The shield from Buddy Barrier lasts for about 4 seconds. This means that the shield from the item can expire while the shield from using the Unite Move itself persists, although this differs from case to case.
The shield from Buddy Barrier stacks on top of shields from moves like Cotton Guard, and other held items like Assault Vest. It can also stack with the shield given by your own goal zones. Having multiple shields from various sources can definitely help you survive longer in fights, and discourage enemies from attacking you.
|The shield duration is about 4 seconds. It is displayed as the white part of the HP bar.|
The purpose of this test was to determine how long the shield from Buddy Barrier lasts. The test was conducted by simply taking note of how long it takes before the shield disappers.
As a result of the test, it is confirmed that the Buddy Barrier shield lasts for about 4 seconds.
|The range of the Buddy Barrier shield effect is about 3 to 4 Pokemon.|
The purpose of this test was to determine how far the effect of Buddy Barrier can get. The test was conducted by having an allied Pokemon start beside the bearer, then continuously get farther from it while the bearer keeps activating the Buddy Barrier effect for each distance until the effect can no longer reach the ally.
As a result of the test, the range is about 3 to 4 Pokemon. With this in mind, it is best to stay near the Pokemon who needs the shield the most during battles.
The purpose of this test was to determine if two instances of shields from two Buddy Barrier can overlap. The test was conducted by having two allied Pokemon equip Buddy Barrier each, then activating the effect consecutively to see if the shields add up.
As a result of the test, it is confirmed that multiple instances of Buddy Barrier overlap. The best strategy for this is by having the Pokemon equipped with Buddy Barrier stick together to ensure their shields always overlap. This can be extremely useful in big fights.
The purpose of this test was to determine if shields from other sources like moves and other held items stack on top of the shield from Buddy Barrier. The test took note of 5 instances of shields for each source of shield: (1) the shield from the other source only, (2) the shield from the other source and Unite Move but without Buddy Barrier, (3) the shield from the Unite Move only without Buddy Barrier, (4) the shield from the Unite Move with Buddy Barrier, and (5) the shield from the other source and Unite Move with Buddy Barrier.
As a result of the tests, apart from stacking shields from two Buddy Barriers, it is confirmed that the shield from Buddy Barrier stacks with other sources of shields like in moves and other held items. Since shields from two Buddy Barriers can overlap, the best scenario is if two allies have Buddy Barrier equipped, and at least one of them picked a Pokemon which have moves that generate shields for the entire team like Eldegoss, it is possible to have triple shields on at least two players.
