Trivia: Added Gigantamax form
** In [[Photography#Pokémon X and Y|photos]] taken at [[Azure Bay]], the {{player}} is seen riding a Lapras even if no Lapras is in the party.
* Lapras can learn the most [[one-hit knockout move]]s of any Pokémon (excluding {{p|Smeargle}}), being able to learn {{m|Sheer Cold}}, {{m|Fissure}}, and {{m|Horn Drill}}.
*Lapras is the only {{type|Ice}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} that has a [[Gigantamax]] form.
===Origin===
Lapras is based on the fabled {{wp|Loch Ness Monster}} in {{wp|Scotland}}. The creature and this Pokémon resemble an extinct order of marine reptiles known as {{wp|Plesiosauria}}. Lapras's shell and horn may be inspired by {{wp|Placodontia|placodonts}}. Its intelligence, singing, and rarity can be comparable to some {{wp|cetacea}}ns, especially {{wp|blue whale}}s and {{wp|humpback whale}}s. Its long neck and robust body may also be inspired by the mast heads and hulls of {{wp|Viking}} ships. Its Gigantamax form may be based on a {{wp|cruise ship}}.
