I know you can get one of the two in heartgold from the guy with the stones and then trade to b/w, but is there any way to get both? Would saving before you choose a stone and then trading the pokemon to b/w then reloading the save and doing it with a different stone work?

No it wont work but you can just trade for one on the GTS

Two possible solutions (just to warn you, for the first one you will have to delete your save file; also, this might take a week or so):
Solution 1

1.) Receive either one in HG/SS
2.) Migrate it over to B/W
3.) Delete the save file on HG/SS and restart, getting to the point where you receive a Hoenn starter again
4.) Migrate the other one over to B/W

Solution 2 (you must have R/S/E)
1.) Follow steps 1-2 for Solution 1
2.) Migrate a Hoenn starter from R/S/E to HG/SS to B/W

Or just use the GTS.

Slightly complicated, but at least they work. (-o-)

true. I will add that.
thanks, i see why my suggestion won't work now; you have to save the game before trade -.- also, would I have to go online battling to get torchic marked in my pokedex to be able to recieve it on gts? or does someone use it in-game or on the battle subway?
As soon as you receive the Pokémon the Pokédex information will be filled in.
you actually have to have seen it in-game. Battling someone with one wont register it
thanks, I'll see if I can find someone in gts negotiations who has one, or just search for one online
