Pokemon Go: How to Get All Rotom Forms

Pokemon Go: How to Get All Rotom Forms ...

Rotom is a legendary Mythical Pokemon in practically every pokemongame, and that hasnt changed in Pokemon Go, except in the several forms that fundamentally alter how Rotom is used in battle.

Rotom is a mischievous creature that has five variations, as well as a basic Electric/Ghost-type form. It is possible to possess different household appliances, as an alternative.

Each of these forms alters Rotom's moveset, stats, and type-matchups, meaning that certain options are more useful than others depending on which team you're running or what Pokemon you're facing. Rotom Wash is the best example, having been a staple of competitive single battles since generation five.

If you didnt participate in Pokemon GoFest 2020, you'll likely have to wait a while before you can encounter the nasty Plasma Pokemon again. Even two years later, Niantic has only released one other Rotom form in the game, although the first form is technically not present in the game.

As more Pokemon Go versions become available, here are some details on how you may obtain each different form of Rotom, as well as any special research.
