Hydreigon is a huge offender; I have no idea how to pronounce the fucking thing!

Here is a list of what I have tried:

Hyd-DRE-gion
Hyd-DRE-gon
Hy-DRAY-gon

This is just as bad as the time I mangled Gyarados into unrecognizability!

Soo-kyoon forever! Also, I used to drop the 'th' in Meowth when I was a kid, for some reason.

I pronounce it "High-drigh-gon". No idea if that's the official way or not.

I don't know how on earth to pronounce Hydreigon, so I either say hydrogen, hydrygen or hydregen.

Think of the name origin:
Hy = Hydrea
Drei = German for 3
Gon = Dragon

Thus, you pronounce it High-Dry-Gon

I still say AR-see-us, rather than AR-kee-us. It's the first way I heard it said and it's just the way it looks!

I mean: AR-kee-us would look like Arkeus. Since it's Arceus, you'd think it'd be pronounced with the soft "C" sound.
