Pokemon UNITE has been continuously adding new characters to its roster in Battle Pass seasons. Luckily for Gen-1 fans, the Water and Ice-type Transport Pokemon, Lapras, is joining the MOBA game's ranks.

Now, let's get into when we will be seeing its debut in this Pokemon UNITE Lapras release date guide. 

Pokemon UNITE Lapras Release Date: When is it?

On Saturday, 4 March 2023, the Japanese Pokemon UNITE Twitter account announced the news of Lapras coming to the game, along with the previously announced Gen-6 Dragon-type, Goodra.

For those who love playing with dressed Pokemon in Pokemon UNITE as well, Lapras will be one of the characters getting Holowear outfits available as well. Along with additions for Goodra and Sabeye, all three outfits fall in line with Pokemon UNITE's array of Performer Style outfits coming with the current Battle Pass. 

These are expected to come out over the next couple of months. So, you will be able to dress up your Pokemon UNITE Lapras before you know it.
