Can you trade Pokemon from/to a 3DS---original DS?

Previously I only owned the original silver DS (yes very archaic I know). Just picked up a 3DS and was wondering if I could do trade evolutions on my own now. Can I trade between my original DS and my new 3DS?

Poke Transfer from 4th Gen games works between a DS and a 3DS too.

There's no catch like "can only do post-game" though right?

You can trade between any two Gen5 games after earning one Badge. Transferring from Gen4 games is only available in the post-game.

Ok awesome. At the very least can do trade evos even though I haven't beaten E4 yet.

For the record, you do not trade between gen 4 and 5. You simply transfer the pokemon directly, which does not evolve Machoke and Seadra (for example). You need 2 different gen 5 games if you wish to evolve your pokemon.

The 3DS has a DS emulator in it.

It's virtually another DS.
