Hmmm if it's a Rain/Sandstorm team I'd just suggest another Rain Dance in there somewhere seeing as the only one you have is Metagross.

Also, if the Cradily is a staller then Leftovers is usually a good choice.

The Sigilyph, now I've been absolutely loving this Pokemon and I've been doing a fair bit of research on it, while the moves you have there are what you'd expect for something with such good Sp. Atk, as of recently I've been trying out a different method using Stored Power. Now if you don't know, Stored Power is a Psychic attack with 20 base power. Sounds crap? Well the thing is, every stat boost you use adds another 20 to that number for a max power of 680 (And no this isn't possible competitively, I've tried so many methods). But to do any real damage you only need to boost anything say 3-4 times to have a moderately strong attack. But in addition, you have the power of the boosts in the mix. That's where I normally use Calm Mind which boosts Sigilyph's Sp. Atk and Sp. Def so he can take a fair few hits plus the Sp. Atk boost. You'd only have to use Calm Mind twice to get Stored Power's power to 100. Now where do you get the time you say? Well luckily Sigilyph has Hypnosis, so you can use that the first move to make the opponent fall asleep, leaving you to Calm Mind 2-3 times. Now then, you'd just start sweeping (Or keep hypnotising them and try to get +6 for Stored Power to get to 260 base power) with 100 power, STAB, +2 Sp. Atk, the Life Orb, 252 EV's, 31 IV's and a Positive nature. This leaves you with one spare move slot for something so you have more coverage or a healing move in case they score some damage on you seeing as Sigilyph isn't the fastest piece on the board (I tend to max the Speed EV's as well, just to have a better chance).

That's a really interesting concept with Sigilyph. I saw some people using the stored power but not using hypnosis on PO and using cosmic power instead of calm mind as well...but I'll definitely have to give that some consideration! I appreciate the feed back.

Also where could I fit another dancer on my team at??

And I only have 1 leftovers and hippowdon has it.....should I switch and give him something different?

Oh and metagross has rain dance so fires power gets weakened btw lol in case you were wondering

Yeah I've used Cosmic Power Sigilyph. It does the same thing as Niblesess' set basically, except you won't be getting a Special Attack Boost, but he's not really there to much damage, he's there to stall, and cripple the other team. Here's the set.

Sigilyph @ Flame Orb @ Magic Guard
Timid
252 HP / 252 Spe / 16 Def
Cosmic Power
Roost
Psycho Shift
Stored Power

The trick is keep using Cosmic Power, after 2 uses, you should be good on survival, and you'll be able to roost when you need to, by that time, you should be burned from your flame orb. You can then Psycho Shift the enemy pokemon, crippling their attack power, and making it even harder to beat Sigilyph. After that, stored power four more times, and happy sweeping, my friend.

Hmm sounds like a pretty solid strategy....would never have thought that a Staller could turn into a sweeper like that...I guess you're screwed though if your opponents last pokemon is a dark type though huh? Lol

Nawp. All those boosts, you won't even be losing a quarter of your HP.

True. That's the set's downfall.

EDIT: But Flame orb and Psycho shift isn't required. You can use life orb and give it HP fighting in place of Psycho Shift.

Very true....I can never get my iv's right no matter how hard I try Sad but that is a good idea as well with the HP. Especially if you start your set looking like a normal stored power set. Catch them off guard and land a KO then keep setting up and sweep Tongue

This is why Pokegen was invented.
