COMMENTS
The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. See A295053 for a guide to related sequences.

FORMULA
a(n+1)/a(n) -> 2.
EXAMPLE
a(0) = 1, a(1) = 3, b(0) = 2, b(1) = 4
a(2) = a(1) + 2*a(0) + b(0) = 7
Complement: (b(n)) = (2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, ...)
MATHEMATICA
mex := First[Complement[Range[1, Max[#1] + 1], #1]] &;
a[0] = 1; a[1] = 3; b[0] = 2; b[1] = 4;
a[n_] := a[n] = a[ n - 1] + 2 a[n - 2] + b[n - 2];
b[n_] := b[n] = mex[Flatten[Table[Join[{a[n]}, {a[i], b[i]}], {i, 0, n - 1}]]];
Table[a[n], {n, 0, 18}] (* A295146 *)
