No! Well, not unless I'm battling a team of 6 flawless shiny Haxori. Disconnecting is dishonorable, and deprives the winner of a well-earned win.
People who does this makes me angry. Take the loss like a man.

I never disconnect... ever. Usually my non perfect ived pokes with good evs can take it but when I loose, I take it like a man. I hate people who disconnect... would have had a lot more wins.

In any case, I wouldn't disconnect from a Wi-Fi battle unless I could identify hacked Pokemon (and I mean "hacked" like Spiritomb with Wonderguard and 999 in all base stats) beyond the shadow of a doubt or if the opponent broke a very important (to me) rule like Sleep Clause.
I have to be honest, I did once, but it was because I was sure the guy had hacked the Pokemon. It wasn't because I was losing (only). He had the three Kanto starters, all shiny. In the battle, his Blastoise survived an Outrage from my Haxorus, and even though my Haxorus has full EV in Spd, plus a Speed Scarf, he still out sped me with his Blastoise and KO'd me in one hit with Water Spout. It wasn't very effective, and he was less than half health.
I have claimed Chance by UVERworld!
I never, ever, ever, disconnect from a battle. I have however, disided to forfeit and run on multiple occasions. If people want to forfeit the battle, then they should do it the right way, by clicking the forfeit/run button on the bottom of the screen.
On wi-fi, when I know I'm licked, I press the Forfeit button and give them the win they deserve.

Those people beat you fair and square, like it or not. Let them have their win.

Nope. I'm not like most morons out there.
Nope. Whenever my defeat is inevitable, I forfeit the match rather than shutting down my DS. Those people have earned their wins fair and square.
I have disconnected accidentally due to battling in the rain (both real-life weather and in-game).
But I always forfeit if I feel like I can't win.
If you go on Wi-fi, you're instantly saying that you're willing to accept the fact that some people will be sore losers and disconnect their game upon seeing their ideal strategy not work or something. Expect at least some people to make you "suffer for their suckyness". :/
I do dissconnect sometimes, usually when i don't want to play anymore or when i'm up against an obviously hacked team.
I don't choose the bible, I stick with Lenin and Marx - i spit intelligent arts. /Strike Back.
I battle on Pokémon Online instead of Wifi, but I never forfeit there because I'm not a coward. I take inevitable defeat like a man.
I love my cute little Machop!
Come on, you know Machop is cute! I mean, who couldn't love those endearing eyes? That adorable face? That loving embrace?
Just don't call it cuddly or else it will hurt you.
I hate it when people do that to me, so I extend the same courtesy to them. I don't do it because I know how awful it feels.
But, I do now feel like a hypocrite. If I'm on RM, and I encounter a team that has a damn good chance of being hacked (i.e. completely shiny, with a latios, hydreigon, volcarona, terrrakion probably with flawless ivs across the board), yeah, I'll dc because no way am I going to fight something like that.
When I first started wifi battling, I pretty much lost every game. My loss record was no doubt, beautiful. I pulled my head out of my ***, I changed my strategies up, tried different Pokemon combination, and rose above my continuous loss record. That, there, was a great feeling.
