I thought for a long time that Victreebel was VICK trih BEEL.
On a different note, I thought that emblem was pronounced ELL bum.

Also, I pronounce Pachirisu PA chi rees, with a soft "r", since I took a Japanese course in high school. I kinda slacked off and didn't learn a whole lot, but one of the first things I did learn was that most words that end in "su" don't usually have the "u" pronounced too often, or it's just sometimes hard to hear. At least pertaining to what I learned.

Apparently Rayquaza is pronounced "Ray quay zah" instead of "Ray quah zuh" like I thought for years.

I refuse to pronounce Reuniclus as anything but "ROY-ni-clus"

Due to taking German at the time of BW's release.

Plus it sounds better.

I always prounounced it Re-Unk-u-lus. (Basing it off Homunculus's pronunciation). I guess the real way is "re - YOO - ni - clus"

I will probably stick with my version

The only one I mispronounce is Missingno as Miss een Go.

I don't pay attention to the anime or games for pronunciations, no matter how official they may be.

So, in that regard, I probably pronounce a lot of them incorrectly, but I'd rather they sound logical to me than follow some of the ridiculous ones that are supposed to be official.
