Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I discovered Showdown in late XY and I’ve been working to hone my battling skills since mid-ORAS. During ORAS I mostly gravitated towards Ubers, but now I find OU more enjoyable/diverse/balanced. About 90% of my Smogon experience has been lurking, but I feel like I’ve hit a plateau in my learning and haven’t really improved for a while, so I’ve decided to come out of the shadows for this tutoring program. I have a decent understanding of battling techniques in theory but have trouble applying them in practice. I don’t have a particularly good grasp on teambuilding yet; most of my teams are either inefficient at breaking down defensive cores or easily overwhelmed by offensive ones.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I am here because I want to get better, and there is a limit as to how far I can go on my own. I've been playing competitively since DPPT, but I didn't really start taking battling seriously until XY. I tend to hover around the 1500-1600 range on the ladder, and I feel this is due to picking poor leads and taking risks when it really isn't necessary. As far as teambuilding goes, I've only built about 2 teams on my own, so those skills are lacking. Additionally, I tend to stick to balanced and bulky offense teams, and have very little experience playing stall and HO. My knowledge of the metagame and its trends are generally solid.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing seriously competitive Pokémon since start 2013 with BW2.I played OU format a lot, VGC then and finally, in ORAS era, I discovered how funny was BS Single. Honestly I wasn't a good player, never reach 1600 points to make this clear, so, discouraged, I tried Ubers, enjoying the battling101 (it was 2015), and I got some result. With Sun and Moon I decided to try again BSS, but still I can't improve. I'm starting to think the game is not for me. But let's try with OU.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I have been playing competitive Pokémon for the past year, joining late ORAS, and have been playing a variety of tiers since. However, I still struggle to master several concepts, mostly due to my poor understanding of team synergy, my weakest point in team synergy in teambuilding, although I am skilled at predections between counters and 'mon sets. Although my expereince has been fun in the comptetitive meta games, there is still much for men to learn, and OU is the best place for me to start since it's my favourite tier next to challenge cup, as well as having a more competitive field than other tiers.

I've been playing since ORAS on ps, and got to 1400. It's my second time back for a tutor >.<, I'm doing okay right no for a bit since I got to 1698 and then dropped back to 1642.. on Sumo OU. I'd like to improve on some skills and learn to build my own teams to a certain extent so I can compete in tourney's and maybe peak OU ladder even if it's just one time.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I've been an on and off competitive player for a long while going back to gen 4, although at that time was never really into it and wasn't playing under Smogon. I really picked up laddering in the X/Y into OR/AS metas and enjoyed it but did not have the time to dedicate to it playing frequently due to studies and other commitments. Now I have much more time to work with I really want to get to grips with competitive SU/MO OU and improve my game in terms of playing but also being able to build properly at a high level. I am motivated and would really like to work on getting to a high skill bracket on the ladder and eventually try out some of the tournaments.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing on and off since about gen 4, but that was just local wireless with my siblings. I got into really laddering around gen 6 and learned a bit more about competitive battling and team building and pretty much self taught myself throughout the gen. With the release of gen 7, I was really excited and played quite a bit early game (Before the downloadable megastones started to come out) and I have not touched the games for a while after that.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I dabbled in competitive in early XY but i didnt really get into mons til SUMO. Since SUMO started i've been watching tour games and I've been laddering. I'd like to understand how players at such a high level reach that level. I wanna get better as a player and just be able to play more confidently.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I learned the basics of competitive Pokémon during Gen 5, since then I've been a casual player. In the last months, I got more and more interested in finally looking deeper into the subject and made myself familiar with the current metagame. I hope I can improve my battling skills through battling 101 and I would like to participate at tournaments in the future.
