Welcome to Battling 101! If you're seeking a tutor for SUMO UU, 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.

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).

My Experience in Pokemon: I've been playing on PS for at least a year and a half. I believe I'm currently a PU main, but with SuMo PU not coming out for a while I decided to learn SuMo UU as well. I also really like the current Meta. I've hosted threads in the PU forum, but with ORAS PU being over I'm finding myself having a bit more free time as well. Hopefully this can improve my team building and battling skills
I can use both Discord and Skype.
I Understand how the blacklist works.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing Showdown in early 2016, mainly played ORAS UU. Then SM came, and I switched to OU, because there was barely any resource, or even a clear meta, during early UU. Now that viability rankings, role compendium, etc are up, I would like to get back to UU. I've played some games in SM UU, around 70-80 games, mostly using sample teams with some little tweaks, and would love to learn more through tutoring.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Moderately experienced with competitive battling, love the teambuilding aspect of the game. Last gen my favorite tier was ORAS UU by far. I'm hoping to continue that trend and understand the new meta better, as well as advice for offensive and balanced comps.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): Ive been playing mons for a while and know a lot of people, but always think im better than I really am. I have a lack of understanding of advanced playing tactics that seem like common knowledge to the best players and could appreciate some help. But anyway my background started in OMs where i peaked Mix and Mega ladder for some time in gen6. After the release of gen7 i was pretty bad at mix and mega (lost to Quantum Tesseract 27 times in a row when he was using the same team during a series of testing battles) I then moved to maining anything goes where I wasn't great but I was alright. I have over 1.5 thousand gen7 anything goes battles between a lot of alts lol. after bad experiences with the community and roomstaff i eventually made it to NU where ive been for the last few months, but had the same problem of thinking I'm better than I am. I would like to try out UU because I had a lot of fun in the M-lati suspect and I also have some friends in the room (shoutout ilct).
