Rotom

Rotom is an Electric/Ghost type Pokémon introduced in Generation 4. It is known as the Plasma Pokémon.

Rotom has 5 alternate forms introduced in Pokémon Platinum. Rotom transforms when it possesses different household appliances: an oven (Heat Rotom), a washing machine (Wash Rotom), a refrigerator (Frost Rotom), a fan (Fan Rotom), and a lawnmower (Mow Rotom).

In Generation 4, all Rotom forms were Electric/Ghost type. From Generation 5 onwards, they each have their own secondary type.
