Every BW Wi-Fi event Pokemon has a ribbon. What do they do?

There are "Pokémon Event" and "Pokémon Festival" Ribbons which have been distributed at Pokémon events and festivals. The description of these Ribbons may be "A commemorative Ribbon obtained at a mystery location." if the player has yet to obtain a Pokémon with one of these Ribbons themselves from an event - only obtaining a Pokémon with one from a trade.
Gift Ribbons available after Generation III normally prohibit Pokémon with them from being traded in the Global Trade Station.

So a gift ribbon doesn't do anything, just special to an event Pokemon, since you can't get it in the game.
