I was wondering, Would Rotom be good for a rain team? If so What form? (I'm thinking wash form) what should my EV's, attacks, and strategies be? Thanks!

And for the record this is more of a Pokemon question than a team question so I think It belongs here (IDK tho, I'm new here)

Best answer

Yes Rotom-W is very good in the Rain.


Item: Choice Specs
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 248 HP / 24 SAtk / 236 SDef
Bold Nature
- Trick
- Hydro Pump
- Pain Split
- Thunder

With Rain up Rotom gets lots of nice perks. He gets STAB with Hydro Pump and Thunder becomes impossible to avoid / miss.
Rotom-W has imense Defense and Special Defense making it bulky meaning the Perks last even longer.
Ik my answer is simular to Mrkijani's but I wanted to make some adjustments that I like.

Rotom-Wash is extremely good on a rain team.

A good moveset for Rotom-W in rain is
Hydro Pump
Volt Switch
Fourth move of choice, I like Pain Split but there are some other options.
Hydro Pump is STAB and gets a wicked boost from rain.

A nice EV spread would be,
252 SAtk / 252 Spe / 4 SDef or 4 HP

Strategy is tough because it depends on your opponents team and your team.

Hope this helps!!
