Ariados, the Long Leg Pokémon. The evolved form of Spinarak. Ariados is able to spin extremly strong and sticky webs to trap its adversaries.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Ariados is creepy, probably because it’s based on a spider (despite having only 6 legs), and I don’t like spiders (not quite arachnophobia, but close). It’s the Bug/Poison Pokemon of Gen II.
Stat-wise it’s got okay attack, but pretty bad Speed, though it can learn Sucker Punch to sort of make up for that. Its signature move (before Gen V) is Spider Web, which is the Bug equivalent of Mean Look
