Biography[edit | edit source]

In the games[edit | edit source]

Cilan is not just a Gym Leader with battling skills, but he is described as a Pokémon Connoisseur and has the ability to see the compatibility between Pokémon and their trainers. He is not the only Gym Leader of Striaton City; Chili and Cress are his partners, also being Gym Leaders. In the games, if you pick Oshawott as your starter Pokémon, he will fight you in Striaton City. Like the other two gym leaders, he has one of Unova's elemental monkey Pokémon.

Cilan is first mentioned in Striaton City by Cheren in the Trainer School before you battle him, mentioning he was there before you arrived. After this battle, you find him outside the Gym. He invites you inside the Gym getting ready for battle. Once you arrive however, he reveals his two brothers: Cress and Chili, who are also Gym Leaders and states one of them will battle you depending on your starting Pokémon. He only battles trainers who own an Oshawott. After this battle, you don't hear from him again until after the end of the game when Bianca mentions that she tried to get the three Striaton City Gym Leaders to help against the sages inside N's Castle, but was too late. Cilan will always stay in the gym no matter what version afterwards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His Japanese Leader title, which is also shared with Chili and Cress, is トライアル トライアングル / Toraiaru Toranguru. "Trial Triangle"
  • Notably, the hair of Cilan, Chili, and Cress all resembles the hairstyle of the Elemental Monkeys' evolutions.
  • His name may be a play on the herb/garnish Cilantro.
  • Cress, Chili, and Cilan are the only Unova Gym Leaders who do not use all Pokémon of their type. This is probably caused by the lack of Grass, Fire, and Water types other than the starters before the player reaches Nacrene City.
  • Cilan, along with Chili and Cress, are the only Gym Leaders who do not appear to help the player in N's Castle.
  • Cilan and his siblings' names begin with "C".
  • Regardless of whether the player is male or female, he seems to idolize him/her upon being defeated. This is hinted after the main storyline, where he says "uh" and "um" multiple times while talking to him.
  • Along with Chili and Cress, they are the first gym leader trio.
