Distribution cartridges are special game cartridges that are used for Nintendo's distribution of Pokémon events, via DS Wireless Communications.

They are given to stores for event distribution and are not sold commercially. They only contain information for the event Pokémon and have no actual game data or save possibilities.

The cartridges only work from the start of the event to the end of the event. After the time has passed, the cartridges cease to work. Setting back the system time can circumvent this.

At the end of an event they are intended to be sent to Nintendo's Waste Management facility in Redmond, WA, where they are presumably destroyed.

These items can sometimes be found on eBay, for an exeedingly high price, however.
