Welcome to Battling 101! If you're seeking a tutor for SV UU, you are in the right place. Please read all the rules carefully and fill out every part of the application.


RULES

  • You must be able to access 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, should have at least 15 posts before signing up AND your account's age should be a minimum of at least 1 month old before signing up.
    • This is not a strict requirement meaning you may still be paired without satisfying it, so no matter what, DO NOT spam post elsewhere in the forum. That is an infractable offense and we do not encourage such behavior from potential Tutees.
  • 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.
  • You, the tutee, are responsible for setting up times with your tutor. When you receive the Smogon notification informing you of the pairing, please take the initiative and post on their VM wall first. Continued scheduling and communication is key to a successful pairing!
  • 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.
  • Signups older than 4 months or 1 month since last login will be considered inactive. These will be moved to the Inactive Posts thread, and can be returned back to this thread by request.
  • Tutors can and will drop you if sessions go badly, and significant violations may result in a ban from B101. Be active, be enthusiastic, be respectful. Make the best of your time together!

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing competitively in early XY and spammed Baton Pass on the ladder. I was pretty skilled I guess. I then got more involved with Smogon and started to play in various tournaments like UUPL and later on Snake and SPL. I could use a bit more practice in this tier though, so I'm looking to get help

Usual Hours of Availability: I live in an unviable timezone but I'm usually available in the afternoons / evenings my time on weekdays (and saturdays) and almost all day on sundays
Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I've been playing competitive pokemon for over 2(?) years now. I used to ladder a LOT in sm mix and mega back in those days (but unfortunately it's been removed :sob:). I'm mostly an om (mnm being the primary one) main I suppose, and i enjoy similar formats like ndoms (nd nfe, nd aaa, etc). i have taken part in a lot of teamtours (ompl, tpp, otsl etc) and projects in the past so I think I'm at least decent. I'm bored and this tier seems fun so I thought of learning it.
Are you able to use Discord?: yep, zastra

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I started playing the UU/RU meta, finding the tiers to be more enjoyable and fun for playing, but I have interest on getting better. Slowly started to get immersed in the competitive world. I don't know much, besides the basics in Competitive Pokemon, barely 1 month, to be specific. I'm looking to get better in Pokemon Competitive in general.

Got back into competitive after a long break since XY/ORAS. Have the team building down somewhat, but feel my play is hindering my experience. Would like to be taught tips for battling and team-building.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I initially discovered PS to try out my teams that I made for Colosseum and I got really addicted. I started in the beginning of SS but got bored bc of the meta. I almost hit leaderboards and I want to get coaching so I can be the very best that ever was.
