Episode captured: The Lost Lapras
Caught where: Tangelo Island

Released In: Viva Las Lapras

This Lapras is a Water/Ice-type Pokémon formerly owned by Ash. It was the first Pokémon that Ash caught in the Orange Islands.


Originally it was found washed up on a beach but Ash managed to help nurse it back to health until it was kidnapped by Team Rocket. Ash managed to free it and captured it until they could find Lapras' family. Lapras was primarily used as the gang's transport throughout the Orange Islands, but it was also used in several of the Gym battles and the final League match. Ash eventually let it go to be with its family, but saw it again when in Johto and helped it defend a lab and the other Lapras from Team Rocket.

  • Lapras was the first Pokémon that Ash had that got separated from its mother and then returned to her later on. The second is Larvitar.
    • Coincidentally, Lapras reunited with Ash in the same episode that he received Larvitar's egg.
