Rotom-C is a good option on Electric teams because of its Grass typing along with its access to a powerful Grass-type STAB move in Leaf Storm, making Rotom-C a reliable answer to the many Ground-type Pokemon that Electric teams dislike dealing with. Pokemon such as Hippowdon, Seismitoad, and Gastrodon are all easily set up on by Rotom-C, and other Pokemon such as Mamoswine and Excadrill have trouble revenge killing it due to Substitute. Nasty Plot allows Rotom-C to serve as a setup sweeper by beating Pokemon such as Hatterene, Bisharp, and Excadrill after a boost, while Subsitute also allows it to set up on status users such as Seismitoad, Pokemon that are unable to deal significant damage to Rotom-C such as Toxapex, and forced switches, as well as helping against Bisharp's Sucker Punch. Thunderbolt is valuable coverage that hits Pokemon such as Corviknight and Toxapex for super effective damage, as well as Pokemon like Aegislash, Bisharp, Jirachi, Salazzle, and Galarian Weezing neutrally. Leaf Storm is Rotom-C's stronger STAB attack that hits the aforementioned Ground-type Pokemon and can beat bulkier Pokemon, such as Mew, Hatterene, and Gardevoir, with a Nasty Plot boost. Although its bulk is not the best, Rotom-C can serve as an answer to certain offensive Pokemon using its typing, such as Barraskewda and Seismitoad under rain, and set up on other hard hitting offensive Pokemon such as Indeedee and Kyurem-B that threaten to OHKO or heavily dent it.

The entirety of Electric appreciates Rotom-C's ability to serve as a reliable answer to Ground-type Pokemon, seeing as Electric teams struggle immensely against them otherwise. In return, Sticky Web setters such as Galvantula and Vikavolt are good partners for Rotom-C, as they patch up its middling Speed and allows it to outspeed Pokemon such as Choice Specs Indeedee, Choice Scarf Gardevoir, Choice Specs Gengar, and Mimikyu, paving the way for it to sweep. Choice Band Zeraora is a fantastic wallbreaker that can take on faster Pokemon such as Hydreigon, Cinderace, and Dragapult and is a great partner for Rotom-C, forming an offensive core with it. Zeraora's ability to wallbreak early-game and beat Dragon- and Steel-type Pokemon with Play Rough, Plasma Fists, and Close Combat is fantastic for Rotom-C to sweep weakened teams, or vice versa. Toxtricity is another special attacker that can beat Grass-type Pokemon such as Whimsicott, Vileplume, and Roserade for Rotom-C. Alolan Raichu is a powerful wallbreaker that can outspeed and beat threats such as Choice Scarf Galarian Darmanitan, Choice Scarf Gengar, and Choice Scarf Excadrill for Rotom-C under Electric Terrain. Pincurchin can set up Spikes and Toxic Spikes as well as use Memento to weaken the opponent and bring Rotom-C in for it to set up and sweep. Morpeko is amazing against Psychic and Ghost teams and can bring Rotom-C in with Parting Shot while the stat drops help it set up. Morpeko can also break screens, which limit Rotom-C’s sweeping potential, with Psychic Fangs.

Our bad for letting this sit for so long, but lets update stuff for Post-Home shall we?

As general updates per Pokemon Home content:
-Add Zeraora (and maybe Pinchurchin) somewhere as a teammate.
-Zeraora especially should have a mention for being able to threaten Dragon and Steel teams, also considering Sticky Web support.
-A mention of Kyurem-B somewhere, perhaps as a replacement for Duraludon as that "stronger offensive Pokemon".
-It may be worth removing Dracozolt as a team option here as Zeraora does its function, but way better and with greater consistency.

As a check to the remainder of the analysis:
-Mamoswine is a shaky Ground-type to state as a Pokemon that has "trouble revenge killing it", since that is contingent on the fact that Rotom-C already has a Substitute up. Perhaps change the wording of that sentence?
-What is meant by "Gardevoir at +2?" Please clarify the boost.
-Not completely sure how Hydreigon is threatened by Choice Scarf Dracozolt under Sticky Web as it has Levitate. I'd either change the Pokemon example or rearrange the wording to make Dracozolt threatening Hydreigon plausible.

