Why? Mold Breaker is a lot more useful than Sturdy.
It's debatable. Mold Breaker is obviously far and away the best ability for KOing Stealth Rock leads, so it's going to be used a lot with pokemon like Articuno. If you don't have an issue with Rocks (most NU players have adapted to building teams not weak to them) it's only other notable use is Misdreavus; I mean Weezing kinda sucks and is pretty uncommon. Considering Sturdy lets you fire off an extra free CB Close Combat at anything, it definitely has its niche. Sawk with Sturdy intact can take down stuff like Rotom-S in two hits while it fails to OHKO with Air Slash.
