So let's say Pidgeotto and Lucario are in a double battle with Pikachu and Smeargle. Lucario uses Drain Punch before Pidgeotto can use Return. Drain Punch KOs Smeargle, and the experience levels Pidgeotto up. Pidgeotto learns FeatherDance and forgets Return. It is Pidgeotto's turn. What happens?

During an in-game Double Battle, after a move is issued, if that Pokémon levels up before its in-battle turn and replaces the move currently awaiting execution with a new move, the new move will be used instead of the old one.
Multiple turn moves such as Outrage will continue to be performed even if the move is deleted between turns. This can happen in both single and double battles.
