I have assembled a team and although it can often work well, I always seem to have a problem with rotom-w in online play. I tried Energy Ball but it does not seem like enough. Any good ideas to eliminate similar foes easily?

Since it's a sand team, you could easily put Gastrodon on your team. Rotom-W can't really do anything to it, unless it tricks it, but otherwise both its STABs are useless, since it absorbs h-pump and can't be hit by v-switch, etc. So you could replace Jellicent with this as the special wall:

Sassy / Calm
252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Storm Drain
- Earthquake / Earth Power
- Ice Beam / Scald
- Toxic
- Recover
it's not always black and white but your heart always knows what's right #TeamUnova
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

Your best bet is probably to use Gastro like forever said. If you dont like gastro some other good pokemon to use are Ferrothorn and Celebi.
Realaxed@Leftovers@Steel Thorns
Leech Seed/Stealth Rocks
Protect/Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave

Ferrothorn can take any hit and set up enrty hazzards ot hit with a powerful powerwhip. Although you should be wary that some Rotom carry HP fire and Ferro hates being tricked or burned.

Modest@Leftovers/Life Orb@Natural Cure
Nasty Plot
Giga Drain
Hidden Power (Fire)

Celebi can take any hit from rotom well except HP fire which is only a 2 hit KO with specs. The reason I suggested nasty plot set is that it wont mind recieving a choice scarf or specs from rotom. Celebi also has the added bonus of having natural cure and is a special attacker which means it wont mind being burned.
