After catching a Rotom in Pokémon Sword and Shield, players can swap its form to make it specialize in other types.
Rotom is an electric- and ghost-type Pokémon from the Sinnoh region. It can take on different forms, merging with special household appliances to change its typing and form.
Where can I catch Rotom?
Rotom can be caught in the Lake of Outrage zone of the Wild Area during thunderstorms and rainy weather. It has a pretty low spawn rate, sitting at 2%, but if one spawns, you will definitely see it. It’ll zoom around and blink towards you the second you grab its attention. If it’s not raining, you can change the date to try to get the right weather.
How do I change Rotom’s form?
To unlock the different Rotom forms, simply talk to a man inside of a an orange house in Wyndon. He can be found in the row of townhomes in the city, and he’s in the orange-colored house closest to the stadium. He will reward you with a Rotom Catalog, a neat tool that will help you change your Rotom’s form. It can be found in your Key Items. The forms are as follows:
- Heat Rotom: electric/fire
- Wash Rotom: electric/water
- Frost Rotom: electric/ice
- Fan Rotom: electric/flying
- Mow Rotom: electric/grass
