Red and Blue Lapras

Posted on May 21st, 2019 by Terry Kim

Lapras comes in boy Red and girl Blue!

In Pokémon generation II, the Lapras sprite that the player character rides for HM03 Surf is blue if the player has picked a girl, and red if the player has picked a boy(Defaults to a red for Gold/Silver versions).

The choice to use red for male protagonists is intriguing though, as Lapras are light blue by nature, and purple- not red, for the shiny variant. The overworld sprite seems to be the only instance of a red Lapras to date.
