Wondering where to find Rotom in Pokemon Legends Arceus? This rare creature and its various forms can be quite difficult to get, but our location guide should help.

Rotom is one of the most unique Pokemon in the Hisui Pokedex. It can change into multiple forms that are based on items of household furniture – like Frost Rotom, which is inspired by the humble refrigerator.

Before you can change Rotom’s form, though, you’ll need to catch one out in the wild. That’s no easy task, as Rotom has a very low spawn rate in Legends Arceus and can only be found in one specific location.

Below, you’ll find the location you need to visit for the best chance to get Rotom and instructions on how to unlock all of its forms.


Where to find Rotom in Pokemon Legends Arceus

There’s only one location where you can find Rotom in Pokemon Legends Arcus, and that’s Sacred Plaza in the Coronet Highlands.

We’ve marked Rotom’s spawn location on the Legends Arceus map below:

This is where you can find Rotom in the Coronet Highlands.

Although this is the only area that Rotom will appear, it’s never guaranteed that you’ll find one as it has an incredibly low spawn rate. If it doesn’t spawn here, head back to Jubilife Village and return once again.

We managed to find Rotom hiding inside a shaking wooden crate, so keep an eye out for them. If you do see a crate, throw one of your Pokemon at it and be prepared to battle before trying to catch it.

Rotom can change into five additional forms in Pokemon Legends Arceus. To do this, you’ll need to purchase mechanical items from Ginter, one of the merchants in Jubilife Village.

Here are the items needed to change Rotom’s forms:

  • Rotom Fan (Electric/Flying) – Mechanical Pinwheel
  • Rotom Frost (Electric/Ice) – Mechanical Cabinet
  • Rotom Heat (Electric/Fire) – Mechanical Box
  • Rotom Mow (Electric/Grass) – Mechanical Circular Saw
  • Rotom Wash (Electric/Water) – Mechanical Tub

These mechanical items will be sold at random by Ginter, so check back at different times to get them all.

After purchasing a mechanical item, it will appear instantly in your quarters. Approach one and interact with it, where you’ll then be given the option to change Rotom’s form.
