Does anyone know a website with Pokemon pronunciations. I mean a website with name pronunciations like Sceptile and Pidgeot or Chimeco or whatever. Also if you know any pronunciations please post them here.

All of the pronunciations are really straightforward because Japanese is a phonetical language...for example ピジョット will always sound the same way because the sounds of each character of the Japanese alphabet never change. (Pi-Jo-Tto).

If you don't read Japanese have someone turn the names into English letters for you.

I'm not sure about pronunciation of the english names which are different from the japanese names becuas I don't know many english ones... <:|

I've heard Pi-jot but I've also heard Pi-jee-ot (maybe Pi-jot was just said real fast?). Chimecho is the combo of the words chime and echo. Sceptile is Sep-tile (or maybe Sept-ile)

According to the Japanese characters it's pronounced Ar-see-us.

And Resultz, I've always pronounced Zapdos as Zap-dose.

How does everyone pronounce Blaziken? I always pronounced it blaze-ee-ken, but then somewhere (the anime?) I heard it pronounced blah-zee-ken. I've been confused ever since.

The English version of Pokémon Battle Revolution and the English version of "Arceus and the Jewel of Life" pronounce "Arceus" differently. For now, I'm writing "Arceus", but I'm pronouncing it "four ninety-three".

Hao, seriously? Not even the official designers can stay consistent? I guess there's no hope for us lowly fans, then.

i agree for pidgeot. however, it's not skep-tile, it's sep-tile. chimeco is pronounced chime-echo. blaziken is pronounced blaze-i-kin. suicune is pronounced soo-i-kune.

Swee-cune, but I agree I used to think it was Soo-Wee-Soo-Nay or Soo-Wi-Sine

Here's one for y'all

Its prounounced

Fan-Fee, if you replace the F's with the correct Ph's it would spell PhanPHy, yet it is spelled PhanPy (its fan-fee, not fan pee, wth nintendo)

Thanks for reviving a 6 and a half year old thread... but we don't really need that do we?
