Rotom Phones have been a part of Pokemon lore for a while now, and you receive one right at the beginning in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. It comes in the standard red case, just like previous generations.
Customization is a large aspect of Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, though, and you’re probably wondering how you can switch up your phone case to try something different from the typical red color. Before you go spending all your Pokemon Dollars and League Points, here are a few free cases you can get.
Where To Get Free Rotom Cases
In order to get your first free Rotom Phone cases, you will have to unlock the city of Mesagoza. This is right at the beginning of the game, so you will most likely already have this area available to you. You can start by arriving into the city using any of the three Pokemon Centers surrounding Mesagoza. If you take Mesagoza (South), however, it will be a straight shot to the location we are looking for.
When you arrive in the city, you will want to go right towards the entrance up the first flight of stairs. Standing nearby to a pole and a few Combees will be a woman wearing pink pants and sunglasses. Approach her, and she will offer to ‘study your Rotom Phone.’ Say yes, and she will ask about where you were in your past life. The four options for this include Hisui, Galar, Sinnoh, and Kanto.
These four options will only show up for you if you have played particular Pokemon games on your Switch in the past.
Hisui Rotom Phone Case
For this phone case, you will have to have previous save data from Pokemon Legends: Arceus. If you have played this, you can click the ‘Hisui’ option, and you will receive your first free case, called ‘Arc Phone Case.’
Galar Rotom Phone Case
The next phone case comes from having any previous save data for either Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield. If you choose this option, you will receive the ‘Ball Guy Phone Case’ for free.
Sinnoh Rotom Phone Case
If you have any save data from either Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, you’ll be able to get this next phone case. Choose the ‘Sinnoh’ option, and you will receive the ‘Poketech Case’ for free.
Kanto Rotom Phone Case
The last phone case you can receive for free is for those who have any save data for either of the Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Let’s Go, Eevee! games. When you choose the ‘Kanto’ option, you will receive the ‘Pika-Vee Case’ shown above.
How To Change Your Phone Case
In order to use these four new phone cases, you will have to know how to change your phone case in the game. All you need to do is click the left arrow button on your D-Pad, and the outfit selection screen will pop up. Scroll to the very end where it says ‘Rotom Phone.’ Then, you can choose between all the cases you received.
