Is it considered a legendary pokemon? Because it has the legendary music attatched to it, I originally thought it was an event pokemon but the music has sort of swayed me, also Gardenia being there has striked it as odd.

It looks ace though and although it has a crap attack stat, it defense is ok. Has anyone ever took the time to train it up properly, so far i have got it to level 32 and has some ok moves.

Rotom isn't legendary, i successfully bred it with Ditto.

Edit: Looking at the Psydex Ditto is the only poke it can breed with, So i'd say while it might be rare, i think its just a 'One Off' like snorlax used to be in the older games.

I don't think Rotom can be considered Legendary.
The Legendaries often rule over something important for the world or life. Some examples are: Groudon it the Pokemon of land, Kyogre is the Pokemon of the Ocean, Dialga is the Pokemon of Time, and so on.

But Rotom is the Pokemon of what? of Electronics? I don't think so. And for that reason, Rotom is not a Legendary, because it doesn't rule anything.

legendarys tend to have some story attached to them, y'know, like there's a whole town that banters on about clues to them (Regi' in Hoenn). Or that they seige a city (Grouden and Saphire in emerald) or that they threaten all life on earth (Dialga/Palkia in D/P) or anything else guarded by a tunnel/dungeon/has a film focused around it.

(sorry if that was long windeded, i got carried away...)

ok but you guys are saying that the other new legendaries rule something because i dont think Arcues or darkria own anything so i dont know and also you guys are talking about the legendaries that on mostly on the covers of the games what dose latios or latias own...nothing so im not saying i dont agree with you but i just saying that your theory is wrong

also i dont think rotom isa legendary because he is very easy to get not like the others

Arceus: God Pokemon, the Creator of everything.
Darkrai: Nightmare Pokemon, he gives nightmares to people.
Cresselia: Good Dreams Pokemon, the counterpart of Darkrai.
Latios/Latias: They protect the city of Pokemon Heroes movie and I think that they protect the Soul Dew too.

Manaphy is a legendary and you can breed it with Ditto.

But I don't believe Rotom is a legendary, as, like the others said, it has no significant role much. And its stats are not that huge, either...

I actually differ from everyone else. Legendary isn't synonymous with good. Why would legendary music play if it isn't legendary? Snorlax didn't have it in previous games. Manaphy can breed with a Ditto and is still legendary. Mewtwo doesn't rule over anything and is legendary. Grant it he has a story, though. Heatran doesn't really have a story and neither does Giratina. And whoever said something about Darkrai being the ruler of nightmares isn't correct. Just because he has that ability to appear in nightmares/cause them doesn't make him the "ruler".

While Manaphy can breed, you can't make more Manaphies by breeding it. Only Phiones. Rotom on the other hand, can actually be multiplied. That, and it has horrible stats. It also has no backstory.

-Having an history shouldn't make a Pokemon a Legendary.
-Even if they don't have an story, we all know that Heatran and Giratina are Legendaries. Maybe a movie about them will be made in the future.
-I don't know why Mewtwo is considered legendary, he's is just a result of an experiment.
-Darkrai is obviously the ruler of nightmares, he has the Bad Dreams ability and 1 of its moves is Nightmare, also he's the one who is causing nightmares to the child in New Moon(?) Island.

And, when you battle Cresselia, the music of a normal wild Pokemon is played, not the Legendary Pokemon music.
That makes of Cresselia a non-Legendary Pokemon? Of course not, and that show us that the background music doesn't always indicates who is Legendary/common Pokemon.

- Your right which is my point
- How do we all know Heatran and Giratina are legendaries? Like someone else said, they could be a 1 time only thing. I'm not saying they aren't legendaries because IMO they are but they have nothing more to make them legendary compared to Rotom
- Neither do I which was my point
- So I guess anybody with the move nightmare is also the "ruler" of nightmares? Would that make Snorlax the "ruler" of fat since his ability is thick fat?

I'm not telling you your wrong I'm just saying you can't classify a legendary based on what everyone here is saying.

Heatran is legendaries because in the official guide it says

Heatran - "The battle zoe landmass is dominated by a huge volcano that puts victory road to shame. Battle master trainers and meet the LEGENDARY pokemon that live at it heart."

Giratina im not sure

Giratina - "You'll find the new sendoff spring area on the east side of route 214 (south of veilstone city). Search for a new pokemon in the Turnback cave at the spring's basin."


Btw i dont know how pokemon who you can only catch one of is supposed to be a legendary when there is about 15 + in the 4 regions, there should be few so then they are really something to talk about. Also Arceus, releasing a god pokemon, (sarcastic) well played pokemon, why not just ruin the whole other games in the future. Soon as its released no one will be able to take it down when a plate is attached, As type and power of moves will be boosted, Plus its strongest poke in history.

I am not sure either but i dont think it can deserve the status LEGENDARY

With that word come power which rotom does not have much of

and most legendaries start at lvl50 since the first pokemon games

so I think it is a special pokemon but not a legendary

although Rotom is found in a special event, so are other pokemon - Beldum in RSE, Eevee in FRLG, Riolu in DP.

The fact that it can breed to create more Rotoms really proves that it's not a legendary, as other legendaries can't breed, except Manaphy with breeds to get Phiones
