Actually, it's neither of your poll answers. You pronounce it Ta-ma-got-chi. Like Got Milk, only it's Got Chi. But you slur it together so it's just one word, which is obvious.

Gosh it's hard to write pronunciations with regular characters...
I think the best way to represent how i say it: tah-mah-go-chi. Not like you yanks say 'ah' though. like taa-maa. short 'ah' sounds.

Some of my friends used to pronounce it Tamagaytchis, but that's because they didn't like them =P But ever since I started to let them play with them, they love 'em :P (they are boys)
