This is actually a couple of days late, I realized that I didn't blog about it
Finally, in my eleventh try for the win in Double Battles line in Battle Subway, I won ;w;
I play White 2, so I battled Emmet.
What caught me by surprise is that Emmet would actually change the Pokemon he sends out first - last time I reached the final, he sent out Crustle and Durant first (and I never got to KO either of them). This time he sent out Garbador and Durant instead.
Honestly I think that worked for me in the end. Dealing with Durant and his Crustle with Sturdy at once would have been a disaster for me. Perhaps Terrakion taking the Iron Head was alright, since Arcanine had a chance to KO that Durant afterward. (Durant knows Rock Slide.) xD
I took my Terrakion, Arcanine, Sigilyph (that knows Heat Wave), and a Technician Breloom named @Zeb; . (Oh yes, Zeb, the Breloom survived to the end. He was awesome, especially when dealing with Crustle. Bullet Seed hit four times, that was lovely luck :3)
There was some luck factor involved, as Crustle's Stone Edge missed. Bright Powder works 0_o
If I consider challenging the Super line, I really should look into planning teams. Double battles have different strategy needed and with the right strategy, they can be deadly ;_; Double Rock Slide + Sky Drop team, anyone? (Aerodactyl & Braviary, iirc) It's worse that Sky Drop isn't banned in-game xD
