Rotom is one of the many older generation Pokémon that Trainers can catch in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. The small, round, ghostly creature with a plasma-based body is known to have multiple forms that it can transform into with the right gear. However, you cannot change Rotom forms from the start, and you must meet a certain requirement in order to get the item that allows you to do so.

The Rotom Catalog is the equipment that allows Rotom to change its form into the one you want, and it can be purchased from the Auction House in Port Marinada. Similar to other items that are auctioned on the Auction House, the Rotom Catalog will be in and out of items available for auction, so you may need to check in periodically to obtain the item. In addition, the item is considered rare and you will likely have to bid a high price to purchase it. It’s worth noting that the auction house in Port Marinada is only accessible once you’ve passed the Cascarrafa Gym Test.
After getting the Rotom Catalog, you can change Rotom’s form by accessing the item in the Key Items section of your bag. The form of Rotom depends on the gear you select from the Rotom Catalog and these are listed below.
- Lightbulb – Electric/ghost type
- Microwave Oven – Electric/Fire type
- Washing machine – electric/water type
- Fridge – Electric/Ice type
- Electric Fan – electric/flying type
- Lawn Mower – Electric/Grass Type
Changing the Rotom form also changes its type and grants different moves. Therefore, the Pokemon can be an X-Factor for your team if it lacks a certain type.
