If Shineviolite Boldore is so popular, why have I never once seen it online?

So, Boldore has marginally less Special Bulk, and noticeably higher Physical Bulk.

So, when you go online, some little kid using his brother's Ho-Oh gonna see your Gigalith and think, "Rock type, lemme switch into my bro's Kyogre".

Then you're f***ed.

When that kid sees my Boldore, they gonna be like, "what's that thing? Gonna beat my whole team."

Then they ragequit

Aren't evolite set ups pretty much useless when every other Pokemon has Knock Off as default?
