    Po-kee-mon? Po-kay-mon? Po-keh-mon? Po-ka-mon? Poke-mon? Po-tay-to? Po-tah-to? Overall what’s your preference?

    I'm used to Poke-ay-mon. I'm used to an acute-accented E having a long A sound. :p

    I usually call it Poke-kay-mon.

    Po-kay-mon seems to be the most appropriate choice.

    I pronounce it Po-kee-mon but I know that's wrong and it's hard for me to change my habit after over 10 years.

    I know "Po-kay-mon" is the correct pronunciation, but I usually say it so fast that it comes out "Po-ka-mon" anyway.
