Why is Ally Switch so much bp if it is useless?

I mean, really! 48 bp for something you can already do by shifting in a triple/double battle! Is it just because "it looks cool"?

Lol yes its GameFreak logic what do you think. Of course its just for the looks =)
Anyway it can be used in triple battles to take a resisted hit or to move your Pokemon to a position where they can hit the opposing side super-effectively but thats about all.

Ally Switch is pretty useful, if used skillfully..
Difficult and most people would opt to go for a hard-hitting move =) Simpler :D
Um, its the same as clicking "shift".
I'm pretty sure shift only occurs in some cases, e.g. triples where you only have 2 Pokemon left.
