I used to pronounce Pidgeot as Pidgey-Ot
I used to pronounce Pidgeot as Pidgey-Ot
Groudon - Ground-on
Rayquaza - Ray-quAh-zah
Regice - Re-gice
Kyogre - Ki-ogre (I think it's Kai-ogrey)
Arceus - Ar-seh-us
I have always pronounced Kyogre as ky-gore (I assume it's meant to be ky-o-gerr).
Is the "c" in Sceptile pronounced or not? I've always said "Skeptile" instead of "Septile"
And Metagross - is the "gross" pronounced "gr-oss" or "gro-ss"
I don't watch the anime so I'm probably mispronouncing Tepig too. (Is it "teh-pig"?)
"I completed the National Dex at 12:03am on January 5th, 2013: if Gen VI is announced anytime soon I'm gonna be seriously angry."
January 8th, 2012: Pokémon X and Y announced. Seriously angry.
For me I would say Ky-gore instead of Kyogre and that was becuase I didn't pay that much attention when I first saw its name.

Not a Pokemon but I used to call Unova- Ah-no-vah
I'm pretty sure there's more but that's all I can think of.

Growlithe - Growlthee (I always read it too fast)
Arceus - Arseeus
Rayquaza - Rayqwaza
Ariados - Adios (xD)
Illumise - Illoohmise (I've pronounced it right after watching the anime)
Braviary - Brivary
Regice - Rege-Ice
Kyogre: Kwoy-Gr. Don't know why, I still call it that sometimes.
Groudon: Grew-Don. I saw Jirachi Wish Maker, started saying it right. But I still occasionally call it Grewdon.
Those are the main two. I think there are others, but I can't remember if I'm right or not.

For all of you who thought you pronounced regice wrong when you said Regi -ice instead of Reg - ice it IS pronounced Regi - ice

Right off of the top of my head all I can think of it Chimecho which I thought was Chime-cho. Also I though Kyogre was Kie-Oh-Gree.
(template from Jerkfighter)
I did, and do, and always will, pronounce Kyogre as "KYO-ger", no matter what people say to me, and how much I'm nya-nya'd at.
As a little kid, I used to call Starmie "Stonie", 'cause at the time I saw "Bye Bye Butterfree", I was quite young, and tried emulating the way Misty called out her Starmie (that's how it came out from her when I heard it)
And I pronounce Ponyta as pony-Tah, while I hear others say po-Nee-dah

When I was younger, I couldn't say Zigzagoon. It just became a blabbery word that rimed with gadgetron
"Mary had a little lamb,
its wool as black as coal
It came into her room one night,
and feasted on her soul"
JK, I had some trouble with the Hydreigon line for a little bit..
Back when I was really young I use to call Crobat "Corbat" and Phanpy "Phanphy"
Me and my brother used to pronouce "Suicune" as "Suc-e-nine". When we heard it in the movie, we both turned to each other like "Waaaaaa?"
biatch im fabulous
I thought Hydreigon was "Hy-dredge-eon".
I still say "Ray-kwah-za" and "Ar-see-us", I think they sound better than "Ray-quay-za" and "Ar-kee-us" :/
Oh, and my sister used to call chansey "Chas-ney" XD
And my dumb friend says "Groo-don" and "Ky-rogue"
Palkia = Palka. Umm, I couldn't see the I very well? [/excuse]
Suicune = Sweet-cune. I was thinking of candy.
Arceus = Arse-us. I'm not even gonna explain this one. [/EPIC fail]
I can't think of too many ATM, but:
Hippopotas- Hi-poe-PAH-tas instead of Hi-poe-pah-TAS (I still think the former is more right, though, since it's a similar pronunciation to hippopotamus).
Chimecho- CHAI-me-cho instead of Chime-ECHO (for some reason I didn't notice it was supposed to be a pormanteau of chime and echo).
Illumise- Il-LU-mis instead of Il-lu-MI-se (the latter doesn't make too much sense IMO)
Seviper- SEH-vi-per instead of Se-VAI-per (another one where IDK how I missed the "viper" part of his name).
My friend knows someone with even wackier pronunciations, though:
I'm fairly certain it was a 5 year old or something, though.
Also, I'm still not clear on a few of the 5th gen ones, namely Jellicent (it's supposed to be JELL-i-sent, correct?) and Zweilous (My Dad knows some German and says that the Zw is pronounced like a Sv or something, but IDK).
Hard to say anymore as it's been years (I usually get them right the first time these days anyway). I pronounced them like how I read them until the anime said it. Though I thought Mewtwo was "Newtwo" when a kid was telling my brothers and I about him, and I couldn't hear him properly on the bus until I saw the name. Y-Y-Yup.
