Best answer

I looked through the PokéDex and only found five spider-based Pokémon (oddly, none of them have eight legs):

  • Spinarak
  • Ariados
  • Galvantula
  • Dewpider
  • Araquanid

  • And maybe Joltik

Let me know if I missed any!

You forgot Joltik (based on a Jumping spider or a Tarantula)
Aren't scorpions related to spiders? I'd like to mention Skorupi, Drapion, Gligar and Gliscor if this is the case.
I always thought Joltik was based on, well, a tick. I can see the resemblance to the jumping spider, though, so I'll add it in. And scorpions are arachnids, yes, but the Skorupi and Gligar families are based on scorpions specifically. The asker only asked for spider-inspired Pokémon.
Also Metagross
You forgot surskit which is literally a water spider
No, Surskit and Metagross are not spiders (also water striders are not spiders)
