Has someone found the Black and White Save Structure yet? What bytes represent the player coordinates, the party, empty bytes,...?

Here's such a segment:
Surf: 53 53 48 00 00 00 0A 00 02 5F 64 0F 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 01 00 00 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
I am not sure whether or not a move starts with 53 53, but it seems like a trend, and I'm just using it as a starting point to centre all my records around. I've also recorded Psychic, Waterfall, Earthquake, Discharge, Flamethrower, and Cut in this way. I am positive of certain bytes that contain type, effect, power, accuracy, and pp.
The trouble is that I'm new to this business, and don't understand how to improve my efficiency. Hopefully this is a shoutout to everybody that's working on the same thing or has a better understanding of this than I do.
Btw, the attack info is stored at a/0/2/1. This is not completely my work, I didn't know where the attacks were stored until I found out on a certain post after scouring random forums.
I did a little research on Surf (even though my hex editor couldn't find it in a/0/2/1):
Surf: 53 53 48 00 00 00 0A 00 02
5F 64 0F
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 01 00 00
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
All parts I found are highlighted in red.
5F in decimal is 95, Surf's base power.
64 in decimal is 100, Surf's accuracy.
0F in decimal is 15, Surf's PP.
I'm not sure about '04' but if I'm right, it represents the type of the move.
EDIT2: By the way, if I'm right, then moves end with 5353, they don't start with it.
