Pokemon names you often mispronounce

    I think it’s pronounced Blaze-eff-alon, since it’s a Fire/Ghost type, and ‘blaze’ is used in a lot of Fire Pokemon’s names (like Blaziken).

    Ignition My son finally did it

    I thought the “Blace” referred to blast as it’s all about explosions since it’s the Fireworks Pokèmon. Both are plausible though

    Ahhh yes Arceus also known as the pokemon that has like 4 "official" pronunciations.

    Really though Slaking.

    I’m pretty sure Slaking is pronounced like “slacking”, as in “slacking off”, because of its extreme laziness. It’s definitely not pronounced “slay-king”. XD

    Think I often got Yveltal pronounced, still one of my favorite legendary Pokemon though.
    And still not sure on the pronounciation on some of the gen 7 that I still get wrong probably, think for the most part I got the majority of them right.

    When Yveltal was first revealed, I initially didn't see that there was another L in between the E and T, and I pronounced it "Yvette-tal". Xerneas, ironically, was a bit easier to pronounce - "Zer-nee-as".

    When I first started Ruby, I use to mispronounce Groudon's name as 'Groodin', for some reason. Yveltal, I STILL mispronounce from time to time, and I've actually gotten into an argument with a friend over the name Arceus a long time ago (he went by the movie name, I went , and still go with, the soft C sound, whether it's wrong or not). And finally, Regice, I kept pronnouncing it as Regi-ice when I was younger.

    Think I kept originally pronouncing it like Y(Why)-vee-tall instead of ee-vell-tall(think I got the hang of it after a few years)

    I used to pronounce Groudon like you said as well, until I realised it’s supposed to be like “ground,” its typing. I still hear it in my head as “Groo-don” though.

    How did you even come up with that pronunciation? It's funny and all but there's no letter N in Rayquaza to begin with.
