Nah, batlles, story, contests, even seeing the graphically changed Sinnoh and the new characters make Platinum interesting. In the age of rampant hacking and worldwide trading, completing the Pokedex seems like not much of a goal to me.
Besides, people should only catch Pokemon they like, in my opinion, whether esthetically or strategically.
