The Kyogre/Groudon theme is hella boring

Also, idk if people still care, but I pronounce it Po-keh-mon. That is, after all, the closest you can get to "pocket" without sounding kinda retarded.

Man, so much to look at

But before I do, I pronounce it like a german word and I was really confused when I first heard someone say Pokemon with the ee sound (which sounds like the german "i" and I was wondering why they'd say Pokimon)

This is arguably more boring than the original and with worse instruments, but if you insist.

I don't think the German I is any different from the regular I. Razz
But yeah I don't really get it. Maybe if it was Pokeemon, or Pokeymon...

The English "I" is pronounced like the German "Ei"

The German "I" is pronounced like the English "Ee" (Like in deed)

Well, only sometimes.
Usually its quite similar to "ee" except not as stressed. Did, picnic, sit, dick, fickle... I can think of more that are pronounce than the other way.
I'm pretty sure this is identical to the german way eg ich

That is true, if you pronounce it with a short sound, it sounds the same as the german version. However, if you pronounce it with a long sound, it sounds like the German "Ei"

For example in "die" "site" or, obviously, in "I"

P.S.: "Like" is another good example

EDIT:

In case it wasn't perfectly clear:

The short "I" is pronounced the same in both English and German

The long "I" is pronounced differently in the way I described it

I think the point to take away from all of this is that English is more complicated than it needs to be.

So, Eight badge get. Wulfric wasn't joking. Most of my team were physical attackers.

Anyway, I think the hairdresser girl might be colorblind. It thinks that honey is slightly dark blonde and orange is light brown???!

Also, thanks to Druplesnubb, I now cannot unsee the relation between this and Pokemon.

That orange is an appropriate red hair colour though. It's like the Miis, there's no red hair selection but the off blonde does the job really nicely. Orange hair (though there's really no such thing, the term is red) is not actually orange. Nor is it red. 

It's cultural conditioning anyway, you see the colour you expect to see.
Unless you're someone like this.

But most people who'd identify as redheads would not have such strong colouring. Even then it's not the carroty colour people imagine.
