I skipped BW initially because you could basically only catch the new Pokémon for most of the game. It wasn't until late last year that I decided to give it a shot and in the end I actually found it somewhat refreshing.
I didn't like many Pokémon designs in Gen 5, so it took me longer to come up with a team I liked, but I did eventually and had a blast.
As long as there's enough cool Pokémon designs for me to base an entire ingame team around, I don't mind if it's really new Pokémon only until after Elite 4. But from the trailer it seems like we'll get at least SOME older Pokémon to catch in the main game, and that's fine, too.
we already know that there will be older pokemon in the main game
Where are you getting this information? I hope you don't think that just because of the game trailer, because they probably picked what they did deliberately so that they'd only have to introduce the few specific new Pokemon that they wanted to introduce.

I hated that in BW because the gen 5 pokemon sucked, almost all of them weren't very good and looked bad(I actually liked trubbish) and yet I was stuck with those pieces of garbage
unless they can give me something good, I'd rather a nice mix of their new swill and actually good pokes like pikachu and such
EX: zigzagoon was a weak early pokemon that looked good and had good lore, pikachu was a early poke that was actually useful and looked good, rattata is also weak and useless but didn't look to bad, patrat is neither good looking, nor interesting, nor strong I'd rather a pikachu or a zigzagoon
EX2: don't get me started on pidgey -> tailow -> pidove
