Finding Rotom in Pokemon BDSP, Here’s How!

To find and unlock the forms of Rotom, you may need to follow some steps below!

Step 1: Complete the Sinnoh Dex

All you have to do is to complete the Sinnoh Pokedex. Fortunately, it can be performed with one copy of the game in one playthrough. To see one of every Pokemon and not catch them, it can be achieved during the course of the normal game.

However, if you find it hard to see the legendary box of the other copy, either Palkia or Dialga, you may need to speak with Cynthia’s grandmother. Then, she will show it to you. Afterwards, you can go back to Professor Rowan. He will then upgrade your Pokedex for you that allows you to catch almost 500 Pokemon in total including plenty of new legendaries.

Step 2: Go to Old Chateau

Once you complete the Sinnoh Pokedex, you can go to Eterna Forest. Then, head toward the Old Chateau that can be found near the top of the zone. To get into the area, you can use Ciut and then walk up to the building.

On the second floor of the Old Chateau, you will find a room with a TV. Make sure to interact with it and you will battle Rotom. Since Rotom is only level 15, one ultra ball can do it well.

Okay, that’s how to find Rotom. Afterwards, you can change the form of Rotom.

How to Change the Form of Rotom?

If you successfully capture Rotom, a secret key will be available in the same Room. However, this key is very vital to the next step. After you find a secret key, you can take Rotom and the key to the Galactic HQ in Eterna City. On the bottom floor, you will find an area that you can interact with that will suddenly open to reveal a new room.

Afterwards, you need to go inside and will find a room that is full of appliances. However, those appliances will be able to change Rotom’s forms. You can then interact with all of them to add to your Rotom Catalogue item, making Rotom can change between those forms without having to come back to this building.

Well, it is a shame that you cannot do this earlier in the game. However, it is still a unique Pokemon that you can pick up towards the end of your journey. Here’s a list of different appliances that will allow you to change the Rotom’s forms:

    • When Rotom does not possess an appliance, it will be Electric/ Ghost-type Pokemon.
    • When Rotom possesses a Microwave oven, it will be Heat Rotom with an Electric/ Fire-type Pokemon.
    • When Rotom possesses a Washing Machine, it will be Wash Rotom with an Electric/ Water -type Pokemon.
    • When Rotom possesses a Refrigerator, it will be Frost Rotom with an Electric/ Ice-type Pokemon.
    • When Rotom possesses an Electric Fan, it will be Fan Rotom with an Electric/ Flying-type Pokemon.
    • When Rotom possesses a Lawn Mower, it will be Mow Rotom with an Electric/ Grass-type Pokemon.

Those appliances will easily make up for the fact that Rotom has no evolutionary form. So, it can only be changed by revisiting the room full of appliances at any time.

For more information, Rotom has the ability to possess a special Pokedex and become the Rotom Pokedex in Generation VII. It also has the ability to possess a smartphone which doubles up as a Pokedex and becomes the Rottom Phone.

In the same generation, Rotom can also be used in Rotimi terminals and Drone Rotoms. The Rotom’s form can be changed at will depending on the game:

    • In Rotom’s Room in the Team Galactic Eterna Building,
    • The storeroom in Shopping Mall Nine
    • Rotom’s Room in Silph Co.
    • On the second floor of Professor Sycamore’s Lab in Lumiose City
    • In Professor Birch’s Lab in Littleroot Town
    • In the basement of the Pokémon Research Lab on Alola’s Route 1
    • With a Rotom Catalog in Galar.

Moreover, Rotom will change back to its normal form in Generation IV when it is taken into the Union Room or Wi-Fi Club, or when deposited in the Day Care. Well, in Generation IV, Rotom is an Electric/ Ghost-type Pokemon regardless of its form.
