Competitive should be double battles more often at least. Not too sure about rotation or triple.

Anywaaays, I'm going to have to go with Surf. In-battle it's powerful, good accuracy, and doesn't take two turns in order to attack. The only downside to it is that it hits more than just the opponent during double/triple battles but that's ok. They don't happen too often especially not after you beat the storyline unless you hunt for them.

Outside of battle Surf is used to cross bodies of water. I like to walk/run/bike everywhere so in regions like Hoenn in which you can't get to one side of the map to another without surf (i'm talking to you Route right of Mauville) then surf is a fabulous HM to have with you. There is also getting to Mahogany Town in Johto that pretty much requires surf so it makes that easier as well.
