From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
A poster is a type of item used to decorate bedrooms in the Generation II games, Secret Bases in the Generation III games that take place in Hoenn, and Super-Secret Bases in the Generation VI games that take place in Hoenn.
In the second generation of games, there are four kinds of posters:
At the start of the game, the room is furnished with a Town Map. Found in many other locations as well, looking at this will let players view the region they are in.
However, by using Mystery Gift, players may receive one of the other three posters: a Clefairy Poster, a Jigglypuff Poster, or a Pikachu Poster, each of which has an image of the appropriate Pokémon.
A room can only have one poster at a time, and its location is fixed. Players can pick which poster is displayed by accessing the room's PC.
One feature of Pokémon Stadium 2 allows players to view the entire room and its decorations, including any posters, in 3-D.
