{{Ash}}, [[Misty]], [[Brock]], and {{AP|Pikachu}} are passing inside [[Rikishii Town]] when they sees a set of {{p|Feraligatr}} matches taking down a few Pokémon. After it's sixth win, Misty takes a closer look at the Feraligatr, who quickly falls in love with it. The gang soon finds out that the Feraligatr is owned by a trainer named [[Raiden]] who tells them that the competition here in this city are into sumo-wrestling and the [[Sumo Conference|Pokémon Sumo Competition]] is been held by [[Shonosuke]], the director of the Pokémon sumo society. Shonosuke explain the rules of Pokémon sumo-wrestling which the Pokémon only has to rely on their physical skills and not using of any of their usual attacks. He even mentions that Raiden and his Feraligatr are expecting to win this year’s Pokémon sumo competition which is held today. Ash decides to participate in the competition but Shonosuke reminds him that he needs to have Pokémon that is heavy. Pikachu enthusiastically volunteers, but Ash gently turns the offer down, reminding it that it won't pass the weight requirement.
In the Pokémon Center, Ash asks [[Professor Oak]] to transfer his {{AP|Snorlax}} due to the regulations of the competition. Since Ash has six Pokémon, Ash transfers his {{AP|Noctowl}} since Professor Oak wants to do research due to its [[Alternate coloration{{shiny2|unusual rare coloring]]}}. At the registration area, [[Team Rocket]], under disguise, places their {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}}, whom also disguise as a {{p|Miltank}}, manage to enter the competition. [[James]] and {{MTR}} are concern about [[Jessie]]'s plan of entering her Wobbuffet into the competition since it's a light-weight Pokémon, but Jessie tells them not to worry as she has already planned everything out. Meanwhile, Ash, who happens to register last, manages to gets his Snorlax into the competition when the weighting scale breaks but his Snorlax is sleeping even missing the opening ceremony. But as Shonosuke announces the prize, which is the [[King's Rock]] and a one year supply of Pokémon food, Snorlax finally wakes up when he heard about the food prize.
After Shonosuke finishes his speech and rules, the gang meets up with Raiden and his Feraligatr and they were amazed of the opponent's big Pokémon especially the {{p|Blastoise}} whom everyone says that it might win this competition. The first match is between Jessie's 'Miltank' versus an {{p|Ursaring}}. Jessie makes an easy win and was announce the winner of the match but Shonosuke lodge a protest to the referee. Shonosuke notice that Jessie's 'Miltank' uses a {{m|Counter}} attack, he official disqualified them. Not to happy about his decision, they reveal their true identity even their Wobbuffet. Shonosuke was furious about it and tells them that they make a mockery of the rules of this competition. Not bothered of what he says, Team Rocket were about to send out their Pokémon to attack but they were sending blasting off again by a {{m|Hydro Pump}} from Raiden's Feraligatr.
