Is there anything reason to get BW1 as well as BW2?

I search but have some trouble finding what might be exclusive to BW1 only

Not really unless you care about the story.

You can't RNG eggs in BW2, but you can in BW. It's a pretty minor detail, but it's something. Other than that I can't think of any advantage to be gained from having BW over BW2

Aren't there more gen 5 pokes in BW compared to BW2? I might be wrong.

Also found out that you can only get the genies in BW1 and they're not available in BW2....

If you're playing on a 3DS, you can get them in their Therian forms from the Dream Radar (which only works with BW2 because BW1 doesn't have the coding to recognize the Therian forms).

A few other differences between B/W1 and B/W2. In B/W1 you can reach Iccirus City and Dragonspiral Tower BEFORE the E4 (in B/W2 it's postgame). There's also Brycen's gym which is empty in B/W2 postgame (he left for pokestar studios). Since Dragonspiral Tower is where you can find Dratini and its family, that's a big plus if you want to get a dragon other than possibly Axew before Victory Road. Also in B/W1 there's Route 10 that takes you to Victory Road and has some of the best route music in these games (they give you a snippet of the music in a house in Iccirus City in B/W2 but it's not the same) and Challengers' Cave off of Route 9 postgame with a few trainers and pokemon such as Riolu (in B/W2 you can find them at Floccessy Ranch before the E4.) You can also breed pokemon before the E4 in B/W1; in B/W2 you can't breed pokemon until after you beat the E4.

I thought the Dream Radar closed?

The Dream World closed, but Dream Radar is not the same thing. It's downloadable software for the 3DS that only works with BW2 and allows a much easier method of getting some HA pokemon in Gen 5. The two main draws of it are getting the Therian forms of the genie trio and getting the HAs of the cover legendaries from all of the Gen 4 games (including Ho-Oh and Lugia from HGSS). I've used it since X/Y came out.
