Rayquaza: ray-KWAH-za (sounds cooler)
Sceptile: SKEP-tile (I'm just kidding, I pronounce it correctly. Anyone who says SEP-tile is wrong)
Arceus: AR-see-us (I was kidding here too)
Cofagrigus: co-fuh-GREE-jus (sounds cooler than co-FA-gri-gus, plus I work more off the etymology)
Kyurem: CURE-rem (technically speaking it is KYOO-rem, but when said in English, it sounds more like CURE-rem anyway)
Cradily: CRAY-di-lee (wait, maybe I am pronouncing this right)
Bouffalant: BOO-fuh-lont (maybe here too)

And sometimes I say sin-SEE-no instead of sin-CHEE-no, but that is a slip of the tongue on my part and I know I'm doing it wrong.

I say sep-tile and chin-chee-no. And buff-uh-lant.

Arceus as "ars-see-us" and Suicune as "Sue-ee-seen", (the latter makes no sense).

I've always pronounced {milotic} My-Loh-Tick (rhyming with erotic). I don't think relying on the anime for pronounciations is always right, because one of the episodes pronounced {linoone} Lee-Noon, but I think it's officially pronounced Lye-Noon.

First smart person I've seen in this thread. Honestly these people do not have good pronounciation skills.

Honestly, quit it with the flaming. There's no need to bash on people just because they pronounce something differently than you do. You're not setting a very good reputation for yourself.

Groudon. Apparently "Grou" is pronounced "Graw" (like how), not "groo".

And also, Marshtomp becomes either Marss-tomp or Marsh-stomp.
Kyogre - Key-ogre or Ky-org.
I used to pronounce Gyarados as Guy-a-raid-ose, then Jair-a-dos.
I say Troh-pee-us as opposed to Traw-pee-us.
And countless others.

And I always, ALWAYS, mix up the names of Larvitar and Larvesta.

How would you pronounce the accent, anyway?

In French, an E with a forward-slash over it (called an accent aigu) is pronounced "aih", as in tray, but breathier. So, would it be Poh-keh-mon?
