Rotom (Japanese: ロトム Rotom) is a Ghost/Electric-type Pokémon.

Biology

Rotom is a small, plasma-like Pokémon. It has been known to enter electrical devices and wreak havoc; in fact, the only available Rotom in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl resides in a defunct television in a haunted chateau. It is genderless and can breed with Ditto. Rotom is both Electric- and Ghost-type, making it immune to Fighting- and Normal-type attacks, and its Levitate ability makes it immune to Ground attacks.

Physiology

Rotom looks similar to Castform, but Rotom has no real relation to any other species, since it doesn't have any evolutions or pre-evolutions. Rotom has a body of plasma. Even though Rotom is classified as being an Electric/Ghost type, it possesses traits that aren't usually normal for something that's supposed to be spirit, such the need to eat and being able to faint and somehow reproduce.

Gender differences

Rotom is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Rotom can creep into electric appliances and short them out.

Behavior

It is mischevous, apparently shorting out electrical appliances just for the fun of it.

Habitat

Most likely electrical appliances. One of them had been discovered inside a TV.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

As with most Electric Pokémon, Rotom probably feeds on electricity.

Trivia

When Rotom is encountered, the music is the same as Legendary encounters although it is not classed as one.

Origin

Rotom appears to be based of off Pulseman, although it may also be inspired by the unexplained phenonemon of ball lightning. Its Pokédex entry brings to mind the legend of the gremlin.

Name origin

Rotom is the word motor backwards. Its name may also come from Rotation and Atom.
