I pronounce it MIGH-tigh-EE-nuh. When it comes to word fusion names (in this case, I assume it's "mighty" and "hyena"), I always pronounce the intersecting letters (the "y" here) as belonging to the second word (pronounced "igh" like in hyena). What about you?

Well the name comes from the words might and hyena, but to pronounce it like Might-eye-ee-nuh is extremely awkward sounding. Much easier to say Mighty-en-uh. Pretty sure that's the correct English pronunciation.

There are other Pokemon names like this, such as Blastoise. Its name comes from blast and tortoise but we don't pronounce it like Blast-us... we pronounce it like Blast-toys.
There's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I don't care about the anime or the Pokedex 3D Pro's pronunciation; I cannot for the life of me bring myself to use a short "E" in "Mightyena" (or Poochyena). Whether I pronounce the "Y" as "eye" or another long "E" is dependent on my mood, but I actually usually do the latter (so "might-ee-yee-nuh" usually, "might-eye-yee-nuh" occasionally).

Don't even get me started on the official pronunciation of Arceus...
