Is there a particular reason to run Waterium Z or Iapapa over Leftovers? a z crystal seems a bit sub optimal for a defensive mon, and Iapapa seems less consistent than leftovers.

Iapapa Berry is better for sure because Rotom-W usually never stays in for more than 2 turns. The amount of health you gain from Leftovers is miniscule compared to a 50% boost to your HP once you take a strong hit such as Latios’ Draco Meteor, Greninja’s Dark Pulse, etc. It’s hard to verbalize what I’m saying. I’d just get some games with Iapapa Berry Rotom-W and you’ll see what I mean.

Mega meganium
Please remove Waterium Z. It doesn’t do anything outside of wasting your Z-crystal slot and making you easier to wear down. Please deslash Pain Split and mention it (don’t slash though) with Defog. Giving up WoW is a no-no.

An offensive set with Waterium-Z could be mentioned in OO instead of the main set, I know it's received some positive feedback in metagame discussion but I don't really think it deserves its own set yet, being a relatively unexplored set.

I see absolutely no reason to run Waterium-Z on a defensive set.

imo, this set should be another rotom-w set (giving it two sets -- defensive and offensive, essentially). it's a different take on rotom-w and it works quite well, esp given how popular ferro is and how strong offensive z-hydro is. idfw defensive z-hydro tho, as vertex said.
