I'll stop with the FSG references. Mega Audino is basically a lower tier Blissey or Chansey. Amazing bulk, decent special attack, access to calm mind. However do keep in mind it takes up a mega slot. Mediocre in the long run.
Why is this flagged?
Maybe because it's a bit opinionated, as KRWL said.
Why wasn't it flagged in 2019 then

Honestly mega Audino wasn’t the best, but it was ok, hear me out.

I do agree that soooo many other Pokemon deserved a mega evolution over Audino, flygon included, I honestly have no idea why Audino was chosen. However, in competitive you’ll find that if used effectively (especially in double battles) Audino can be a decent support Pokemon. Audino really isn’t the best attacker but in double battles it is a good support, although i’ll Admit that Pokemon like blissey and even gardevoir a way better, but it’s always a nice surprise to have a competitive audino/mega audino come and confuse your whole team with sweetkiss, heal itself with draining kiss, and use substitute instead of just fainting! (Sorry I got really beaten down by one recently), and it has a decent hp.

Really though this is just a matter of opinion, and as much as I might want to sometimes, I can’t undo the fact that audino has a mega evolution, so we can just hope that other Pokemon have mega evolutions in the next gen.

Just because a Pokemon is surprising doesn't mean it's good. Opponents who prepare for Chansey or Tapu Fini can just as easily defeat an Audino. Sweet kiss is a bad move this generation because it has low accuracy, and confused Pokemon have only a 1/3 chance to hit themselves. Healing moves are not very useful because opponents can easily overwhelm an Audino by double-targeting it. Audino also needs to hold a mega stone and prevents teammates from mega evolving.
