    Apparently I can't decide on how to pronounce Arceus, since I use all three pronunciations (Ar-key-us, Ar-say-us, Ar-see-us) interchangeably. I also have really no idea on how to pronounce Kyogre because of its spelling (I used to say key-ogre, recently it's been ky-ogre), so I've been using the Japanese name Kaiorga instead.

    Also, I can't stand the anime's pronunciation of Reshiram (ram with a long A sound), and ever since I learned what its name was, I've been calling it Reshiram (ram with a long A sound) instead. When I was a kid, I pronounced Nidoran as nye-dough-ran. xD I also had the Illumize thing with Illumise's name.

    I also say Cryogonal as cry-og-gon-ul.

    The only two Pokemon I have so much trouble pronouncing (due to my Spanish accent) are Helioptile (eh-leo-op-tal-yol) & Heliolisk (eh-leo-lee-sk).

    This is only tangentially related to the thread, but I feel like I have to post it:

    I had a huge mindfuck just a minute ago. I was writing in my roleplay about a character in Sinnoh who had gone to apply to be a gym trainer under Gardenia, and I went to the 'pedia to look up the names of trainers in that gym. To my surprise, there is no Eternia City, Eternia Forest, and Eternia Gym. It's Eterna. I seriously can't believe I went all that time and never once realized it wasn't spelled/pronounced like I thought it was! Wow...

    I have no idea why but still to this day I pronounce Kyogre's name like "Kai-Gore" even though I know that is totally wrong.

    Since I don't watch the anime much anymore some of the newer pokemon have fallen fate to being mispronounced:

    Arcues - ar-CRU-es

    Alomomola - aL-o-mola

    Reshiram - REI-sham

    Zekrom - ZURK-rom

    Dragalge - dral-GEE

    Florges - floor-ges (Like in gorges, more than one gorge)

    Dwebble - dweeb-le

    Conkeldurr - CONK-durr

    And the very special case of Virizion = Verizon. I wish I was joking about that one, but sadly they've become interchangeable in my mind. It's either "I'm in the middle of catching a Verizon right now!" or "I need to go to the Virizion store."

    Braviary, my word.

    I pronounce it BRAVE-VEE-AR-RI, when apparently the official pronunciation is BRAVE-VEE-AIR-RY.

    Sigh, I like my version so much better.

    I only mispronounce Minun as "Mi-nin".Sometimes I call Plusle "Plus" on accident.

    I keep saying Dewott as "De-watt" until I have been corrected on numerous occasions. And even then, I still keep saying "De-watt"

    Exeggcute and Exeggutor(just for this thread, I immediately search the Bulbapedia for the correct spelling).

    I always misspelled and mispronounce the 'X' and the 'GG' and always make it switch with their correct places. So I always end up with Eggxecute and Eggxecutor and always add the 'C'.

    It's funny because I failed to recover on that error because ever since I played Pokemon(back 2001), it always been like that, considering that these two are Gen 1 Pokes.

    I used to pronounce Rattata with emphasis on the middle syllable instead of emphasis on the last syllable.
