Lapra loved to pull pranks on humans and Pokemon. She enjoyed pulling pranks on Gabe and her Pokemon. But when she was captured by Team Rocket, Gabe rescued her and Lapra decided to join Gabe's team. Gabe used Lapra as a means of transportation on the Orange Islands. After that, Gabe sent her to Professor Oak's Lab. She hasn't been seen since.
Lapra like the rest of Gabe's Pokemon is loyal to her trainer and cares for her deeply. Her favorite hobby was pulling pranks, but that stopped when she joined Gabe's team.
