    Similar, but I'm more of an Ar-See-Us kind of guy.

    This is how I pronounce it. And it was apparently the official pronunciation until the "arse" sound was noted and deemed unsuitable.

    Now the official pronunciation is "Ark-Ee-Us". Which doesn't sound as good, so I stick with Ar-See-Us.

    It makes a "ts" sound in my language. Which is different than the ts in "cats" for example, because it's kind of a singular sound instead of two different sounds one after another... So, uh, yeah. We need the "c".

    You're saying that as if your language doesn't have weird versions of otherwise international ways. I mean, for crying out loud, the Spanish diminutive for Jose (Joseph) is Pepe.

    International variations aside, I used to call it Ar-see-us. Now I just stick to the official pronunciation. Not that I'm ever going to need to say it, given how impossible it is to obtain the pokemon.

    If by "impossible" you mean "you just have to stop by your local GameStop before the 24th of this month", then you're right.
