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)
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".
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.
