Lapras is a Pokémon obtained by Misty three years after her encounter with
Lapras is a large sea creature which resembles a plesiosaur. It has four flippers, however its front ones are notably larger than its hind flippers. It has a long neck, and large black eyes. Lapras has unusual curled ears that resemble Slowbro's and a short horn in the middle of its forehead. The majority of its body is blue, while its underside is a light cream color. Its most distinguishing feature is the heavy shell on its back, which is largely dotted with blunt knobs.
Abilities and Traits
Lapras is most known for its fondness of moving people and Pokémon across bodies of water.
Lapras also possess the ability to sing, putting Pokémon and people to sleep. Some Lapras are able to develop Psychic abilities such as telepathy, such as the one belonging to Santa Claus. Misty's Lapras also possesses these Psychic-powers.
Lapras is also able to wield Electric-type attacks, and, on rare occasions, some are able to use the Dragon-type move Dragon Pulse—possibly due to their likeness to the plesiosaur.
Lapras are social Pokémon, and they swim through the sea in large pods. They keep track of their fellow pod members through use of high-pitched songs they constantly sing, much like whales. Unfortunately they are very docile and do not like to fight, and this has made them an easy target for hunters. They are currently very rare in the wild. Their songs have become very sorrowful in recent times as it has become harder and harder for these peaceful Pokémon to find others of their kind. They are highly intelligent, and have been said to be able to learn human speech.
Lapras are native to the cold waters of glacial regions, but they migrate to tropical areas such as the Orange Archipelago to raise their young. They are extremely rare due to hunting, and are nearly extinct. They are said to still exist in secluded spots Kanto, Johto, the Sevii Islands and Sinnoh. In Hora, Lapras exist is larger numbers, due to the laws against Pokémon hunting that exists in the region.
