A lot of people play the game just to “be the best at it”. Pokémon Go wasn’t meant to have a “best player” rather it’s meant for people to get active and go outside, and have something fun to do while doing so. Turn based battles would ruin the flow of the game. The game encourages exercise and moving. Turn based battles would slow the pace down.

It definitely does seem like the game’s main priority is to get people outside, search for Pokemon, and then capture them. On the other hand, the battle was just an inclusion on the side. The battle feature is barebones (no need to repeat the obvious), whereas by exploring you can find shops, look for Pokemon all around the globe then capture them. And meet other trainers to either do battle, trade or simply pass by them.

Also, we realize that just because it has the Pokemon brand on it doesn’t mean the developers have to prioritize the battle feature. But only if the game is intended to have a different focus in comparison to the main series and is NOT meant to be a part of the main series, A.K.A. Side project.
