Lapras (Japanese: ラプラス Laplace) is a dual-type Water/Ice Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Lapras is a large sea creature that 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 curled ear-like appendages, 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.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

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.

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.

Unlike most Pokémon, Lapras has the ability to learn human speech.

Behavior

Lapras are social, highly intelligent 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, which 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.

Habitat

Sea

Sea Pokémon

Lapras are native to the cold waters of glacial regions, but they migrate to tropical areas to raise their young. They are extremely rare due to hunting, and are nearly extinct. They still exist in secluded spots in Johto, suiting their rarity and docility.
