If Black/White hadn't contained any new Pokemon, it might as well have been added to Gen IV so it could be fully compatible with those games. Sure, we would miss out on some new moves and updated mechanics, but I think a lot of people would be frustrated if you couldn't trade freely between the games, especially when all the Pokemon are the same.

Granted, I probably would have still enjoyed playing White if there were only the previous Pokemon in game, but I think it brought back a good thing from the originals where the region was only populated by it's indigenous Pokemon, rather than those of other regions (until the post-game, at least).
