    I used to call Vivillon VIVILLION, and I sometimes been calling him/her that as well. LOL @ Me adding extra letters on Pokemon's names

    Vi-vill-on instead of Vi-vee-on (Don't care what you damn frenchies say)
    Shoo-sheen instead of Swee-coon (I do this purposely as an inside joke)
    Gare-i-doss instead of Gare-a-dose (Another inside joke)
    Rai-koo instead of Rai-koh (Habitual, I think it sounds better)
    Shant I tell you of last night's dream?

    I believe that is actually the official pronunciation of Kyurem. It sounds like the counterfeit card had the correct spelling.
    Actually, it was spelled "Kyurim", had 18000 HP, a retreat cost of 8, and the back of it was purple (instead of blue)... and that's nothing compared to the spelling and grammar errors on it. The copyright information mentioned "Nitedno".

    Regice's official pronunciation is Regi-ice, but I preferred to call it "Rag-guise" because single letters aren't known to be pronounced twice.

    Thanks for reading.

    Rayquaza, which I pronounce Ray-KWAH-zah, rather than Ray-QUAY-zah. Which is the official pronunciation, right?

    I hear SO MANY people pronounce them "MINE-foo" and "MINE-shao." And I always think, "what, is it a German Pokemon?"

    (It's supposed to be mee-EN-foo and mee-EN-shao, by the way ^_~)

    Haha, soo-seen sounds like my nephew's pronunciation. Wonder why that one's so hard for the young 'uns.

    Yass, bitch! YASS! I'm the same way. I always imagine her when I see the name. The one name I know I mispronounce and don't care is Ar-SEE-us. It's supposed to be Ar-KEY-us to prevent any offensive misunderstandings in British-English speaking countries (Ar-see-us sounds like arse, which is British slang for ass, which is American slang for booty). But I think the entire fanbase still calls him Ar-see-us regardless due to it being the implied pronunciation thanks to the spelling. I mean, who pronounces "ce" like "ke"? No one. Arceus for life, man.
    "Arc" is pronounced "ark." So Arceus.

    You know what's funny? I always thought it was ARK-ee-iss, with the 'k' sound, but absolutely everyone else I know pronounces it with an 's' sound, so I always assumed I was wrong, heh.

    I always thought it was ray-QUAZZ-uh. Then again I don't watch the anime or movies, so I don't really know.

    Well like I said before, Ar-KEY-us and Ar-SEE-us are both official. As is Ar-SAY-us. It's even in its Bulbapedia trivia section. Pretty much everyone uses Ar-see-us because its pretty obvious that it was going to be official until the British thing came up.

    Waaaait... You mean I've been saying Raikou wrong this whole time too?! I thought I fixed it when I switched from "Rai-OH-koo" to "Rai-koo". Although I do agree, "Rai-koo" sounds a lot better.

    I also say Kyurem like "Kai-yurr-um". Is this the proper pronunciation?

    No, pretty sure it's pronounced "Keeyu-rem" (basically, "Q-rem"), or at least that's how they say it in the anime.

    WHAT?! This is one of my favorite pokemon! Are you telling me it's not Chin-choo? I'm going to pretend I never discovered this.

    EDIT: Also, I remember hearing a while back that the pronunciations of Deino, Zweilous, and Hydreigon were something weird. I say Day-no, Zway-lous, and Hy-dray-gon, but I'm curious what they are supposed to be.

    Sorry, but it certainly isn't Chin-choo. :P I guess it could look that way if it were more French, but it's more Japanese in terms of pronunciation.

    Deino, Zweilous, and Hydreigon are pronounced the same way as the German numbers, ein (1), zwei (2), and drei (3). So it's: Die-no, Zvai-lus, and Hai-dry-gon.

    When I was younger, I would mispronounce Scyther's name "SKY-ther," Gyarados "Guy-arados," and Togepi "Topegi." I kept doing this for a while, an no one would correct me. I don't know if they thought those were the correct pronunciations too or they just found it funny and were douches to not let me know I was mispronouncing them.

    Currently, and this is the biggest offender, I keep pronouncing Arceus as "Arseus." I know the correct pronunciation, but I keep pronouncing it like I've always have before I heard the correct pronunciation.

    Oh god. I'm horrible at pronouncing things.
    Suicune is SOO-i-seen, Hydregion is Hydra-digimon, and yes, I have the same Arceus problem as TBAM.

    On a semi-related note, I always get PO'd at the anime whenever they mispronounce Ratatta. I myself used to pronounce it Rat-ta-tat-ta, but now I pronounce it correctly. The anime on the other hand pronounces it 10 different ways, including Rat-a-tat and how I used to mispronounce it.

    Once in a while I find myself pronouncing Dragalge as "Druh-gaggle", 'cause I've been hearing more people using the phrase "a gaggle of" something recently. P:
