    Default How do you pronounce the word Pokémon?

    I'm just wondering how you say it:
    Pok-ay-mon (supposed to be correct),
    Pok-ee-mon,
    Pok-uh-mon,
    or some way totally different.

    It could go either way with Pok-ah-mon or Pok-ee-mon, but I voted Pok-ee-mon, and now I'm having second thoughts, because it might be Ah, not Ee.

    Ah well. I used to always say it as Pok-uh-mon, but now I've begun pronouncing it as Pog-ey-mans Pok-ay-mon. xD

    I alternate all the time, but I tend to use "Pok-uh-mon." It's how my friend used to say it, even if it has no basis whatsoever.

    My pronounciation varies between Pok-uh-mon, pok-ee-mon, and pok-eh-mon.

    I pronounce it pockemon (poke is like "pocke" in pocket and mon like in monster). That's what they do in the anime to, so I still say it that way. I've heard that before the anime was released outside Japan there was an episode where Pokemon was spelled in english letters and was spelled Pockemon. I know people think that is strange, but even if it doesn't look very good it is still logic. Pokemon is after all Engrish, since "poke" is from poketto (pocket).
