    Default How Do YOU Pronounce "Pokemon"?

    This is a topic I made out of spontaneous curiosity. Almost every Pokemon fan I meet pronounces "Pokemon" differently than I do, and because we're all typing to each other on the forums and not actually speaking to each other I don't know how you guys pronounce it.

    Me, I pronounce it PO-KEE-MON.

    Since there's an accent mark above the e, it should be pronounced Poe-kay-mon.

    I don't know. In the first season of the show, the characters pronounced it poe-kay-mon (or poe-keh-mon. I can't tell the difference). I haven't watched the series in a while but I think they're more lenient with the pronunciation.

    Depends on the situation.

    Po-kay-mon when I'm being serious, Po-kee-mon when I'm not being serious and "Po-kee-mans" when I'm being completely silly.

    I'm pretty sure that I pronounce it the same way Ash and everyone does in the anime. ^^

    Although, actually, I think I've been saying "Po-kee-mon".


    But you know what, I've realized something about the "Po-kay-mon" pronunciation. When it's said like "Po-kay-mon", and if you say it really fast, it sounds just like like the "Po-kee-mon" pronunciation.

    So now, I'm really not sure which way I've been saying it. ^^;

    Sometimes "Pok-EE-mon" and ocasionaly "Poke-ay-mon"

    Honestly, I was devistated when I, a fan since GSC, learned I had been pronoucing it wrong.

    I know SO many (Non-pokemon fan) adults that pronouce it "Pokeyman" or even "Pockeyman"

    Yeah, I know a lot of adults that say "Pokeymans"...really pisses me off, but I keep quiet about it.

    Poh-kei-mon or Poh-kay-mon

    Ooh good topic!

    I say Poh-kee-mon when I'm speaking in general, because that's how pretty much everyone else pronounces it around here.

    When I'm being fairly serious and talking to other fans, I try to say Poh-kay-mon, since that's more correct.
    My little fanfic corner. Mostly Rocketshippy, deal with it.

    Ash: Huh? I don't see a beautiful girl.
    Misty: Why don't you just turn around?
    Ash: Misty, please. Only one of us can hallucinate at a time.
