Well I know that a lot of my friends pronounce the word Tamagotchi differently, and Im wondering if you do to? lol I know this is stupid, but Im just curious. I've had friends call it stuff such as:
Tamagoochi
Tamatchi
Tamamama
Tamatchigotch
Tama-GO-tchi
and even
Gotchitchi

So do you pronounce it different? Comment and let us fill our brains with useless information! xDDD

I pronounce it like 'Tama-Gaw-Chi' (Isnt this how you pronounce it? xD)

The correct Japanese pronunciation is:

Tah-mah-goht-(slight pause)-chi

I say it "Tam-er-got-chee". The way most people say it.

I think that's just a strong American accent. In some parts of America, people say "o" as more like "a".

Yeah this is the way I say it :D
I honestly get confused on how to pronounce it, the English or Japanese way? xD I usually pronounce it the 'English' way xD

I pronounce it the japanese way because most polish vowels sound just like in japanese.
"Tamagoci/tamagoczi" is the way to write "tamagotchi" phonetically in my language.

I pronounce it as "Ta-mah-gaw-chee", which is mostly the proper way of saying it.

if Rayman were to say it in Rayman 2, he'd say it like this: "Tah-mah-goh-chee", since he speaks in gibberish, or whatever language he speaks.

Yeah, I pronounce it like you do, but it seems more people would pronounce it like Rayman would. :D

Yeah, but if Globox were to say it, he'd say: "Rayman, it's actually pronounced Ta-mah-gat-chee." Rayman would have this confused look on his face, however. He'd reply: "No! It's Ta-ma-goh-chee! Say it right!"

But, I wouldn't even pronounce it like of how Globox would even say it. It depends where they came from, and what they speak in. I pronounce it properly, but Rayman and Globox would say it differently if "Tamagotchi" was actually mentioned in Rayman 2/Rayman 3D.
