oracle doesn't know "bigint". it knows NUMBER data type, and FLOAT ... for large numbers.
which is defined in the target column, not the sequence object
http://www.techonthenet.com/oracle/sequences.php
with MAXVALUE 999999999999999999999999999 being the default, that should be big enough?

so you might want to clarify the question or actual problem?
