Left: Original Mendel Palace sprites. Right: Unused overworld sprites as they appear in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald.
The Mendel Palace sumo is an Easter egg in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Pokémon Emerald, which is also a cameo.
Hidden in the game's code, there is an oversized sprite of the sumos from Mendel Palace (known in Japan as "Quinty"). This was the very first game developed by Game Freak; the creators of the Pokémon franchise.
The reason why he appears in the game's code (if any reason in particular) is unknown. It is possible to force him as the player character sprites with a cheating device, or alternatively through the use of the "Guess Who?" glitch; only possible with Pomeg data corruption glitch to obtain a relevant ??????????.
