Okay, I also have a question. I have a copy of Diamond which I transferred legit Pokemon off from Emerald. I then transferred these legit Pokemon to SoulSilver. However, I also had some hacked Pokemon in Diamond which I didn't transfer and I eventually released all of them. My question is, because I had hacked Pokemon, would they have effected the legit Pokemon in some way even though I have transferred them SoulSilver and I had released all those hacked Pokemon?
No, the hacked pokemon wouldn't have had any effect on your legit pokemon.

Yes. It's just as fun as it was 15 years ago. News areas to explore, new pokemon to catch, new adventures to experience. Not only are the graphics better and new features,, but there are also some improvements to to the mechanics too. I agree that the basic structure is pretty much the same after all these years, but why really change a formula that works very drastically. Sure, I'm not as enthustiastic poketrainer as I were a kid and the pokemon designs just get sillier by each generation (though there still are some gems there). I just now and then get on pokemon mood and just enjoy playing.
And I'm not denying that nostalgia wouldn't be a factor either.
Well Black and White got a lot of people into Pokemon again (including me). I think that was one of Gamefreak's goals, to attract past gamers again. Black and White just feel fresh when compared to the last few games. Yes it follows the same structure as the past games (honestly it's not like they can't change the formula...), but at the same time it subverts a lot of things. I got kind of tired of Pokemon after the third generation (don't know why a lot of people love it, the second generation was the series' apex I think), but after playing White I went back and played Sapphire just so I could play it right this time and get all the pokemon I need to transfer to White. However, I need one of the fourth generation games and although I can find Diamond and Pearl pretty cheap, I'd rather get Platinum.
Basically what everyone has already said.
For me its probably because the concept is the same that I play it. As much as I welcome an improved version of pokemon, or one
with a darker story, I know it won't be pokemon if the concept changes drastically.
Gamefreak has been making changes to the game, so despite it being the same, each and every game is different in their own way.
And also, building my team of cute little pokemon and training them, seeing them grow to become badass..it's indescribable.
Then, there's also the rival system and the elite four that never gets old
Although there's always freaky looking ones (like that ice-cream pokemon) but for every freaky looking pokemon, there's 10 more good looking ones.
I think that the vast majority of the new pokemon in Black and White look better than the ones introduced in the fourth generation. There are a few weird ones, but a lot of them look pretty natural. But I think the legendaries look pretty bad, excluding Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem.
Here is shown the Intro, gameplay demo for the first part and a demonstration in battle of Black Kyurem and White Kyurem. With comments of a lot of screaming japanese people.
The cover of Corocoro has been leaked and it reveals that the Kami trio apparently each get a new forme.

Does it say there anything about if other gym leaders are going to be replaced?
The only one it mentioned was Lenora being replaced by Cheren, who's now the first gym leader and gives out the Basic badge. There's no mention about whether any of the other Unova gym leaders are still around or got replaced, thought Brycen appears to still be a gym leader.

Higher quality and clearer scans, along with better image of the transformed Kami trio.
Also some translated info:
