I want to get a Dusknoir in a new file of Platinum, and I have 2 DS's as well as HG and SS, and I know that you CAN trade between the 5th gens BW and B2W2 using the Infrared thingy, but can you do something similar in gen 4? Or is the only way to trade in those games using the Union Room and Friend Codes?

Yes, you can still trade, but you have to use the Union Room, Friend Codes will not work because using them to trade requires the internet. You will have to use your other DS and your HG/SS to get Dusknoir in your Platinum.

Hope this Helps!

How exactly do I access the union room in HG and Platinum respectively? I tried searching it up, but I found very little information.
Go upstairs in the Pokemon center, then find the lady that says something along the lines of "Welcome to the Pokemon Wireless Club Union Room" (She should be on the top level of the Pokemon center) (On both games) When she asks you if you want to enter, press yes. Once you get both games in the union room, wait a moment, somebody should come into the union room. On one of your games, talk to the other person in the room, ask for a trade. Now, on the game that didn't request the trade, accept the trade. Once you accept the trade, you will be put on the trading screen.
Keep in mind, you can only trade Pokemon that are currently in your party.
Haha, thanks so much. I got my shiny new Dusknoir (yes it IS a shiny one by the way) and she is kicking serious butt. I truly appreciate the help
No problem :)
