The Dex Can't Help It! (Japanese: ロトム、フォルムチェンジが止まらない！ Rotom, Can't Stop the Form Change!) is the 57th episode of the Sun & Moon series, and the 996th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on January 11, 2018 and in the United States on May 12, 2018.
Rotom Dex is excited to house-sit while Ash and the professors go shopping. But chaos ensues when a washing machine is mistakenly delivered—and there’s a Wash Rotom inside! Somehow, the Wash Rotom ends up inside Ash’s Pokédex, and Rotom Dex takes its place in the washing machine. After a series of accidental form changes, and even some time spent inside a TV, Rotom Dex yearns to be back inside the comfort of the Pokédex. It finally succeeds, but not for long—after a big shock from Pikachu, Rotom Dex accidentally inhabits the entire Pokémon Center!
