What exactly does an e-reader do.
Basically it takes special cards that you scan in to activate things like games, animation, tools, etc.
The E-Reader allows you to access a hidden mini games with some cards and check the pokedex. Beware, as some new cards (such as holos and certain ones) will not allow you to scan them.
Another note: If you want mini-games, they can only be found on certain cards from EXPEDITION, AQUAPOLIS, AND SKYRIDGE ONLY. If you just want Pokedex and playing information, they can be found in any expansions Expedition-on.
There are currently seven sets of Pokemon cards that have cards with e-code, which is Expedition, Aquapolis, Skyridge, EX: Ruby and Sapphire, EX: Sandstorm, EX: Dragons, and EX: Team Magma vs. Team Aqua. I also believe that the upcoming set this June, EX: Hidden Legends, will also have e-code. However I do believe that the game will be retiring this feature soon.
While most non-holo/non-parafoil cards contain Pokedex (bottom) code, some Expedition, Aquapolis, and Skyridge code also have a fun variety of programs for you to play with.
Some cards contain hidden tcg attacks or pokepowers that can be used in casual non-tournament play. This gives a game an interesting twist.
Some cards contain tools such as battle timers and coin flippers.
Some cards contain mini movies relating to the pokemon you scaned in. You may have to collect different cards in order to do this.
Some cards contain mini games that are hours of fun to play. You most likely have to use different cards in order to do this.
Some cards contain what is called "Construction Blocks" which allow to create customizable music or your own arcade platformer game.
The e-reader is not just for the Pokemon-e TCG as well. There are several cards from Nintendo that use the e-reader relating to other video games.
Animal Crossing-e: by linking your e-reader to the gamecube you can download fun items and many other things to make your "other life" a better one.
Pokemon Battle-e: Download trainers to fight and all new berries into your Pokemon: Ruby or Sapphire game pak.
Pokemon Channel-e: Download new paint patterns or pictures to paint with.
Mario Party-e: This is a fun card game that uses the e-reader to make you the superstar of games! Based on the fun Mario Party series for Gamecube and Nintendo 64.
NES series: Download classic NES games into your Game Boy Advance!
Game and Watch Series: There are several games that made the early 80's rock! Now enjoy them through the power of the e-reader.

Card games for the e-reader are generally rated e for everyone by the esrb.
I believe that was the Celebi promo.

40 Bucks?! That was a waste of money, I found one near new at Game Stop for $15.
