"People have driven Lapras almost to the point of extinction.
In the evenings, this Pokémon is said to sing plaintively as it seeks what few others of its kind still remain."

It had been a good day for the Lapras hunters.
Pulling in another fresh kill, the men laughed to each other, preparing to take the massive shell for decoration- possibly its blubber, as well. They'd had a good run that day, having caught several Lapras for preparation. Even then, things were beginning to look a little off- a thick fog began to roll in. None of the men were too concerned- they'd certainly be able to see a silhouette if it came close enough- and see one they did.

A massive creature appeared in the fog, slowly swimming closer to them. One man identified it as a Lapras- an unusually huge one. The crew got exceptionally excited. A Lapras this big would have an amazing haul! But as the beast drew closer and closer, and more details came into clarity, the men's excitement slowly shifted to fear...

It was massive. Utterly gigantic. Its eyes were glowing, pupil-less, leaving trails of light in the foggy air. The tip of its unusually sharp horn glowed- beautifully, yet frighteningly. And its mouth...its mouth was jagged, almost like that of a Trapinch...and blood dripped from it. Frightened, the men aimed their harpoon guns and fired. Unfortunately, this did nothing for them- the beast was unfazed, and all they had done was confirm to it that they were hunters.

It roared, blood splashing into the water from its gaping maw- before it swung its head down.

The men screamed. The boat cracked and splintered.

And then...silence.

The ghostly Lapras sailed back into the fog, leaving behind a boat bitten in two and not a single man on board. Bits of driftwood floated away as the creature let out a haunting howl, telling its still-living kin that it was safe to pass. It had saved them...saved them from certain death.

Yeesh, it's like a pokémon Moby Dick. 

I always wondered what people would want with a dead lapras. Wouldn't a live one be more useful to ride on? 

Maybe not this one. Too many spines. Kind of like this one ominously materializing from the fog of the wild seas. Nice.

The blubber, I'd imagine also the shell, and perhaps the hide.

With teeth like that, I'm pretty sure it could eat those hunters for breakfast. Without any milk.

Gorgeous. You did a really great job on this view point; usually when I think of Lapras I think of peace, but obviously, in this drawing you portrayed people endangering the lapras, which creates a downer scene. I like how you added the fishing spears, too.

You can't even have a female gardevoir.
If it's a male, it'll have a different evolution chain, ending with Gallade...

I love this one, it's one of my new favorites!! I love the concept of poaching you've got going here, I love your art because some of the pieces depict some form of animal cruelty in a way that seems more relatable for the common PokeNerd. You are awesome!!
