    I thought that you pronounce Oshawott as O-sha- wot, but it's o-sha-wot

    It's like Garchomp being Gar-CHOMP, not GAR-chomp. It just sounds weird...

    I still pronounce Growlithe as Growl-ee, and I have no idea where I picked that up from or why I still use it.

    Pokemon, the word itself, is derived from 'Pocket Monsters' (I learnt that about 10-12 years ago, when I was first introduced to it).

    Pikachu could be pronounced while your sneezing haha :-).

    At first it is very difficult to pronounce the actual Pokemon characters. They are bit quite frizzy. You may find names that you even can't say properly. You hesitate or paused for a while. I love to see them on T.V. but I am not perfect in pronouncing those names still. Please guide how to name correctly.

    I once pronounced Kyogre as "Kyo-gre" when it's really "Kayo-gre".

    Isn't it Ky-ogre? As in kai? Or am I reading your post wrong?

    Well, I don't know how to break it down like you did, but I know it's pronounced Cry-og-o-nal.

    Xatu = Eksatu. Yeah, I sucked at pronouncing X, and I never saw Xatu in the anime...

    I used to say 'Ill-you-mise' (as in miser) instead of 'mi-say'. I still pronounce Groudon as 'Groo-dawn' and Manectric as 'Man-ectric'. Yes, I'm weird.

    I used to mispronounce a few Pokemon, and with the Pokedex 3D Pro, I seemed to have messed up with quite a lot. At this point, I don't really give a damn anymore, since no matter how some of them are supposed to be pronounced, others will always say it differently.. -_-
