In particular, are there any restrictions between Pokémon Diamond/Pokémon Pearl and Pokémon SoulSilver/Pokémon HeartGold?



There are no trade restrictions between gen 4 games. I have traded from HG and SS to Platinum.

For D/P/P

You must have received the Pokedex from Professor Rowan at Sandgem Town


You must have received a Pokedex from Professor Oak at Mr. Pokemon"s house (North of Cherrygrove City)

You would need 2 DS consoles and then just head to the Union Room, found in the Pokemon Centre, on both games and trade from there. You will need 2 Pokemon in your party to be able to trade.

You are watching: Can you trade between platinum and soulsilver

Issues arise when trading between generations (gen 3 to gen 4, for example) as Pokemon, their Moves and their Held Items, may not exist in the past or future.
