Rotom-H @ Leftovers

                    Trait: Levitate
               EVs: 240 HP / 248 SAtk / 20 Spd
                 Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
                   - Hidden Power [Fire]
                      - Discharge
                     - Volt Switch
                     - Shadow Ball

Dat toaster oven.
HP Fire is my personal preference when it comes to STAB.
Discharge can do some damage, but is mostly there for the fact that it can paralyze.
Volt Switch is STAB and scouting.
Shadow Ball is coverage and it's nice when it gets that lucky SP DEF lower.

I believe you have to keep the move overheat to stay in heat form, right?
No he can stay without it

Rotom-H @ Leftovers

Trait: Levitate
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Overheat
  • Volt Switch
  • Hidden Power [Ice]
  • Pain Split

One of the best counters to the Therian forms. The ones in the rain: Thundurus-T and Tornadus-T, as it resists BoltBeam from Thundurus, Hurricane from Tornadus-T, and can really be 2HKOed by Focus Blast from Specs Thundurus-T. Overheat is STAB, Volt Switch allows you to switch and gain momentum, HP Ice is used to nail the rain Therian forms, and Pain Split allows for healing, usually.

Choice Scarf or Specs Set

Rotom @ Choice Spec or Scarf
Ability: Levitate
Evs: 4 hp/ 252 Sp.Atk/ 252 Spe
Nature: Timid (+Spe,-Atk)

  • Thunderbolt
  • Overheat
  • Trick or Volt Switch
  • Hidden Power Ice or Shadow Ball

Thunderbolt has a great STAB with Rotom-H and can even deal with some bulky water pokemon. Overheat can dish out serious amounts of damage to any grass pokemon that resists any other move. Trick is just Trick, You can cripple the opponent with it and allow you to change moves. Choice Spec works the best with Trick and Scarf works best with Volt switch. Shadow ball covers Psychics while HP ice covers dragon types.

Bulky Rotom

Rotom @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
Evs: 124 Hp/ 252 Sp.Atk/ 132 Spe
Nature: Modest (+Sp.Atk,- Atk)

  • Pain Split
  • Thunderbolt
  • Overheat
  • Will-O-Wisp

Pain split gives some form of recovery but it is not reliable. Thunderbolt is good as always, KOing Bulky water pokemon. Overheat destroys anything that is weak against it but also deal strong damage to the neutral. Will-O-Wisp cripples any physical attacker that want to end your streak(except for anyone with guts).

Microwave Rotom @ Leftovers

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 252 HP / 60 Def / 128 SAtk / 68 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Volt Switch
  • Overheat
  • Thunder Wave
  • Hidden Power Grass

A somewhat bulky variant, Thunder Wave allows Rotom to outspeed the foe, HP Grass is for annoying ground types that recists the Thunder Wave.
Volt Switch is for switch while doing damage.
Overheat is STAB, i mean you don't really have any choice.

Thunderbolt (STAB+Water coverage)
Electro Ball (STAB+Water coverage+Speed EVs)/Volt Switch (STAB+Water coverage+Switch out)
