    I used to pronounce Xatu as Ex-ah-tu and Arceus as Ar-see-us.

    I've mispronounced a few before, like Braviary (I pronounced it BREE-a-varry), usually because I misplace a letter when pronouncing it.

    I'm still not sure whether Rayquaza should is officially pronounced "ray-QWAH-zuh" or "ray-QUAY-zuh". I've always used the former, although I've heard it said both ways. Also, Kyurem is a little confusing for me; I tend to alternate between "KEE-oo-rem" and "KAI-oo-rem."

    As for Arceus, I used to say "ar-SEE-us," but now I've grown accustomed to "ar-KEE-us."

    EDIT: Oh yeah, it took me forever to figure "Alomomola" out. >.<
    Alos, I've always pronounced "Sceptile" similarly to "susceptible," as in "SUSS-sep-tile"

    actually, both ways of saying arceus is technically right, and only ar-kay-us is wrong

    @ everyone else, just remember alomomola is just a palendrone and is pronounced al-o-mo-mo-la

    I called Dialga 'Dial-gah'.
    Giratina was 'Ger-uh-tie-nuh'.
    xD I don't recall mispronouncing any other pokemon names, though.

    Palkia: pal-EE-ka, pal-pack-ee-ah (yes. Palika and Palpackia.)
    I rarely watch the TV show/movies, so the way I mentally pronounce the names of Pokemon can be very weird.

    I used to pronounce Rattata as Rat-a when I first started playing Pokemon.
  14. Gelatino95

    Gelatino95 Not a tool

    That's how House pronounces it, therefore it is correct.

    I put in an extra syllable. Rattatata.

    Sceptile I thought was pronounced different, and rayqauza, didnt really have trouble with anything else.

    rashiram i pronounced rash-er-rom.

    I stand by:

    Kyo-gray, two syllables, not rhyming with "ogre".
    Kyew-rem, likewise two syllables.
    Aw-dee-no. It's like audio, only with an n inserted and the i lengthened.
    Sep-tile, the c is silent.
    Scyther: the c is silent, and the th is as in "thing", not as in "father".
    Croo-co-dial, a long oo like in "choo", as opposed to a short o like in the etymological "crook".
    Why not? (Ie not rhyming with "astronaut".)

    I vary on:

    The stress in Giratina, should it be on the second or third syllable?

    I used to use, but have corrected:

    Ray-kwah-za. Once I figured its name is partly derived from astronomical quasars, I changed to ray-kway-za.

    Ereshk Still planning

    I probably pronounce wrong lots of the pokémon names (especially gen IV/V), because I tend to adapt the names to my language, which annoys my anime-loving friend. (names are pronounced correctly in the anime)
