    I have a few tips on how to make world maps:
    1) Don't make them big. Bigger maps = more "empty" space, which you'd want to avoid.
    2) Most tiles in the overworld tileset are green. Trees, grass, tall grass. You'd like your maps more colorful, and there is no "colorful" without the color red. Most flowers are red - you can go a little overboard with them.
    3) Don't use the "Rectangle" tool for trees, tall grass & flowers.
    4) If you're building a town/city, make sure that the houses aren't too far apart from each other. You can add some houses without doors, or with locked doors, just to make the town/city appear bigger.
    5) Trees aren't used for borders only, and there are a lot of different trees.
    6) A few boulders (Not the ones that can be moved by strength) here and there will change a lot.
    7) Look at maps by other game makers, or maps from the real Pokemon games. It helps.

    Well, I hope this helps...
