I think in the other dub like here in Italy, they mis pronounce almost all the official names, it's because i don't watch the italian dub.

I used to call Electabuzz, Electrabuzz.

I still sometimes call Suicune, Su-i-cun, rather than Swi-cun.

Giratina: JiraTEEna (GiraTEEna official)
Hippopotas: Hip-poh-POH-tas (Hi-po-po-TOSS official, WTF)
Dialga: Dee-ALL-ga (Die-ALL-ga official)
Regice: RE-jee-ice (official RE-jice?)

Oh yeah, I say Raikou as "Rye-ko". Saying it the proper way just sounds silly to me, lol.

I say Gardevoir as "Gar-de-voar" instead of the whole fancy "vwar" thing, haha.

Yeah earlier in the thread(Too lazy to quote) someone said that "Ray-quay-za" sounds stupid in which I agree 100%...
I forgot these three. I pronounce Rayquaza Ray-QWAH-za

Battle Revolution pronounces Dialga 'Dee-al-gah'. I just wondered how they got that because you don't say 'dee-ah-monds'. XD

Oh, and I say 'Poke-ee-mon'. Is that the official way, or am I forgetting the accent?

It's supposed to be "Poh-kay-mon," but from my experience, you're in the majority with that pronunciation.

I agree with you; I've always pronounced the first syllable in "Dialga" like the first syllable of "diamond". Used to pronounce "Arceus" and "Rayquaza" differently, but after digging around at their name origins, I pronounce them the same way as PBR and the anime.

It's always the foreign/legendary names that get ya.

I refuse to acknowledge the name "Bons-LIE". I will forever pronounce it "Bons-LEE", regardless of what anyone tells me. Bonsai tree inspiration be damned.

I thought they said "BONS-lie" in the Lucario and Mew movie.

Same here.

I say "Poke-uh-mon" myself.

A) That movie came out after I stopped watching the anime, so naturally I haven't seen it.
B) I first found out about Bonsly during the days leading up to XD, but I only knew about it through printed previews. Plus my friends pronounced it "Bons-Lee", so I didn't know any better. Sue me.

AAAAAGGGGH, I meant to write "Bons-lee". Stupid "lie" being pronounced the same way at the end of a word (e.g. "Charlie").

Pidgeot like Pidg-jot.

Raikou as Rye-koo.

I saw someone say they pronounce Pokemon like 'polkamon'. I realize I do it too.

For Lopunny, I used to say Low-PUNNY, until I learned it was LAW-punny.
I used to say AR-see-us instead of AR-kee-us.
