Pokémon Pronunciation

How do you pronounce the word Pokémon? I always find this interesting to know for some reason. I hear most people call it poh-kee-mon, and I used to say that too. I say poh-kay-mon now, because it's the correct pronunciation. I've heard that poh-kuh-mon is also generally accepted. So, how do you pronounce it and do you care?

Also what are some Pokémon names that you or your friends would always get wrong, (I thought Geer-uh-teen-uh was Grrr-i-teen-uh. I kept calling it that for a while because it sounds awesome,) and how do you say the name of a Pokémon in plural form? I dunno what's proper. You could either follow the rules of grammar for each name individually or do what I do and use the singular version of the names for plural.

Also do you care? I'm not actually bothered when people don't say things correctly but I put the effort into doing it myself.

Also adults need to stop calling it poh-kee-mans that actually does annoy me greatly. :/

Poh-Kay-Mon

You know, the way it's meant to be pronounced. Otherwise the accent on the e would be completely useless. Just like Resumé is pronounced Reh-Sue-May, and not Ree-Soom.

I speak rather quickly so it comes out as "POKUHMHN".
