  1. FIRST, Make sure that the time on your DS is set to 8 pm to 4 am. That is the only time range that is considered "night" in the game. If it is 8pm to 4am in your time but your DS is set to a different time, IT WILL NOT WORK.
    ------ Changing your DS time stops some time-based events in D/P/Pt for 24 hours.

    Then, enter the Old Chateau and go into the hall at the top of the stairs. Go to the room to the left of the one right in front of you. Press A on the TV between 8pm and 4am in your DS's time and select the option to "hit the TV". Rotom will come out. It's low level (level 15 I think) so use low level Pokemon to weaken it, or use Nest Balls.

    Rotom, though a rare Pokemon, is not a "unique" Pokemon, so you can catch it any number of times.

  1. Are you searching for it like a normal wild pokemon? Because that's not the way to find it. You have to check the television on one of the rooms at the second floor(4th room on the upper part). It only works at night, as you already know.

  2. Yeah, what LordCooler said. Wait, you completed the sinnoh dex without seeing rotom? Unless you've gotten one from a trade, that's not possible...unless your not playing platinum.

  3. Also the key has nothing to do with catching rotom, you use it in the city right next to the old chatue in the galactic base at the far left next to a book shelf

  4. First after turning your DS on, go to teh small DS icon at teh lowest center of touch screnn. Chang e the time into between 8:00 PM to 4:00 am. Go to the Old Chateu Wlak to the 2nd Floor into the room with the tv. Tlak to it and it'll ask you to thump or slam it!!!(whatever. Then ctach ROTOM at LV.20.
