Unova gym leaders
He observes that Black has been arguing with their customers. They make Black tea as the precursor to the battle.
He and his brothers purposely position themselves so that each has the type advantage over their challengers. For Cilan, that means he is across from Bianca. The battle's rules are that whoever has the most Pokémon standing at the end of 30 minutes wins.
During the triple battle, Pansage uses Vine Whip to knock over Bianca's Oshawott. Seeing that their opponents' teamwork is improving, the brothers use simultaneous Work Ups to power up, knocking out Snivy. When Oshawott knocks out Chili's Pansear, Cilan targets Oshawott's scalchop, destroying it, and then slams Oshawott into a wall with Vine Whip: KO. (Cilan remarks that Oshawott's scalchop will grow back.) Cress's Panpour seems to knock out Black's Tepig, and with half a minute left, the battle is all but won—except that their three enemies get to their feet, flushed with health from eating Pansage's berries, for a 3-2 loss for the gym leaders.
Cilan is sheepish when he realizes Black's plan. They give out badges to the three winners.
He is good-tempered and friendly.
