Rotom Effects & How To Beat

|Points Given When|
Rotom is a contested target which both teams will fight over. Note that only the team that deals the last hit will take control of Rotom. Additionally, the Pokemon that gets the last hit will also obtain 20 Energy Points.How To Play Pokemon Unite
Capture To Quickly Score Points
|Points Scored Upon Reaching The Goal||20 Points|
|Instant Cast Time|
Rotom is one of the special boss Wild Pokemon that can spawn during a match. When captured, it will head over to an opponent's goal and support the player's team in taking control of it . It also causes all scoring to be instant, removing the required cast time.Scoring Guide - How To Score Points
Rotom Will Score 20 Points When Taking Control Of A Goal
Aside from obtaining Energy Points after capturing Rotom, it will also score another 20 points when successfully taking over a goal. Note that Rotom will be targetable while it's walking over to a goal, giving the other team a chance to defeat it before it reaches its target.
Heads Immediately To A Goal
After capturing Rotom, it will immediately head to the nearest available goal in the top lane. You should escort Rotom to its destination to make sure that it is not defeated by the enemy team along the way.
Rotom Spawn Time & Location
Found At The Top Lane
Rotom spawns in the uppermost section in the middle of the top lane. This is a fixed spawn in Remoat Stadium so you can always find Rotom in the same spot.Top Lane Guide
Map Location Will Glow When It Spawns
Rotom will spawn at 7 minutes on the clock, and is thus not available from the start. The area where it spawns will glow yellow and have a short countdown indicating its appearance.
Spawns @ 7 Minutes Alongside Drednaw
Rotom also has a fixed spawn time: when a match reaches the 7 minute mark, it will spawn along with Drednaw in their designated spots.
Despawn During The Last 2 Minutes
Rotom and Drednaw will despawn after Zapdos appears in the last 2 minutes of the match. You'll have a 5 minute window when Rotom is available, so make sure not to let it go to waste!
When To Fight Rotom
Rotom VS Drednaw
We suggest prioritizing Drednaw over Rotom as the EXP boost for all players is far more important than the early game points. The extra points gained from Rotom won't matter if you lose the final Zapdos fight! Rotate bottom right before the 7 minute mark.
Destroying The Top Goal Is Not Always Ideal
It might not always be the best idea to destroy the top lane goal early! Doing so will grant the enemy team access to 3 new wild Pokemon that they can use to grind for EXP and will also move the Vespiqueen & Combee colony closer to their side. Finally, leaving the top goal up can give you an easy scoring opportunity in the final 2 minutes of the game, when points are worth double!Check Out More Info On The Current Meta Here
Fighting Rotom Tips
Use Rotom For Surprise Lane Push
Rotom will remove scoring cast times when it reaches a goal. However, it will only target the nearest goal at the top lane. You can use Rotom for an unexpected lane push, but it's okay not to prioritize it as you can get the same effects when you defeat Zapdos.
Escort Rotom To The Goal
If Rotom is beaten before it can get to the nearest Goal, your team will not get the instant casting time buff. A Defender in particular is great here since it can soak up damage from enemies while Rotom is moving.
Counter Enemy Team Rotom
On the other hand, if you lose the fight over Rotom, your goal should be to defeat it before it can get to a goal. Deny the instant casting time buff from the enemy team!
Have Players Dedicated To Pushing Enemies
It's recommended to have at least 2 teammates dedicated to getting Rotom. One player's role should be to disturb enemies and push them back from damaging Rotom, preventing them from getting the last hit.
