    Is it possible for me to claim 'Item Locations' in BW. It wouldn't take too long since I already made a thread about it in the 'uncharted forum'.

    What exactly must be included in the Tips and Tricks?
    Because I claim it, since the 1v1 Guide will be delayed till after the metagame is well defined and stuff, so I can do this in the meanwhile

    well you could always look at the other tips and tricks articles for an idea of what's requested here's the fourth gen one http://www.smogon.com/ingame/misc/dpp_tips
    and third gen: http://www.smogon.com/ingame/misc/adv_tips

    for BW maybe stuff like pokeshifter, an explanation of dreamworld and the C-Gear (not to sure if this may be a separate article but it wouldn't hurt to mention it), locations of the IV man and other useful NPCs for example would be good places to start.

    Throwing out an idea, how about a formal guide to the Dream World and the minigames there?

    What about:
    - An in-depth Battle Subway guide
    - A Dream World guide
    - A guide for Sazanami Bay(dont know if it is possible, but that maze is SOO hard to do without a guide. I know there are some guides for it already, but they are not very well written)

    A full guide for the Battle Subway. We definitely need that, if we dont have one already.

    Why does Sazanami bay need a guide?

    Ask this question honestly.

    Did you get all the Plates/valuable items WITHOUT a guide?

    Suggestion for an article.

    In-game tiers? As in, which Pokemon are most viable for an in-game run, with a high tier/middle tier/low tier/bottom tier.

    you could look on the forum, there's a thread about it, but its not very in-depth.
    Someone could make a list like that, and give good arguments

    To be honest, a C-Gear article would be very helpful. I dont mean to sound lazy but i have never made an article before so maybe one of the more expirienced Members could write it? By the way, how do you play 5th Generation, is it onn Pokemon Lab? I am pretty confused :(

    The B/W Tips and tricks will have a C-Gear Information section in it.

    About Gen 5, you should use Pokémon Online and go to the Smogon Server.

    Not that a site like Smogon really needs it, but what about a "where to catch" guide for gen 5?

    I think I might reserve the DW guide, but I have 2 questions.

    1. How long do I have? I'm a bit busy :/
    2. From what point of view should I write it? Competive, In-game, or a mix?

    A mix and it should cover all the important parts of DW.
