    My little sister used to always say the weirdest poke-nunceations, like Kyogre=Kwai-or-kree-a. :P

    I say po-keh-mon. I just can't pronounce it any other way.
    Similar thing can be said about certain pokemon names. For example, I'll always pronounce Arceus as "ar-see-us" (the same kind of u as in "Luke"). Can't say it the other way.
    I just can't pronounce some of the names the way they're "supposed" to be pronounced because it just doesn't sound right to me.

    Profesco's right, the correct pronunciation is Poh-kay-mohn - that's how the Japanese say it. But I usually just say Poh-kuh-mon, since it sounds more natural to me in English that way.

    Illumise - I-lo-mu-se
    Beartic - Bee-art-ic
    Cryogonal - Cry-a-gon-al
    And probably a few more I'm missing and can't remember...

    I've always wondered if Pineco is Pine-co or pin-echo
    I generally say Sky-zor for Scizor, although I've heard people say it's supposed to be a soft 'i', or scissor.
    Piloswine is a mess. I go between saying poly-swine and pie-lo-swine, and pillow-swine occasionally pops into my head, from hearing others
    I'm not not sure about Houndour. I've always said Houn-door, but I've wondered if it's Houn-dower
    I've always said Sue-i-coon, despite hearing it should be otherwise. Also, Raikou and Entei are Ry-coo and in-tie
    Lugia is also a confusing one. I generally say You-gee-uh/You-jee-uh or Loo-jee-uh.

    I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.

    I never knew what Arceus's real pronounciation is. I pronounce him as "AR-SEE-YUS"

    I believe it's Ark-eus, I remember the official site confirming that.

Of course, it's probably just friendly jesting, so I don't actually mean that seriously. But yeah, you're wrong.
    Um, i believe I said I know that's how is supposed to be pronounced. But I dont like that. I have said that many times.

    Well, my friend calls Salamence SulAmince. Then when I corrected him (SalAmence) he didn't know who I was talking about.
    Sableye was Suboulba. I had no idea how to pronounce his name until I watched an episode with him in the anime :I

    I believe Pokémon names that are the same in both Japanese and English (Pikachu, Seadra, Poochyena, Miltank, and most legendaries) retain as much pronunciation as possible while still keeping it accurate. That would mean that the c in Arceus actually has a soft-c sound, not a hard-c sound (AR-see-us).

    It's a portmanteau of sigil and glyph.

    Arceus is still AR-kee-yuss instead of AR-see-yus

    Scizor is still SEE-zor instead of scissor (I hear a lot of people pronounce it that way<<)

    Raikou was RAI-ku instead of RAI-koe

    Entei went from EN-tai, to EN-tee, to the proper EN-tay.

    Regice is still regi-ice instead of REJ-ice (since the others have regi...)

    Regigigas was regi-GAI-guss, instead of Regi-GIH-guss

    Rayquaza was ray-QUAW-zuh instead of ray-QUAY-zuh but I like the sound of ray-QUAW-zuh better though since the latter sounds awkwardish...

    I still don't know the Machop line.. muh-CHOP or MAW-chop, muh-CHOKE or MAW-choke, muh-CHAMP or MAW-champ...I say them interchangeably...

    I still don't know half of the gen 5 names so I'm probably butchering most of them.

    I still don't even know how to pronounce pokemon.... is it PO-kay-mon, PO-kee-mon, or PO-kuh-mon...I say all three interchangeably...
