They’ve been so cherished that there’s now an overabundance. The fish Pokémon population has declined in waters with too many Lapras.

Pokemon Analysis

Overview

Lorelei & Lapras are quite good on their own, but the idea that they could be much better if certain conditions are met is something always on the horizon. 

Attempting to meet those conditions severely limits the flexibility of the Team overall, at least with the game’s current roster. 

That is the Monkey’s Paw of an otherwise solid Sync Pair.

Strengths

Powerful Toolkit

Despite how conditional Lapras’ toolkit is, her moves are still quite powerful, even if not all Buffing conditions are met. 

“Brace Yourself!” is especially great because it takes some of the pressure off of the Support of the Team by giving Lapras a bit of Self-Healing.

Weaknesses

Limited Viability

Too many of her Moves rely on the Enemy being Frozen or a Hailstorm being active. 

This means she needs to be paired with other Sync Pairs who can Freeze Enemies, and definitely have one who can cause a Hailstorm. 

All this limits her to Ice Teams, which doesn’t lend well to Team Flexibility. 

Additionally, As an Ice Pokemon who’s weak to Grass Types, there are currently more Pokemon in the game who she’s weak to than there are who she’s strong against.

Team Synergy

Hailstorm Teams

Lapras should be paired with Teammates who can cause Hailstorms, such as Candice & Abomasnow.
