    I'm pretty sure it has to do with a Nintendo event or the Mystery Gift. But I'm not entirely sure.
  3. It has to do with E-Reader cards, which I believe was left out of all non-japanese versions. If not, then it has to with scanning an E-reader card to let you through.

    Yes, it was originally supposed to be a pseudo-event that would unlock the enigma berry and a few bonus trainer (I believe) but when nintendo bailed the e-reader, that building and that door have pretty much lost all their utility.
