    trimming is when you use a program to trim your rom down a bit.
    you can save space on some games that trim a lot
    it basically just gets rid of the data that isn't needed but this does not affect gameplay(sometimes download play)
    also you should use the search engine instead of making a new thread this questions been asked a few times
    and here's a good rom trimmer if you need one http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=55162

    and since my explanation isn't that good heres one from Sinkhead

    With a smart trimming application, it won't be affected at all. With a blind trimming app, it could break multiplayer and Download Play on some games. Use the ones suggested in the other threads like NDS Tokyo Trim.
