    Poke-e-mon.

    ('e,' as in the letter E.)

    Po-kuh-mon

    Poh-kay-mon is WAY too much of a mouthful and it sounds like I'm trying to be some kind of idiot. Americans probably find it easier to say poh-kay-mon, though. Poh-kuh-mon is quick and easy to say, and (I think) it sounds smarter.

    I've always pronounced it "Poh-kuh-mon", just like everyone else I know. Occasionally I decide I'm going to pronounce it properly ("Poh-kay-mon"), but I never actually do.

    pokiemon
    I use to pronounce it differentially but that was way back when I was about 10/11.

    I never really say it as someone mentions it, I skip the intro and start shouting attacks & throwing plastic balls ^^

    I've been trying to pronounce it the right way thanks to Bulbapedia's precise facts about Pokémon

    Though I have to get used to it... I used to pronounce it as /poh-kuh-mon/

    Default How do you pronounce Pokémon?

    Apparently the official pronunciation is "poh-kay-mahn", but to me, that sounds really stupid.

    I prefer "poh-keh-mahn".

    Also, it's ポケモン, not ポケイモン.

    Personally depends on who I'm talking to at the moment.

    But usually Pok-eh-mon.

    The difference between 'keh' and 'kay' is miniscule if not nonexistence. It's going to depend on your accent what it actually sounds like.

    My pronunciation comes out somewhere between "POH-keh-mahn" and "POH-kay-mahn". My mother pronounces it "PEAU-kuh-mahn" (yes, you read that right, "PEAU"). My brother deliberately pronounces it "Pokey Mon" just to piss me off.

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

    According to the way it's written in my language,
    Poket-mon

    Or, if I'm speaking in English,
    Poh-keh-mon (long pronounciation on the "o")

    Wikipedia's Pokémon entry says that it's pronounced "Poh-kay-mon", and so that's what I follow.
