    Timid Nature
    Ability:Magic Guard
    Item:Light Clay
    252 HP/4 SpA/252 Spe
    -Light Screen
    -Reflect
    -Tailwind/ThunderWave/Gravity
    -Air Slash/Psyshock/Will-O-Wisp
    Tailwind and Gravity aren't all that great. You could probably wiggle toxic in somewhere if you had to.

    Besides that, good.
    Held item: Life orb/Flame orb
    nature: Timid
    Ability: Magic guard
    Ev spread 252 speed 252 SpA 4Hp
    Moveset:
    Calm mind
    Psyshock/Psycic/Air slash
    Roost
    Hidden power fighting/Psyco shift
    I think stored power could work if you're running flame orb.

    -Psyshock

    -Shadow Ball/ Thunder Wave/ Roost
    Hold Item: Life Orb

    I'd put calm mind on somewhere, it'll really appreciate the power boost.

    My favorite Sigilyph:



    Sigilyph @ Flame Orb
    Magic Guard
    Timid
    252 HP / 200 Def / 56 spe
    - cosmic Power
    - Roost
    - Psycho Shift
    - Assist Power

    Makes for a good late game finisher. But with only offensive attack being useable after a few boosts can be shut down easy. Only other damage option is shifting your burn to the opponent. It does act as a nice status absorber, and can stall out a game fairly well. Easily dealt with by Pokemon like Tyranitar, though they have to beware of a burn, or Rotom. Both better make sure they hit before too many boosts though or they'll have trouble dealing with it as it can heal off damage with roost.

    I've always loved Sigilyph and it's design but stat-wise it has nice speed and it's above average Sp.Att.

    Abilities:

    Wonder Guard: Stat conditions work less. I guess it's okay although Magic Guard is what you should be using

    Magic Guard: One of the best abilities out there. No weather, life orb, stealth rock, or status damage helps Sigilyph out a lot.

    Tinted Lens (DW): Moves that are not super-effective are boosted. It's an okay choice but Magic Guard's ability to make Sigilyph immune to Stealth Rock is better.

    Offensive Calm Mind:
    -Psyshock/Psychic
    -Ice Beam/Air Slash/Hidden Power (Fighting)
    -Roost
    -Calm Mind
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Magic Guard
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    EV: 4 HP, 252 Sp.Att, 252 Speed

    Psyshock is used to hit Chansey and Blissey who would otherwise wall it. Psychic is always there if you would rather hit harder. Calm Mind is used to raise it's Sp. Att and Sp Def. Ice Beam and Air Slash are both there to hit Dark types as well as bug types. Ice beam can freeze whereas Air Slash can cause flinching. HP Fighting is probably the superior option as it hits Dark types with a super effective and also hits steel types who would wall Sigilyph. Roost is there as a recovery move for it.

    Stored Power:
    -Cosmic Power
    -Stored Power
    -Roost
    -Psycho Shift
    Item: Flame Orb
    Ability: Magic Guard
    Nature: Bold
    EV: 4 HP/ 252 Def/ 252 Sp. Def

    Sigilyph is one of the best PokemonCosmic Power allows Sigilyph to raise it's defences as well as add on to Stored Power's damage. Stored Power deals a lot of damage thanks to the boosts of Cosmic Power. Roost is there to recover any damage loss if Sigilyph is in dire need of recovery. Psycho Shift is there to ruin Physical sweepers and executes this perfectly with Magic Guard as it doesn't take damage. For EV split it between Defence and Special Defence to get the extra defence to pair with Cosmic Power.

    Complete random Idea that popped into my head.

    Oddgilyph
    @Toxic Orb/Flame Orb
    Timid
    Ability:Magic Guard
    Psycho Shift
    Cosmic Power/Calm Mind
    Psychic/Psyshock
    Facade
    252 Def/Atk 252 Spec Def/Spec Atk 4 HP

    The orb and Psycho shift are there for obvious reasons, and Facade for some extra damage against dark types while still poisoned/burned. Cosmic power is for a defencive oriented Sigi, and Calm Mind for Offenicive.

    ...My first time doing something like this, I'm not much of a competitive battler. :P
    ...Well, if you think I'm gonna type my name in some rediculous swirly cursive font, well, that's not happening. At least for now.

    Ok I know this is a stupid request, but does anyone have any good set names? I can spew out competitive sets until my butt hurts but when it comes to original names.. yeah I suck.

    For the standard Cosmic Power set, maybe "Sigilyph has a lot of Cosmic Power Stored" or something? I'm guessing that's too wordy, though.

    Timid is posted so much because Cosmic Power will already raise your Defense and Special Defense, making Calm's effect more or less redundant and unecessary. Instead, even a little Speed investment through Timid will be more worthewhile.
    I'm thinking about creating a printer-friendly Pokédex guidebook for Black and White versions. Let me know what you think about it here.

