    Either Poh-keh-mon or Poh-kay-mon. Not like there's much of a difference.

    It varies for me, but I often say it like "polka, mon", minus the "L".

    Po-Kê-Mohn

    That's how it's pronounced in Brazil.

    Or at least the closest that I can imagine right now...

    Poh-kee-mahn

    And I've stuck with pronouncing it that way.

    Poh-kay-mahn. Because that's how you're supposed to, and hearing "Poh-kee-mon" makes my ears hurt. D:

    I pronounce according to the Spanish accent, I also watch the anime in Spanish (Latin American version - the Spanish Iberian [spoken in Spain] uses a different accent)

    I don't if its helpful, Po-qué-mon - long 'O' sound long 'EH" sound, not sure how to describe it in words. I can't think of a good sound in English that matches the Spanish accent.

    I pronounce Pokemon as Poh-kee-mohn. Pretty much what I think I hear in the games.

    I say "Po-keh-mon" around those who won't get confused, but the more well-known "poke-EE-mon" around those who don't understand. I prefer "Po-keh-mon", though.

    ^ Seconded. I've always pronounced it like that. Mostly because é is pronounced ay here anyways.

    I've only heard it pronounced Pockemon, so that's what I say too, with only short vowels.

    In England, saying it the proper way is practically impossible (poh-KAY-mahn). So we all seem to say it quickly like POH-kuh-mon. I guess it's just our accent.
