Why is BST an important number?

Generally higher BST means better Pokemon but that's not always the case. It's just the total of all base stats but it means nothing by itself.

Slaking has 670 BST and is NU.
Blaziken has 520 BST and is Uber.

You have to take into account movepool, abilities and typing as well.
