Layla is an employee of a Nursery and takes care of the Pokémon. However, a Vullaby and a Rufflet constantly get into fights and she has to take care of both of them. She invited the heroes to the Nursery to entertain the Pokémon for a while. However, Vullaby, who used Punishment on Petilil, Karrablast and a Whimsicott, was scolded by Layla for such extremistic behavior. Vullaby ran off and Layla found her being attacked by a Amoonguss. Along with Cilan, she went with Vullaby and Rufflet back to the Nursery. When they tried to cross the river, Vullaby and Rufflet fell down, so Layla jumped to save both of them, showing she cares for them, even if they have their disagreements.
