Why do people say Magmortar is bad?

Just curious

For some reason GF had it in for Magmar and Electabuzz and decided to give them terribad evos that rival Dusknoir in sheer "no" factor.

Still a better movepool than Delphox actually. All it needs is shadow ball.

It's pretty bad. :/ Just look at it's stats. Use it if it's your favorite but most of the time it won't pull it's weight.

I did. I seems to have high special stats and decent speed.

With a physical defense like that in a mostly physical metagame, 83 is far from decent.

It needs more Special Attack. It just barely misses KOs on so many things. It also is slow, and its Defense sucks. It is a decent Mega Venusaur counter with an Assault Vest, and Vital Spirit, though. Mega Magmortar, if it ever becomes a thing, may be decent. Considering the base Pokemon is not that bad, and it has a nice movepool.

Even Flareon can be a decent Special tank. Magmortar's stats don't allow for it to do anything. It misses out on too many KOs and is too slow to sweep, yet it's not slow enough to be good in TR, and it's not bulky enough to be a tank either. Flame Body and Vital Spirit aren't great abilities either.
