    You have to remember that "official" doesn't mean that there's only one correct pronunciation. :P

    Okay, so lately I've been hearing multiple pronunciations of Illumise.
    Can someone elaborate?

    Ha, just the other day I was wondering where Gengar came from- I'd never even thought of a relation to doppelganger.

    I saw Regigigas in one of the movies, and it pronounced its name as... well, actually take a look at this clip. Starting at 35 sec should give you the cry. I think it sounds cool.

    I've heard it said that way before, but I find it one of the more absurd pronounciations I've ever heard (no offense). I'll always say Ill-lou-mize.

    And when I was younger, Eh-luck-tra-buss. That was weird.

    I swear, the guy in Pokédex 3D Pro never saw many episodes of the first season or the first movie ("Mewtwo" is not meant to sound like "Me-too!". Also, I sometimes say Tor-nah-dus instead of Tor-nay-dus because the latter doesn't roll off the tounge as well when said with Thunder-rus and Lando-rus.

    Also, I hate the Swords of Justice's pronounciations. Does that mean I say "Cob-ayl-t"? Is it "Ter-ragh-kotta"? Does that mean, all this time, Viridian City was meant to be pronounced as "Vir-rye-dian City"?!

    A lot of announcers/narrators seem to have this problem.
    Good example would be the Stadium announcer.
    I mean, "E-Kins", seriously?

    I definitely agree. Why isn't it tor-NAY-dus or TOR-nuh-dus/TOR-neh-dus, but instead the clearly phonetically incorrect TOR-nay-dus?

    I don't get why Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion are pronounced the way they are. Because the Japanese and English names are the same as far as Japanese phonetics and their English equivalents go (in terms of spelling), if Cobalion were meant to be pronounced ko-BAY-lee-un, then wouldn't Cobalion in Japanese be ko-be-i-ri-o-n and not ko-ba-ri-o-n? (Character limitations only prove what I'm trying to say.)

    I think it is meant to be Tor-NAY-dus. Also, they seem to ignore the japanese pronounciation for legendaries anyway, as the great debate on how to pronounce Regice only gets more confusing.

    A lot of the Pokedex 3D Pro pronunciations seem to ignore or not know basic etymology. For instance, Cobalion's name comes from the word "cobalt" (pronounced KOH-ballt), so it's quite obviously pronounced "koh-BALL-ee-on", not "koh-BAY-lee-on".

    There's also the problem of guys like me who live in the UK, where we should say "BAH-gon" instead of (Michael)"BAY-gon".

    When I was about 8, I used to pronounce Kangaskhan as can-gasha-can.

    I just found out that Sigilyph is pronounced Si-jee-lyph and not Sig-ee-lyph. I feel kind of dumb.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
