    Default How do you pronounce it?

    Some say it like "Po-key-mon." Some say it "Po-kay-mon." There are a good number of pronunciations of the word, but how do you say it?

    I say it like "Pok-a-mon."

    That's an interesting pronounciation.

    I say like "Poe-key-mon", with lots of emphasis on the O. Probably because of my accent xD

    The correct pronunciation is Po-Kay-Mon but I tend to say Po-Key-Mon or Po-Ka-Mon, I'm just a lazy talker I guess.

    Po-kay-mon. Because that is how it is meant to be pronounced. Because letters with accents.

    "Poh-keh-mohn." The "Poh-key-mahn" pronunciation sounds retarded and the "Poh-kay-mahn" pronunciation sounds weird. :-P

    Sometimes I pronounce it Po-key-mon, sometimes I pronounce it Poke-a-mon. I pronounce it a lot of different ways, it depends on what I'm feeling like saying.

    "POH-keh-mahn", which is closest to the Japanese pronunciation. It irritates me to no end when I hear someone pronounce it differently—my mother says "PEAU-kuh-mahn" (yes, PEAU) because of her accent, and my brother says "poh-KEY-mahn" (extra emphasis on the KEY) just because it bugs me.

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.

    The official pronunciation is poh-kay-mon because of the accent mark above the E, but I don't think it really matters how you pronounce it considering the Anime has already used various different pronunciations.

    I read it as Po-KEH-mon since that was the pronunciation used in the Portuguese dub and it fits our national accent more.

    I use the correct way, Po-Kay-Mon. It just sounds better to me.

    I pronounce it as Po-KA-mon. I much prefer the pronunciation Po-KEY-mon, but I can't seem to make it my standard. Old habits die hard.

    Who is this git?
