So if on turn 1 you win the RNG and go first, on turn 2 you will go second, on turn 3 you will go first, and turn 4 you will go second. If you lose the coin toss and go second on turn 1 then you'll go first on turns 2 and 4 and second on turn 3.
I do NOT know if the RNG happens at the start of the fight or at each pet swap, I have not tried testing it in that much detail. The 1 time I was in this situation was vs Zao in the tourney, I think I had 2 raptors that were the same speed and the alternation stayed constant thru him killing my 1st raptor. I went 2nd then 1st, then died, new raptor came in and when 2nd then 1st... But that's a fuzzy memory and frankly w/o a LOT of repeats it would be hard to tell if initiative is rolled on each pet swap until/unless the order changed (and I've seen 50% chances happen 4-9 times in a row vs Whispering Spirit's Moth using Moth Balls way too often).

I've noticed if it's a choice between that surge attack and another 'this comes first move' then the surge attack goes first.
