I just got an e-reader, and I have a few pokemon cards, but what do they
do when you scan them? I haven't tried it yet.

More about : pokemon cards

That depends on the card. Some cards, like the TCG cards, will show
PokeDex data or play a minigame when scanned. Others, like ticket
cards, berry cards, and trainer battle cards, are only usuable when the
eReader and its GBA are linked to another GBA with Pokemon Ruby or
Sapphire in it. I don't know about Fire Red or Leaf Green, though.

I just used the Eon Ticket and got Latios. Mainly I was wondering about
the cards used for the card game. They are scannable, but I didn't know
if the information you can scan is something permanently added to your
pokedex in the game, or if it's just temporary info to read.

Both temporary and pointless, since the info displayed on screen is the
same as the info printed on the card.

Yes. Yes you are.

With the mind-boggling amount of e-card/RS integration, it's very surprising
how useless all of it is.