QC 1/2

Maybe mention something like Jirachi or Aegislash that Thunderbolt hits since Electric doesn't struggle with Corviknight and Toxapex.

Mention Choice Scarf Excadrill as a Pokemon Alolan Raichu outspeeds and threatens in terrain.

I'd personally remove Lanturn, I don't think it has a place on Electric teams anymore. If you want to keep it change the "last but not least" part because you talk about Alolan Raichu and Pincurchin afterwards.

Would add Morpeko in teammates, pretty strong wallbreaker and great against Psychic and Ghost.

Nice work, QC 2/2.

Overall p good, but watch out for inconsistent pronoun usage :). Some liberal changes here are meant to merge connected thoughts.

Rotom-C is a good option on Electric teams because of its Grass typing, (RC) along with its access to powerful Grass-type STAB in Leaf Storm (or "a powerful Grass-type STAB move in Leaf Storm"). With these two traits, making Rotom-C is a reliable answer to the many Ground-type Pokemon that Electric teams dislike dealing with. Pokemon such as Hippowdon, Seismitoad, and Gastrodon are all (easily?) set up on by Rotom-C, (clarity; AC) and other Pokemon such as Mamoswine and Excadrill have trouble revenge killing it due to Substitute. Nasty Plot boosts its Special Attack and (dex) allows it Rotom-C to beat Pokemon such as Hatterene, Bisharp, and Excadrill after a boost, while Subsitute also allows it to set up on status users such as Seismitoad, Pokemon that are unable to deal significant damage to it Rotom-C such as Toxapex, and forced switches, as well as helping against Bisharp's Sucker Punch. Thunderbolt is valuable coverage that hits Pokemon such as Corviknight and Toxapex for super effective damage, as well as Pokemon like Aegislash, Bisharp, Jirachi, Salazzle, (AC) and Galarian Weezing neutrally. Leaf Storm is Rotom-C's stronger STAB attack that hits the aforementioned Ground-type Pokemon and can beat bulkier Pokemon, such as Mew, Hatterene, and Gardevoir, (AC pair; optional but clears up which is boosted) with a Nasty Plot boost. Although its bulk is not the best, Rotom-C can serve as an answer to certain offensive Pokemon using its typing, (AC, since what the list refers back to is not immediate) such as Barraskewda and Seismitoad under rain, (AC closing) However, its shaky bulk does mean it shouldn't try to and set up on other stronger ("harder-hitting"? stronger in what sense?) offensive Pokemon such as Indeedee and Kyurem-B that threaten to OHKO or heavily dent it. (subj merge)

The entirety of Electric appreciates Rotom-C's ability to serve as a reliable answer to Ground-type Pokemon, seeing as Electric teams struggle immensely against them otherwise. In return, Sticky Web setters such as Galvantula and Vikavolt are good partners for Rotom-C, (AC) as they patch up its middling Speed and allows it to outspeed Pokemon such as Choice Specs Indeedee, Choice Scarf Gardevoir, Choice Specs Gengar, and Mimikyu, paving the way for it to sweep. Choice Band Zeraora is a fantastic wallbreaker that can take on faster Pokemon such as Hydreigon, Cinderace, and Dragapult, making it and is a great partner for Rotom-C, (AC; orig had pronoun issues) and forming an offensive core with it. Its Zeraora's ability to wallbreak early-game (AH) and beat Dragon- (AH) and Steel-type Pokemon with Play Rough, Plasma Fists, and Close Combat is fantastic for Rotom-C to sweep weakened teams, or vice versa. Toxitricity Toxtricity is another special attacker that can beat Grass-type Pokemon such as Whimsicott, Vileplume, and Roserade for Rotom-C. Alolan Raichu is a powerful wallbreaker that can outspeed and beat threats such as Choice Scarf Galarian Darmanitan, Choice Scarf Gengar, and Choice Scarf Excadrill for Rotom-C under Electric Terrain. Pincurchin can set up Spikes and Toxic Spikes as well as use Memento to weaken the opponent and bring Rotom-C in for it to set up and sweep.
