    I Ranked The 50 Cutest Pokémon While Incessantly Squealing And It Was No Easy Feat

    These Pokémon are the ones you're going to want to squeeze forever.

    I don't know about y'all, but I live with a little thing called cuteness aggression.

    I mean, who doesn't seem something adorable and become immediately overwhelmed with the desire to yell about it and squeeze the cute thing in question? 

    As a cuteness connoisseur of sorts, one of my favorite imaginary universes to inhabit is the wonderful world of Pokémon.

    I decided to rank the cuties of the Pokéverse, and it wasn't easy, but here's what I came up with.

    46. Sylveon

    You get a two for one with these two, because who can choose?

    38. Stufful

    How can a colorful little nebula be so cute? I don't quite know, but Cosmog does.

    36. Manaphy

    Pumpkaboos are the only Pokémon to come in a variety of sizes, from small to super size.

    Pancham is a fighting type that means business, but who could fight with that face?!

    32. Dratini

    Dratini eventually becomes the sleek Dragonair and the mighty Dragonite. In the meantime, it's an adorable wet dragon noodle.

    31. Togepi

    Togepi is one of the OG cuties. We watched Togepi grow from an egg to a star, and no I'm not crying — you're crying.

    30. Shaymin

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    Shaymin is like a hedgehog, but instead of spikes, it has leaves and flowers. Pretty delightful trade if you ask me.

    29. Munchlax

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    Munchlax is the equally hungry, equally endearing prequel to Snorlax. When they're not eating, you can catch them snoozing.

    The expression on Wooper's face is one of the best things in all of Pokémon.

    Drifloon just float around like little, dangerous balloons.

    21. Ampharos

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    Ampharos kind of looks like a dinosaur, but cuter than any animated dinosaur I've seen. Bonus points because I love its color scheme.

    20. Espurr

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    It is a puppy? It is a kitty? It looks fluffy, and the purple eyes add to the appeal for sure.

    19. Joltik

    You probably never imagined yourself thinking a spider way cute, but Joltik's here to change that.

    One of the original three, his big eyes and heart-wrenching backstory make Charmander pretty hard to resist.

    11. Cyndaquil

    The Pokémon Company / Via giphy.com

    This Johto starter is so cute that you almost forget about the fire spikes all over its back.

    10. Oddish

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    Is it a little berry? Is it a tiny plant? Doesn't matter — I love it.

    9. Torchic

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    Torchic is a happy little fire chickadee just hopping around and setting things aflame.

    8. Squirtle

    The 151st Pokémon is also one of the cutest for sure.

    3. Turtwig

    Turtwig is another Pokémon that gets points for being part-plant. It's also a sweet little turtle that is clearly very enthusiastic about the drums.

    2. Jirachi

    The Pokémon Company / Via tenor.com

    This steel/psychic type mythical Pokémon even has a cute legend attached to it. If you encounter a sleeping Jirachi and write your wishes on the notes on their forehead, they will make that wish come true.

    1. Oshawott

    The Pokémon Company / Via giphy.com

    Oshawott is just the cutest little sea otter in the whole world — the end.
