So I've been looking at two similarly priced mobos (In my country at least) and I've been wanting to know the pros of a b550m mobo instead of a b450m

I'll be pairing a r5 3600 with which ever mobo I choose and I want to slightly overclock it. I'll also mostly be playing games on it.

The two mobos I was looking at were the asrock b450m pro4 f and the b550m mortar

The main pros of B550 include PCIe 4.0 for graphics card and SSD, support 2.5G of Lan speed and WIFI 6. But frankly speaking, these improvement doesn't have much effect on actual performance and practicality. I prefer to B450m. But if the price is almost the same, B550m will be a better choice.

Maybe in this new graphic cards generation it worths. REmember the better performance in the 8gb radeons on pcie 4.0

The only sticking point with B450 boards are they may not be compatible with Zen 2 processors out of the box. So unless you're willing to deal with that, get a B550 for out-of-the-box compatibility.

B550 chipset motherboard is more future proof to the newest AMD CPU Architecture.
