Well, I am a noob when it comes to pokemon. I just picked up Platinum and SoulSilver for the DS and I plan on playing through Platinum first. Anyways, I am completely new to the games themselves, so please if anyone wishes to share any advice that would be awesome. As for knowing about Pokemon, I remember when I was a kid they came out, of course now I am near 30 and just now joining the poke revolution. :D I hope to get to know some of you on here...and if I can get my wi-fi working right (which I have but for some reason my DS won't sink with it properly) I would love to do some non-competitive games once I get a good collection of course. :)

Almost forgot, I realized after looking online there is a plethora of guides and "advice"...are there any I should mark as vital and important? Sorry but there are so many I don't know which ones are decent.

i can't give you any info on platinum, but ive beaten soulsiver once, working on #2, dual type challenge,(should really make a thread 4 that), fire and fighting. hopefully you chose chimchar in platinum, for ss, if you havnt started, i recommend cyndaquil, my 1st one from my 1st playthrough was invinsible untill gym 4. but in the rematch i won, only trouble from there was gym 8, needed gyrados there. if possible, get a male ralts in platinum and trade to ss, while holding dawn stone. it will kill all team rocket outside of executive archer, the scientist with ditto in mahogany base, their magnimites in 1 hit.
