Now that you have Cut, you can visit the [[File:Old Chateau which2F is located in the northern part of [[Eterna Forest]], by the exitDPPt.png|thumb|right|275px|The You will find Gardenia around the entrance who, when you talk to her, appears too scared to go in due to the ghosts. It's worth exploring to find some items. Go up the stairs to find theupstairs hallway with multiple small rooms. (The only wild Pokémon you'll encounter are {{p|Gastly}}, so you might want to bring some [[Repel]]s to save yourself some annoyance.)
Now that you have Cut, you can visit the Old Chateau which is located in the northern part of [[Eterna Forest]], by the exit. Buy some [[Nest Ball]]s from the Pokémart in Eterna City then backtrack to Eterna Forest, because the Old Chateau is home to {{p|Rotom}}, and the first one-off encounter in the game. You'll find Gardenia near the entrance who, when you talk to her, appears too scared to go in due to the ghosts. Rotom aside, the Old Chateau is worth exploring to collect the items inside it. Go up the stairs to find the hallway with multiple small rooms. The only wild Pokémon you'll encounter here are {{p|Gastly}}, so you might want to bring some [[Repel]]s to save yourself some annoyance.
 
From here, use the first door on your left to reach a room with a TV. During the Nighttime hoursnight (8:00 PM to 3:59 AM), a Pokémon called {{p|Rotom}} can be found here, hiding in the TV. Unlike in {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}, where you could only find it post-once the [[National Dex]] has been obtained, here youit can findbe itfound and captured right now. Since there isare no in-game TrainerTrainers who usesuse Rotom, you will need to face it here at some point for it to be counted as seen in your [[Pokédex]]. It is at Level 20 and isn't that tough. Unless you want to wait until later in the game, when you can get some better [[Poké Ball]]s, your best Poké Ball option at this point is the [[Poké Ball#Nest Ball|Nest Ball]], available at the Eterna City [[Poké Mart]]. It has a very low [[catch rate]], so this will be tedious. Remember to '''save the game''' before fighting Rotom so that if you fail in some way, you can just turn off the power to reset or perform a [[Soft resetting|soft reset]].

Head upstairs and into the main hallway, and save the game before interacting with the TV which Rotom has possessed. Rotom is not very tough, so take care to whittle its health down with flying-, bug-, or poison-type moves. As Rotom is only level 20, Nest Balls will have the same catch rate as Ultra Balls in this encounter, so send it to [[Sleep]] or [[Paralysis|Paralyze]] it, then use your Nest Balls to catch it.
