Welcome to Battling 101! If you're seeking a tutor for SV Monotype, 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

I play a lot of randbats *citation needed, i main tours plaza. started frmo the ground up a year ago off temp,wolfeyvgc, and freezai (for a while i didn't understand why incineroar was so low tiered cuz wolfey was always talkinga bout it). after figuring out that physical geomancy xerneas was not the way to go, i started playing and teambuilding for tp and gained experience in a lot of formats from it. i haven't played too much monotype, but i've dabbled and played in some mono tours.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon: I've played only randbats in my first year in Showdown with my name 'Drakuna' and peaked 1700 at one point. Randbats lost it's touch to me after a devestating elo drop in GEN 5 randbats of me going to 1600 and was dropped back to 1000 after a series of brutal loses. I now play mostly mono type as the challenges and strategic aspects of it intrigues me.

Tell us a little about your experience in competitive Pokemon (min. 3 sentences): I been playing Competitive Pokemon on and off for quite a while now, so much so I succeeded in getting top 100 on multiple ladders (different formats) and found ok-ish success in Smogon Tournaments. I am looking to advance my knowledge in both the teambuilder and in my battles. I also love to have fun and build silly teams whilst remaining viable but my ability as a teambuilder has significant room for improvement
