Needless to say it was showed through Whirl Cup and whole title "Alpha Omega of Water Pokémon!"how there exists tournaments and tests Misty has to enter and win in order to come closer toward her dream. Being like stepping stone in accomplishing title of becoming water master.
Concept which wasn't explored enough, but there were set foundations through this tournament, Seaking contest, water race etc.
So when counting all those gym leaders and E4 members specializing in one pokemon type like Misty, even champions like Wallace. All those water trainers Misty met, it would be rather logical to assume how there exists other people who just like Misty wish to become type masters(we already learned about one;Iris)or strive toward reaching E4 level of strength and recognition(something Misty again wish to reach as well favoring Lorelei).
I have to say giving Misty rivals like Andreas would have done lot of good for her journey . For once her dream would be explored more, there would be provided some opposition and tension through arrogant and disrespectful trainers like Andreas was. Challenging Misty beliefs and temperament nature. As well make her reconsider why she trains only water pokemon and where she does really stand in world full of other water trainers driving her forward. Through battling each other, building on interactions, entering tournaments similar to Whirl Cup etc.
Andreas was definitely perfect material for rival, although Marina from Orange Islands who had lot of enthusiasm and interest for type Misty adores as well.

Yeah. Misty's Poliwhirl is cool.
lmao this site's mods get triggered over everything so easily I'm out. bad website, won't be returning.
We got to see Misty's Poliwhirl do stuff here which is rare + I liked how we got to watch Misty succeed at fishing when she won the fishing contest.
Ah man, why didn't Misty keep her new Seaking? Her Johto team needed the boost.
The Azumaou fishing contest wasn't exactly the best anime-exclusive event that we've had, but it allowed Kasumi to be focused on, which was a positive. I found Tokio's superiority complex to be as exhausting as Shigeru's, so I was glad when Kasumi's Nyorozo beat his Nyorobon. It was nice of Kasumi to split her prize, too.
Andreas annoyed me on how rude he was. Even if he was the returning Seaking Catching Champion. I felt bad for Meowth having to be used as live bait, and then getting all tangled up in the fishing line. I really enjoyed the Poliwhirl vs Poliwrath.
