Question from a member.
" I have a pokemon platinum version, of which I've beaten, and a pokemon fire red version. I want to migrate from fire red to my platinum but the migrate pokemon button will not come up! Could you please help me figure this out! I really want my Charizard!!"

After doing a bit of Googling, the Gameboy slot might be broken.
Put the games in a friend's DS, and try there.
If that doesn't work, then I don't know.

But my gameboy slot isn't broken, I can play fire red on my DS still.

Have you been messing around with the time on your DS?

Yea once but I reset it. Why? Would that effect it?

Yeah, when you change the clock in the DS, it messes up the migrating options.
I wasn't able to migrate my Pokemon from Emerald to Diamond because of this.
I waited and the problem eventually fixed itself.
How long has this been going on for you?

I only got fire red 3 days ago and I did the time thing yesterday. So I can't migrate for say a week or two? Or months.

No, it'll be more like a few days.
I guess just wait until Monday or Tuesday, then try again.

Yes ma'am, thank you very much. I bought diamond yesterday cause I thought it was just the platinum version. No biggie though, now I have diamond too! :D

Well, that just made getting more starters and version exclusives a little easier then :)
Update us in this thread in a few days if anything has changed.

Hmm, well i checked this morning and the migrate button still has not shown up :/ I might just have to migrate straight to black instead.

You can't migrate from FR/LG/R/S/E to Black/White. You HAVE to migrate to D/P/Pt/HG/SS with the Pal Park then you can transfer them from D/P/Pt/HG/SS to Black/White through the PokeTransfer. You can't skip the D/P/Pt/HG/SS step. :P

You definitely sure you've been to the Pal Park and have the National Pokedex (seen all of the Sinnoh Pokemon)?

If you put FireRed into your DS, are you able to play it (is the DS recognising FireRed)?

Try borrowing a friend's version of DPPt/HGSS that's been beat, and see if you can transfer Pokemon through that.
I'm thinking it might be your game that's the problem.

I bought diamond the other day so I'm just gonna replay it and get rid of my platinum because it's completely useless to me now. :P now I can get the shiny charmander that I want so bad!!
