If you think you are qualified to be a tutor, please PM Plus, IronBullet, Jio, and Shiba with the following application as to why you would be a good fit. If you were previously a tutor on Smogon, you must still PM us, though we will most likely grandfather you in.
Username:
Timezone:
Regular Online Hours (in EST):
References (Please include proof):
Tier(s):
Accomplishments in the respective tier (tournament, ladder, or voting success):
This is an opportunity for anyone looking to share their wealth of experience and knowledge of competitive Pokemon to become recognized contributors to Smogon. We are looking for members who are able to teach new and inexperienced players. Individuals looking to be a tutor should be proficient in all of the metagames they apply for. Battling 101 is one of the most important parts of the site because it molds an upcoming generation of players. Being a tutor requires patience and dedication to help their apprentices learn. Tutors that have proven to fulfill their duties with regularity will earn a badge and be upgraded to community member status.

Common sense things to note regarding filling this template out:
  • Please don't use joeschmoe123 as a reference and please don't use a user who doesn't play Pokemon as a reference. Use some well-respected players in tournaments or ladders or the metagame forums. We also require mandatory references for certain tiers, as listed in this post.

  • We don't ask for much with accomplishments, but we would prefer to see some participation in official Smogon tournaments (OST, SPL, Frontier, Tour, Grand Slam, WCOP, OLT) and moderate success in these. As far as ladders go, shoot for top 5 or at least top 10 in OU.

  • If you don't see your tier / metagame in the following list, WE AREN'T DOING IT. No RBY LC, no randbats, no 1v1s, no Lv. 47 Orange-Pokemon-only ADV. We'll add tiers and metagames as we see fit or when leaders of specific metagames would like to contact us about it.

  • Please do something on Smogon before applying. Whether this is playing in tournaments or posting in metagame forums or rating teams, do something on the forums first. Forum integration is part of our evaluation rubric and if you're not familiar with the forums, then it's best not to apply.
Once you have been accepted, we'll give you access to the tutor forum and add your profile to our records. Good luck to all who apply!
