Rotom isn't a legendary.
I've seen worse, I also used to think Rotom was a legend. I know a guy who thinks freaking Spiritomb and Lucario are legendaries.
Back on-topic after this?
It's stats are pretty average too; until it changes into it's alternate "appliance" forms. In Platinum and games onwards, Rotom can change form by possessing electrical appliances outside of battle. This changes all of it's stats besides HP. It hits a lot harder, it's defenses go up A LOT, and it's speed drops as a price. It's entire stat total is a decent amount higher than normal Rotom though, so it's alternate forms are tons better. Not to mention it's type changes based on what it possesses (as a lawn mower it becomes Grass/Electric type, as a Washing machine it becomes Water/Electric) and gets a usually powerful new move for it's new type like Air Slash, Hydro Pump, or Blizzard. Washing machine Rotom's typing and new move (Hydro Pump) are particularly appealing to the point that it's one of the most used Pokemon in OU these days.

Definitely not Sableye
even if it was sableye I'm sure any potw I typed for it in 2012 would suck so saving it for a l8r date would be better
