Pokemon Platinum is a great game and can probably be found for quite a good price, and Black and White is a pretty epic game too but I would recomend Platinum over it though.

I would have assumed that all the games will be compatable with X/Y because they're just DS games, and they'll surely think of a way for transfer, Especially if you get the digital copy AND include some option to transfer from DS to your memory. Alas that would mean your 3DS would now be the carrier of your pokemon and not your cartrage. Theoretical Speculation at best anyways.
Anyways, I would also get HG/SS first, then if you're still in the mood, get B/W Then continue your story to B/W2... I viewed them as two parts to a whole story, them black and white games, and one alone doesn't bring much justice. --- For those buying EarthBound: Take the survey, and mention that you want EarthBound 0 and Mother 3 in your country! (This also applies to Majora's Mask.)