    Well, here's a few cheesy ones I just came up with on the spot:

    For the Psycho Shift set: "Psycho Killer"

    For a set focussed on Stored Power & Cosmic Power: "I have the power!"

    A really long-winded one, but maybe for the Dual Screener: "All in all, I'm just another screen in/on the wall"... 'Cuz it's the typical Dual Screen set... yeeeah...

    Man, I wish I could make get jokes like that, but the town I live in is too darn icolated. Let's see, in music, we only hear about Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga, Tailor Swift, some other girl who's name I can't remember, the beetles, and a bunch of heavy metal bands. No one else. And I mean, no one else.

    Though calm can help it set up on enemies who are slower anyway better.

    I think both are viable, actually.

    Just call the Psycho Shift set "Psycho." It's a Hitchcock movie.

    Not like there's going to be many other notable sets for this thing. But hey, if you've got the set, I can at least try to come up with some sort of groan-inducing pun. It's the least I could do to contribute to this train wreck. :P

    "Quetzalcoatl's Choice"

    Nature: Timid
    Ability: Magic Guard
    Item: Life Orb/Flame Orb
    EV Spread: 252 HP, 252 Spd, 4 Sp. Atk

    Moves:
    Cosmic Power
    Roost
    Stored Power
    Charge Beam/Psycho Shift

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s... some kind of weird, Aztec symbol thing. It may not look like Superman, but played correctly, this ancient avian has the potential to be just as indestructible, and infinitely more powerful than the man of steel.

    First of all is its amazing ability, Magic Guard, which prevents all damage from non-direct moves, such as Stealth Rock, status conditions and weather effects. It even prevents recoil from Life Orb. To further boost its durability, Cosmic Power increases both of its defenses, and Roost allows health recovery as it sets up.

    With +6+6 in its defenses and instant recovery, Sigilyth is nigh on invincible. Now comes the full destructive force this Pokémon can inflict. Stored Power, quite simply, is the most powerful attack in the game. With 20 base power increased by 20 for every individual stat boost, after 6 Cosmic Powers it will have a power of 260, without even factoring in STAB. Charge beam has the potential to boost his Sp.Atk stat, and also further increases the power of Stored Power. A combo of Flame Orb and Psycho shift can instead be used in order to burn and thereby reduce the attack power of your opponent, but quite frankly after all the effort to set up your defenses and Stored Powers strength you don’t want to risk being resisted by a Dark type or defensive Steel type. Therefore, I find that the extra attack option of Charge Beam is more useful.

    While he may not be faster than a speeding bullet, this Avianoid has the defensive and offensive abilities that any Kryptonian would be jealous of. Just watch out for Sigilyth’s Kryptonite, those pesky critical hits.

    Couple of lame moveset name ideas:
    Maybe for a Cosmic Power set you could make an "Alien" reference, as the main move is Cosmic Power and it looks weird.
    For a Calm Mind set you could make a pun about how it's design is the exact opposite of calm, but I have no idea how to successfully do this.

    If it was a Calm Mind set running Psycho Shift it could be Psychoglyph or something like that I guess

    *Kraleck used Crack Knuckles. It's Not Very Effective. Kraleck is hurt by Recoil* Ow, ow, ow...okay, some interesting Move combos for Sigilyph may include:
    -Charge Beam + Ice Beam - Pseudo-Boltbeam that only gets better as C.Beam is used more.
    -Tailwind + Whirlwind - You won't get better Speed Priority for Whirlwind, but you may get lucky against a Pokemon that would barely outrun you otherwise after Whirlwind.
    -Smack Down + Doubles/Triples Partner's Earthquake or Earth Power - A stretch on Sigilyph's part for Move Combo purposes, but it can wreak a bit of havoc with Pokemon like Skarmory, Crobat, most of the Appliance Rotom, or Weezing, who would be Ground-Immune otherwise.

    Also of note, Skill Swap with Tinted Lens Ability could make Multi a niche for Sigilyph. I can think of several Pokemon with lackluster Abilities that could really use the boost...

    Yay! It's my team member on my firs team. Before my my charles girls that is ...

    High bulk could give you a challenge. N harmonica tests your team, possibly his best early oke in the game. But a nearly unbreakable wall where only few could break the Nazca guardian or Known as the Ancient Hylian loftwing of Pokemon of the legend of zelda. Really, we should nickname this to sigilyph, Ancient Hylian Loftwing on the post of its talent.

    A not so soaring crimson loftwing of Link:
    -Psyshock/Psychic
    -Icebeam
    -Air Slash
    -Twave/Shadowball/ Energyball
    Item is life orb

    Something that Zelda's loftwing can learn
    -Psycho Shift
    -Stored Power
    -Cosmic Power
    -Roost
    Item is Flame orb/Toxic orb

    Mix sets are okay

    counters. I think Special killer Lucario Could work with a Nasty plot or 3. Terrakion too but soehow gets wary with its attacks.

