    Pooch-y-en-a and Might-y-en-a. Should be Pooch-y-ee-na and Might-y-ee-na. Seeing as they get their names from the animal Hyena, Hy-ee-na.

It's funny, because I think the announcer also did voice work in the anime (the first voice of James) and pronounced the word Ekans like it should of been pronounced. It's just.. odd.
    The announcer. Oh god that announcer. It's like that for all those games. In Battle Revolution about half of the names are mispronounced in some way and the option to turn the guy off couldn't be more welcome.

    I am Turkish and the turkish dub of the anime was pronouncing almost everything wrong. Here are some:

    Gengar as jen-jar (like in Jenny) or even jin-jar. Also they were pronouncing mew and mewtwo with a v, instead of a. And I am not sure but Ivysaur was something like "I-was-ar". Shouldn't it be like ivy and saur ( as in dinosaur)

    Going to second what Jimlaad43, I hate it when people cannot pronounce the 'yena names.
    I'm burning up with my hatred for you, runt!

    I don't really know what the proper pronunciation for Arceus is, as in Britain we call Arceus 'arc-ee-us' instead of 'arse-ee-us' but in Arceus and the jewel of life it was pronounced 'Arse-ee-us' and I could not help but jeer 'The god of butts is descending from the heavens!' whenever Arceus appears.
    But it does make me cringe a little whenever I hear what I presume is the correct American way of saying its name... *giggles*

    To this day, I still hear "nye-do-ran" instead of "nee-do-ran". And to this day, I'm kind of self-conscious about being wrong (but I can't be. They have to sound similar to "needle" since their entire design is poison based)

    I used to think Suicune was a play on the word "Suicide" so I pronounced it Soo-ee-soon. I'm really sorry for being dumb when I was younger.

    Also, the one that gets me the most is Kyogre. I pronounce is Ky-ogre but a lot of people pronounce it Kai-ogre.. I'm not sure which one is right anymore.

    Too bad I'm too impatient.

    I feel that Pokémon can be correctly pronounced two ways. the first is based off of the japanese pronuciacion /pokemon/ with the o representing a long "o" sound and the e representing the long "a" sound. The second is based of the original english words "pocket monsters" /pɒkɪt mɒnstɚz/ which would tun into /pɒkɪmɒn/ with the ɒ representing the o in "pot" and the ɪ representing the i in "pit".

    I've always said it like "Kai-ogre". I think that's how they say it over in Japan, and it makes more sense... doesn't "kai" mean "sea" in Japanese?

    Anyways, I get irritated whenever someone mispronounces any Pokemon name, and the main offenders usually have no idea what they're even talking about. Ever since I learned that an accent-E meant it made an "eh" noise, I've gotten annoyed by people saying "Po-KEE-mon" instead of "Po-kuh-mon". Come to think of it, it should be said like "Paw-keh-mon", like pocket monsters, the franchise's real name.. the more you know, the stranger the world becomes.

    Personally, it f***s me off that the "correct" pronounciation of Arceus is Ark-key-us (or whatever it is) because I don't see a K in the word Arceus, do you?

    ARE-see-us was how it was said first and it's what most people go by, so I firmly stand by that as the correct version. That's also how it was said in Battle Revolution. I personally have never heard ARE-key-us outside of the movie and Pokedex 3D Pro.

    Arceus at times, I admit it's Annoying, and Villion, for some Reason, Anime has Ignored the "L's" so I go with there Logic and say NO L's
