Is Hitmonchan a good competitive Pokémon?

I've been doing some Wifi Battling and noticed how quite a few people have Hitmonchan on their team. Is it a good Pokémon to use competitively? Why?

It is OK competitively because it learns the all three elemental punches at level 36, but there are so many better Fighting type Pokemon with much better stats and a duel type.
It has very a very high Sp. Def but no HP to back that up (which rules out tanking) but with its high Attack, 'meh' Defense and 'meh' Speed, it can be used as a Physical sweeper/staller.
So basically its all up to you to decide which Fighting type you want for your team and since there are better Fighting types like Conkledurr, Lucario etc., I doubt you'll pick Hitmonchan.
