I think it should be completely up to the trainer whether or not they choose to use their disobedient Pokémon in battle. If they didn't think the Pokémon could handle it and be controlled enough, why would they send them out? And as for the "bystanders could get hurt" point, whilst true, it should then be up to the trainer to return the Pokémon to its Pokéball once it starts rampaging like this so that no one can get hurt. Really I think it's down to the trainer if they want to risk losing from not having trained a Pokémon correctly because if it's not listening to the trainer, the likelihood is the Pokémon isn't going to win the battle.
