==General== *Has useful stats the only one disappointing is HP. *Has access to levitate giving it only 2 weaknesses, water and rock but rotom-h has coverage for. *Rotom-H also has a weakness to Stealth Rock forcing it to have rapid spin support. *Might be outclassed by Victini and Darmanitan in some cases having lower speed then them. *Has 7 resistances helping it be a good check for many pokemon. *Overall a pokemon that is worth considering for a team slot. ==Choiced== Rotom-H @ Choice Scarf/Choice Specs Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Volt Switch/Thunderbolt - Overheat - Hidden Power [Grass] - Trick/Thunderbolt *Choice Scarf/Specs gives rotom-h the boost of speed and power respectively to function greatly. *Volt Switch is the main move to be use when you need a scouter, thunderbolt is optional if you want more power but you also lose out on scouting usually the main thing rotom-h does. *Overheat is a great way to put holes into worn down teams take note that you also lose the power the next turn. *Hidden Power Grass should be there to nail rhyperior a big threat to rotom-h. It can also be used to deal super effective damage to Claydol. *Trick is in the last slot to cripple stealth rock leads and defensive pokemon, Thunderbolt can be used over trick to make a more reliable chance to KO blastoise,slowbro,suicune and milotic but trick also cripples those pokemon. *evs are straight forward invest in full special attack and speed, 4 SDef or 4 Def to fill the extra 4 evs. ==Pain Split== Rotom-H @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Thunderbolt/Volt Switch - Overheat - Will-O-Wisp/Hidden Power [Grass] - Pain Split *This set allows rotom-h to freely switch between attacks to help it gain more momentum. *Thunderbolt is the reliable STAB, Volt Switch being an option though oveheat is needed and will be the only reliable attack making thunderbolt superior. *Will-O-Wisp can cripple many physical attackers mainly rhyperior and snorlax. *Pain Split is the main move allowing rotom-h to take advantage of it's stealth rock weakness. *Given evs are just like the set before, full invested SAtk and Spd, the 4 evs can be invested to 4 SDef or Def. ==Other Options== *Rotom-H can make use of toxic to cripple it's threats, though will-o-wisp's attack drop is very useful to deal with rhyperior,swampert and flygon. *Discharge can be used over Thunderbolt and Volt Switch but again will-o-wisp is more useful again because of the attack drop though rotom can make use of double status. *Electro Ball can be utilized with thunder wave to make it 4x stronger. *Shadow Ball can be used but rotom-h loses his STAB from gen 4 so it's not really useful, it also doesn't hit anything that rotom-h's main moves can't hit *White herb is usable sometimes for overheat but the one time use isn't so helpful. *Substitute can be used on the pain split set for a sub pain split but rotom-h won't be liking the overheat drop in substitute. *A defensive set can be run but rotom-h's Stealth Rock weakness it's not easy to switch in. *Dual Screens can be used as rotom-h has volt switch but xatu is probably a better dual screener. *A restalk set possibly with status can be used but it is quite hard to pull of because of rotom-h's stealth rock weakness. ==Checks & Counters== *Stealth Rock is rotom-h's nightmare because overheat forces switches most of the times. *Like said in the start rotom-h has 2 weaknesses both it has coverage to and 7 resistances making it very hard to check however, Rhyperior makes short work out of rotom-h only being crippled by trick and although hidden power grass is 4x super effective to rhyperior it can still take the damage thanks to Solid Rock. *Flygon is just like rhyperior resisting both rotom-h's STABS and also doesn't mind being tricked not including the Choice Specs variant but flygon can also hit it hard with outrage. *Swampert is sort of a check also resisting rotom-h's STABS but is hurt badly by HP Grass but it's hard to predict around it on the choiced variant of rotom-h. *Snorlax although doesn't look like a check can resist overheat thanks to Thick Fat and thunderbolt and volt switch won't be doing much either although it hates being tricked a Choice Scarf/Choice Specs and is a choice band snorlax is crippled by will-o-wisp too. *Support Clefable is a big threat to rotom-h taking all it's moves easily. *Druddigon resists all of rotom-h's moves and can hit back with strong outrage ==Synergy== *Virizion is a great partner for rotom-h being able to drive away rhyperior and swampert with leaf blade while hitting snorlax with a strong close combat. Flygon won't be wanting to stay in on virizion either. *Shaymin is a pretty good check resisting water and giving nightmares to rhyperior and swampert while doing great damage to flygon but can't take care with snorlax *Blastoise is also a great partner being able to resist water and drive away ground and rock types, it also has Rapid Spin which is great for rotom-h. *Hitmontop is also a decent partner resisting rock and spinning Stealth Rock away with Rapid Spin.
