Introduction With the introduction of Platinum, GameFreak granted Rotom 5 alternate forms, often referred to as Rotom-A or Appliance Rotoms. Each of these boasted a new Stat distribution, as well as a specialty move for each different form. However, despite the changes in forms, all Rotoms held onto its Electric/Ghost typing. With the advent of Generation 5, Appliance Rotoms forgo their Ghost typing in place of a new typing to match their signature move. Despite this change in typing, all Rotoms seem to retain the Levitate ability.

Also, Rotom's 3 immunities allowed it to easily switch in to many targets, but without its Ghost typing Rotom loses all but its Ground immunity. Although, Rotom now loses its Pursuit weakness, making it easier for many sets to counter or just survive Tyranitar and Scizor better. Things to notice Rotom-Frost can have near perfect neutral coverage with STAB BoltBeam with Thunderbolt and Blizzard, but will often be unreliable because of Blizzards lackluster accuracy. Rotom-Heat now counters Scizor better, resisting both of its STABs and no longer being weak to Pursuit. Rotom-Wash has both excellent Offensive and Defensive typing, being only weak to Grass and only resisted by Pure Dragon, Pure Grass, Dragon/Electric, Dragon/Grass, and Lanturn.
