Things like that need a explanation and casual viewers can't assume that he's automatically a member of the X-Men because he worked with the X-Men in X2. This isn't like the comics, where mutants can just pop up in a new issue w/o a clear explanation why they are back or why they are in the team.
Since this is a storyline where mutants are either in internment camps or part of a resistance group freeing said mutants, it's very easy to have Nightcrawler (or any other mutant) show up and not have them be a member of the X-men.

Anyways a very important thing that Bryan has said twice now, that gets lost on all this talk about multiple time travelers:

Singer: [The movie] deals with, I don't want to say time travel, but time displacement. A form of time travel which is steeped more in the X-Men [mythos].
