Pokemon Names You Pronounced Wrong

    As we were younger, we had all probably pronounced some pokemon's names wrong. So you can say which ones here.

    Really, I always said Regi-gi-gas instead of regi-gig-us. Also, when Arceus official prnouncing Ar-key-us was released, I always said it that way instead of Ar-see-us

    I use to pronounced Chandelure Chan-de-lere. But once I saw the anime with the subway bosses, it said Chan-de-lure.
    I felt dumb ._.

    I pronounced Roselia 'row-zee-lee-a' and Lucario 'loo-care-ee-o'. I have since corrected myself.

    I stick by my apparently incorrect pronunciations of Nume-el and Guy-ble though.

    lol same here.....

    IDK which one is right, but is the proper pronouncing for venasaur Vee-na-saur or ve-na-saur?

    I say it the second way

    Milotic is one I always pronounced wrong and will continue to do so. I say Mi-lo-tic, but in the animé, they pronounce it as My-low-tic. It just sounds so wrong in the animé!

    The main one would be Skarmory. When I was 9 or so, I misread it as Skamorocky (stupid, I know, but I had never seen one before, and I was 9), and when I caught one, I accidentally hit the yes when it asked if I wanted to nickname it, and put in Skamorocky, and ended up with that for a while. I think I realized my mistake after a week though.

    It annoys me when my mates pronounce them wrong, especially the classics where it's so obvious.

    actually, that's how I first pronounced it, and to me it sounds so right :3

    I used to pronounce audino as "au-dee-no" but its really "au-di-no".
    I pronounced hydeigon as "hi-druh-gon" but its really "hi-drI-gn".
    I pronounced gyarados as "ji-ruh-dos" but its really "geer-a-dos".

    Dragonitor <- Shiny Hunter

    Arceus, uhm.....well I think that's actually all. I started playing Pokemon at a later age so then you pronounce them better automatically. (I think)

    Akwakwak I'm hungry

    Arceus
    Raikou (don't even know how to spell it)
    Misdreavus
    I think that's all.
