Well, it was hard trying to find a Pokemon Pokefan didn't list, but I found one. Today, we're covering Rotom and all of its Formes. Post a set for any of them!

Guess I'll start.


Scouting Lead
Modest @Choice Scarf
Volt Switch
Hidden Power Fire/Ice
EV's: 252 SpAtt/252 Spe/4 Hp

Well as said above this is your main scouting lead, the idea is to lead with Rotom and then Volt Switch out giving you and early advantage while they set up Stealth Rock. Hydropump can also be used to kill major threats like Heatran and Gliscor. HP Fire is a good choice to take out all Ferrothorns (1/5 teams have a Ferrothorn on it) but HP Ice helps deal with those nasty Dragons

Bulky Rotom
Bold @ Leftovers
Volt Switch/Thunderbolt
Pain Split
Ev's: 252 Hp/252 Def/4 SpAtt

This set makes great use of Rotom's natural bulk, movepool and typing. With Levitate you gain no weaknesses and gain a few resistances. The idea of this set to to counter most Rain/Sand teams. Will-O-Wisp maximizes your survivability while painsplit lets you regain that ever so important heath and Hypro will still give you the option to hit many pokes with a supereffective STAB move.

Rain Abuser
Modest @ Choice Scarf
Volt Switch

Well with Drizzletoed being to dominate in this metagame naturally Rotom-W is greatly boosted. This set works much the same as the Lead set only with Rain up your now 100% accuracy Thunder is a great way to plow through any team and finish off pokes at even 3/4 hp. This set (talking from experience) is a sure fire way to put more holes in teams than in Swiss Cheese.

well seeing as oak posted three rotom-w sets i'll post 3 rotom-c sets to counter

Double Status
Leftovers Bold
Moveset EVs
~ Discharge
~ Will-O-Wisp / Toxic
~ Leaf Storm / Hidden Power Fighting / Hidden Power Ice
~ Shadow Ball
252 HP / 72 Def / 96 SpA / 88 Spe
Rotom-C has the benefit of using Leaf Storm alongside Discharge for a good combination of attacks that hit most Pokemon neutrally. The dilemma is that Leaf Storm is weaker in comparison to Rotom-W's Hydro Pump after using them both twice (210 damage from Leaf Storm and 240 from Hydro Pump). Despite this, Rotom-C makes a fine user of double status . Discharge is a favorable alternative over Thunder Wave to prevent loss of coverage while still maintaining the 30% chance of paralysis. Will-O-Wisp is an excellent option against the usual physically adept Pokemon while Toxic is for the more defensively oriented Pokemon such as Zapdos and Blissey. Leaf Storm is a great option to OHKO Swampert but also hit Tyranitar hard; however, Special Attacks drops may become a problem, so Hidden Power Fighting is a great alternative on this set as the combination of both Hidden Power Fighting and Will-O-Wisp can shut down most Tyranitar. On the other hand, Hidden Power Ice gives roughly the same coverage with Discharge and Shadow Ball, with only Magnezone being the real threat to Rotom-C.

You can efficiently use all three status moves alongside Hidden Power Ice or Fighting to give something similar to a "triple platform" of status. You must be more aware of certain switches to Pokemon who are already suffering from status; however, it is an excellent tactic to cripple as many Pokemon as possible. Losing an offensive move could also give more Pokemon a good switch-in though, so be cautious when considering this.

Special Choice
Choice Scarf / Choice Specs Timid / Modest
Moveset EVs
~ Thunderbolt
~ Shadow Ball
~ Leaf Storm / Hidden Power Fighting / Hidden Power Ice
~ Trick
252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Like on the other Rotom Appliances, Trick is a pretty nifty move on Rotom-C. With a Choice Scarf, Rotom-C makes a pretty good revenge killer, as the EVs allow it to outspeed Gyarados that have a Dragon Dance set up. Shadow Ball can be used for opposing Rotom Appliances or any Cresselia that stands in your way. Shadow Ball also allows you to OHKO Gengar; the given EVs also allow you to outspeed a non-Scarfed max Speed Timid Gengar. Leaf Storm is a great option in the third slot as it can take out Swampert but also hit Tyranitar as hard as Hidden Power Fighting on the first hit. Hidden Power Fighting can be used to hit Tyranitar if you really fear it, and it hits Heatran as well, while Hidden Power Ice hits Flygon for the most certain OHKO and destroys other Dragon switch-ins as well as Grass switch-ins.

Trick is pretty fun here, since Rotom-C is able to Trick a Choice Scarf or Choice Specs onto some of its most common switch-ins, such as Blissey, who won't really enjoy a Choice Scarf / Specs, and from there Rotom-C can become a potential Special Sweeper. If you want both Leaf Storm and a Hidden Power then Trick can be replaced, but then you are completely walled by Blissey. The main reason to use Rotom-C over other Rotom Appliances as a Choice Scarf user is its ability to take out Swampert, and even if you don't have Leaf Storm, Swampert won't switch in until it's completely sure. With Leaf Storm being its signature move, and Hidden Power Fighting being another common move, Tyranitar will be less inclined to switch in, unlike with the more common Rotom-H. You could use Choice Specs if you'd prefer power over Speed, but generally Rotom-W is the better option when it comes to using Choice Specs.

Defensive Substitute
Leftovers Timid
Moveset EVs
~ Substitute
~ Will-O-Wisp
~ Thunderbolt / Discharge
~ Shadow Ball
252 HP / 68 Def / 188 Spe
Rotom-C can make great use of Substitute in OU. Many Pokemon such as Swampert will switch out at the sight of Rotom-C, allowing it to get up a Substitute with ease. Behind a Substitute, it can cause some mayhem as well as making itself harder to revenge. Will-O-Wisp will cripple Scizor and Tyranitar that may want to switch into Rotom-C to Pursuit or Crunch it. Will-O-Wisp has a shaky 75% accuracy, which is another reason why Substitute can be useful, as it gives you two chances to burn the opponent. An Electric-type move is standard fare for Rotom-C, but the choice of which one depends on whether you prefer more power or the 30% chance to paralyze an opponent's Pokemon. Shadow Ball is a powerful STAB move to hit Gengar and opposing Rotom-A and combines with the Electric-type move to make a combination only resisted by Magnezone in OU. For teams relying on entry hazards, Substitute Rotom-C is a very effective spinblocker because it can threaten the common spinners in OU as well as being able to set up a Substitute on the switch.
