Date Reviewed: 06.16.09

Ratings & Reviews Summary

Modified: 1.75
Limited: 2.00

5 is the highest rating.

OK, this is the second Rotom we have to review…and this is the WORTHLESS one.

Seriously, trade this thing for a pile of magic beans.

90 HP basic that can flip from Lightning to water type, OK, cute.

0 energy attack that removes 3 damage from each of your benched Pokemon. Isn’t there a Nidoqueen that has that as a Body at this point???

2 energy attack that does no more than 30, and flips allowing you to discard.

Add to that a 2 retreat cost.

Not good. At all.


Modified 1.5/5

Limited 2/5 Not even sure if I would “rare draft” it if there were prizes on the line.

That bad.

Wash Rotom

Today, Rotom becomes . . . a washing machine! Very useful for doing the laundry, but can it make a splash in the TCG?

PokePower: Wash shift

Being able to turn into a Water type can be very useful these days with infernape being played. Allows you to add extra damage to your attacks against fire decks.

Attack: Cleanse Away

Being able to remove 3 damage counters from each of your benched Pokémon can be a real bonus, especially if you are facing a spread deck. This is more useful mid-late game, though, and the 2 Energy requirement and use of an attack is a lot of investment at this stage.

Attack: Drain Wash

30 damage for 2 Energy is mediocre at best. The effect of being able to discard cards from the opponent’s hand can be incredibly annoying if you keep flipping heads, though if they have Claydol out, your opponent can usually recover.

Overall it is not a bad card but not great either with very little damage output and a horrible 2 retreat cost which lets this card down.


Modified: 2 (one of the better Rotoms, but hurt by low damage output)
Limited:2.5(Any healing or hand disruption can be very useful)
