The Nintendo E-Reader was a peripheral for the Game Boy Advance that allowed cards to be swiped through to read data. The cards could hold games (i.e. Donkey Kong) or other information (i.e. unlockables for games such as Animal Crossing). The E-Reader cards were standard playing/trading-card size, and the data was held on a pattern of small dots on the bottom of the card. Due to its bulkiness and the limited amount of data one card could hold, Nintendo silently let the E-Reader die.

You need two Game Boy Advances (Nintendo DS won't work), one e-Reader and a Game Boy Advance Link Cable. Then you put the e-Reader in one of the GBAs and a Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald game in the other GBA. Then you connect the e-Reader to the other GBA with the Link Cable, swipe the Eon Ticket in the e-Reader and do something in the Pokémon game (not sure what; you might have to hold Start + Select when turning on the Pokémon Game instead of letting it start normally).
