Thinking about gettin back in to pokemon

The only pokemon I've played is yellow. I've always thought it was cool that you could transfer pokemon between generations. I would like to start with Fire Red and transfer my pokemon all the way to Black 2. Is there any actual benefit or advantage to doing this?

Apart from missing out on a few special moves for certain pokemon, there's no real benefit to migrating all the way up from gen 3.

Actually, since it's probably easier to catch R/S/E's legendaries in R/S/E, rather than HG/SS, I'd say that might be another reason to do it. :D (That's also if you don't trade for Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza... or hack, of course.)

The best advantage is from Move Tutors available in Gen 3 only.

For instance, my Clefairy with Belly Drum, Soft-Boiled, Double Edge and filler (Heal Bell). This moveset is impossible without transferring from Gen 3.
