Complete List of Pronunciations for the New Pokémon in Black and White

A new list of names has been circulating around the internet... and it contains some names already leaked by Nintendo, so many are clamoring that it's real. Below are the spites as well as the names of the pokémon associated with them and what words were combined to make thier names.

Update, 9:30pm: I have added a proprosed pronunciation guide for each name as I read them. These are subject to change as Nintendo offically announces names. Names in blue are confirmed.

Update, Feb. 14, 2011: Many sites like Serebii and Pokebeach have accepted this list a true.. so we can pretty much assume these are ALL confirmed.
