I feel like a noob.

Ok, so here is my predicament.
4th gym in Pokemon Black and White.
Dewott - Lv. 28 Revenge, Razor Shell, Water Pulse, Fury Cutter.
Zebstrika - Lv. 29 Flame Charge, Thunder Wave, Charge, Spark.
Petilil - Lv. 26 Giga Drain, Synthesis, Sleep Powder, Magical Leaf.
Tirtouga - Lv. 25 Aqua Jet, Ancient Power, Crunch, Dig.
Drilbur - Lv. 11 Cut, Strength, Rapid Spin, Mud Slap
(He's just an HM slave, but ironically the perfect Pokemon to take her down, shame I went for a statistic based team and not a type advantage team).
So you can see my predicament.
Stuck on the 4th gym because she type trumps me in every way.
My tactic so far has been trying to land Ancient Power on her Emolgas, and then making it to Zebstrika to use Dig, but her Pokemon are too fast, as well as super effective against Tirtouga because he's a primary water type.
So I end up being knocked out by her second Emolga.
ie. "Use Ancient Power"
"She sues Volt Switch"
"I go down to 1 hp thanks to Sturdy"
"I hit the other Emolga with Ancient Power instead"
"She sends out the first Emolga"
"I die because sturdy wont kick in twice in a battle".
And of course I can't resort to anything else, she has full type coverage over me, she can take out Dewott and Tirtouga with ease thanks to electric attacks, and she can take out Petilil with Flying and Fire attacks.
I could remove the HMs from Drilbur and then train him, but raising him from 11 to 30 is going to be some ridiculous feat, and still I have the problem with not being able to hit the Emolgas because as far as I'm aware Drilbur doesn't learn Rock moves until really late..
I'm at the end of my tether.
Has anyone got any good strategy for her that doesn't involve me training Drilbur 30 levels, or training some other random Pokemon several levels.
Edit: Zebstrika isn't any use either, it comes down to who can Flame Charge the most, and it's HER Zebstrika.. Because she has endless Hyper Potions and a computer AI calculating the damage I'd do...
