|Family||Cilan and Cress (Brothers)|
Chili (Japanese: ポッド Poddo) is a member of the Striaton City Gym Leader trio, along with his brothers Cilan and Cress in Pokémon Black and White. This boy considers himself the strongest of the Trio of brothers. If Snivy is chosen as the starter Pokémon, he will battle the player at the Striaton City Gym with his Pansear. He will award the player the Trio Badge if you defeat him.
In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, he's no longer a Gym Leader. If Memory Link is used, it is shown in a flashback that the trio begin to question their strength after being unable to battle Team Plasma, as general opinion is that it needs the three of them to make a good trainer, and discuss what needs to be done to correct that. Suddenly the Shadow Triad assaults them on a "whim", and both sides engage in a Battle. However the Shadow Triad easily defeats the Gym Leaders, which makes them leave so as to check on the other Gym Leaders that can be a true threat. The humiliating defeat, makes them admit they can only succeed as a trio. They then decide to resign as Gym Leaders and restart their training from scratch, so that eventually one of them can become a recognized trainer, then when their strengths match each other again, they can be a trio of Gym Leaders once more. They then think on who will be the new Gym Leader.
All of this is true in the anime but not the game.
Chili is strong and passionate in battle and will do anything to win. He loves his Pansear and thinks battling is spicy. He likes to use Dig and Fire Punch a lot. His Pansear can use Flamethrower but it only uses it rarely. He will let you attack at the start and then use these moves. To keep the battle fair, he will give you a chance to attack in between his attacks, but he puts up a good fight. It will also take courage to fight him with a fire type as said in the anime. Although he has courage, Chili is the most defeated of the three Striaton Gym Leaders.

In the anime
In the Anime, just like the other trios, they first asked which of the three gym leaders Ash will choose to battle, but Ash says that he wants to battle all three. Although Chili loses with his Pansear, he congratulates Ash.
He returns to battle Cilan in BW060, but was defeated. It is revealed that between what happened in A Conniseur's Revenge and BW060 Chili decided to go on his own journey leaving Cress in charge of the Gym. Chili and his Pansear then train with Cilan and his Pansage. After that Chili challenges Ash to a battle and triumphs over his Oshawott.
