The most richest one is Ho-Oh but instead some people say Ho Ho.

I could never figure out how to say Arceus' name until the movie came out. I still don't know how to pronounce Kyogre.

Also...Golurk...
Go-lurk or Gol-lurk?
Kyogre is Kai-oh-grEE. c; And I think It's Go-lurk, but since it hasn't said in the Anime yet, we'll just have to wait and see. :D

To be perfectly honest, both pronunciations for Arceus can be correct. Considering the Japanese name for him is Aruseusu (notice no hard 'k' sound), the reason for the 's' sound is perfectly understandable. Pokémon Battle Revolution actually had the name pronounced as "AR-see-uss." And a promotional trailer for Arceus and the Jewel of Life had the name pronounced "Ar-SAY-us," though the actual movie had the name pronounced "ARK-ee-us" that you prefer.

So in this case it's a matter of preference. I prefer "Ar-SAY-us," but I don't admonish anyone for preferring either of the other two English pronunciations.

In Destiny Deoxys they quite blatantly say "Ray-KWAY-za" several times. Not sure about the animé itself, but yeah, the correct pronunciation of the middle part is "KWAY"

Actually, according to the animé, the Pokémon wiki, and the possible origins of the name (seen at the bottom of Kyogre's page on Bulbapedia), the correct pronunciation for Kyogre is "Kai-oh-ger," meaning that the 'e' at the end is silent, leaving just a "grr" sound.

Before reading on, do realize that I have never corrected anyone about pokemon names. I hate pointless arguments with friends and fellow pokemon hobbyists :D

Some people say:

Sin-SEE-Noe
Chin-CHEE-Noe
Sin-CHEE-Noe

Does anyone know what it is???
Personally, I Say Chin-CHEE-Noe.
I still call him Chillarmy and Chilliccino (chill-e-chino)
I liked the Japanese names a lot more because they closely stuck with the animal they were based off of.

I will never say KWAY. my friends and I all made a pact in high school about it too when the movie came out. It's Ray-KWA-za and not one can make us think differently :3 This one bugs me the most lol

I use the short I too, but that's because, based on my observation of him, is a snooty pokemon, or is suppose to be. so instead of being Snooty it's Snivy :D

I used to pronounce Ratatta as 'ra-ta-tat' and Raikou as 'rai-koo' when it's supposed to be 'rai-koh'.

I used to say, Spiritbomb instead of, Spiritomb and Driftloon instead of Drifloon. Those were just me not reading their names correctly. xD

I say, Ar-SEE-us, too.

My pronunciation of Pokemon also shifts depending on whether I'm speaking English or Spanish, although it always corresponds to what the anime says. :P

Living in Brazil lets you break the limits of mispronounciation. I'm pretty sure I mispronounciate almost everything, or at least say names with a latin portuguese accent.

Lets see:
Ratatta was"rat-a-tata"

Blastoise was -"blast toy zee"

Ho-Oh was "ho ho"

Raikou was "rai koo"

Kyogre was "ky og ra"

Rayquaza was "ray kwanza"

Arceus is "ar see us"

I had some failures pronouncing the Pokemon names.
