Cilan showed off some of his skills as a fisherman in ''[[BW032|Facing Fear with Eyes Wide Open!]]'', where he fished a {{TP|Cilan|Stunfisk}} out of a lake that was preventing Ash and {{AP|Oshawott}} from retrieving a water herb that would heal their {{status|poison}}ed Pokémon, using a lure that resembled himself. Though Stunfisk put up a struggle, Cilan confused it by twirling it around in the air with his fishing rod before he slammed it to the ground. This left it unable to battle and he captured it. These skills were put to use again in ''[[BW037|A Fishing Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition!]]'' when he managed to hook a {{p|Basculin}} during a fake fishing competition held by the {{TRT}}.
In ''[[BW039|Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!]]'', Cilan signed up to participate in the [[Club Battle]] tournament in [[Nimbasa Town]] along with his friends. He also reunited with [[Burgundy]] who was still determined to get her revenge. It was revealed that his first opponent would be [[Trip]] and their battle began in the [[BW039|next episode]]. He chose {{TP|Cilan|Dwebble}} to go up against Trip's {{p|Gurdurr}}. Initiating all of Dwebble's skills, Cilan was able to defeat him and advance to the second round of the competition, much to Burgundy's dislike. In ''[[BW041|The Club Battle Hearts of Fury: Emolga Versus Sawk!]]'', his second round opponent was [[Luke]]. Cilan chose {{TP|Cilanp|Stunfisk}} to go up against Luke's {{p|Larvesta}} and lost, thus knocking Cilan out of the tournament in the second round.

In ''[[BW047|Crisis from the Underground Up!]]'' and ''[[BW048|Battle For The Underground!]]'', Cilan revealed he had an extensive knowledge of trains, and had once met {{FB|Subway Boss|Emmet}} and {{FB|Subway Boss|Ingo}} at a train convention. He even donned a black conductor's hat similar to Ingo's. Later when Team Rocket had stolen all of the Pokémon at the Pokémon Center, Cilan used his knowledge to become a major asset for Emmet and Ingo and help rescue the stolen Pokémon.
Later, inIn ''[[BW050BW051|Lost at the Stamp Rally!]]'', Cilan competed in the [[Subway Bosses's Stamp Rally]] for a chance to battle either Ingo or Emmet. He collected all of the stamps except for one, though regardless, the Subway Bosses agreed to have a [[Multi Battle|Tag Battle]] against Cilan and Ash as thanks for saving the Nimbasa Subway network from Team Rocket earlier.
Cilan was able to meet up with his brother [[Chili]] again inIn ''[[BW058|A Call for Brotherly Love!]]'', Cilan was able to meet up with his brother Chili. Chili told him that he came to view the progress of his studying and immediately asked him for a battle to which Cilan accepted. He was able to easily able to defeat [[Chili's Pansear]] with his Pansage which provoked a fight between the High Temp Pokémon and its Trainer. He later learned from Cress that Chili had run away from the Gym because he criticized his battling style. Cilan decided that he would help Chili find his own battle style. While Cress said that Chili needed to not focus on offense so much and focus more on defense, Cilan thought it would be better for him to continue to focus on his offense under the premise of "a good offense is a good defense". He believed that teaching Pansear {{m|Solar Beam}} would be a good way for Pansear to defend itself against {{type|Water}}s and it successfully learned the move with the help of Pansage.
In ''[[BW067|Cilan Takes Flight!]]'', upon seeing that [[Skyla]] was not exercising her job as a Gym Leader properly, he decided to battle her. After seeing that her "Air Battle" system was only trusting in type match-up, when she told him that she was going to win, he put his efforts after his previous experiences where types didn't tell the outcome of the battle. However, as she had predicted he lost the battle, leaving Ash to attempt in making her have a change of heart, in which he succeeded.
In ''[[BW070|The Clubsplosion Begins!]]'', Cilan entered the [[Clubsplosion]] that was held in [[Ambiga Town]]'s [[Battle Club]]. He was able to defeat [[Flora]] in the first round, but lost to [[Stephan]] in the second, much to [[Burgundy]]'s delight.

In ''[[BW080|Clash of the Connoisseurs!]]'', he was hired by [[Mr. Hatterly]] along with [[Ricard Nouveau]], another A-class Connoisseur, in order to choose Mr. Hatterly's [[Marigold|daughter]]'s first Pokémon. Cilan and Ricard didn't come to an agreement due to both having different points of view, and a duel between both Connoisseurs ensued. Even though Ricard's Premium Brand was the Pokémon of Cilan's phobia, a {{p|Purrloin}}, Cilan remained victorious. He then revealed to Mr. Hatterly that he had found out that his daughter had already befriended a Pokémon, a {{p|Foongus}}, and convinced him that this would be the best partner for his daughter.
Shortly after arriving at {{an|Cynthia}}'s villa in [[Undella Town]] inIn ''[[BW086|Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!]]'', shortly after arriving at {{an|Cynthia}}'s villa in [[Undella Town]], Cilan asked to battle {{an|Dawn}} as he wanted to evaluate a Pokémon that had been raised by a {{pkmn|Coordinator}}. He chose to use his Pansage against [[Dawn's Piplup]], and was surprised to see his strategies being countered and used against him. During the battle, Cilan gave an evaluation of Dawn's [[Friendship|bond]] with Piplup, saying that he could sense that the two were friends by the way Piplup used his [[move]]s. The battle was eventually interrupted by {{an|Meloetta}}.
Cilan entered the [[Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup]] in ''[[BW090|Jostling for the Junior Cup!]]''. He managed to defeat [[Shepherd]] and [[Horatio]] in the first and second rounds, respectively, assuring his progression to the semifinals. There, he faced off against [[Trip]], using his Crustle against [[Trip's Serperior]]. Despite his efforts, Cilan ended up being defeated and was eliminated from the tournament.
