The metagame in pokemon is trying to focus more on skill and less on luck. The Quick claw, a luck item, ruins the game and could change the outcome of a battle very quickly. Not fair to the player that is playing the game fairly and want to win with skill and items that are fair such as choice specs/band/scarf, leftovers, and life orbs.
It is an item of Chance basically.
