Goth is really good, no doubt, but it's not quite "Oh lol I can auto-kill anyone on your team" like you're making it out to be.
You just pointed out on an earlier post why she is efficient at one of her best jobs with namely dealing with walls. Because of their nature she does not have to care too much about her speed or possible incoming attacks from them putting that much of a dent on her. Now with regard to her 95 SpA it is mediocre but this is why SPECS helps her to do her job better at brute forcing these walls or defensive pivots. And with the coverage she has available to her as pointed out by LonlyNess she does do her job quite well at covering common walls or defensive pivot typings.
I would actually argue I find Goth's switch in opportunity to be rather reasonable given precisely the increasing offensive nature of the metagame there are threats which more often than not pressure me into the defensive with ease, Heracross for instance is one mon you do not want to net a kill for obvious reasons so I will more often than not switch to Qwilfish. Yes, you can play around her to a degree with very well timed double switches but same could be said for Goth trappers. In fact it is their advantage in this situation given that the defensive pivots or walls that Goth aims to take down are more often than not dealing with more than just one threat so they will switch in rather often giving trappers more chances to increase their probability catching the mon.
