had stuff to do in this months, but now, with the new metagame I wanna my chance. I know how double switches work, I know the basics of the game but there's something wrong in my playstyle and I want to improve myself. I play very slow because I can't think quickly about the pros and cons of every move and I have problems to think about a good game plan. I hope I'll be picked in this round, and I'll hope my tutor won't be like my friend (I'm joking).

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing pokemon back in gen 1, took a big break from the game. Played some gen 6 OU in 2014/5 and have played some SU/MO OU. I always play gen 1 ou/gen 1 random when I am bored. I really am looking to learn how gen 7 OU works and am motivated to improve my game.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Started playing competitively late ORAS with OU / Ubers. Played a fair few amount of games while touching up my general knowledge in the respective rooms. Started playing Battle Spot Singles not too long after SM was released. Voice in OU for a few months now, though quite out of touch with the metagame so I want to relearn and refine my knowledge.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Currently am an OU voice so I am knowledgeable on what's viable in the OU tier and what general strats work. This however does not translate to my battling skills. I can barely reach past a pitiful 1600 on the ladder and I have been wanting to improve for a long while. I am requesting user False as my tutor.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been playing Pokemon competitively since D/P/P, but have taken a serious interest in the UU/RU/NU metagame since 5th gen. Currently I'm looking to get a better understanding of the S/M OU Metagame, in particular with advice to team building, making better predictions, and finding optimal EV spreads. My threshold for the ELO is typically around 1400 on the ladder, so I'd like to improve that.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): My main and favorable area of competitive Pokemon is Little Cup although I wouldn't say I'm good at it yet as I'd still acknowledge myself as a intermediate user or around that level of expertise. I'm also getting into Old Gens, mostly the battling aspect but I usually play ADV OU more than the other old gens tier, but I'm still not as good at that either. I've been playing a little of ORAS OU before SM came out and now with SM out I usually play a little SM OU as well, but I'm not that experienced yet.

Experience: Ladder player introduced to competitive with SuMo, have since played a bunch of matches and come on here to learn how to git gud. Peak was bottom of top 500 (low 1600) a few weeks prior to Phero suspect, been struggling to make a team that works for me since. I want to be able to compete at a higher level and better understand team building. At this point I think I've played about 1000 games or so on PS! SuMo OU.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): It's been a while since I started in competitive Pokémon, I've been playing since 2006. I joined Smogon in 2007 and enjoyed of some recognition a couple years, but some things happened here and there and I was enforced to delete my account in 2011, I had to retire for a while. Two years later I decided to come back into the competitive Pokémon, so I started again in 2013 with a new nickname. During the last couple years I've tried to improve my skills and mastering all tiers, and I managed to stand out in some tournaments, but this time I feel I'm choking a lot for learn to play this new OU metagame.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started competitive play around gen 6, just mostly laddering and making my way up the ladder. I played a lot more during ORAS, and it took a while to get the hang of the meta game I really enjoyed. I honestly would like to get a better grasp of the game and not play turn by turn which is one of my biggest problems along with making questionable plays early on.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been playing for a while now. I played OMs mostly, got somewhere with monotype, so started to expand to things like UU, RU, and NU. Never could get the hang of OU so deciding to get a tutor. I am familiar with the general tier, but need a jumpstart.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been playing competitive Pokemon since Mid-XY. Played all the previous gen OUs but got serious during the middle of ORAS and played a fair bit of Ubers, NU, UU, and OU at the end. At the start of Gen 7, i decided to make Ubers my main since i enjoy playing the tier a lot. However, I've been struggling a bit when playing SM OU (Though I've written a few analysis for the tier but its a bit hard for me to get a grasp of the metagame practically) however, I'm fine with theorising and stuff but how much is that worth if i can't make the proper decisions during a game am I right?

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started out playing ORAS battlespot singles but didn't enjoy it that much. I then discovered ORAS OU towards the end of its run and was hooked on competitive battling. Since then I've played SM OU prebank and now SM OU while improving myself slightly over time. I think I can teambuild okay but my actual battling needs work.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): First started playing Pokemon when I was around 8, and I first got into competitive play during the BW era. I really enjoyed BW, never played too often but mostly among friends. ORAS was a lot less exciting for me, and I stopped playing during those couple of years, but SM has peaked my interest again. Despite all the time I've been interested, I have lots of trouble getting past 1400s on the ladder and would love some more guidance and direction to get better.
