I say Phione like Phy-oh-ney, not Phe-oh-ney, and I say Gible like Gi-bul, not Gib-ul.

Chingling - chang-a-ling
I did that too.

As for my opinion on Regice, since it's written as レジアイス (Re-ji-ice) in Japan, I just go with that.
Pidgeot, to me, is Pid-jot, though the Japanese is "Pidgotto" (Pidgeotto in Japan is "Pidgeon")
Tropius is as in "tropism" rather than "tropical". I should've guessed.
Bonsly, as in Bonsai trees. Makes sense since it looks like one.

I still have a habit of pronouncing Arceus as "AR-see-us" or "Ar-KAY-us".

A friend of mine (Ultra Pidgeot) pronounces Blastoise like Tortoise. "BLAST-uss". Oh, and "PIDGE-ut." And "Loo-GEE-uh" instead of "LU-gee-uh".

Meh-lotic (Like Melodic)
Ross-eh-lia
Ill-uh-mee-seh

Arceus [aɾkeːus].

That means I don't pronounce an sound, but instead a long [e], like deus in latin. Furthemore I give emphasis to the second syllable, so it sounds more like "Arc Deus".
I would give a list with all pokemon names but...

I pronounce Pidgeotto the way Italians would prounce it instead of Pidge-EE-oto. I pronounce Ho-oh How-how, as my friend told me it was pronounced like that about 10 years ago and I only recently found out it isn't. And I pronounce Arceus Ark-ey-oos. Don't know if that's the correct pronounciation.
