  • The Chilan Berry is the only damage-reducing Berry that does not require a supereffective hit to activate. This is likely because Normal-type moves cannot be super effective against any types.


The Chilan Berry is based on a winter cherry while it gets its name from an alternate name for the winter cherry: the "Chinese lantern".
