If you don't find an induction rule that suits your needs, write one :)

lemma nat_plus2_induct [case_names Zero One SucSuc]:
  assumes "P 0"
  and "P (Suc 0)"
  and "\<And>n. P n \<Longrightarrow> P (Suc (Suc n))"
  shows "P (n::nat)"
proof (induct n rule: less_induct)
  case (less x) with assms show ?case
    by (cases x, simp) (metis less_Suc_eq_0_disj less_Suc_eq)

  fixes x y h :: nat
  shows "\<exists>x y. 2*(x::nat) + 5*(y::nat) = (h::nat)+4"
proof (induct h rule: nat_plus2_induct)
  case Zero ...
  case One ...
  case (SucSuc n) ...
