== Synopsis ==
{{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 being 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 ithim that ithe 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 {{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 concernconcerned 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, whenbeing the weightinglast scaleperson to register. It's just as well, as half of Snorlax's weight breaks butthe hisweighting scale. Snorlax isquickly sleepingfalls back to sleep, 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 heit 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, hethe official disqualified them. Not totoo 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.
The next match is between Raiden's Feraligatr versus a {{p|Golem}}. The gang assumes that Golem is going to win due to its weight advantage but Raiden turns the tables by using Golem's disadvantages, knocking Golem down to the ground and winning the match. Ash was amazeamazed ofwith his match and too learns from it. After a few matches, it was Ash's and Snorlax's turn. Snorlax goes up against a {{p|Poliwrath}} and as a the match begins, Snorlax makes a surprising win as the Poliwrath was quickly knocked out when it attackattacks Snorlax's stomach and was bounced back, inquickly lessknocking thanit a minuteout. The shocked referee announceannounced the win and Snorlax deliberatelyhappily goes for the prize, but Ash quickly manages to call Snorlax back to it's Poké Ball. Raiden and Shonosuke were amazed of Ash's Snorlax's ability since Ash's is just a rookie. Outside the arena, Team Rocket cooked up a plan by using phony Pokémon paw prints to the audience for money and even steals the Pokémon who are participating in the competition as souvenir peddlers.
Soon, both Ash and Raiden manages to make it to the semi-finals. The two matches are Raiden's Feraligatr fightsagainst Blastoise while Ash's Snorlax fights {{p|Machamp}}. While Feraligatr wins in a very close match and combat, once again Ash's Snorlax makes an easy win byvia Snorlax'sits stomach, much to Ash's surprise. Raiden congratulates Ash for making it to the finals, but he won't go easy on him just because he's a nice kid. Shonosuke tells Ash that he should be proud of himself that; Ash is the first rookie whoto reachesever toreach the finals. He even tells them that finals isare next and tellsfor them to give it their best.
The FinalsFinal match begins between Raiden's Feraligatr and Ash's Snorlax. Snorlax makes itsthe first move but Feraligatr dodges it. Snorlax managebarely manages to retain hisits balance and manageteetering on the edge of the ring, still manages to avoiddodge Feraligatr's attack. Raiden is immediately shocked and impressed with how deceptively agile Snorlax is. Both of them makesmake an impressive move but as Feraligatr was pushing Snorlax out of the ring, Ash manages to telltells Snorlax to take a deep breath, using hisits stomach to push Feraligatr outaway, saving Snorlax from being out of the ring. Feraligatr managemanages to toss Snorlax out of the ring, but Snorlax managemanages to standland onin athe groundring with a huge impact, causing the ground and theentire stadium to shake. Because of that, Feraligatr loses its balance and Snorlax manages to push it out of athe ring, winning the match and the competition. Misty and Brock are happy that Ash wins, even though Misty was sad that Feraligatr lost.
The prize-giving ceremony begins as Ash was presented athe King's Rock and a one year supply of Pokémon food. Happily, Snorlax rushes towards it, eats the entire supply of Pokémon food and goes to sleep. The gang was glad that they don't have to carry the supply with them and Ash returns Snorlax into his Poké Ball. Ash decides to send back his Snorlax fromto Professor Oak and get back his Noctowl since he can't feed him that much. Both Raiden and Ash shake hands and Raiden wishes him good luck on all his Johto League matches.
In the end, Team Rocket, with a bag of phony Pokémon paw prints, notice the competition is already over and have to wait for next year to sell it as Team Rocket has 'messed up again'.
