What?

252 Hp evs are the same thing as 252 Def and 252 SpD, so an EV spread that features 252 Def and SpD is crippled.

Sigigylph's EV spread. The only point you use double 252 def instead of 252 hp is Whimsicott.
Less hp = more hp % from leech seed.
I recommend this sigigylph build.

Sigigylph @ Flame Orb
Ev's: 252 HP, 252 SpDef, 4 def
Calm nature
Ability: Magic guard

-Psycho Shift
-Stored Power
-Cosmic Power
- Roost

Now this set does better.
Three of your set's problems:
- Prone to status hits (Flame Orb + Magic guard = fixed)
- Meh EV spread (Max sp def and hp, and thanks to flame orb + psych shift, burn helps def.)
- Taunt Bait (still an issue.)
- Walled by dark types completely (Now only completely walled by houndour and houndoom)

Roost heals you while you set up.
Cosmic power makes you monstrous, with 800+ defenses at +6
Psycho shift allows you to stall out dark types and help defense.
And Stored Power sweeps.

Honestly, I haven't encountered many status inflicting Pokémon and they aren't very common in triple battles. Also how does the burn help with my defence? I'm happy to change the EV spread if what you say is true. Also, we've already discussed the Dark-type matter, hence the Hitmonlee.

Also, Houndoom is UU not RU, wouldn't even be able to get in.

3 v 3 meta is all about speed and power. It's extremely hard to wall in a meta that can have two pokemon bashing on your walls intend of just one. And why you would use a pokemon that is so SLOW in setting up is also kind of beyond me. We're talking 6 turns at LEAST. Most 3v3 matches are over in 6 turns.

What I'm trying to say is that it's not competitively viable in 3v3 meta.

That's where the Follow Me Clefable and Wide Protect Bastiodon come in, they give the Sigilyph the time to set up those six moves.

Not going to matter. Wide Guard doesn't stop a straight up attack. And a +1 Siglyph will not be able to take 2 hits well if at all.

Putting Clefable in the Center spot of a 3v3 and activating Follow Me is just sacrificing it first turn. Then what? Clefable can't take 3 attacks, and trust me, Sigilyph can't take 2 hits when it's only at +1.
