How to counter Pudge
Pudge's mana pool is pretty low and so is his intelligence gains. So heroes that steal mana or take it away from Pudge (Silencer, Medusa, Antimage and Lion) Are ideal laners against him.

Always make sure that creeps are between you and pudge so that he can't hook you, and that you know where he is. If that doesn't work, have an escape plan ready.

If you are mid-laning against a pudge, make sure to wards both sides of the lane, the 150 gold will pay for itself by saving you from an early hook kill pudge snowballing game. It will also notify your teammates when pudge goes to gank other lanes.

Much of Pudge's early damage relies on his hook. If you're laning against him with a hero that has some form of teleport, such as Anti-Mage, get close, and when he casts his hook, teleport out of the way and attack him!
