Why is MegaKazam horrible?

Looked at the stats and higher SP. Attack and Speed are great. Why the hate?

Mega Alakazam in itself is a very good Pokemon, BUT first of all magic guard Alakazam is better. Unlike Megazam it also hold an item, It also doesn't cost you your Mega Slot.

As it is there is no reason to use it. It's regular form has a better ability and can outdamage it.
So it's only merits are a bit higher speed and a situational ability.

It's not. Megakazam allows you to run a modest nature and still outspeed most everything, while regular Alakazam is pretty much forced to run a timid nature because of all the new speed threats. Modest Megazam out damages Timid LO.

The difference is almost non existent and won't make a difference in 97% of the cases.
On top of that you lose immunity to all indirect damage making you more susceptible to status and Entry hazards.

Alakazam dies if you tap it on the shoulder, entry hazards dont mean anything unless you want to run a focus sash on it, as for status you only one have to worry about para (and freeze), which magic guard doesn't prevent anyway. Burn and Poison don't matter to it.
