Opponents using more than two Shields
Issue description: 
Some Trainers have observed their opponents using three or more Shields. When there are latency issues or when one or both Trainers has a weak connection, using a Shield before an opponent’s Charged Attack may not properly consume the Shield, which can result in more than two Shields being used in a single Battle.
Issue status: 
Investigating
Lagging during matches
Issue description:  
We have heard reports of latency issues experienced during the middle of Battle when played with a weak Internet connection. This can prevent Trainers from using Fast Attacks upon reconnection, or Trainers seeing a significant amount of damage dealt suddenly.
Issue status: We are implementing improvements in an update currently rolling out (0.165.2) that should resolve some of the latency related issues. Please note that playing with a weak connection or a connection that disconnects will still cause the Battle to lag and respond slowly.
The lower portion of the screen is sometimes unresponsive during Battle
Issue description: 
The lower portion of the screen can become unresponsive during Battle, leading the player to be unable to use Charged Attacks or switch to another Pokémon when tapped in the unresponsive area. 
Issue status: 
Investigating
The Battle page is not refreshing after GO Battle League matches or after actions are taken on the page
Issue description
: The Battle page is not refreshing after each GO Battle League match, after claiming rank rewards, or after clicking “Battle Now.” This can lead to incorrect rank, stats, and available rewards to be displayed on the page.
Issue status: Resolved in 0.165.1
Distance to charge a Battle set does not round down
Issue description
: The distance to charge a Battle set does not round down, which results in accrued distance of 4.95km up to 5km displaying as 5.0/5km with the “Battle Now” button still locked behind a PokéCoin purchase.
Workaround: Please continue to walk a little further (up to 0.1km) until the “Battle Now” button can be clicked without a PokéCoin purchase.
Issue status: Fix in an upcoming update
Clicking “Claim Rewards” for a completed Battle set on a following day results in one fewer allowed Battle set
Issue description
: After completing a Battle set, waiting to click “Claim Rewards” until the following day results in the set being counted towards the following day’s maximum number of daily Battle sets.
Workaround: Please claim your rank rewards on the day you finish the set.
Issue status: InvestigatingSource: Official Pokémon GO support page
