At least in Yellow, they cries remind me of their names, but Carbon's arguments is way to convincent, so I'm not sure, haha!

its probably a coincidence and that you think of the name so your brain tries to find it in the battlecry. Trust me, it's not there. Try it with magnezone for starters...
There definitely often is some sound symbolism between the game cries and the anime voices. Noticed it right off the bat when I bought my first Pokémon games when the franchise came out. Nowadays I sort of study speech sciences, and I definitely think there is often much symbolism in the prosody: syllabic substances in the game noises often seem to match the name's syllables. Also there are similarities in stress, rhythm, and intonation all in all. Not all the voices though, like the aforementioned Jynx. If that Jynx is saying her own name, she's unfortunately going berserk or something!
EDIT: If not their name, there might be some onomatopoeia in the voices. Ghosts often sound "mysterious", there are hissing/swooshing sounds in their voices. Cute Pokémon have high-pitched voices in major. Big and monstrous Pokémon have loud, roar-like voices. Etc.

also on that note, Voltorb sounds like "you lost it", Mew sounds like she says her name 10 times, Rattata sounds like "Hault", Muk sounds like it says "The Muk", Krabby sounds like "Ko-Ko-Kobby" and Drowzee sounds like "Drow-drow-drow-drow-drowzee (bam)" XD
May the odds be EVER in your favor

If you are a true Swiftie (a Taylor Swift fan) like me and not scared to show it, "Drop Everything Now" and copy and paste in your signature.
Its cry sounds the same as its name to me.
I've never noticed that, but now that you say it about the Pikachu, yes.
But then there's stuff like Gardevoir that sound like they are in pain. e3e
