The short answer is you can't, at least not inside drastic itself.

I have been working on a work around and it's complicated. The best solution I have so far is to edit the save files themselves to export the pokemon data and then inject the pokemon into the new save file. I started the process when I wanted to figure out how to get around trade-evolves in SoulSilver. Because of the difficulty associated with NDS multiplayer and wifi operations I'm not sure if any emulator is able to do this.

I am currently working with a combination of tools to attempt a work around, mainly PKHex and the save file converter affiliated with them. Once I can get my pokes exported I am going to use a randomizer to modify Black or White (haven't decided) so they have altered evolutions for so-called "impossible" evos, I. E. trade, and then like I said inject the .pkm files into the new game save. Biggest hurdle is locating the correct save file in DrAsTic and then converting it without data corruption

With Drastic alone you can't do it.

Not possible with Drastic. You are better off using a save editor tool like PkHex to add the pokemon, stats and moves you want into the heartgold save file.

You can download it here: https://projectpokemon.org/pkhex/

Make an in-game save in both pearl and heartgold before you open the save files in PkHex. PkHex supports the .dsv (not .dss) save format Drastic DS uses. You can find the save in the Drastic/Backup folder. Make sure to back up your save files (not just save states).
