Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing competitive on and off for a few years, but this year is when I actually started grinding it a lot. I've only focused on OU since it seems to be the most popular one and I'd love to compete in tournaments and other various activities. This year I finally hit above 1500 on the ladder, but I always seem to fall back mid-1400s and plateau from there until I hit 1500 again, and the cycle continues. My main weakness seems to be building teams, since I always find myself building ones with glaring weaknesses I can't ignore, and the team ends up being a mess. I do, however, understand the roles of most OU Pokemon well, in my opinion.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Well, I have been into Pokemon the last 3 years, but never knew about competitive since last year. Started playing in Pokemon Online, then came to Showdown but never truly learned anything significant. Last 6 months I have been playing a lot of OU and I feel comfortable about how I battle, but my teambuilding skills literally suck. My goal now is to learn how to teambuild, and hope that in the process I improve my battle skills too!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Played a lot of pokemon as a kid, just recently got back into it and found out about showdown a few months ago. I've played a good amount of games on showdown, exploring some different formats and settled mainly in OU and randbats. In OU I tend to play really inconsistently and is having trouble getting better, constantly fluctuating between 1300-1500. I've played in some different tourneys from chat rooms and a good amount of ladder games on different accounts but have not played in anything too competitive.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Ive been playing competitively since BW2 mainly in Ubers and OU and recently, CAP. I have some experience getting decently high on the OU ladder (1800~) but have never been able to do well in OU tournaments consistently. I've laddered for a few suspect tests and got reqs and done decently well in tournaments in other tiers so i like to think I'm ok at mons but am looking to improve to a much better level!

I started competitive Pokemon around a year ago after dabbling casually for a little while. I'm not a great player technically but my team building is horrid and I wind up using samples or teams I find from other people, so I'd like to focus on that.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing competitive pokemon for about a year or so, mainly in the battlespot 3v3 scene where I'm probably one of the better players in the scene atm. I'm looking to transfer into some smogon formats essentially because I want to transition into smogon tournament play as currently I can only play about 4 tours a year given my current skillset. I've played I guess about 50 games or so, so I do have a vague idea of how OU works.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences):
I first started playing competitively back in gen 6 ORAS and done a few online competitions like the 2016 International Challenge and Johto Classic. During that generation I also have participated in a series of tournaments by a group called Smunchy Games back in 2016, though they don't host Pokemon tournaments anymore and eventually I dropped competitive. I then came back to competitive and attended the 2019 DOU Winter Seasonal and lost but it did give me that fire to want to participate in more challenges here on Smogon in which case I'd like to learn more to get better.
Are you able to use either Discord or Skype?: Both works. I'm much more active on Discord.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Been playing competitively for 2 years and I'm mostly known as a UU player, so I'd like to get better at my second tier, OU. My playing ability is also not the greatest and neither is my teambuilding, so I'd like to improve on both of those. But mostly I'd like to learn the meta a little better and get better at the same time.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I began dabbling in 2014, but since 2018 I've been taking more effort in improving. Unfortunately, I seem unable to break my upper 1300-lower 1400 purgatory. Things I find myself lacking in are teambuilding (tho I take regular advantage of Trainer Academy, so it has less impact than other issues), predicting, and planning ahead

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I Have always been a fan of pokemon and pixelmon and I Have played pokemon since I Was 5 years old. I Have never really gotten in to the competitive side of things until 2 years ago isch. While some might rate me as a decent competitive battler on pixelmon I Am for sure not one of the best on Smogon and now when I Have gotten in to things more and started looking at resources a lot more lately, getting in to teambuilding with different cores etc I Have found it really fun. I Would really like a tutor because I Want to gain more experience in battling and I Would like to participate in the smogon tours and other tournaments further on. I Would also like to be one of the top players on Smogon which will be a tough journey and I Know that since many players got years of experience and are really good, but I`m ready to do what it takes. :)

I always loved the games since DPP but I never really played anything PvP related
Recently got into showdown through /r stunfisk and started out with randbats, started picking up OU since.
I really want to have a better understanding of the tier and learn from more experienced players
