Default "Ugh, that's not how it's pronounced!"

Do you ever get irritated by people mispronouncing words in Pokemon?

More specifically, which mispronunciations irritate you the most?

So if you still pronounced it today, you'd be calling GS 'Graceful Shoeshine'? xD

Well, in all honesty, I pronounced Squirtle, 'Sqwerlt' when I was 5 xD

I think the Rayquaza mispronunciation is irritating and ignorant. It's Ray-KWA-za, not Ray-KWAY-za. Grrrr.

They have said it Ray-KWAY-za in the anime...

I could never figure out how to say Arceus' name until the movie came out. I still don't know how to pronounce Kyogre.

At first I misread Seismitoad as Sesimitoad...yeah...and I kept saying Swaldoon instead of Swadloon.

Also...Golurk...
Go-lurk or Gol-lurk?
