Uxie or Victini on the other hand, could use a fast U-Turn to get a teammate in without exposing it to an attack, or Uxie could use momento. Klingklang just seems bad.

Chou rejected it while saying it has no way of moving to a teammate. Klingklang has access to Volt Switch, mitigating that entire point.
Likewise, there are a ton of reasons why you'd need those resistances. Psychic types are the most common trick roomers, and are the typing of every pokemon he mentioned. Pokemon that abuse that typing are rather scary for trick roomers because they share weaknesses to ghost, dark, and bug. Bisharp, choice locked Heracross, etc, are very deadly. Also keep in mind the shared weaknesses to dark make trick roomers very susceptible to the move pursuit. Common users of the move such as escavalier or houndoom can put the claydols and uxies and cresselias and victinis in check mate position, while klingklang can SWITCH OUT. Pursuit hits u-turners, so they can't even escape from it. Add the resistances to those types WITH good bulk AND volt switch AND offensive potential AND trick room make Klingklang very worthy of a trick room set.
I understand chou rejected it, but I feel like it needs a bit more mulling over. And thank you v0x.
