It look's like an Unknown. Any information if it is an evolution of one? DeadUniverse Hello! 06:42, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

It's not. None of the Gen V Pokémon are related to older ones. --ZestyCactus 06:43, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

It's based on the Nazca Lines, as mentioned in the article. Should it specify that it's based on the hummingbird-shaped Nazca Line?--Shinbora 06:49, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Well that makes sense, thanks for explaining. DeadUniverse Hello! 06:50, 1 October 2010 (UTC)


Has the part about it's connection with the unown proven? If not it should be taken out. I think this is simmilar to the Cubone and Khangaskhan theory because there is no known evidence of the conection. I say we leave it out until it is confirmed. --EpicShadow 16:48, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... No mention of Xatu? they are the same type and are inspired from ancient civilizations... Frosslass 07:02, 11 December 2010 (UTC)


Shin as in deity. Anything 'bout bora?--444Zekrom 14:19, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

This is highly likly to be where it came from. Bora (wind) --EpicShadow 20:39, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Possible name origin

Could the name have come from the word shinboraizu (Symbolise)? This only makes sense because Shinbora is based on the Nazca lines which are basicly giant symbols in the ground.--EpicShadow 20:31, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

It's just "Symboler" written in katakana.--Shinbora 01:09, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Actualy it might be more than that. If you look at the "Shin?" part of this talk page I found that along with the word shin (deity), bora is actualy the name of a spicific wind, and could also have derived from the name of the greek figure Boreas. --EpicShadow 01:57, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

B2W2 Translation

I used Google Translate, then used a minor edit. Here's the translation: "A Guardian Diety of an ancient city. Sigilyph has joined the patrol to keep an eye on the same route as always." KirbyRider (talk) 21:49, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

the physiology section sucks

see section name. seriously it doesn't even mention that the main body has different colour stripes and the middle black part is zig-zaggy. sigilyph has a complex design, it shouldn't be halfa**** 0danmaster0 (talk) 17:01, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

If you don't like it, add to it or rewrite it instead of complaining on the talk page. This is a wiki, after all. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 17:43, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

How Many Eyes?

The current Biology section notes that Sigilyph has a total of three eyes; two on the main body and a third on the appendage. However, perhaps it only has one eye and the other two are markings? For reference, Sigilyph in amie and Refresh --Ryu Shoji (talk) 00:28, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
