    Competitive Rotom-C Discussion

    While it may only be RU, Rotom-C is more than viable in the BW OU metagame, as I have demonstrated before. It's good, unique dual STABs and large movepool allow it to function well as not only the common Volt-Turn abuser, but even as a support Pokemon. While some consider it outclassed by Rotom-W, its washing machine counterpart, it has the ability to function quite differently. Now, let's look at some sets:


    Rotom-C @ Choice Scarf / Choice Specs | Levitate
    Modest Nature | 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Leaf Storm | Thunderbolt / Trick | Volt Switch | Hidden Power Ice / Hidden Power Fire

    This is the standard Rotom-C set. Discuss.

    Rotom-C @ Leftovers | Levitate
    Timid Nature | 36 HP / 252 SpA / 220 Spe
    Leaf Storm | Thunderbolt | Volt Switch | Hidden Power Fire

    My own Weed Whacker set. Discuss.

    Rotom-C @ Leftovers | Levitate
    Calm Nature | 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
    Leaf Storm | Volt Switch | Will-O-Wisp | Pain Split

    Standard support Rotom-C. Discuss.

    As once can see, Rotom-C is actually a quite viable Pokemon in the BW OU metagame, while it is also underrated. Please feel free to leave your comments upon the lawn mower here. Discuss.

    "Yes." and "It should be OU." seem to be similar answers. Still, Rotom-C is a viable answer to some of OU's largest threats, such as its own alternate forme Rotom-W, Jellicent, Gastrodon, and Gyarados. Still, for all of Rotom-C's perks, there's a reason it's not in the OU tier. The dragons, Scizor, Heatran, and Volcarona abound in OU make Rotom-C's life there that much more difficult. Overall, if you can erase its counters from the picture of battle, Rotom-C won't disappoint.

    Rotom-C counters the Rain very well, and can beat Gastrodon, which Rotom-W cannot. I'll add more later.
