I pronounce it with a soft C, so "Ar-see-us."

My reasoning is that if it was really meant to be pronounced with a hard C instead, that would have been reflected in the Japanese name, where things like this are much less ambiguous. That, and I generally like to pronounce Pokemon names based on the words from which they are derived -- though I do make some rare exceptions. The "official" pronunciations just sound odd to me sometimes.

It seems only natural that the "eus" in "Arceus" would be pronounced the same way as the "eus" in "Zeus". For quite a while, it did not even occur to me that people might pronounce it differently.

Huh, I go with "R-C-oos"; using the Zeus pronunciation, too.

It's pretty obvious that it was intended to be pronounced like Zeus, being the God of all Pokemon.

THEN AGAIN, this is the same Generation that gave us Buizel, Palkia and Skorupi, so clearly the translators weren't thinking logically when localizing the names.
