24. Farfetch'd

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

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

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

17. Vileplume

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.

1. Electabuzz

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.
