Torment Spray from SM3!

The official Pokemon YouTube channel has revealed a new card, Torment Spray. It’s named after the TM41, Torment, from the video games. It features the Team Skull logo on the spray bottle.

Torment Spray – Trainer
Item

Choose 1 card from your opponent’s hand and reveal it. If it is a Supporter card, your opponent discards that card. If not, put it back into your opponent’s hand.

You may play as many Item cards as you like during your turn (before your attack).

    Kind of cool, but ultimately, at least at first glance, pretty much useless.

    This is great for item blocking decks (disrupts opponents hand, especially because items can't be played).

    Pretty meh. We have VS Seeker first of all, and second of all you can only look at 1 card in their hand... Now, if it was more than 1, the-oh forget it this card is garbage.

    Not bad after a redcard/delinq. Only 1 card in hand and a lot of people would save that draw supporter.

    Other than that.... meh

    To me, this card is a waste of space in deck as it don't really effect much even if VS seeker got rotate out, the possibility for you to pick a supporter card from opponent hand is too low

    This can be NASTY if played with red card + delinquent. So Sylveon-GX will probably run this as a 1 off to just ruin their opponent's day. Other than that i don't think this is going to see that much play.

    This card will be awesome if used with Gumshoos. Gumshoos can tell you if the opponent even has a supporter card in the hand, and if not your gaining knowledge anyway from seeing their hand.

    red card + Gumshoos + delinquent could be a powerful combination if this combo even works.

    It's cool only because it's a Team Skull item. Useless tho

    Why did I expect this to be a hypnotoxic laser clone?

    This card was obviously intended for a format without VS Seeker, so it might end up being alright in Standard.

    I was kind of excited because it means that you can kinda do something about Lysandre and Hex Maniac, but then I remembered they're rotating out anyway.

    Pretty much this - as long as Vs Seeker remains in the game/rotation list, this card's a non-threat.
     
  16. This with delinquent might not be bad. A lot of people try to keep a Supporter or vs seeker when hot by one so that'll I crease he odds of you hitting it.

    I sort of wish this would work on any Trainer card, not just Supporters, it'd probably see a little play then.

    I think there will be a meta deck that'll run this. It'll be a crazy deck, but it might end being like what trick shovel was for Whalelord-EX, to some other Pokémon (Maybe Tsareena-GX?)

    I guarantee you this will be used in Sylveon-GX. Probably not much else though because you need it in your hand as part of a 2 card combo and only Sylveon and Talonflame can bring up specific cards like that reliably when one of the two cards you need to use is your supporter for the turn.

    Wayyyyy too luck based. If you got to see your opponent's hand and pick a Supporter, okay. I do think it will be a oneof in Sylveon but other than that it's a waste of good cardboard.

    MY GEODUDES
    • Tournament---I mean Torment Spray - Eeehh! Lots of decks uses 10-15 Supporters, 20 if the deck is under "Garbophobia". This can be useful in some decks, this prevents people using N, Syca, etc. But the fact that we have VS Seeker today, until August, it's a meh! I think I'll give it 2-3 Geodudes. Neutral for Sylvie it can be good or bad for this deck.
