Biology

Sigilyph is a colorful, spherical Pokémon with a single cyan eye on its black head and two similar-looking eyespots on its body (distinguishable as such because they never blink). It has a predominantly black background with a green zigzag pattern in the center and a black pattern surrounded by green. Sigilyph has yellow wings and a long tail-like appendage with blue and red stripes on each of the “feathers”. It bears two black “feet” with three toes each, as well as two little spikes at the base.

Sigilyph will utilize its mental abilities to assault anybody who enters its domain. It seems to fly along the same path all the time because it remembers guarding an old city or serving as the guardians’ emissary.
