Guardian Blocking Walls

The Guardian can choose to make their Light Screen and Reflect Blocking Terrain. The Wall keyword states that Walls can be shifted and attacked through, while the Blocking Terrain entry states they cannot be attacked through, with no mention of shifting.

Is "a Blocking Terrain version of Light Screen/Reflect can be shifted through but not attacked through" the correct interpretation of the rules?

Here is an excerpt from the Blocking terrain text:

- Blocking Terrain: Blocking Terrain is any wall, mountain or structure in general that you would not be able to naturally walk through.
You cannot Shift through Blocking Terrain, you cannot target through Blocking Terrain. If the object creating Blocking Terrain allows, you may travel over Blocking Terrain or target over Blocking Terrain.

This to me seems that you cannot walk or attack through the blocking terrain screen, but you can target through if it is clear or semi-transparent.

I used the entry of Blocking Terrain in the move keywords instead, which does not mention travel:

-If an object that your Pokémon cannot see through is between itself and a desired tar-get, it is Blocking Terrain. You may not attack a target behind Blocking Terrain. Some blocking terrain can be seen through, that does not make it Hindering Terrain.

The only thing not clear now is if it is see through or not.

I would expect the screens to be transparent. Nothing in either definition of Blocking Terrain would overwrite the normal opacity (or lack thereof), and it seems kind of pointless if the moves detail how they reduce damage when you can't target across them. (I take concealed but with no obstructions to be the same state as using Stealth, i.e. cannot target through the concealment.)
