Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve played Pokémon casually my entire life but fell off my senior of HS in 2014, last fall I bought USUM and the infatuation began all over again but this time I wanted to really enjoy battling and learned about VGC. Since then I’ve spent hours honing my game and refining my team. I’ve been to multiple PC’s and compete on PS all the time. I want to keep growing along with my team and do cut top 32 at next year at a Regional Tournament. I feel understanding and doing well in OU will help with that.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Basically, I joined PS! a while back, and I've been maining AG for a bit, as a metagame. I've hit 52-0 in said meta (low ladder is ass lmfao), and hit 1964 on ladder, and I'm pretty active in the room. I'm trying to get into OU, and I've been stealing teams from pastebins and shit like that, because I'm too damn lazy to build my own teams for OU, but I understand that team building is an important part of the metagame to learn. Either way, I'm looking forward to participating in this program, and thanks in advance!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing competitively mainly in the OU tier since early B/W. I am just now delving into the competitive scene for USUM now and am having a hard building decent teams and learning the niches of the newer pokemon in the viability rankings. I am not new to pokemon or competitive play what so ever so tutoring me would not be too difficult! Would love some help, so I can start competing in some Tournaments.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing mons for about 4 years and I have a good idea of general ideas about how to play and build (I hope) but I have almost no experience of OU this gen. The main metas I play are BH and past gens and ig I'm not terrible. Mainly looking for learning the meta rather than how to play.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I’ve played pokemon showdown since BW after being inspired by YouTubers like Joey, Blunder, emvee, etc. Since then I have tried to be a more competitive battler but I tend to fall short when it comes to team building and playing smart in the actual battle. I would greatly appreciate any help a tutor can offer, as my hours are somewhat felxible and I am enthusiastic about improving my skill in the game.

Format: SM OU
Timezone: GMT+8
Availability: Flexible, I usually do insane hours, so I can be amenable to most times.
Prior experience: I have only really dabbled around in OU in both SM and XYORAS, breaking off every so often here and there (and often returning, toting the same team I was using months back). I do enjoy reading competitive articles and watching videos, but putting some of the skills into action oftentimes is difficult, and I would single out my prediction to be one of my weakest areas. I think that the Apprentice Program will help me become confident enough to play a bit in tournaments (which I have wanted to for a while, but never had the courage to try).
Skype/Discord: Prefer Discord, but can learn Skype if need be.
Blacklist: I understand how this works.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I have been playing competitive Pokemon for many years now. I started at the tail end of Generation 4 in the HGSS days and was really excited when Black and White came out to finally start to really jump into competitive. I've been playing through pretty much every metagame since then and am experienced playing multiple tiers and metagames and have even participated, and done well in, local tournaments around my area. I have, however, found myself peaking at around 1300-1400 on the OU ladder. My favorite parts of Pokemon include not only playing the games, but teambuilding fun squads that can be competitively viable. Of course, my battling skills certainly need to improve, as most of the games I tend to lose on the ladder stem from mistakes that I can learn to avoid.

I started competitive battling in DPP OU on shoddy battle. I took a break and started again a couple months ago in USUM OU. I got to 1400 elo but I'm pretty stuck there. I was hoping for some help in identifying win conditions and just in general how to understand proper decisions in game. Thanks.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've played semi-seriously for about a year now. I've beaten many good tour players but my skill level (teambuilding in particular) is extremely haphazard, assymetrical and inconsistent, but I know and believe that LL can definitely bring me to an improvement towards reliability and just overall battle & teambuilding intelligence. I'm excited to see what will come out of this process and how hard he'll push and make me work outside of my comfort zone and usual tricks & trojan horses.

DoubleSwitches def picked up my game, but now I can sense it'll be LL to take me that step further.
