    The 25 Most Huggable Pokémon

    Original 151 only. See Least Huggable here.

    25. Poliwhirl

    The Pokémon Company International

    Not as mean as Poliwrath or as gross and slippery as Poliwag, Poliwhirl is the perfect Poli- to hug.

    24. Farfetch'd

    The Pokémon Company International

    I really appreciate Farfetch'd's moxie and persistence, despite being endangered and hunted for its deliciousness. I would gladly give it a hug of respect.

    23. Mewtwo

    The Pokémon Company International

    I think it would take a lot to convince Mewtwo to hug you, making the sentiment behind it all the stronger once it actually happened.

    22. Wigglytuff

    The Pokémon Company International

    I want to hug Wigglytuff in such a way as to boop my nose against its hair doodle thing. Is that weird?

    21. Lapras

    The Pokémon Company International

    Lapras' picture is in the dictionary, next to the entry on "kind eyes."

    20. Psyduck

    The Pokémon Company International

    As a fellow migraine sufferer, I feel like all Psyducks could benefit from a (gentle) hug.

    19. Clefairy

    The Pokémon Company International

    Weird singular tooth aside, that's a pretty adorable Pocket Monster.

    18. Growlithe

    The Pokémon Company International

    I already hug any real-life dog, so I would very gladly hug this fake anime dog.

    17. Vileplume

    The Pokémon Company International

    Vileplume may smell very bad, but look at that smile and those inviting arms. I can hold my breath more easily than I can say no to that face.

    16. Dragonite

    The Pokémon Company International

    Super-intelligent mind, super-snuggable arms.

    15. Squirtle

    The Pokémon Company International

    Squirtle is in a constant state of about-to-hug.

    14. Vulpix

    The Pokémon Company International

    Not one molecule of Vulpix is unadorable.

    13. Pikachu

    The Pokémon Company International

    I would like to hug Pikachu, but I would LOVE to hug Pikachu while he said "Pika pika" over and over.

    12. Arcanine

    The Pokémon Company International

    I would feel so safe hugging this big dog.

    11. Chansey

    The Pokémon Company International

    A hug from Chansey is like a hug from the teacher you've always admired and whose approved you've desperately craved.

    10. Cubone

    The Pokémon Company International

    Let's face it — Cubone could really use a hug.

    9. Sandshrew

    The Pokémon Company International

    Sandshrew is misunderstood and lonely, please hug her always. Hug her and never let go.

    8. Mr. Mime

    The Pokémon Company International

    I'd hug Mr. Mime right after I asked him where he got those amazing shoes.

    7. Charmander

    The Pokémon Company International

    I don't care if I'm vaguely burned by his tail, I still wanna hug the stuffing out of a Charmander.

    6. Bulbasaur

    The Pokémon Company International

    Terrible starter, terrific hugger.

    5. Raichu

    The Pokémon Company International

    Something about those chubby lil' arms really makes me wanna go in for a hug.

    4. Eevee

    The Pokémon Company International

    Just look at Eevee. Who wouldn't hug Eevee?

    3. Snorlax

    The Pokémon Company International

    I'd be mildly afraid of my back being crushed, but the risk would 100% be worth it.

    2. Ninetales

    The Pokémon Company International

    I wanna get lost in those tails, of which there are, I believe, nine.

    1. Electabuzz

    The Pokémon Company International

    Probably not everyone's #1 choice for Most Huggable Pokémon, Electabuzz is nonetheless my top candidate. Big, welcoming arms? Check. Soft, furry chest to rest my head against? Check. Tail that could wrap around my back for added snugness? Check. He's a triple threat, and I'm not talking about his Thunder Punch-Lightning Bolt-Body Slam combo.
