Fascinating, though when I first started reading your post I had this mental image of a teenager with his trusty Tasco telesecope spotting Planet X coming our way!!

Maybe its because they move so fast that they are easyer detectable, because they cast a shadow on the star every few days, while slowmoving planets like ours only pas the same point ever 365 days.
So to find planets like our own, year long surveys of the same stars are needed.
