Lapras can be a difficult Pokémon to defeat in Pokémon Go. If you are looking to take on it in a raid, we recommend that you bring a reliable team of Pokémon with you to make sure you are properly equipped to defeat it. Several players also use Lapras in Pokémon Go's Grand and Ultra League, requiring players to be more equipped to defeat it. This guide details all of Lapras's weaknesses and the best Pokémon to counter them in the game.
All the weaknesses of Lapras
Lapras is a Ice and Water type Pokémon. It will be weak against Electric, Fighting, Grass and Rock-type moves, but is resistant to Ice and Water-type attacks. You'll mainly focus on Electric and Grass-type moves and Pokémon, especially since Grass-types are resistant to Lapras's Water-type moves, but are weak to any Ice-type attacks it might unleash.
The best Pokémon to counter Lapras
The best Pokémon to counter Lapras will be Magnezone, Lucario and Raikou.
Magnezone is a Steel and Electric-type Pokémon. It possesses a sturdy defense and offensive capabilities just as powerful as an electric type. As a result, it's an ideal choice to use against Lapras, especially in a raid. The best moveset he can use during the raid is the quick move spark and wild charge and zap cannon charged moves.
Next, we will recommend Lucario, a Fighting and Steel-type Pokémon. Like Magnezone, Lucario has high defense and heavy attack as a Fighting-type Pokémon. The best moveset he can use during a raid is the fast move counter and the aura sphere of charged moves and close combat.
The last Pokémon we will recommend is the legendary Electric-type, Raikou. While it may not have the highest defense stat compared to Lucario and Magnezone, Raikou's high attack power makes it an ideal glass cannon to use for any raid, and it's a viable choice to use against Lapras in PvP. . The best move set to give Raikou is the quick moving thunder shock and the wild charge and lightning charge moves.
You will need a full team of six Pokémon to use against Lapras. We will recommend these Pokémon to fill the rest of your team.
