Giratina - Altered
An alternate unused animation frame for Giratina in its Altered Form; however, different sprites are used for the first and second animation frames.
Giratina - Origin
An alternate unused animation frame for Giratina in its Origin Form. This frame was actually shown in a pre-release screenshot.
An alternate unused animation frame for Shaymin in its Land Form; however, different sprites are used for the first and second animation frames.
Early Rotom Icons
Early gray versions of the Rotom icons.
For the sake of consistency, every Pokémon in every Pokémon game is given a Shiny variant. Arceus is no exception, having a Shiny palette for each of its 18 forms. However, because the only way to obtain it legitimately was through distributions, the Shiny version of Arceus was left unobtainable through normal means. Shiny Arceus was later made available as a distribution via serial code in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire with the purchase of tickets to the 18th Pokémon movie.
Unused Pokétch Apps
The "Stopwatch" and "Alarm Clock" apps for the Pokétch are unused, which was also the case in Diamond and Pearl. They are assumed to have been planned for event distribution, but they were never distributed in any event.
Lost debug mode
I managed to uncover some images. Upload those.
More than 500 text strings can be found talking about changing values for unknown debugging features. However, the debug menu code is probably lost.
Some example strings of interest (there are many more):

The Hall of Origin event from Diamond and Pearl still exists in Platinum. Arceus also still has its ??? form from Diamond and Pearl. Since the only difference visually is a palette swap nothing needed to be updated for it to work with the new animations.
Ace Trainer Deanna bug
In the Japanese version of Platinum, it's possible to get stuck in an endless loop battling Ace Trainer Deanna on Route 225 over and over until the player blacks out. This was fixed in international versions.
The Veilstone Game Corner games cannot be played in the European Version in order to comply with PEGI's new rating standards regarding gambling. Because of that, almost all references to gambling were removed and rewritten.

If you accomplish the feat of completing 10 uninterrupted bonus rounds,
please go to the counter.
|A polite request from the management:
Please take care not to spill Lemonade or Soda Pop on the Game Machines.
This will damage the Game Machines.
If you do happen to spill a drink, please inform reception.
|When a Poke Ball appears, it's a
chance to line up slot marks.
Replays and PIKACHU line up even if
you don't make an effort.
But you need to aim for better marks,
like Poke Balls and Moon Stones.
|I love Veilstone City because of the
department store and Game Corner.
It seems like I'm always coming here!
... But you know something?
I always have so much fun that before
I know it, it's already night time!
But my trusty Pokemon are with me so
I'm not afraid of going home at night.

your change to line up sevens.
Line thosse babies up and you're into
the bonus round!
|Hey! If you search the Game Machines
sometimes extra Coins fall out!
Thing is, it only tends to happen
once a day...
|I'll explain how the slot machines
work at this Game Corner.
During regular play, you should
stop the reels from the left.
During a bonus round, watch
where CLEFAIRY points and stop
the reels in that order.
|Hi! Let me tell you a little
bit about the Game Corner!
There's a very good reason to try
and collect a lot of coins here!
You see next door, you can exchange
your Coins for Technical Machines!
|A friend in my group scored a ton of
Why mess with a good thing?
I'll try the same spot, too!
|Recently, my friends keep beating
me at Pokémon battles so...
I come here to let off some steam.
Nothing's going my way today...
Are you a Trainer?
Did you battle the Gym Leader?
She happens to be my daughter.
She's some kind of tough!
|Are you a Trainer?
Did you battle the Gym Leader?
She happens to be my daughter.
She's a real tough cookie!
|Examine, if you will, the reels,
The Team Galactic logo, it is here.
...Ack. My streak is broken.
|Team Galactic, yes, I have a hunch
that they, too, may come here to play.
... Game Over? How can this be?
|...Ack. My streak is broken.||What? Game Over? ...AGAIN?|
