I've asked a question similar to this but for sword, however I want to do a steel hardcore nuzlocke in Platinum

Pretty sure it's Bronzor, near Cycling Road. Could be wrong, haven't played Platinum...
I think it's Bronzor on Route 211, unless you decide to grind your Piplup up to Level 36 before then.
Yeah, I think you're right. I didn't know Bronzor could be found there, Platinum exclusive only :/
Technically it's Empoleon. Don't know if that would work for a hardcore nuzlocke tho
You can also get a Probopass by catching a Nosepass in Mt. Coronet, which is immediately after Route 211.

The earliest you can get a Steel-type is Bronzor which you can get as soon as you get in Eterna City on route 211.
Other than that there is nosepass which evolves into Probopass which is a Steel-type and Empoleon which you can't get before the 5th gym.

"Other than that there is probopass which evolves into nosepass" Uhh did you mean there is Probopass which evolves from Nosepass?
The other way around i'll correct it.
