  1. People fight over like a solid quarter of pokemon’s names and how to say them

  2. Adaman and Irida give massive bickering like an old married couple vibe

    Arceus Clan

  4. My friend started calling it Ar-koos out of spite and it evolved into us calling it Caboose.

  5. The Japanese name is アルセウス (a-ru-se-u-su), shorten the Us off the R and S to make it sound more English and you get something more like Ar-SAY-us. They might have changed the pronunciation for the English language media because in English that sounds a bit like a slightly rude word and people would whinge if they thought kids were learning rude words from Pokémon.

  6. me, incoming with Archeeyus just to piss off those that make a fuss about it. my favorite type of people to piss off.

  7. Where’s arkoos clan?

  8. Arse-E-us

  9. I used to pronounce it Ark-e-us as a kid
    Then a YouTube video told me I was wrong.
    So I started saying Ar-see-us
    And now I’m being told it’s wrong again, but I’ve already adapted and can’t stop.

  10. Ar-KAY-us?

  11. Ar-K-es I model my pronunciation after the ability name of Silvally’s ability. RKS system.

  12. Ar-see-us. Rolls off the tongue a lot smoother.

  13. It’s like Fallout: New Vegas and the way some NPC’s pronounce “Ceasar” all over again.

    When I first play platinum I thought it was arceus, now that I’m older I know it’s actually arceus.

  15. imagine watermarking a template meme lmfao

  16. r/MandJTV fans be like:

    **There is another.**

  17. The japanese (roughly) goes with ‘ar-see-us’, and that is how it would be pronounced using the usual rules of english.

    the hard K version is a retcon imposed on us by the british because of their word ‘arse’. Considering how the british are also the reason we lost the game corner, I do not acknowledge their propaganda and will continue to use the true name no matter how much tpci tries to prime people to use the K version.

    Ar-see-us

  19. HOO BOY, wait ’till this comment section hears about the name of Silvally’s ability!

  20. I roll the R since it’s spelled similar to my name.

  21. Ar-che-us

  22. The English reveal trailer pronounced it with the KEY, Japanese trailer said it with the SEE. To me both are valid as one is just a Japanese pronunciation.

  23. Nintendo needs to release an official Pokemon name pronunciation guide.

  24. Okay i’ve been calling it Ar-kay-us and my reasoning was that the lore is, it’s very old and the game is set a long time ago, so I was thinking it was pronounced that way because it was “archaic” hence Ar-kay-us

  25. RKS system and not RCS system, I really thought that would have cleared this up

  26. cynthia clan be like :Arkoos

  27. I like to pronounce Arceus’s name as Ar-key-us because it brings to mind the words arc, arch, etc., which relate to having a highest point – fitting for a god Pokemon. I also think it flows better.

    And there’s Silvally’s RKS System, which I think sounds cooler as RKS than it would RCS.

  28. Well it’s not called the fockin arse phone now is it??

    R-K-S

  30. I go by how they pronounce it in the anime cause that’s like the only time in the series that Pokémon names are actually spoken. Therefore, it’s ar-key-us for me.

  31. Literally the only reason it’s not Ar-see-us is because they’re cowards didn’t want kids saying something with “arse”. I will always say it that way.

  32. I personally prefer Arse-eus, but I can see people saying Ark-aeus, and don’t hold it over them.

  33. Ar-Kay-Us

  34. Ar-key-us 🙂

  35. ARK eee us. It has literally been pronounced this way in all of the Pokémon directs.

    It’s Ar-kay-us. The portmanteau is archaic + deus

  37. who pronounces it ar-key-us??

  38. There’s a third, I heard someone say Ar-Say-Us

  39. I flip flop to whatever I feel like saying

  40. I originally was pronouncing it Ar-key-us because that’s how my text to speech software said it, but husband says it Ar-see-us, given that he can pick up language extremely quickly, he’s probably right…

    So now I use Ar-key-us just to annoy him.

  41. AND WHERE IS THE ARKOOS CLAN???

    you forgot the ar-koos clan

  43. If you’re able to read アルセウス then you will never say “Ar-Key-us”.

  44. Honestly I pronounce it Ar-see-us, but maybe it should be ar-key-us because of the Arc phone. Otherwise it would be the Arse-phone
