It has mediocre bulk and only 81 base Attack, which means it needs a boost from Swords Dance. Problem is, it has low bulk so it can't set-up. Unburden boosts it's Speed, but it's already pretty high and the boost will only let it ouspeed a few more things. It doesn't work as a good Defogger either. Finally, Ubers are a lot more powerful. Look at Zacian. Its much better. Also, Ubers were used on a lot of teams for them to get kicked out of OU. Hawlucha doesn't see use on a lot of teams and thus isn't fit to be an Uber.

Well thanks. Could it be better in doubles with another tank using follow me and boosting hawlucha's attack?
Also flying press isn't the best. High jump kick/close combat or brave bird is better
Yea, also that's why it combos well with rillaboom. Grassy seed boost def and makes it tanky-er and let's it setup
I imagine Hawlucha would be good on a Baton Pass team, but I don't think those are popular anymore
