Which one prevents the download of an event multiple times? This cartridge or the game itself? --Abcboy (talk) 05:11, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

For Generation I-III Pokemon distribution, the holder of the distribution cartridge only, there is no limiter.
For Generation III unlock events (Eon/Aurora/MysticTickets), the game itself.
For all Generation IV-V events, the game itself stores a list of all Wonder Cards ever recieved, blocking repeated Cards so you cannot get the same event twice. Bluesun (talk) 12:52, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Just want to add one little thing here. In Generation V, events they were distributed via infrared can be obtained multiple times. Such as the Kanto Starter eggs in Japan. Lady Ariel 22:30, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
