But really, he was cheap story reason to why Ash wouldn't win the Sinnoh league. I don't think it would have hurt him to win, but the writers needed him to scoot on to Unova.

He has a shiny Noctowl? That's rare. He's just not a connoisseur of rare pokemon? All the legendaries he meets are in the middle of doing important things, why does he need to catch them? I've already said that he doesn't catch pokemon because he just feels like it or wants a lot. There is no reason for him to catch a legendary, story or personality wise.

Read again.

He trains Pokemon so they can reach their potential. Once they get there, using them over and over would not let him interact with any other pokemon afterwards. So they go off to do something they are better at or need to do or find something to do at Prof. Oak's. Except Pikachu because he never counts.

He won the Orange Islands. He finished the Battle Frontier challenge. You have to remember, there are many other trainers that have been traveling just as long as him or longer. Where are they? Paul is confirmed to have been just as far as Ash has, so wouldn't he also have the same right to become Champ? It means that winning leagues doesn't make you a Champion, or even eligible to take the Elite Four challenge, if that even exists in the anime. When you have full grown adults that are still traveling trainers it means it's going to take awhile. (Extra Note: You can also argue that a Pokemon Master and Pokemon Champion are not on the same route.)

Also pre-warning DON'T bring the game protags in this, we already know the games and anime work on really different levels. I'll fight that argument if you want, but eh.
