In ''[[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 theIn ''[[PokémonBW090|Jostling Worldfor Tournamentthe Junior Cup!]] in '', Cilan entered the [[BW090|JostlingPokémon forWorld theTournament 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 {{p|Crustle}} against [[Trip's Serperior]]. Despite his efforts, Cilan ended up being defeated and was eliminated from the tournament.
In ''[[BW090BW099|A Surface to Air Tag Battle Team!]]'', Cilan and Ash battled brothers [[Soren and Rocko]] in a Tag Battle and won the match. Afterwards, the brothers began blaming each other for the loss, so Cilan provided a Connoisseur evaluation and concluded that they needed to catch some {{t|Water}} Pokémon. Rocko and Soren soon {{pkmn2|caught}} themselves a {{p|Corphish}} and {{p|Buizel}}, respectively, and immediately started working on new battle combinations.
In ''[[BW123|Farewell, Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures!]]'', Cilan, Ash, and Iris traveled to the [[Decolore Islands]] as a means to travel to Ash's home in [[Pallet Town]]. The gang was tricked into giving their Poké Balls to Team Rocket, however. Eventually, they got them back by the end of the episode due to {{p|Oshawott}} freeing them.
In ''[[BW125|Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!]]'', Cilan tried to investigate the person who stole the gem of the gem collector [[Mrs. Ripple]]. He eventually deduced the thief's identity as [[Teaque]], a competitor of Ash in the [[Marine Cup Tournament]].
In ''[[BW134|The Journalist from Another Region!]]'', Cilan and the group met up with [[Alexa]], a journalist from the [[Kalos]] [[region]] visiting the Decolore Islands to research local festivities on the islands, in ''[[BW134|The Journalist from Another Region!]]'', while in [[Harvest Island]]. On the island, the group entered a [[Pokémon Sumo competitionTournament]], which Cilan entered Pansage in. Pansage won in the beginning round, but was eventually defeated. After this, Alexa and the group decided to travel together throughout the rest of their adventures in the Decolore Islands.
When the group arrived in Kanto inIn ''[[BW141|Best Wishes Until We Meet Again!]]'', when the group arrived in [[Kanto]], Cilan and Iris decided that they will stop traveling with Ash. Cilan decided to travel to [[Johto]] to compete in the [[Old Rod]] Fishing Rally that was being hosted by [[Mr. Briney]] from the [[Hoenn]] region. He also decided to start anew as a Connoisseur. As such, he chose to travel with Iris on the magnet[[Magnet trainTrain]] and then set forth to the competition once in Johto.
After parting ways with Iris in [[BWS01]], Cilan met up with {{an|Brock}}. Together, they successfully quelled a rampaging {{p|Gyarados}} and stopped a Pokémon poacher named [[Amer]]. By the end of the episode, however, neither were introduced to each other or knew that Ash was a mutual friend of theirs. He also reappearedappeared in Ash's fantasy in ''[[BW142|The Dream Continues!]]''.

Cilan appeared again in [[XYS06]]. He was shown to have traveled to the [[Kalos]] [[region]] to participate in a [[fishing]] tournament in [[Lumiose City]], during which he met {{an|Clemont}} and {{an|Bonnie}}. When Cilan reveals that he would like to visit the [[Lumiose Gym|Prism Tower]], Clemont and Bonnie agree to accompany him there. On Cilan's suggestion, the three decide to take the subway to the tower, but Bonnie ends up boarding a runaway train alone. Clemont and Cilan manage to stop the train and rescue Bonnie with the help of Clemont's [[Clemontic Gear|special lure]], his [[Clemontic Gear{{p|Aipom}} Arm]], and Cilan's fishing skills. They later send out Pansage and {{TP|Clemont|Chespin}} to battle an {{p|Eelektross}} who had been causing the subway problems, before realizing it was lost and sick from {{DL|Illness in the Pokémon world|Electrical overcharging|electrical overcharge}}. After helping the Eelektross, Cilan heads off to [[Shalour City]] to visit the [[Tower of Mastery]].

Cilan tends to use the phrase "It's <verb> time!" when addressing a special scenario, such as when he evaluates {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and [[human]] relations he says, "It's evaluating time!" in the dub and "It's tasting time!" in the original. During [[Gym]] battles in the dub, he will use the phrase, "It's time for the battle to be served!" When {{pkmn2|caught|catching}} a Pokémon, he uses the line 「{{tt|_____ゲットでグッドテイスト!|I got a ____ with good taste!}}」 in the original. He has used different phrases for catching Pokémon in the dub, however.
Like {{an|Brock}}, he has proved himself to be a good cook as he prepares meals for the group, and he also has a very broad knowledge about Pokémon. Cilan also navigates the group on their journey through use of his [[Town Map]], much like [[Max]] who had a [[PokéNav]], and {{an|Brock}} who had maps and a [[Pokégear]].
As a [[Pokémon Connoisseur]], he can read into people's personalities and often finds the best ways to approach them. He's patient and caring towards {{Ash}} and {{an|Iris}}, often offering them advice when they don't know what to do. While he has been shown to lose his temper, he quickly moves on and will go out of his way to make up for it. He tends to be an optimist looking at things positively rather than wallowing in defeat.
He is also shown to be afraid of the paranormal which has made him a skeptic, preferring to find logical scientific explanations for everything, but when he can't find a logical explanation he is typically the first to flee. His love for science is later emphasized upon encountering a possible UFO sighting which leads to him meeting one of his mentors, [[Professor Icarus]].
Cilan also has a passion for sleuthing and will sometimes play detective. He even has a special hat that he wears and a magnifying glass. But he does more than just play as he was able to draw conclusions and come up with ideas in order to find the missing {{p|Audino}} in ''[[BW035|Where Did You Go, Audino?]]''.
In ''[[BW044|Purrloin: Sweet or Sneaky?]]'', it was revealed that Cilan also has a fear of {{p|Purrloin}}. He stated that one of them did something terrible to him, which he refused to talk about as he didn't want to remember it. In ''[[BW125|Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!]]'', Cilan overcame his fear a little bit, but never truly got over it. The reason for his fear is unknown, although he has told {{Ash}} and {{an|Iris}} about it.
He, like his brothers, often speaks about Pokémon in relation to their element; in Cilan's case, leaves and herbs. All the brothers tend to use hand positions like rock, paper, and scissors - Cilan emphasizes words using his fingers.

* In the games, Cilan can only be battled at the Striaton Gym if the {{player}} chooses {{p|Oshawott}} as their [[starter Pokémon]]. Notably, Ash has obtained {{AP|Oshawott}} from {{prof|Juniper}} as his first out of the Unova starter Pokémon, and used him in his Gym battle against Cilan. The same thing also happened to [[Burgundy]], as she battled him once with an Oshawott.
* Cilan is the first of Ash's {{ashfr|male friends}} to have a fear of a {{p|Purrloin|specific Pokémon}}.
