Unrest at the Nursery! (Japanese: ポケモン保育園は大騒ぎ！ワシボンとバルチャイ！ Pokémon Nursery School Uproar! Washibon and Valchai!!) is the 95th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 752nd episode of the Pokémon anime. It aired in Japan on September 20, 2012, in the United Kingdom on December 28, 2012 and in the United States on January 12, 2013.
Ash and Scraggy are training for the Unova League when they get involved in a scuffle between a Rufflet and a Vullaby! As they try to break up the fight, an aide from the nearby Pokémon nursery shows up looking for the two squabbling Pokémon. Layla introduces herself and brings Rufflet and Vullaby—along with Ash, Iris, and Cilan—back to the nursery with her.
When Cilan learns that Rufflet and Vullaby have never gotten along, he offers to lend his Connoisseur skills to fix the pairing problem. Although Vullaby is withdrawn at first, a little encouragement from Cilan and the others soon has all of the nursery’s Pokémon playing happily together! But when more trouble ensues during lunch, Vullaby uses Punishment on several of the others in an attempt to calm things down.
Layla thanks Vullaby for its help, but gently suggests that it might have gone overboard. This hurts Vullaby’s feelings, and it angrily runs away! Layla and Cilan quickly go after it, and Ash and Iris stay behind to keep an eye on the nursery...until they realize Rufflet has wandered off after Layla, and Ash sets off to find it.
Cilan and Layla manage to track down the sulking Vullaby, and Rufflet catches up with them shortly afterward. As he watches the three of them interact, Cilan offers a theory about the ongoing rivalry: Rufflet and Vullaby have been competing for Layla’s affection, and when she pays attention to one of them, the other quickly becomes jealous. She reassures the two Pokémon that she cares about both of them equally.
Their trip back to the nursery is fraught with danger, but Meloetta locates them and brings Ash to help. Layla proves her devotion to Rufflet and Vullaby by protecting them both, and everyone arrives back at the nursery unharmed!
As everyone happily listens to Meloetta’s beautiful singing, it becomes apparent that Team Rocket is secretly listening as well—but for different, sinister reasons. Dr. Zager has gathered the last bits of data needed to execute their plan, and their next step is to inform the Boss of their success—with hopes that he’ll come to meet them in Unova!

and his friends
train with Scraggy
using Focus Blast
on a rock near Cynthia's Villa. The group then hears a Pokémon cry at the forest and rushes to see a Rufflet
and a Vullaby
attack each other. Rufflet is angry at Vullaby for throwing a rock at his head, and Cilan
realizes Scraggy's Focus Blast had caused it. Rufflet then furiously attacks her. Angered, Vullaby attacks Rufflet as well with her Punishment
move. Ash, Pikachu
and Scraggy try to stop them, but Vullaby sees them and attacks them as well. While chasing after them, Iris
and Cilan comfort a panicked and crying Rufflet. The girl comes in and sees, having looked for them for a long time, but accidently trips over the small rock. The three of them embrace each other, then the other Pokémon (such as Petilil
) come out of the bush too. Ash and the others are confused and wonder what's going on.
The nursery manager introduces her as Layla. She explains that the two of them left while Whimsicott flew away and got lost. Meanwhile, Rufflet tries to hit the ball at Vullaby's face, but she hits him instead. This makes Rufflet cry once again. Layla tries to comfort him, but once again accidently trips over the small rock. The nursery manager explains that she recently started working there as his assistant and is very clumsy. Layla gets up and tells Rufflet to play nice, angering Vullaby. She tries to make Rufflet and Vullaby stop what they're doing, but they refuse. The manager explains that Rufflet and Vullaby have come go the daycare for a while, but fight each other. Cilan states that he will help to stop their rivalry and become friends.
When the baby Pokémon were all eating their food, they had a difficult time because Layla forgot to crack the shells on the food, but Rufflett cracks the shell with the talons on his foot and Layla is impressed, and this makes Vullaby jealous. All of a sudden the other baby Pokémon begin to act up and then Vullaby uses Punishment on them and that makes them cry, and then Meloetta comes in and sings her beautiful song to calm down the Pokémon. Layla goes up to Vullaby and thanks her for helping, but explains that she shouldn't have used Punishment on the others, and Vullaby gets upset causing her to run away with Layla following after her and Rufflett following after her.
