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)

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.

I pronounce them all good.
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.

Huh, I always thought it was Man-ectric :PI also epic fail on Manectric, saying 'Man-ectric' instead of 'Mane-ectric'.
Magikarp used splash! It's a one-hit KO!
Was that really it? Will wondered. Was that what they were all doing, looking for someone less different? Was that what he was doing? Rachel was dynamic and thoughtful and focused and caring and different in more ways than he could count, but the whole point of Rachel, as far as Will was concerned, was that she wasn't him. There was a flaw in Katrina's logic, then. This thing about looking for someone less different ... It only really worked, he realised, if you were convinced that being you wasn't so bad in the first place.

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.
You know what's frustrating?