    Overview:

    Oh boy is Sigilyph a deadly one. Magic Guard combined with fair defenses, Psycho Shift, and Cosmic Power make this thing a lethal wall, while decent offense makes it a good attacker. Sigilyph is very versatile, and can run a variety of sets.


    Standard Defensive Troll
    Sigilyph @ Flame Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 252 HP/200 Def/56 Spe
    Bold
    - Cosmic Power
    - Stored Power
    - Psycho Shift
    - Roost

    Cosmic Power boosts Defenses and the power of Stored Power. Psycho Shift cripples physical attackers. Roost is recovery. Flame Orb gives immunity to sleep and paralysis.


    Offensive Calm Mind
    Sigilyph @ Life Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
    Timid
    - Calm Mind
    - Psyshock/Psychic/Stored Power
    - Ice Beam
    - Hidden Power [Fighting]/Air Slash/Roost

    Standard Calm Mind set. Calm Mind to give you power, random Psychic attack for STAB, Ice Beam for Dragons and Grounds, and the last spot has a variety of choices. HP Fighting hits Tyranitar, Air Slash is secondary STAB, and Roost is recovery.


    Bulkier version of Offensive Calm Mind
    Sigilyph @ Leftovers/Flame Orb
    EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 Spe
    Timid
    - Calm Mind
    - Roost
    - Stored Power
    - Ice Beam/Hidden Power [Fighting]/Psycho Shift

    Bulky Calm Minder. Calm Mind is just like above. Roost is recovery. Stored Power is preferrable here because of the attempt to get more Calm Minds. Last spot is filler. Use Flame Orb with Psycho Shift.


    Substitute
    Sigilyph @ Life Orb/Leftovers
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe or 252 HP/4 SpA/252 Spe
    Timid
    - Substitute
    - Psyshock
    - Ice Beam/Toxic
    - Hidden Power [Fighting]/Roost

    Substitute set. Use the second set of moves with the second EV spread and Leftovers, use the first set with Life Orb and the first spread. Pretty simple.


    Stereotypical Choice Set
    Sigilyph @ Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
    Timid/Modest
    - Psyshock/Psychic
    - Hidden Power [Fighting]
    - Ice Beam
    - Shadow Ball/Energy Ball/Air Slash

    Standard Choice set. Psychic move for STAB, HP Fighting hits Darks and Steels, Ice Beam for Dragons and Gliscor, and the last slot for random coverage.

    Huh. I just read again throught the last POTW and saw no references to Guns & Roses or "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."

    But at least the sets were all good, lol.

    A not so soaring crimson loftwing of Link:
    Hey, it's not a loftwing, it's the triforce eagle. Can't you tell from it's wings?

    The rare crimson loftwing is in my sig.
    -Charge Beam + Ice Beam - Pseudo-Boltbeam that only gets better as C.Beam is used more.
    Meh, calm mind is a better boosting move, and Cosmic Power is even better.
    -Tailwind + Whirlwind - You won't get better Speed Priority for Whirlwind, but you may get lucky against a Pokemon that would barely outrun you otherwise after Whirlwind.
    Eh, too situational.
    -Smack Down + Doubles/Triples Partner's Earthquake or Earth Power - A stretch on Sigilyph's part for Move Combo purposes, but it can wreak a bit of havoc with Pokemon like Skarmory, Crobat, most of the Appliance Rotom, or Weezing, who would be Ground-Immune otherwise.
    This could probably work. Dual Screens, Tail Wind, and maybe Smack Down, though I'm not excited about that last move, it could still work.

    Actually, I think Sigilyth could be decent in doubles.
    Also of note, Skill Swap with Tinted Lens Ability could make Multi a niche for Sigilyph. I can think of several Pokemon with lackluster Abilities that could really use the boost...
    Not really. Wasting a turn to give a teammate a slight boost? Eh, probably won't hurt too much, but I don't think the results will be overly amazing.

    Not tricky Sigilyph's, but powerful ones that can counter effectively Gliscors and Brelooms and do a very nice job against Conkeldurr

    Psychic for greater damage or Psyshock for defense exploit
    Ice Beam hits hard dragons and stuff like Gliscor
    HP Fire is a great addition against Pokés like Scizor, Jirachi and Celebi whilst Fighting goes for Tyranitars and other metals
    Air Slash helps hitting some other uncovered types (Starmie, Slowbro) or Roost for recovering

    Have always used this set on OU with tremendous success
    For the set name that could be Speclyph or A Psychic bird that generates ice

    For the cosmic power one how about a reference to hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy... "The life, the universe and everything" "so long and thanks for all the sigilyph" or "the sigilyph at the end of the universe"
