Uh... maybe? I don't think they have any bias against Water-types, it's probably just coincidence that none of them besides Kingler evolved.

"Hey! I was looking forward to seeing you! My rival should be strong to keep me sharp."
Your rival would like to battle!
Ash getting a bird, grass starter, water-type, and a fire-type is a formula has has been used in each region so far. I thought of the water-types not evolving (with exceptions) as a feature in that formula, and some were given reasons.
Totodile - comic relief
Squirte - leader of the Squirtle Squad
Palpitoad does have another evolution stage, but he and Seaking were caught evolved.
Squirtle, Corphish, and Buizel are excused because they were amazing battlers.
Totodile and Oshawott are nothing more than comic relief.
Honestly, they probably could get away with doing Oshawott. I mean, he'd still have Tepig and Snivy to satisfy the producers overly ravenous marketing appetite riiight? Squirtle wouldn't cause then the Squirtle Squad would be messed up, and Totodile is too happy. A dancing Croconaw might be...disturbing.
But seriously, there's a decent amount of demand for Oshawott evolving so I say they should go for it at some point.

Totodile - Comic relief, but I can see him evolving more than Miju.
Squirte - Leader of the Squirtle squad. Unlikely to evolve into Wartortle.
Mijumaru - This thing's hopeless.
Corphish - This bro 'd look awesome as a Crawdaunt.
Palpitoad - The toad looks fine as it is.
Buizel - It hates Floatzel, right? :/
