Rat-uh-tah

(Sounds like rat attack without the ending k sound, which is what I'm pretty sure the name comes from)

That's how I pronounce it.

Ratatta's official pronunciation is exactly what I always use. There are pronunciations I protest (Poochyena and Arceus, most notably), but not Ratatta.


What's wrong with Poochyena and Arceus? How are they "meant" to be pronounced? (For the record, I pronounce them poo-chee-ee-nah and arr-see-us, respectively).


Both of which are perfectly acceptable pronunciations IMHO, and neither of which is used by the Pokedex 3D Pro, which calls them "Poo-chee-enn-uh" (as in, the "E" is short, nothing like the word "hyena") and "ar-kee-uss" (C-E is almost never pronounced as a K in English and that doesn't match the Japanese pronunciation, so I have no idea what they were thinking. Maybe trying to avoid the pronunciation of "arse"?)

Admittedly, the Pokedex 3D Pro doesn't do that one. But I'm aware that early fourth-gen anime episodes did.

The pronunciation in the title is the correct one (according the Pokedex 3D anyway) but I always said Rat-a-tah because the name is a mix between rat and attack.

Battle Frontier!Brock did. Interestingly, Destiny Deoxys!Brock said Bon-sly.

I say Rat Atta even though I know it's wrong. I don't put enough emphasis on the first T, but otherwise I'm correct.
