Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
IVs: 0 Atk / 30 Spe
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
Rotom-Wash is one of the most used and effective pivots in today's metagame. It walls a plethora of threats, especially the new bird on the block, Talonflame. What makes this set stand out is Snatch, something not commonly seen at all. When Rotom is out, many players try to take advantage of Rotom's inability to deal loads of damage and use it as setup fodder. Calm Mind boosters especially - Slowbro, Latias, Clefable, and more. Rotom can steal all those boosts that they try to get, as well as steal any recovery they may want. It's quite amusing when Rotom-Wash manages to 1v1 Clefable, a scenario that many people don't get to see.
EVs are standard, IVs make sure Foul Play and Confusion do minimal damage. 30 Spe is to make sure you "outslow" other Rotom-Wash.
As this Rotom does not have recovery outside of Leftovers, avoid switching it in recklessly to take attacks.
