Just because it looks better doesn't mean it's the actual way.

More people will type Pokeball as one word, I always do. And in all the stories I've read here, I've seen "Poke Ball" used very rarely.

The right way is 'Poké ball'

If they use it that way in the games, then it's correct

But many many people prefer to name it 'Pokeball'...because people think it looks better...or people are just too lazy to put a space in between 'poke' and 'ball'

Hmmmm.. Pokeball is not included in any dictionary... how did you look up in Microsoft, and its pokeball not poke ball...... How??


ANSWER- Now listen, have you ever noticed that the "e" in the words "Pokemon", "Pokeball" and "Pokedex" has a distinct feature, it has a special symbol on the top of it its sort of like this (poke`ball, poke`mon and poke`dex) get it? This symbol is used when the "e" is pronounced as (-Aye).

Now for the Dispute:

1)If you write it as "Poke ball" then its pronounced (POK-BALL)

2)If its written as "(poke`ball) then its pronounced (POK-AYE-BALL)

NOTE: Furthermore, THE SPECIAL "e" is used as a charecter in a single word, i can't connect two words, hence , we CANNOT write "poke`ball" as "poke` ball"

And thats how it is, problem solved, have a nice day.

Actually, Dialga...

Poke ball is spelt with an accent over the E so it sounds like Poke ball.

It's not a special symbol...it's an accent mark.

Poké Ball

See?

One word.

To reiterate myself and comply with the four word rule, it's one word.
