Game Freak logic. Also it would make it stupidly powerful. Have you considered +6 Attack, Grassy Glide, and a Life Orb?
Why should it?
It has fist but cant use elemental punches.
Plus, if you look at most mons who can brum they are... kind fat
Lol(snorlax, azu, etc.)

-Giga Blade X

That is completely true. Here are calcs against literally the tankiest Pokemon in the game.

252+ Atk Miracle Seed Rillaboom Wood Hammer vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Shuckle in Grassy Terrain: 67-79 (52.7 - 62.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Grassy Terrain recovery
This is Rillaboom WITHOUT any attack boosts.

+6 252+ Atk Miracle Seed Rillaboom Wood Hammer vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Shuckle in Grassy Terrain: 262-310 (206.2 - 244%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Do you see now?

From a balancing standpoint, this would be completely ridiculous. Rillaboom gets Grassy Glide and an Ability that gives said move automatic priority. Give it a Life Orb or Sitrus Berry or the such, and it can and will go on a rampage.

+6 252+ Atk Life Orb Rillaboom Grassy Glide vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Toxapex in Grassy Terrain: 441-519 (145 - 170.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

That's a an OHKO against one of the tankiest Pokemon in the game.

It also has the chance to 2HKO Heatran and 3HKO Corviknight/Ferrothorn (with Grassy Glide! Imagine Drain Punch!). Isn't that ridiculous? How does this make any sense, balance-wise? It doesn't. Game Freak doesn't care much about balance, but it does care a bit.

It also doesn't really have much of a belly. While it has a literal drum, and its entire thing is drumming, look at that chest. Kind of small, no?

Hope I helped!

4x resist? Isn't it just neutral?
:/
I don't know why I said that lol, my bad.
Rillaboom smacking its stomach with its drumsticks would be cursed as **** lol
"It also doesn't really have much of a belly. While it has a literal drum, and its entire thing is drumming, look at that chest. Kind of small, no?"
How Charizard can learn Belly Drum since it isn't fat?
Rillaboom is pretty fat but doesn't learn Belly Drum. Charizard is not that fat and it can still use Belly Drum because it actually has a Belly to Drum.
