motion estimation, but on which plane?

Dear All,
I'm writing my very first amateur video encoder. Right now I have
finished the intra coding stage. The next step is motion
estimation.Should I do the search on Luma or the sub sampled Chroma
(4:2:0). Which one is better. Can I predict the motion of Luma by
searching the subsampled chroma?
Please Help. BTW, I cannot find any good explanation of telescopic
motion estimation. Don't tell me to google it, did that many times.
Thanks
