    Hi. While it's wonderful that you want to be a tutor for us, there are three prerequisites that we want all the tutors to be able to fulfill: Firstly, you have to know what you're doing. You don't have to be amazing, just good enough to be able to pass on knowledge. Secondly, we want to be able to know you'll be a good tutor. We want to know if you'll be able to take people's misunderstandings and show them the right way without degrading them or insulting them or anything (not saying you would, but... it's always a possibility). Lastly we want tutors to be active. I don't think I've ever seen you active in S&M, CBC, or just the PO server. If you want to tutor, that's great and awesome but we need you to prove that you can fill these three criterion before you can be accepted.
    firstly I do no what I am doing I was a total novice a month ago (you may have seen some post here by me) but I have spent the last month on PO and I would be happy to demonstrate that you any time
    secondly, well i have never been a tutor before I am just looking for a project to do over the holidays. so i guess there is only one way to find out if i will be helpful or not.
    lastly I am not active on the competitive battle forum here because i use smogon forum for that sort of thing. (I use this forum for rom hacking just noticed the banner and decided to check it out) and as for the PO sever i use the tree house server, i used to use the PC server but there was never any one on.

    Sorry about the short post earlier, if you have any more questions please feel free...

      Try using a different username. Sometimes you might use one that's already registered and if you type in the wrong password it disconnects you.
      Thank you so much, i will try. =)

        Is there anything we need to know about your schedule: I'm on Holiday, so I'm free whenever!

          PC Pokémon Online Server Username:WishCookie

          Timezone: Sweden GMT +1

          What do you feel you need to work on the most? I think i need to work pertty much at stats, abillities and nature. I think i need to work on my teams attack combination as well, i also need to train much at Ev and Iv training.


          Is there anything we need to know about your schedule (like when you work, for example)?
          I'm on holiday, i'm free in three months. So I will be active every day. But i will also be active after the holiday because i got alot of freetime but after the summer i'm going to school from 8:30 to 15:40 and after that i'm all free. I will do my best to be a good student and succeé. =)

          thanks everyone for signing up! i will most likely decide on a date for the first class soon, and will probably close the sign ups for the one-on-one tutoring soon if we have enough tutors.

          i decided that if the members who can't use pokemon online, and use pc's irc, they can still join if we have enough tutors that can teach there. that's only for the one-on-one tutoring though, and not the classes (like vrai said, the log will be posted, but you won't be able to experience it).

            Nope, I've never seen a post by you. Demonstrations would be effective and probably necessary. ;x We're still unsure of how long this will last so honestly I dunno if it will be just "over the holidays" or longer than that or what. Also we still would appreciate activity in the forums and on the PO server from our tutors. At least that way we can get a sense of regularity and how often they're online, what they're like, etc. It'd be fantastic if you'd get more active here before you become a tutor, should you want to.

              Hey all.
              Posted this in Vrai's blog, thought I would do it again just in case. You know, for efficiency's sake.

              What would be the best timeframe for you to be able to get online?

              -I'm free of all external distraction between 11pm - 2:30am EST any night, every night.
              -If not, than weekdays from 5:30pm - 7:30pm EST.
              -And if all that doesn't fly, than weekends at 12:30pm - 2:30pm EST. will also work for me.

              Have you ever battled competitively before? (Not like a casual match with your friends - this means using things like EVs and breeding for Hidden Powers, or battling online with a simulator like Pokémon Online)

              -Yes. Very much so. The inner workings of strategy and hidden variables of each Pokemon is what peaked my interest in competitive battling, and thus, led me here. ;3

              If you have, can you categorize what you struggle most with? (things like predicting, team building, dealing with opposing threats, etc.) If not, that's alright too.. this question is just so we can better identify what we need to focus on.

              -Team building, team synergy, identifying and applying team roles, prediction and analysis, and whatever you guys are willing to teach.

                Fine I will start using this instead of smgon, and as for the PO server what sort of numbers are you getting on there at the moment i use treehouse witch has a constant 20 people on it most of the time..? last time i checked PC server was lucky to have 3 people on at one time.

                Well it's 2:30 AM EST and there is still 9 of us online actively talking, so that's a decent testament. There was ~15 of us online earlier today (At a decent hour XD).

                              What aspect of competitive battling are you best at? Idk, I've gotten pretty good at predictiona and synergy.
                              Is there anything we need to know about your schedule (like when you work, for example)? In three days I'm going to taiwan for three weeks; I should have internet access for the latter two weeks. I might be able to get on the first week too if I'm lucky.

                              Otherwise, I'm available the whole time.

                                I can sign up for a tutor if you guys are running short of people.

                                What aspect of competitive battling are you best at? I think I'm good at the psychological aspect of the game.
                                Is there anything we need to know about your schedule (like when you work, for example)? Not really, I'm free pretty much whenever.

                                  Sure.

                                  It depends on when you're coming on. Afternoon in USA is probably your best bet for activity - lately we've been hitting upwards of twelve, fourteen people. Remember, we're doing this for activity, because we want more people interested and online. If you don't want to give effort towards making an inactive server more active then that's fine, we're not forcing you to do anything. I'm just saying this isn't something we want someone to just kinda decide to do - we want to make sure you're going to show up, give effort, and try to help our community. Most of the people who have already signed up to tutor are consistently active on the server (and to some extent generally give helpful advice on the forums, though we do wish they would do it more!).

                                  Not that we don't want you to help, it'd just be nice if you proved your willingness to do so first.

                                    You need to specify what you're signing up for; either Tutor or Student. Then you need to fill out the form that goes with your chosen class.

                                      I haven't had a proper battle since before 5th gen was released, I kinda lost my batting spirit and then I just really couldn't be bothered battling 5th gen at all.
                                      It would be great to have some one help me understand more about it so I can can back into battling B-)
                                      I'm available most of the time just now because it's summer.

                                        I thought you only had to fill out a form if you wanted one-on-one tuition or you wanted to be a tutor? Do you have to fill out a form for classes too?
