    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 thought Sableye was Sabe-lee-ay. I watched an episode of the Anime and was surprised to learn it was Say-bul-eye.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Only ones I pronounced wrong were Rayquaza (ray-KWAH-za) and Chimecho (CHIM-eh-cho, which is weird).

    The future surrounds us.

    Let us begin.

    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

    Ive always pronounce it like that too. I just don't get Kyo - GRE anyway it is spelt like it would be pronounced Kyoger.

    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?"

    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:

    Kyogre- Kee-ORG
    Rayquaza- Ray-KU-zah

    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.

    That's how I pronounce it too, and I wasn't aware it was incorrect. How is it "supposed" to be pronounced?
