Mow Rotom, The Plasma Pokémon. Its electric-like body can enter some kinds of machines and take control in order to make mischief. Research continues on this Pokémon, which could be the power source of a unique motor. Its body is composed of plasma. It is known to infiltrate electronic devices and wreak havoc.
Look at that grin! Man, this guy knows he's a boss. This is Rotom-C, and its unique move is the powerful Leaf Storm. Grass Electric is also a unique type combination. Compared to Rotom, Rotom-A (appliance) got some seriously improved stats. Way higher defences, higher Special Attack... all it lost was a bit of Speed and its Ghost typing. Rotom-C is the third most popular Rotom form in terms of competitive battling. I personally think it has the coolest design out of them all.
Levitate: Levitate is less important on Rotom-C than other formes as it is only hit neutral by Ground. However, any immunities are nice.
Rotom-C has something caught in its blades
- Leaf Storm
Oh, it's a scarf! Leaf Storm is a Grass type Overheat. It has 140 base power without STAB, but has a cost of -2 Special Attack after each use. However, you'll be switching out a lot anyway, so awesome. Thunderbolt hits nice and hard, as well as being reliable. Hidden Power [Fire] is for Ferrothorn and other 4x Fire weak Pokémon. Hidden Power [Fighting] can deal a lot of damage to Tyranitar, and also hits Ferrothorn. Will-O-Wisp is handy after forcing your Choice item onto something. Trick can completely ruin certain Pokémon, such as walls. Volt Switch allows you to scout and deal damage, using your Choice item to the best of your ability.
Keep your team alive. Great for offensive teams. Reflect and Light Screen effectively double your defences, and last for 8 turns thanks to Light Clay. Leaf Storm hits really hard, and you won't be staying in for long, so it is definitely worth using. Volt Switch pairs really well with Leaf Storm and a lead set like this. Thunderbolt does more damage than Volt Switch, and Pain Split works well with Rotom-C's awful HP.
Substitute uses Rotom-C's resistances well, and protects it from various statuses. Thunderbolt hits hard and is reliable. Leaf Storm hits harder but lowers your Special Attack, so make sure to switch out once you use this. Pain Split keeps you healthy. Hidden Power [Fire] kills Ferrothorn. Hidden Power [Fighting] works well for Tyranitar and company. Hidden Power [Ice] is great for Dragons and Gliscor.
Focuses on Rotom's defensive side. Will-O-Wisp ruins some Pokémon as burn just negates all damage they can do. Discharge can paralyse, which is cool. Rest keeps your healthy, whilst Sleep Talk keeps you attacking.
Will-O-Wisp burns and cripples physical sweepers. Pain Split keeps you healthy as it works like recovery 99% of the time with Rotom's awful HP. Discharge can paralyse and is only a little weaker than Thunderbolt. Leaf Storm hits very hard.

Charge, Rain Dance, Signal Beam, Snatch, Thunder, Thunder Wave
Double & Triple Battle Options
Discharge, resists Surf, immune to Earthquake, Trick, Rotom-C could be worse. However, it doesn't really have anything useful outside of Discharge. It's very similar to normal Rotom, in that respect.
You want to be able to benefit from Scarf Volt Switches, crippling Tricks, that sort of thing. A Pokémon that can be dangerous in one turn works well for this. You want to be able to eliminate Rotom-C's most common counters as soon as possible, so you can just Volt Switch all day. As you will be switching a lot, run a Rapid Spinner like Starmie. Rotom-C does a good job at removing Pokémon like Jellicent and Skarmory, so running Pokémon to take advantage of this is a good idea. Rotom-C, like all Rotom formes, appreciates entry hazards, so a Spiker wouldn't go amiss.
Countering Mow Rotom
Standard Pokémon like Blissey, Chansey, Latias, Latios all counter Rotom-C well. They do a good job with most Rotom formes. Just watch out for Trick. Heatran and Ferrothorn both do really well, considering Heatran is more or less immune to anything but Thunderbolt, and Ferrothorn isn't hurt by anything but Hidden Power [Fire] and Will-O-Wisp. Because Rotom has so few offensive moves, if you can resist the main ones, you should be fine. Steels in general do well. Hydreigon resists anything Rotom-C has except for Hidden Power. Grass Pokémon do very well, as long as they can deal damage to Rotom-C too. Virizion and Celebi are the main choices here. Overall, Rotom-C isn't the best forme available, but it doesn't make it the worst, or even bad. It has some helpful resists, and Leaf Storm is always useful. However, it is inarguably inferior to Rotom-H and Rotom-W, but much better than Rotom-F and Rotom-S. It does have the coolest design though, so yeah... Rotom-C is pretty beast.
