For what it's worth, Malta based Swordfish had been making night torpedo attacks on Italian convoys. Not sure they were ever trained for it, but they got pretty good pretty quickly. I would think the pre-war FAA *did* train for night torpedo attacks. Bismarck was hit in appalling weather, although not technically at night. But, I agree, unless Nagumo lost his never after a lucky hit on one of the Japanese carriers, the next day wasn't going to be a good one for the RN.
