Lol.....The second poster talked all about Heartgold/Soulsilver, and you're asking about platinum.
Anyway, Ethers and Elixers can be found throughout the game. However, if you have collected all of the ingame ones, you have to resort using other strategies; for example, you have to use Pokemon with the Ability pick up, such as:
Another tactic, which is more or less annoying, is berry planting with Leppa berries (takes only 12 hours; however, need to wate every 3 hours in real world time comparison or else you get the least outcome of 2 berries only.)
Another option is to teach a Pokemon thief, and find cleffas that hold leppa berries in Mt. Coronet. There is a 50% chance of getting them. Another way would be through the Berry master, which is unreliable since he does not give Leppa berries all the time.
Just to explain, leppa berries are like ethers.
