    The 25 Least Huggable Pokémon

    Original 151 only. See Most Huggable here.

    25. Seadra

    The Pokémon Company International

    I respect and admire Seadra, but realistically speaking, it would be horrible to hug something with no arms that is also extremely spiky.

    24. Venomoth

    This policy applies to land birds as well.

    I'm not big on hugging any moths, but it's the overall dustiness of Venomoth's body that really keeps my arms at bay.

    23. Magmar

    The Pokémon Company International

    Hugging Magmar would be like hugging a weird uncle who's made of lava.

    22. Sandslash

    The Pokémon Company International

    I don't want to hug Sandslash for obvious, getting-stabbed reasons.

    21. Ekans

    The Pokémon Company International

    Ekans is just a snake, and not even a cool-looking one like Arbok, who actually seems fairly huggable.

    20. Magikarp

    The Pokémon Company International

    I wouldn't want to hug a real carp, and there's almost no difference between a real carp and Magikarp, soooooo...

    19. Victreebel

    The Pokémon Company International

    Have you heard the sound this thing makes? No thanks, man. No thanks.

    18. Beedrill

    The Pokémon Company International

    Like hugging a bee who is also the size of a small bear.

    17. Tentacruel

    The Pokémon Company International

    Best case scenario, you're hugging one of the jewels. Worst case scenario, you're hugging anything else on its terrifying body.

    16. Koffing

    The Pokémon Company International

    There's something strangely huggable about Weezing, who has a sort of "down-on-his-luck" quality about him, but Koffing just seems like a jerk who smells.

    15. Zubat

    The Pokémon Company International

    A bat who won't stop screaming is bad enough without the two, vaguely antenna-like legs being in the picture.

    14. Exeggcute

    The Pokémon Company International

    Like hugging an armful of pompous eggs.

    13. Weepinbell

    The Pokémon Company International

    There's a special place in my nightmares for Weepinbell's mouth.

    12. Weedle

    The Pokémon Company International

    Cute nose, horrifying everything else.

    11. Spearow

    The Pokémon Company International

    Spearow's just a mean bird, and I have a strict anti-mean-bird-hugging policy.

    10. Dodrio

    The Pokémon Company International

    This policy applies to land birds as well.

    9. Fearow

    The Pokémon Company International

    And Fearow is like the queen of mean birds. If Fearow was a person, she'd have nothing nice to say, EVER.

    8. Venusaur

    This policy applies to land birds as well.

    I find Venusaur extremely gross. I am sorry.

    7. Kabuto

    The Pokémon Company International

    OK just please look at Kabuto.

    6. Scyther

    The Pokémon Company International

    Scyther has two horrible blades for arms, and an almost limitless desire to swing them.

    5. Kabutops

    The Pokémon Company International

    The same threatening blade arms as Scyther, but without the personality and charm.

    4. Grimer

    The Pokémon Company International

    Do I have to explain this?

    3. Omastar

    The Pokémon Company International

    Like the scariest octopus beak thing you can imagine, but also with spikes on its shell, just in case you were on the fence about hugging it.

    2. Pinsir

    The Pokémon Company International

    Hello darkness my old friend.

    1. Muk

    The Pokémon Company International

    I guarantee this is the first time Muk has gotten #1 for anything.
