In the anime
Chili appeared in BW005 alongside fellow Gym Leaders Cilan and Cress. Along with Cress, he made his first appearance when serving Ash. Ash declined, and said he wanted to battle the Gym Leader, and the three brothers introduced themselves. They followed Ash to the battleground where they revealed their Pokémon. Chili was the first to battle Ash, and lost.
He, like his brothers, tends to speak about Pokémon in relation to their element, in Chili's case, fire. All the brothers tend to use hand positions like rock, paper, and scissors - Chili tends to accentuate words with his fists.
This listing is of Chili's known Pokémon in the anime.
|Pansear is Chili's only known Pokémon. It first appeared when Chili showed what Pokémon he has and Ash scans it on his Pokédex. It is the first Pokémon Ash battled in his gym battle. Tepig's attacks didn't do much damage to Pansear, but Pansear hit Tepig hard with Fire Punch, Flamethrower and Dig. One of Pansear's Dig attacks knocked Tepig into the air. But Ash commanded it to use Tackle into the hole that Pansear was in and it managed to bite down on Pansear's tail. Tepig then spun Pansear around and threw it on the ground, used Ember successfully, and then knocked it out with powerful Tackle.|

- His Japanese Leader title, shared with Cilan and Cress, is トライアル トライアングル.
- Chili's hair resembles the flames of a fire. This is much like how Cilan and Cress both have hairstyles based on the type they specialize in.
