Whenever Nintendo hands out event Pokémon (special creatures that players cannot catch in-game), it sends pre-programmed cartridges to participating stores around the country. In an effort to keep the number of legitimate monsters down and make special events at all relevant, those same stores must send the distribution cartridge back to Nintendo pretty much immediately.
