Things you were thought pronounced a certain way but was wrong once you seen the anime?

    Like things you thought were pronounced a certain way but once you seen the anime say the name it wasn’t what you thought it sounded like.

    My most recent example was thinking Mohn was pronounced like the “mon” in Pokémon. However when Lusamine said it’s pronounced “moan” I was shocked.

    .....How it's actually pronounced I don't acknowledge and use Skid-do like it should be. Ski-doo is just plain dumb.

    Unova. I kept pronouncing it like "you know-va" until I saw the anime.

    Also, Clemont's name because for some reason, my brain wants to be all proper and say "cle mawnt" with an emphasis on the letter t.

    You know it's named after the jet ski thing, right? It's "Ski" + "Skid" + "kid" + "Sea-Doo(R)". That's where it's getting its pronunciation from.


    And I'm probably speaking for everyone with being annoyed at how "Illumise" was pronounced. Not "ILL-oo-miss" or "ILL-oo-mize", no, it has to be "ILL -oo-MEE-zay".

    I pronounced Kyogre like “kee-aura-gee” and also pronounced Poocheyena like “poo-cheen-ya” and Mighteyena like “might-cheen-ya”.

    Mind you I was a child and I didn’t know until the anime came up.

    I don't usually watch the dubbed version of the anime, but when I played Black and White in English I remember thinking that Dent's English name was supposed to be pronounced as "Chi-lan", but then I realized that it's pronounced more like "Si-lan" when I watched the first few episodes of the Best Wishes dub.

    I thought it was "Arsseus" but turns out it was "Arkeus".

    Dragalge Why do you hate Lorde so much?

    Not a Pokemon but Guzma.

    No it will always be “G + uh + z + ma”! Not Gooz + ma!

    I thought that it was pronounced Goo-zu-ma. That’s how it’s pronounced in Japanese. Is it pronounced Guhzma in the English dub or you just prefer saying it Guhzma?

    I pronounced Kyogre as Kai-org before seeing the Team Aqua and Magma finale episodes in Hoenn. I feel embarrassed to admit that.

    They say it as Gooz + ma. Guzma isn’t gooey. =(
