    That's what I thought at first, but she kept calling it that. As if that's what she called it.

    Maybe she's just uneducated on that matter or something, I wouldn't know.

    Or maybe she keeps pronouncing it that way to emphasize her opinion on Pokémon. :/

    That sounds like the way a person with a southern accept would say it. I'll continue saying the later.

    The way I think of it is the 'reun' part sounds like the front of 'reunion', followed by a soft 'i' and then 'clus' (rhymes with 'us').
    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.

    JEN-ə-sect. ("ə" is kind of like "uh", or the second syllable in "pencil".)

    I used to pronounce Suicune like soo-ih-coon
    Entei - ehn-ett-ee
    Raikou - ray-koo
    Charmander - char-ah-man-der
    Riolu - rye-oh-loo
    Lucario - loo-cair-ee-oh
    Gyarados - gee-ah-rahd-os (I see it spelled Gyrados a lot, which annoys me)
    Groudon - grooh-den
    Zoroark - zow-roh-rak (It's kinda hard for me to say Zoroark)
    Dusknoir - dusk-noy-err
    Raichu - ray-choo
    Celebi - sull-ebb-ee (Like celebrity)
    Gligar - glih-gurr
    Misdreavus - miss-dree-vee-us
    Mismagius - miss-mag-ee-us

    I'm sure there are more that I pronounce wrong, those are just some of the names.

    This particular mispronunciation is weird to me. It's like "mischievous" and pronouncing the word as mis-CHEE-vee-us even though there's no i between the v and the o.

    I might do it too. It depends on if they mean pronouncing Celebrity like "Cell," which I tend to do, or "Sully," which is what the pronunciation suggests.

    I do both, but not for Celebi. It's only relevant because sounding out a pronunciation is subjective (I've read at least one science book that listed the pronunciation for "Nucleus" as "Nuculus.")

    But as far as Pokemon goes, the one I remember most is that the "SC" in "Sceptile" Isn't pronounced "ssss," as in Cobra Commander's vocal tic.

    One pronunciation that I hear about a lot is Rayquaza. I've heard it pronounced like "Ray-kwah-zuh" a lot, but the 'official' pronunciation is "Ray-kway-zuh". Since its name is based after the word Quasar, which is pronounced "kway-sar".

    I've messed up on my fair share of names, though. I couldn't pronounce Suicune for the longest time, I don't even remember how the heck I pronounced it. I think it was "sooi-sin" or something stupid like that. I just couldn't figure it out for some reason.

    To this day, I've never been sure on Hydreigon's pronounciation. As such, I've been prononcing it Hi-dray-jon, Hee-dre-gon, Hi-dray-gon and Hydrogen (because I was bored for this one). I think that Hi-drei-gon is the closest.

    I also epic fail on Manectric, saying 'Man-ectric' instead of 'Mane-ectric'.

    I used to add an extra 'it' and 'at' in Ditto and Rattata respectively. I also pronounced the C in Sceptile's name, and pronounce Rayquaza 'Ray-kwah-zah' because it sounds better to my ears.

    With English phonetics, it would be hi-DRAY-gon, but with the phonetics of the language from which the name supposedly comes, it would be hi-DRY-gun or something close to that, according to Pokédex 3D.

    Pretty sure it's hi-DRY-gon. If you want to pronounce the entire evolutionary line as it is in German then it would be DY-no, ZVY-lous, und hy-DRY-gon. Richtig aussprache.

    Well, if I were to be technical, I'd replace the u in "gun" with a schwa, but not many people would understand what that means.

    And yeah, I did account for the pronunciation using German phonetics. (:

    It do tend to get a bit itchy when I hear "powkeeman", but I guess that's the standard american pronounciation for it. I mean, both me (italian) and my cousin (half-british and half-french) just say PohKehMon, but I guess that could be kinda hard if you normally speak in a different accent/language.

    I've always pronounced Hydreigon "Hydra-gone". :[

    The "é" sounds like a mix between the long a and the short e, so yeah, it's not "PO-key-mon".

    I'm guessing it'd either be al-lo-MO-mo-la or al-lo-mo-MO-la or something. :/
