    Disable shouldn't be included, in my opinion. We're almost trying to include Disable in almost every CAP movepool...

    I think Mirror Move should be allowed, its not very competitive, but still interesting.

    I think something like Copycat would fit any of the three arts more than Mirror Move, while still retaining a similar effect

    No to Torment. If it's counters can't hit it twice in a row with a super-effective move then it turns just about any 2HKO into a 3HKO which just seems too powerful to me.

    I for Slack Off. But against Bulk up and other moves that boosts the user.

    They're more than one way to combat a Pokemon. Zapdos can Toxic/Thunder Wave/HP Flying him if he tries to Torment it's Thunderbolt and that if CAP6 can survive the first TB. Some Starmies/Slowbro carry electric move as well as their stabbed move so they're not up a creek without a paddle. Faster foes can just Taunt CAP6 before it even make a move. It's not that hopeless.

    BTW, I'm neither for nor against Torment.

    This would make a lot other OU Pokémon broken. Seriously, there's no way Torment can end up being broken - or even competitive, for this concern.

    -Torment - Yes, haven't seen anyone use this move really good yet and would be nice to see if this one maybe could.

    -Magic Coat -
    Yes

    -Mirror Move
