Pokemon Names You Pronounced Wrong

Discussion in 'Poképolls' started by Angeltripper, Feb 26, 2012.

    Atari Did it on 'em

    Since I've been pronouncing many Pokemon names wrong since I was in elementary/middle school, I never really bothered to correct them. Everyone knows who I talk about anyway so it doesn't really matter.

    Examples are Missingno. (used to call it 'misshingo', now I just say missing number), and Raikou (still pronounce it 'raiku').

    Oh boy, I have no idea. There's waaaaay too many to name, but the big ones I remember is Marill. We had no idea how to pronounce it until after we saw the first movie, and we were sounding it out in many different names. It was funny.

    And because I couldn't hear the kid very well on the bus, I thought Mewtwo and Mew were pronounced "Nyuutwo" and "Nyuu". Yeah...

    uxie, arceus, raicou, milotic.
    uxie: is it ux-ie or youx-ie? I say the second one...
    arceus: ar-ce-us or ar-see-us? I am interchangeable
    raicou: ray-coo is how I say it
    milotic: my-lo-tic it sounds better mi-lo-tic

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    The funny thing is that some of the English names were obviously pronounced differently in the Dutch dub. It isn't a problem, but when saying the Electabuzz, the Buzz part sounds a lot flatter then if an American/Brit would say the name, which is hilarious.. xD

    Therefore, to me, there are no real truths, only interpretations off.

    Of course the Dutch dub isn't going to put on a fat American accent, so the pronounciations will be different eitherway.

    I'd been pronouncing Houndour as "Hown-door". I couldn't watch the anime during Gens 1-3 so I had no idea it rhymes with "hour".

    The only two I can think of are Giratina (Which I pronounced Gye-rah-tee-nah) and Arceus (Which I pronounced Are-see-us).

    Venasaur-Fen-A-Saur instead of Veen a saur

    I think the worst person for pronouncing pokemon names is definetly the announcer from pokemon battle revolution. For example, he calls Arcanine 'Our-Ka-Nine' instead of 'Arc-An-In'. Really annoys me most of the time.

    I pronounce:

    Deino as Dei-No.
    Rayquaza as Rey- Qua - Za.
    Arceus as Ar-Seus.
    Gigalith as "Giga" and not "Jiga".
    Milotic as "Mi-Lo-Tic".
    Regigigas as "Re-Ji-Gi-Gas"

    But I am sure plenty of them are wrong.

    I pronounce Snivy with a short sounding "I". From what I've heard on the anime, this is wrong.

    I and apparently also according to the anime, I pronounce Druddigen wrong. I consider the anime the right way to say the names
