Torment Details + Use
|TM41 Torment Move Details|
Torment makes the opposing Pokémon incapable of using the same move in consecutive turns.
In competitive play, Torment is only useful in very specific situations. Torment can be used to prevent a Choice item user from attacking, which will likely force a switch out.
However, Torment relies on accurately predicting your opponent’s held item.
Some common Choice item users in Gen 7, like Greninja and Tapu Koko, can also run alternative sets. Using Torment on a Pokémon that isn’t holding a Choice item will make you lose momentum.
Torment won’t have much use in a main story playthrough, so its real value is in PvP battles.
