Pokemon Go Team Go Rocket Battles are Way to Difficult and Frustrating

Trainers, after a Charged Move or switch, there is no attack delay from Team Go Rocket or Team Leader and this makes the Team Go Rocket battles more difficult and almost impossible to beat.

As per Niantic and Pokemon Go, there is a bug causing Team Go Rocket to attack immediately after throwing a Charge Move or switching Pokemon and there is no attack delay.

As per Niantic:

After a Charged Move or switch, there is no attack delay from Team GO Rocket or Team Leader.

Issue description: After a Charged Move or a switch, Team GO Rocket and Team Leaders are expected to pause before they begin fast attacking the Trainer again. However, the pause does not happen, which may increase difficulty in battling.

According to many Pokemon Go players, Team Go Rocket is much tougher now, and impossible to beat. Players say the Team Go Rocket battles are way too difficult, frustrating, boring, and ruining the game.

Niantic and Pokemon Go acknowledged the Team Go Rocket bug and said that this will be resolved in the upcoming update v0.225.2.

Are Team Go Rocket Leaders harder to beat? Have you had any strange things happen with them or is it just us? Do you think they should nerf Team Go Rocket?
