He was once a {{pkmn|Trainer}} like {{Ash}} who was {{pkmn|training}} for the [[Silver Conference|Johto League]], until he came across [[Rikishii Town]] and gained interest in the [[Sumo Conference|sumo competition]].
While traveling through [[Johto]], Ash and {{ashfr}} met Raiden in [[Rikishii Town]]. He was the current champion of the town's sumo[[Sumo competitionConference]], and was entering again to defend his title. Ash entered the competition as well with his {{AP|Snorlax}}.
Eventually, the two ended up facing each other in the final round of the tournament. Raiden was using his {{p|Feraligatr}}, who had helped him reach victory in the previous year's competition. However, the {{ttype|Water}} type was no match for Ash's Snorlax, who ended up defeating the champion, winning Ash a [[King's Rock]] and a large supply of food. Although he lost, Raiden wasn't upset, instead congratulating Ash on his victory.

TheIt match could gowas anyevenly waymatched, but in the end Feraligatr managed to win and proceeded to the finals where he would fight against [[Ash's Snorlax]]. In the final, Snorlax made the first move, but Feraligatr dodged it. Because of this, Snorlax barely managed to retain its balance. Teetering on the edge of the ring, it still managed to dodge Feraligatr's attack. Raiden was shocked but also impressed with how deceptively agile Snorlax was. Both of them then made an impressive move, but as Feraligatr was about to push Snorlax out of the ring, Ash told Snorlax to take a deep breath. Using its stomach to push Feraligatr away, it managed to save itself. However, Feraligatr managed tothen tosstossed Snorlax, thoughhowever SnorlaxAsh's managedPokémon to landlanded safely in the ring with a huge impact, causing the entire stadium to shake. Due to this, Feraligatr lost its balance and Snorlax managed to push it out of the ring, winning the match and the competition.
Feraligatr's only known move is {{m|Hydro Pump}}.}}
