I am looking to catch a Sigilyph for my team but not a single one has appeared (apart from the trainer's one in the Relic Castle). I've been all over the Desert Resort, I have picked up all the items, battled all the trainers and visited the Relic Castle.
I have come across numerous Sandiles and Darumakas and a good number of Maractus' and Dwebbles (both the latter two have a 10% encounter rate - the same as Sigilyph). However, after over approx 50 encounters, I have not encountered a single wild Sigilyph.
Has anyone else had this happen?

I should point out that the chance of finding a Sigilyph is 10% only if you have NOT caught any of the others that you can find in that area, whenever you catch a pokemon the chances of finding that one again increase and the others decrease so, if you have caught all the others that is probably why you are having so much trouble finding Sigilyph, and why those who have caught it find it fairly easily.

Steeping into relic city, stepped out and went to the deep dark sand near the nurse and rotated I'm that spot for two minutes then encountered Sigilyph. I had got all the items and defeated all the players in the sandy area around relic castle. This was after I spent ages and I mean ages, probably an hour or two walking around in the dark sandy areas located before the gate that lead to the sandy area surrounding relic castle.

According to a walkthrough, Sigilyph only appears inside the Desert Resort Area.

I'm waiting until after I catch pretty much every pokémon I can catch and train all my pokémon to a certain level before I move on with the story. I've only ran into 2 Marcactus, and about 3-4 Dwebble. However, even though I've AT LEAST run into about 40-50 ish wild pokémon, I haven't run into one Sigilyph, and I don't have any pokémon that are hard to catch that people would trade for, unless it's region specific... (But by now pretty much everyone has caught every region specific) Is there any way to make it easier to catch one WITHOUT some kind of GameShark or trading?

idk if this will solve anyone's problem, but in the first desert resort area with the two non-trainers side by side and then a tunnel/door thing, there seem to be no sigilyphs. if you go through the tunnel however, into the second desert resort area where there are items and trainers, you CAN find sigilyph in the sand. again, dunno if anyone else was making this simple mistake, but if so hope this helps

There's actually a trick that you can get it.
1. Use the move "Sweet Scent". 2. Run away if it's not Sigilyph. 3. There should be a swirling dust to the northeast. 4. The Pokemon should be a Sigilyph-Boy-Level 20.
Hope this helped!

I couldn't find it until I realized you had to go into the desert resort area first and my first encounter with a wild pokemon was sigilyph and my second was maractus
