    And they can't even pronounced Pokémon right.

    Evil Figment (7:59:44 PM): Ryuu, however shakily you started, I've got to hand it to you that you earned my respect the hard way.

    That's actually how it's pronounced, Ryuu...

    Anyway, their voices seem to have gotten deeper since the Suite Life, also they're EIGHTEEN NOW.

    Why am I not in a Pokemon commercial? D:

    I didn't realize there was so much emphasis on the Kay.

    I jsut listened to the Diamond and Pearl opening theme and Dylan saying Po-Kay-mon... not the same pronunciation, so either PUSA is saying it wrong or the Sprouse twins are saying it wrong.

    EDIT: Bennet the Sage is our tie breaker. He pronounces it the same way PUSA does.

    An E with an accent over it means it's pronounced "ay".

    Where's the pronunciation talk coming from? I don't see a link to a video in that article. Anyway, all I can manage to this is a "meh". The Disney kids/young adults fail to impress, and these two are no less generic than any of the others.

    I don't think I've even seen a Pokémon commercial on television in years. The movie theatres around here play them sometimes as a new game release approaches (I remember seeing a few for Platinum), but that's about it.

    I know, but it's the emphasis that is wrong.

    Despite what some people think, I like them doing it. It brings some new fans who may have never heard of Pokemon.

    I hope no one says that the new generation of Pokemon fans will be nooby because of this. We were all nooby at some point of our internet experience. No matter how long or short. D:

    I'm mostly surprised TCPi was willing to invest as much in an ad as those two might cost (no doubt Disney decides the fee). Pokémon kind of sells itself these days, but I guess a few TV spots couldn't hurt.

    On that note, when was the last time Pokemon ever got a commercial with real people in it? Outside of Japan, that is.

    And "Po-Kay-mon" isn't how I would pronounce it but w/e.
