After the most recent update, many trainers have complained that Pokémon are much harder to catch. Not only did they complain about the ability to catch Pokémon, they also added that they were getting robbed of XP and also it was harder to throw.
These trainers were right and have finally gotten a response from Niantic about it. Niantic has confirmed the bug and claims they are working on fixing it right away:
Trainers, a new bug affecting throw accuracy increases the odds of escape and omits the XP bonus. We are working on a fix, stay tuned…

Niantic has seemed to be responding to bugs much faster and it’s a promising start for a better game. With this bug in the works, hopefully the newest update will address a ton of issues and fix many other things trainers have complained about.
