Not always true.
Need I remind you of how Ron fought in "Exchange", "Big Brother", and "Stop Team Go" without necessarily using his MMP? In the last, Ron was backing up into a corner away from the temporarily-evil Wegos when he was hit by a blast from the Attitudinator (instantly making him evil). Immediately, he repelled the Wegos and emerged victorious in seconds. This showed that Ron's "buffooneries" were not caused by a lack of skill- for he was an accomplished martial artist while evil- but rather by something else. (The nature of this "something" is debatable, but some possibilities can include a lack of inhibition, more confidence, not being confined to remaining the "comical sidekick", or a mix of these. This is irrelevant to the topic at hand, however.)
Besides, as shown in "Sink or Swim", Ron was fully capable of winning against a villain even before he got his MMP and without engaging in hand-to-hand combat. When first zapped by the Attitudinator, he showed that he possessed a high level of forethought; his problem in using it may be because of a short attention span and an irregular set of priorities. In "Sick Day", Ron was able to make a plan and re-steal Ray X.
Ron can apprehend a villain or accomplish a goal without using his MMP or his "mad running away skills."
