Rotom-Wash's strong defensive typing and ability combination allow it to be one of the best blanket rain counters in the entire tier. It is the one of the only Pokemon that can resist the combination of Waterfall, Earthquake and Ice Punch from Mega Swampert, while also being able to OHKO Pelipper and cripple common offensive swift swimmers such as Barraskewda or the aforementioned Mega Swampert attempting to deny a volt switch using Will-O-Wisp. It can also function well as a Defog user due to having an immunity to spikes, however due to not having consistent recovery it may not be able to do this consistently in longer games. Rotom-Wash has just enough stats to be able to function well as a good defensive pivot against many ground, flying and water types in the tier while also having significant offensive pressure due to being able to deal massive damage to common Pokemon such as Landorus-T, Gliscor and Great Tusk. Rotom-Wash's unique stab combination allows it to offensively pressure many of the ground types in the tier that may be preventing it from using volt switch, while also being immune to ground moves due to Levitate. This unique typing and ability combination gives it only a single weakness to Grass, therefore making Pokemon like Heatran and Bulky Mega Scizor extremely good teammates. Pain Split can be used over Defog if the team already has sufficient hazard control to be able to regain health against opponents such as Alomomola. Tera Fairy gives Rotom-Wash a resistance to Dark and Fighting which allows it to more easily check specific threats such as Great Tusk or Barraskewda using Close Combat as well as walling Swords Dance Garchomp, however Tera Ghost can be used instead to wall threats such as Ursaluna and to function as a Rapid Spin blocker and Tera Poison can be used to resist Fighting and Fairy, and to avoid Toxic from threats such as Gliscor. 44 speed EVs outspeeds max speed Jolly Mega Mawile as well as Landorus-T.

Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers / Waterium Z I like Water z, helps you be more consistent into Glisc or Garg and gives them less leeway in what they want to do (you can just roost off hydro damage later or fish for miss), also is much better damage into tran
Ability: Levitate
Tera Type: Fairy/Ghost/Poison
EVs: 248 HP / 216 Def / 44 Spe
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
- Will-O-Wisp / Thunder Wave With Twave you are much better at crippling things like Darkrai Gouging torn etc.; reflect this in move mentions
- Defog/Pain Split

All mentions of “Rotom-Wash” should be “Rotom-W”
Rotom-Wash's strong defensive typing and ability combination allow it to be one of the best blanket rain counters in the entire tier. It is the one of the only Pokemon that can resist the combination of Waterfall, Earthquake and Ice Punch from Mega Swampert, while also being able to OHKO Pelipper and cripple common offensive swift swimmers such as Barraskewda or the aforementioned Mega Swampert attempting to deny a volt switch using Will-O-Wisp Sorry but wash isn’t used as this; it’s not even that good against rain really and that’s not its main role. Instead, try to mention some of the more prominent things it can check, like Torn Msciz and Glisc. Mention how Wisp cripples things like weav, the aforementioned msciz, and mmaw It can also function well as a Defog user due to having an immunity to spikes Mention how it has a good mu into hazard setters like Tran, Mtar, and Lando, however due to not having consistent recovery it may not be able to do this consistently in longer games. Rotom-Wash has just enough stats to be able to function well as a good defensive pivot against many ground, flying and water types in the tier while also having significant offensive pressure due to being able to deal massive damage to common Pokemon such as Landorus-T, Gliscor and Great Tusk. if I’m being honest this is something the intro covers already in terms of what it checks, it also doesn’t really have that much of a noteworthy offensive presence Rotom-Wash's unique stab combination typing this makes it a bit more clear because you can also switch in on most grounds like you said allows it to offensively pressure many of the ground types in the tier, Such as Gliscor, Landorus-T, and Ting-Lu, that may be preventing it from using volt switch, while also being immune to ground moves due to Levitate. [This Rotom-W’s unique typing and ability combination gives it only a single weakness to Grass, therefore making Pokemon like Heatran and Bulky Mega Scizor extremely good teammates.] The bracketed things should be in the teammates section Pain Split can be used over Defog if the team already has sufficient hazard control to be able to regain health against opponents such as Alomomola. Tera Fairy gives Rotom-Wash a resistance to Dark and Fighting which allows it to more easily check specific threats such as Great Tusk Darkrai or Barraskewda using Close Combat Urshfiu-R tusk wants nothing to do with you anyways and Barra using cc is kinda specific since it’s spamming liquid most of the time, shifu and rai are better examples as well as walling Swords Dance Garchomp , however Tera Ghost can be used instead to wall threats such as Ursaluna, Irom Defense variants of Zamazenta, and Swords Dance Gliscor to function as a Rapid Spin blocker like I said before tusk wants nothing to do with you and Tera Poison can be used to resist Fighting and Fairy, and to avoid Toxic from threats such as Gliscor. 44 speed EVs outspeeds max speed Jolly Mega Mawile jolly maw is bad as well as uninvested Landorus-T. Elaborate on teammates and what wash does for them here, you don’t really mention any. You should also put the part of the grass resists here. It struggles with a lot more than grasses. Some examples include: mons to take care of dragons like bolt, mtias, and kyurem. Some examples of how the mons mentioned benefit from wash. Mention wallbreakers that like wash pivoting them in against certain mons. And finally mention how wash needs another water resist because it’s not that good of a water resist nowadays

Put a set credits section, should look like this and has been filled out for you this far. Make sure to add the user links of the people who check your analysis
