I'm sure the Rayquaza one is the biggest one.

My Poke-bros and I would always call it Ray-Kwa-Za and then the dub came along and called it Ray-Kway-Za (rhyming with Quasar). But we gave it the big F-U and ignored that dumb pronunciation.

I said Rai-koo before I heard it in the anime, too. Although I DID hear the anime pronounce it as both Rai-koh AND Rai-koo. Guess they messed up somewhere. x3

If the 'noir' part of Dusknoir is French like I think it is(and considering noir is the French word foe black, it does kind of make sense) it's pronounced Dusk-nware, where the 'ar' sounds more like 'r' is pronounced by itself.

My brother and sister used to call Ho-oh Ho-ho, and it drove me insane. And my best friend somehow ended up thinking Skarmory(Scar-mor-ee) is pronounced Ska-mo-ray, and every single time she says it, I go "WHAT pokemon?" and it takes me forever to figure out what she's talking about every time. Thankfully it's not often.

However I say screw the anime(not just the dub) because I hate it and don't watch it anyway and go with oh-so-popular Rai-koo, Ar-see-us, and Ray-qwa-za. XD

I call Ho-oh "Ho-ho" because Ho-oh is a skank.

I call Ho-oh 'Ho-How', unless that's how it's pronounced.

And only just found out after 4 years that it's not Lickililly, but Lickilicky >_>

Some people say:

Does anyone know what it is???
Personally, I Say Chin-CHEE-Noe.
I say SIN-chee-oh, like it was Italian.

Also when people say Pokeymon instead of Pokémon

I tend to ignore people pronouncing things wrong, since I have a bad habit of pronouncing things wrong myself, even after I know how it's said. I think I actually used to get more annoyed when people pronounced it right...

I've always said "Pick-er-chu" and "Poker-mon", but never got annoyed at people saying them correctly. I think the only ones I've ever got annoyed at was Trapinch and Dialga. When R/S came out I was convinced it was "Trap-itch" and would yell at people who said it differently. Same thing with Dialga when D/P came out, but I pronounced that in such a weird way I can't even remember how I said it. xD

In most cases, I think anything goes. But there are some names that are obnoxiously pronounced, and the worst of it is Rayquaza's. I can't stand Ray-kway-za, and it's one of the few names that you seriously have to be trying to fail at.

I USED to say "Are-SEE-us", but when the anime pronounced it "Are-Kee-us", I was alright with that, and now that's how I pronounce it. I also use to say "Rose-lee-uh" until I heard "Rose-el-ee-uh", but I think they're both ok.

I used to think that 'Repel' was pronounced Ree-pul. Until I was 15. Note: I'm still 15 and I still pronounce it that way, because 12 years of pronouncing it like that is too much. I was playing Heart Gold and I suddenly thought 'Waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit a second. Repel is spelled like the word 'repel', and the meaning is similar' :O

I remember that me and my friends pronounced Kyogre as Ky-OUL-Grey. I say it good now.

I've heard some small mispronoucations, but no real big ones yet. The 'biggest' I've ever heard was the Rayquaza dub pronoucation, which kinda suprised me.

And of course, we pronounce things sometimes the 'Dutch way'(Without the English R and other stuff which are pronounced different here).

Don't forget, this is from the same people that pronounce Ponyta as 'Paw-NEE-tah'.

Really, I don't pay much attention to whether I pronounce things right or wrong... as a matter of fact, I adamantly pronounce my username 'G-rah-tii-nah', instead of 'Gii-rah-tii-nah'. (So instead of sounding more like that Asian food I forget the spelling of, it is literally "G-ra-tina".) That's not even the worst of it.
