I’m posting different forms of Rotom in different posts. Today’s post is Frost Rotom.
Frost Rotom is a refrigerator possessed by Rotom. It’s the only Rotom form that has a frown. In Gen IV, it was Electric/Ghost, but in Gen V, its type has been changed to Electric/Ice (all the other forms of Rotoms changed types). This is the second time a Pokemon’s type has been changed, the first being the Magnemite family.
The type Electric/Ice is unique, although I’m not sure how good it is, because only Ice’s weakness to Steel has been neutralized; although Rotom has Levitate, so its weakness to Ground is negated. Of all the Rotom forms, Frost Rotom has the second most number of weaknesses and the least number of resistances.
Stat-wise, Frost Rotom has higher stats than Normal Rotom, despite it technically not being an evolution. It lost some Speed, in exchange for more of everything else except HP; notably, it has a lot more defenses than Normal Rotom.
