This question applies more to those who are inexperienced in regards to competitive battling, and who would like to enter the competitive realm (which is a lot of fun!)

This is in no way an official tutoring thing, however, it's somewhat of a mini version so we can get a few of you up and running with a better understanding in competitive so you can enjoy what this forum/community has to offer even more so. Please reply here if you're interested in learning, or either helping some people in a specific tier. For interest, I have NU covered, however there's many other tiers that there aren't really any experts in, so to say, so if there's a tier in specific that you know a lot about, feel free to reply. As for everyone else, if you don't specify a tier in your post, I'll just help you guys get a better feel of NU. :)
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

I'll be willing to help people with UU, only casually though.

As for qualifications or reasons why I should, I've got a fair amount of experience in it and I've made the top 10 of Smogon's UU ladder multiple times in the past.

I'm definelty interested in learning more about comp battling, I want to be a better battler so that's my reason. I encourage all who also want to learn more, it's going to be worth it and you'll see how it'll benefit you as a battler too.

Wonderful Thread btw Nica.

I'm willing to learn UU as well as NU and RU! But I firmly believe that the best way to learn is to experiment a bit with teams, and see where it goes from there. :3 /working on an NU team and then a UU team afterwards

I need this because I'm still new to competitive battling, I want to start with the basics and then eventually branch out into the lesser-used tiers.

I want to learn all tiers so I can see every Pokemon's strategies!

I used to play UU somewhat decently, but I've since dropped off the face of the Earth in terms of playing competitive Pokemon (I haven't battled in any way, shape or form since December 2012, and I haven't played UU since October 2012). As such, I would really appreciate being retaught the arts of UU.

I'm interested in learning OU, UU and NU. I could also teach some of my untested strategies.

I'd love to learn more about all aspects (aside from ubers) but specifically UU, NU and OU! Although to narrow that down further I'd most want to be taught NU as I'm pretty sure that's the one I'm worst at! XD

I'm so so so so so interested, but I'd never found someone who is VERY patient because I don't understand any of it. Not these tiers or anything. Like, I try to EV train or whatever once and I think I did it right but... it's all just complicated for me. Or I'm making it more complicated than it needs to be.

Anyways just posting to say there seems to be a lot of interest in UU so I may post a discussion thread on it. I'll offer my humble expertise and perhaps everyone can just help each other. I assure this, this is probably the best BW metagame in terms of strategy/creativity.

Anyway I'll probably do it once I got a solid placing on the Smogon ladder, then I'll feel comfortable giving advice.

I'm definitely interested! I've been interested in competitive battling for a long time but I don't know where to start... I know there are lots of resources, this forum included, but it just overwhelms me when I try to start researching. @_@

Let the storm rage on....
The cold never bothered me anyway.

I'm on the fence with this. Recently I've been wanting to really get back into competitive battling - I was all about it in gen IV and did clans, tourneys, all of that. I never even attempted to get into gen V though so I feel pretty behind on it.

The only usable competitive team I have made is a Rain one and it's pretty good, but I would really like to learn more.

It's funny you make this thread, because I actually just finished building my competitive team! I got interested in competitive battling, and thought to make my own "super team!" I decided to begin in the OU tier (because I wanna be able to start with a team that could compete with the best), got some advice, did some research, and now my non-legend competitive team is completed! *look below Trainer Card is my team* Now I just have to finish EV training
