I made the mistake of selling my copies of Diamond and Platinum some time ago, and I haven't bought Heart Gold/Soul Silver (though I do intend to soon). From what I've been able to ascertain, the only means of moving from Gen III to Gen V is to use a Gen IV game as a go-between; would I be correct with this?
It's also worth pointing out that I have one DS Lite and one 3DS - will I still be able to make the transfers with those?
One other question - since I'll be trying to complete the Pokedex in Black 2, I'm going to need all of the starters. Can Pal Park be used in Heart Gold/Soul Silver with a GBA game that's just started? If I'd have to complete the Emerald three times to get them across then it doesn't seem worth it.
If you have Emerald don't forget to clone your Pokemon for you know, the sake of having your awesome Pokemon in multiple games/trade fodder. --- Currently playing: DragonQuest IV Chapters of the Choosen(DS), Pokemon Platinum/Heartgold(JPN), Street Fighter 3(Xbox360)
