Strategy Using Lapras

Lapras is one of those pokemon with high HP and decent defensive and offensive stats.
Lapras's movepool is varied and allows for quite a few movesets to be created. This moveset is simple to understand, there's one move to possibly gain an extra turn of attacking with the three other moves.
Surf and Ice beam gain a nice boost from STAB and cover many types that Lapras is weak against.
Thunderbolt is a nice filler move with the chance of paralysis that will help Lapras, as it has poor speed.
Like its been stated before, Confuse ray could allow Lapras to attack more frequently without being damaged in the process.

Animé Appearences

Lapras has had a fair few Animé Appearences. First appearance had Lapras under control of Santa out to look for one of his lost Jynx. After that, Ash & Misty found an injured one in the Orange Islands, after helping to rescue it from Team Rocket, Ash caught it and used it to travel across the Orange Islands and he used it in a few gym battles.
