'''Ring Masters''' (Japanese: '''オーダイルVSカメックス!すもうバトル!!''' ''{{tt|Ordile|Feraligatr}} VS {{tt|Kamex|Blastoise}}! Sumo Battle!!'') is the 194th episode of the [[Pokémon anime]]. It was first broadcastaired in Japan on April 19, 2001 and in the United States on March 16, 2002.
==Major events==
* {{Ash}} sends his {{AP|Noctowl}} to {{an|Professor Oak}} and recalls hisadds {{AP|Snorlax}} to his [[party|team]].
* Ash participates in a [[Sumo Conference|Pokémon Sumo Competition]] and wins, earning a {{DL|Evolution-inducing held item|King's Rock}} as a reward.
* Brock [[Fourth wall|breaks the fourth wall]] at the beginning of this episode.
* Despite the sumo competition's weight requirement of at least {{tt|80 kilograms|176.4 lbs}}, many of the competing Pokémon's listed species weights are below the requirement, such as {{p|Arbok}} (65 kg) and {{p|Nidoking}} (62 kg). This is most likely because each species of Pokémon can vary in weight in the anime, as opposed to the games, where members of a species almost always weigh the same.
* The idea of Pokémon Sumo Wrestling would later be revisited in ''{{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}'' with the Ring Drop and Circle Push events of the [[Pokéathlon]].
* Music from the [[M02|second movie]] can be heard in this episode.
