Game Info

Rotom is a Generation IV Pokémon, first appearing in the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl games. With the release of Pokémon Platinum, Rotom was given the ability to transform into 5 other forms with the aid of a special item. In Generation V, to change Rotom's form, you need to go to the basement of Shopping Mall Nine and interact with one of the many boxes of electronics, and choose a form. You will be asked to allow Rotom to forget a move and learn a move the type of the form it takes.

Trivia

  • The Secret Key, which is obtained in a Nintendo Wi-Fi event, looks a lot like Rotom, minus the "arms".
  • Rotom is one of three Ghost-types whose color isn't in the black or purple category which means it has no purple or black colorations. The others are Shedinja (brown) and Froslass (white).
  • Rotom is the second Pokémon with the most forms, if you exclude Unown. Deoxys comes next, followed by Castform.
  • Strangely, whenever Rotom makes its special sound in the manga, it actually sounds like a motor.
  • Rotom's name could be a combination of rotor and phantom, which is another word for ghost.
    • Rotom's name is also the word "motor" spelled in reverse, a likely reference to its ability to possess machines through their motor.
  • Rotom is the 3rd Pokemon to have its name be a word reversed. The first two are Arbok and Ekans.
  • In a lot of Frost Rotom's artwork, it is pictured frowning when all the others are smiling.
  • Next to the type-changes when it takes other forms, its eyes and the plasma around it change color too (Frost-purple, Fan-orange, Mow-green, Wash-blue, Heat-red).
  • Rotom is the only Pokémon that is Electric/Ghost-type.
  • Rotom's new forms are only available in Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver and Black and White versions. When traded to any other versions, it automatically reverts to its original form.
  • Rotom changes its forms in a similar fashion to Deoxys in the Generation IV games.
  • Rotom is the only Pokémon with the ability to change its form by will that must possess another object in order to do so. Castform, Deoxys, Giratina and Shaymin actually transform their bodies. However, Burmy is similar to Rotom in that it merely changes its surrounding cover.
  • Rotom is the only Pokémon whose alternate forms have a different base stat total than that of the original form. Other Pokémon with alternate forms may have different distributions, however.
  • In Pokémon Battle Revolution, its "arms" are almost clear and are tinted a gentle blue.
  • Fan Rotom is the only form with a special move whose base power isn't over 100.
  • Before the Generation V games, many of Rotom's Formes were the only Pokémon that could learn their special attacks, but weren't that attack's type.
  • As of the official Japanese tournament held in 2008, all of Rotom forms have been banned from official tournaments. This is due to the special status of the alternate forms as event-exclusive Pokémon.
  • Rotom's origin comes from a species of Obake, which are objects that become animate when reaching their 100th year of existence, and a Bakemono, which is referring to a state of transformation or shape-shifting.
  • Rotom changes type when it transforms. ( Only in Generation V+ )
  • In Pokémon Black and White, when it changes to Fan Rotom, it becomes a Flying type, which is immune to Ground type attacks, and yet it still has the ability Levitate, making the ability useless.
  • Rotom is the only Electric-type Pokémon with multiple forms.
    • However Arceus also has multiple forms and can be Electric.
    • Rotom is rumoured to be the cousin of Sinnoh's legendary trio, possibly because of these reasons: They all have the ability Levitate, they all can fly, The Trio is Legendary while Rotom is considered Semi-Legendary, and Rotom is very Smart much like Uxie, and is very brave much like Azelf.
  • Rotom has símilar ability to Castform even he doesn't has the ability Forecast he able to change his type.

                                    

Origins

It may be based on a Poltergeist or related to the phrase "ghost in the machine". As Banette originated from a castaway doll, Rotom may have originated from a toy robot.

Name Origin

Pokemon Platinum reveals Charon named Rotom. Rotom's name is actually the word "motor," spelled backwards, due to the fact that all of the household appliances it can turn into have motors. It is one of the few Pokémon that is an actual word spelled backwards.
