              Ferrous + hawthorn

    I think the Hoenn Pokérap calls this one Poochy-ay-nah, so that's what I call it. Pooch-eye-ee-na would make more sense but doesn't sound as good to me.

      Yeah

      Pooch as in dog, Hyena as in Hyena

      Pooch-eye-eena
      May be spoken quickly as
      "Poochy-ena"

      Everytime I enter one of these threads I'm so glad I'm not one of them. Imagine seeing a word and having no idea how it's supposed to be pronounced, it's bizarre

      Regi-ice. Honestly doesn't matter what comes after regi-.

      Logically it would be regi-ice because all 3 are regi + their type, but for ehatever reason it's spelled reg-ice and would be pronounced that way.

        Fuck whoever wrote that name like this. It even says regiice in the anime.
