The Scornet is a pain. No amtter how much you hit him after an attack, the maximum amount of damage you can deal is only ever a quarter of his life.
As always you should pluck extra Pikmin sooner rather than later.
By separating two captains from your main force you can trick the Scornet’s attack attention. After his second attack, switch to the two captains on their own. The Scornet’s attack will focus on these captains. Once it’s locked on them you can swap back to your army.
The best way to ‘speed up’ the Scornet fight is simply to avoid having him grab any Pikmin. Having to rescuing them, even one of them, will add seconds to the clock.
