Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Frost Breath and Ice Shard are both great go-to Ice-type options for offense.

  • Water Gun should be paired with Hydro Pump, but is undesired, as Lapras’s niche is in its STAB Ice-type moves.

  • Blizzard is on par with Ice Beam; the choice is down to personal preference.

  • Hydro Pump performs similarly to Surf, akin to the above Ice-type charge moves.

  • Dragon Pulse is clearly the worst option due to lack of STAB and meaningful coverage.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Ice Shard edges out Frost Breath with respect to defensive DPS and energy gain.

  • Water Gun suffers from rock-bottom base power.

  • Hydro Pump is both powerful and difficult to react to, and Lapras has the bulk to use it.

  • Blizzard has the same high base power as Hydro Pump, but it’s easier to dodge.

  • Surf and Ice Beam have similar damage windows, but Ice Beam is much stronger.

  • Dragon Pulse is underwhelming due lack of STAB and a late damage window.

Rating Explanation

New generations mean new additions to the bulky Ice-type family, and Lapras now faces tough competition from Walrein as the jack of all trades attacker and defender. Many of Lapras’s good moves are also becoming legacy, being replaced by moves such as Surf that it doesn’t benefit from.

This is not to say Lapras is no longer relevant; its HP is still one of the highest in the game. Water / Ice dual typing threatens both Grass and Fire-type counters, leaving few “correct” answers when attacking a Lapras.

All things considered, Lapras is still a strong option for both offense and defense, backing up impressive bulk with an ability to give its “counters” a hard time.
