A pocket hole screw is just a screw at an angle. So if a single screw in each stud is enough, so would pocket screws.

True but he said that the shelf wouldn’t have to support much weight. Using a Kreg jig to adjust the the depth of the pocket and a 3-4” wood/deck screw with a pilot hole and washer on it should be sufficient. I’d use a straight edge to make sure the wall is flat first. If it’s 5’ long that should give you at least 3 studs.
