|Introduced in Generation III
A Chilan Berry (Japanese: ホズのみ Hozu Fruit) is a type of Berry exclusive to the Generation III games. It can only be acquired by scanning in the corresponding e-Reader card in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.
In the core series games
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.

A Chilan plant will yield 1-2 Berries.
The Chilan Berry's name may be based on Chinese lantern. Its design may be based on a Physalis alkekengi or tomatillo.
