Initially, I thought they were pointless. But after not having them in BW, I really want them back.
When you don't have access to wifi, and have already leveled up your team, it'd be nice to be able to improve a team member by giving it a new ribbon or something.
Furthermore, a lot of people have advocated a "2nd runthrough" w/o resetting. The way I see it, ribbons could be useful here. You should have the option to retake the gym battle challenge w/ a team of 6 guys below level 10. Maybe they get a temporary "ribbon" denoting this that prevents them being traded.
Anyways, after beating the elite 4 with them, you'd get a ribbon denoting that you beat the elite 4 (ob), but also one that says you completed the challenge. Your initial e4 team, perhaps, gets a different ribbon for the first completion of the game? These ribbons would be fairly rare - especially if you have 2 regions (like G/S), perhaps one a singles, and the 2nd a doubles - this would be really cool, as you could play the game through again with either format, and it'd be fun.
