I'm just going to guess and say that since Pokémon was only supposed to ever last for two generations, it's possible that the anime was originally going to follow in that direction and have Ash win the Johto league and come that much closer to becoming a Pokémon Master in the end. However, since Pokémon ended up becoming a huge success by that time, the anime writers had to change their direction and continue the show following Ash and Pikachu's journey as each new generation came along. It's definitely begun to follow a pattern I wish they would break out of and try to explore what it's like to tell a real story with actual plotlines. Sinnoh has been the only saga so far to come closest to doing this in my opinion.
