Tormenting a Truant

If the target has Truant, will Torment end up having no effect? Yenreb 20:23, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Torment + Encore

What will happen if a Pokemon who has been hit with encore is hit with torment, or vice versa?

I haven't personally tried it, but I believe it will have to use Struggle every other turn until the encore ends. Meeve 18:47, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Two Scraggys in the TM list

I think someone might've typed Scraggy twice on the list of pokemon that learn torment from a TM. Scroll to 559 / 560. 559 should be Scrafty, however I'm not changing it because I cannot confirm if Scrafty can learn Torment.

Just a heads up. (Leadergo 00:05, 25 February 2012 (UTC))

Two-Turn Moves

I've rewritten the Torment description to be more accurate with when Torment is used in a turn; sometimes, it will begin on the very next turn if Torment goes first. However, what I have not tried is using two-turn moves like Hyper Beam, Fly, Dig, etc. I presume it will apply to Fly, Dig, etc., but using Hyper Beam will generate a rest period; will Torment and the rest period in effect be the same turn, and Hyper Bean useable again immediately after the rest?
