When I say it slow I say puh-kay-mahn, normal speed I say it poh-kuh-manh, which I think is kind of weird.

I voted for the second one because that is how it is pronounced in the anime I am pretty sure.

Poh-Kee-Mahn Most the time.


Poh-Kay-Mahn when I feel like saying it like that.

Where is the all three option? I use the pronunciation of Pokemon random of those three there.

I know it's "Po-kay-mahn" but I'm too lazy for vowel emphasis half the time.

Po-kuh-mahn plz.

Poh-Kay-Mahn or Poh-Keh-Mahn works for me. I voted Poh-Kay-Mahn.

Hey, how about the pronunciations for some of those "poe-kuh-mahn" out there? Cuz let's be honest...how are some of them really said? Ex.: "Miolitc". Be it "my-loe-tik" or "mih-loe-tik"? Perhaps even "mih-lah-tik?" wtf?

~Xanthe.

Lol, yeah. I say that too. Isn't Pokemon supposed to end with a 'mon' though, rather than a 'man?'

The way it's actually pronnounced is Po-KAY-mon, as it's spelt "Pokémon". The acute accent on the "e" makes a "ay" sound. :3

Being as I'm English:

Poh-keh-mon.

Mon. A flat mon. Because the English accent is flat.

And it wins.

:D
