It isn't gonna be fun trying to spell that. I had to check twice to make sure I was spelling it right...

I've been saying "Kangashkan" and "Gyrados" since I was a child. It was a real shock when I found out otherwise.

One of my favorite fanfiction writers keeps spelling Rayquaza 'Rayquasa.'

I always misspell Eletivire.

After all, the name is pronounced Elec-tri-vire, right? That's what throws me off.

All of them. Im dyslexic and have to concentrate hard to get them right (even managed to spell Dyslexia dislexia in a thread starter because I wasnt paying attention enough :-D) I spell words the way I say them then have strategies to get them right. So pokemon names mostly are a task.

Well, let's see. These are the monsters I usually have problems with:
Right spelling: Exeggcute
My spelling: Exxecute [those G letters are just stupid there! >__<]

Right spelling: Feraligatr
My spelling: Feraligator [Sorry Nintendo, I really can't say that without those vowels there...]

Right: Minccino
Mine: Minchino [I mean, you can't say its name like that! and what's with the two C letters?! I was pretty confused when I read that name first time :,D]

Right: Qwilfish
Mine: I actually usually forgot how to write its name in the first place! XD

Right: Magcargo
Mine: Maggocargo/Macgarco

Right: Marshtomp
Mine: Marshstomp

Right: Camerupt [I just found out about this just now :,D]
Mine: Camepurt

Right: Vespiquen
Mine: Vespiqueen

Right: Driflim
Mine: Driflimb

Right: Garchomp
Mine: Garcochomp/ Cargchomp

Right: Hippowdon
Mine: Hippodown

Right: Lickilicky
Mine: Lickylicky

Right: Tangrowth
Mine: Tangogrowth [It seems that I have obession to put O letters around the names to make my pronouncing easier I guess XD Just like the Japanese ^_^; It must be because Finnish has a lot of wovelbased words too.]

Right: Electivire
Mine: Electrivire

Wow, that was quite a lot of typos actually! ^__^; Guess I need to practise those names more then... But I will still pronounce Minccino as Minchino, because the official one is just insane! *>__<

Lickilicky, which I initially had a habit of spelling "Lickylicky".

I learned my error the hard way when I tried to do a google image search on him, and instead got loads of pictures of people doing funny things with their tongues. :p
