Is there a point to go back and play older generations?

Right now I have X and Black 2, I was thinking about getting Platinum and Soulsilver. Is there any benefits I can carry over from these two games to X?

You can transfer Pokemon to Gen VI from as far back as Gen III (RSEFRLGCXD,) and there are many moves that can only be learned in previous generations.

Also, they're a heck of a lot more fun than XY are.

This. Can pretty much Pokegen anything if you know what you're doing and have the necessary materials. Pokecheck isn't really necessary either (if you know what you're doing).

It's always fun to go back and play Colosseum

I love going back to Ruby/Sapphire for those trumpets

And HG/SS is just... dope.
