Grab a Modest for a RP set
Oh, are we talking about RP Genesect now? In that case, let me quote my thoughts on it, as well as that on Genesect's most popular set: Choice Scarf.
^Couldnt have said it better myself XP. I have loved the RP set since day one, while most others were still raging about the CS set. It does everything the CS set does, it is just faster and requires one turn of easy set up. However, the minus one moveslot taken by RP does give one a nasty case of 4MSS
Rock Polish Genesect : Quite threatening
However, I don't know if it has been mentioned or not, but if Genesect does not receive any form of a boost, it will honestly not be that great.
If it carries Giga Drain over ThunderBolt, Tentacruel, from my experience, was able to play with the thing all day.
If it carries T-Bolt, I'm pretty sure Rotom-W Bulky Varients, can WoW and Pain Split and pretty much laugh at RP Genesect too :/
Even if Genesect doens't get the SpA boost, standard Rotom is taking 68,5% - 81,32% from a LO bug buzz. This means that you can burn it, but that won't prevent Gene from killing your Rotom next turn and quite possibly take out other 1-2 Pokemon, until LO+burn damage consume its HP.
This is why I prefer T-Wave on my specially-defensive Rotom-W, since all the mons that it's supposed to check (namely QD Volcarona, Genesect, Tornadus-T) and Pokemon that it lures (Lati@s) are crippled by paralysis more than burn.
Plus paralysis is such an amazing utility; even if you end up paralyzing Ferrothorn it's okay, because 25% chance of immobility cuts down in its spike-stacking capabilities. fp wins you games - Wisp misses loses games.
Paralysis on Ferrothorn is a bad situation on teams without fire attacks or strong fighting attacks. Aside from getting a stronger Gyroball, one of the few options rain has to deal with ferrothorn is burning it. While, I'd rather not get paralyzed with my Ferrothorn if I'm facing a rain team where their only way of dealing with Thorn is by burning it I would gladly take a paralysis.
Seconding this. Back when I ran a balanced team, SpD Rotom-W was super clutch for checking a bunch of annoying threats but I was getting tired of getting my ass handed to me when I missed a Hydro Pump vs Genesect, or losing out to Giga Drain Genesect, etc so I started running T-wave and it alleviated most of my problems. Nearly all of the Pokemon that commonly switch into Rotom-W (Latis, Dragons and even Deoxys-D) HATE Thunder Wave. Not burning Ferrothorns isn't that big of a deal, and the paralysis can actually come in handy at times.
