Well, fake out usually isn't a problem. I anticipate that more than two-thirds of the time, the fake out users go for my Latios and then set up with their other Pokemon, which is usually either a Zapdos or a Cress. Tyranitar looks like an excellent counter to it, but the fake out users are usually fighting types in my case, but I think I can manage. I also struggle with Trick Room, is there any way-- never mind. I anticipate on getting a Thundurus soon, if all goes well. He can taunt/encore the opponents to death. Is there anything else to note?

Would a Latios be a good partner, considering his capability to take out fighting types, or would Garchomp be a better one, because he can stay in longer?
I'd just like to say this again, because it was lost in the last page and wasn't ever answered.

Keeping Latios lets you easily deal with most Fighting types, bar Scrafty and a few others. Tyranitar can act as a half decent TR counter, he dies to most TR attackers but works well against common setup-ers like Cress. Thundurus does not have Encore, though he does have Taunt. Whimsicott has both, but remember that TR teams will be expect disruption from those two and may play around accordingly. Maybe you should post a draft of your team in the RMT Other Teams forum, it seems like presenting the full team their would help you get better answers.
 
I have a question that regards double battle mechanic.
I read that in Gen4 when move like Rock Slide (which has only 75% power in doubles) KOs an opponent Pokémon, it hurts the second Pokémon with 100% power. Is this "bug" in 5gen games?

It's not. The only way that a multitarget move hits for 100% power is if there is only one target for the attack when it is used.
So moves like Blizzard or Rock Slide will only be 100% if there is only one opponent remaining to be hit by it, while moves like Explosion and Earthquake would require one target remaining between the two opponents and your ally.
