Cooldown is About 5 Seconds

When the shield from Score Shield is generated, whether the player manages to score or not, it goes on cooldown for about 5 seconds. This means that players cannot continuously generate a shield from Score Shield by rapidly pressing the 'X' button to score.

Stacks with Shields from Other Sources

The shield from Score Shield can stack on top of shields from moves like Cotton Down, and other held items like Buddy Barrier. As a consequence, players can get extra protection from enemies when trying to score a goal.

Score Shield Test

Shield Stack Test

The purpose of this test was to determine if the shield from Score Shield can stack with shields from other sources. The test took note of three instances of shields for each source: (1) the shield from Score Shield only, (2) the shield from the other source only, and (3) the shield from both Score Shield and the other source.

Shields can Stack

As a result of the tests, although not visually noticeable from the images, it is confirmed that shields generated from other sources stacks on top of the shield from Score Shield while attempting to score. Given this effect, using shields from other sources can bolster a Pokemon's shield while attempting to score with Score Shield equipped, making it extermely hard for the enemy to stop players from scoring points and capturing goals.

08:45 No
08:44 Yes
Interval between the first instance and the second instance: 5 seconds.

The purpose of this test was to determine how long before the shield from Score Shield can be generated again after an initial attempt. The test was conducted in the Practice Area. The Pokemon was first ordered to collect 50 points by defeating wild Pokemon. After collecting points, the Pokemon was ordered to attempt to score every second starting from when the shield was first generated until it was generated again, noting how long it took before the second instance of the shield was generated.

As a result of the test, there is about a 5 second cooldown each time the shield is generated. With this in mind, after an unsuccessful attempt to score, it is important to wait at least 5 seconds before trying again, so that the shield from Score Shield can be generated once more. It's speculated that the purpose of the cooldown is to prevent players from spamming the shield when attempting to score goals.
