Chilan Berries cannot be used directly and only have a use as an ingredient for Pokéblocks.

A Chilan Berry cannot be stolen by Thief or Covet, or exchanged by Trick.

The player will not be permitted to enter the Pokémon Cable Club Trade Center if a Pokémon in their party is holding this Berry. A Pokémon holding this Berry cannot be traded to Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, nor can it be stored in the Western versions of Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire.

If held by a Pokémon transferred through Pal Park to the Generation IV games, it will become an Enigma Berry.
