Are Rin, Momotaro, and Gou really starting to remind anyone else of Misty, Brock, and Nurse Joy from Pokemon?

Lately I’ve been collecting these Free! water charms, and upon looking at the back of the box I noticed that Rei is the only character who doesn’t have a second version. I thought this was a bit striking until I noticed the second versions of the other guys are in “elementary school” mode. (Even though they look pretty much exactly the same aside from Rin’s slightly different bangs.) So I suppose that’s an excuse not to do Rei since he wasn’t swimming in that era.
But still. Rei’s merch is what piles up the most in anime resale stores, and a friend even told me she saw his stuff marked down at Animate. He’s noticeably less popular than everyone else and it’s a bit sad. Poor Rei…
