Rodney entered the Sumo Tournament with Golurk, who won many challenges from other trainers. Golurk came to the finals, where it faced Ash's Pignite. Pignite dodged many of Golurk's attacks and hit its back. Golurk attempted to push Pignite away, but Pignite grabbed Golurk and slammed Golurk off the ring, defeating it.
None of Golurk's moves are known.
