Lapras was used extensively as a means of transportation. Ash, {{an|Misty}}, and Tracey rode on its back as it carried them through the seas from one [[Orange Archipelago|Orange island to another]].

Ash won a race against [[Cissy]] riding on Lapras in ''[[EP085|Fit to be Tide]]'' against Cissy and her {{p|Blastoise}}, gaining his first Orange League [[Badge]] in the process.
 
He later used it against [[Danny]] in ''[[EP093|Navel Maneuvers]]'' when competing for his second Badge. Lapras had to use Ice Beam to freeze a geyser, but it lost to Danny's {{p|Nidoqueen}}.
 
Lapras was also used against a {{p|Gengar}} in the final battle against {{OBP|Drake|Orange League}} in the Orange League. The cliffhanger of ''[[EP111|Hello, Pummelo!]]'' was the collision of attacks between the two. ''[[EP112|Enter the Dragonite]]'' began with the revelation that the collision had knocked out both Pokémon.

In ''[[EP113|Viva Las Lapras]]'', Ash and {{ashfr}} found the school that Lapras got separated from. However, its school wanted nothing to do with Lapras, as it was accompanied by humans. They gained a hatred towards humans because of [[Captain Crook]], who hunted the Lapras. After Ash and his Lapras defeated the large school of {{p|Tentacruel}} belonging to the captain, the Lapras began to trust humans, and Ash's Lapras was able to rejoin the school, as well as its mother. Ash and Lapras went separate ways from that point on.
 
Ash was briefly reunited with Lapras in the episode ''[[EP257|Lapras of Luxury]]'', during which it was revealed to have matured into an adult. It eventually became the leader of its herd when the original leader stepped down in favor of Ash's Lapras, after witnessing it rescuing the herd from Team Rocket. It has never been seen since then. It also reappeared in a flashback in ''[[EP273|Gotta Catch Ya Later!]]''.
 
===Personality and characteristics===
[[File:Ash and Lapras.png|thumb|200px|Lapras and Ash]]
Lapras became afraid of humans at first when the three punks started to abuse it. Even with Ash winning against the three punks, Lapras was still afraid. When Team Rocket came by to steal the Lapras, Ash stopped them from doing so, and Lapras became more trusting towards humans. Since Lapras was with Ash during the whole trip on the Orange Islands, it became sad when it returned to the herd, as seen when it didn't want to leave Ash.
 
When Lapras later appeared in [[Johto]], it was shown to have grown more mature, eventually even taking the leadership of its herd after helping to defeat Team Rocket and save the other Lapras they had stolen.
