When you buy 10 or more poke balls, you get a bonus premier ball. All it says in it's discription is that it is good for some sort of event. Does anyone know more specificly what it is useful for?

Premier Balls are just the same as normal Poke Balls, they just have a different design. It's never specified in the games what that "special event" they commemorate is.

But they have no special effect or anything... so maybe you can just use it if you see one of your favourite pokemon in the wild or something :)

Premier balls have the same catch rate as regular pokeballs.
Did PM get all those votes purely because he is the PM? (i upvoted, go PM!)
Yeah, PikaMaster is good
Well, just the other day, I was playing pokemon white and was tying to catch Zekrom. I caught Zekrom on my 2nd pokeball attempt overall using the premier ball. So I believe that the major pokemon catching opportunities are what it means by "special events".
No, if this was true Bulbapedia/Serebii would definitely have mentioned it. the catch rate with the Premier ball is the same with the Pokeball (your Zekrom thing was just dumb luck)
The "special event" is buying 10 Poke Balls.  That's all.  It's not designed to catch anything easier.  I'm just glad you can buy them by themselves in X & Y.  {I attempt to catch my shinies in Premier Balls.  When I can remember, anyway.}

It is just the same as a pokeball. I think when ruby/saphire came out they needed an extra ball, not including the ones they already had.
