When you buy a copy of Ruby or Sapphire, you will recieve a free e-reader card. However, these are not TCG cards- they contain a trainer!
When you've got two GBA's hooked up, swipe the card and from the main menu on your Pokémon Ruby or Sapphire game, select "Mystery Event", and a battle will begin with the trainer on the card.
As of yet, we do not know what sort of effect this will have on the main game- will it train up your Pokémon? Is it like a Stadium battle? Why do I see dead people?
Anyway, the potential of this seems to be endless and could keep people playing for years to come. Who knows, these cards could unlock the missing old Pokémon.
Update 13th May 2003
Another card has been revealed via a very bad quality picture in a Japanese magazine...
As you can see, the trainer obviously has is an Electrode and a Ninjask. What we don't know, is everything about the card.
