Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Oh, hello there.  Pokémon nicknames right?  I nicknamed a Rotom “RedRum” after the famous scene in the horror movie “The Shining”.   Rotom (in Japanese:  ロトム  Rotom) is a dual-type Electric and Ghost Pokémon.  It was originally named Rotom because that name is “motor” spelled backwards. Spelling and saying words backwards …  pretty creepy right?  Just like in the horror movies.

Voice of Tony: “Always name your Pokemon Danny”.

Rotom is also able to change its form and type when the ghost “possesses” certain appliances.  In the Kalos region, you can find the appliances on the second floor of Professor Sycamore’s Lab in Lumiose City.  I put together a team of six Rotom forms and then battled the Kalos Elite Four and Champion.

Rotom forms

When Rotom possesses a microwave oven, it becomes Heat Rotom, and is Electric/Fire type.  I nicknamed this type “Hot Pocket” after the tasty microwaveable stuffed sandwiches. I have also used the names “Duke Nuke” and “Nuke” for this form.

When Rotum possesses a washing machine, it becomes Wash Rotom, and it Electric/Water type.  I nicknamed it “Spin Cycle”.  Sometimes I just name it “Maytag”.

When it possesses an electric fan, it becomes Fan Rotom.  I nicknamed the Electric/Flying type “Air Raid”.  I once used “Windy City”.

Rotom becomes Frost Rotom, an Electric/Ice type when it possesses a refrigerator.  I named it “Ice Point” after the temperatures 32 degrees Fahrenheit/ 0 Celsius.  I have also named them “Mr. Freeze” after the Batman villain, and “Tastee Freez” after the frozen treat. “David Frost” is another possibility.

My favorite form is when Rotom possess the lawnmower, and becomes Mow Rotom, the Electric/Grass type.   I like to name them “Buzz Cut” or “Weed Whacker”.  Speaking of whacking …

"Come play with our SHINY Pokemon Danny."

“Come play with our SHINY Pokemon Danny.”
