    1. With the "kal" pronounced like "CAL-ifornia"?

    2. Perhaps like "Sailor" just with a 'k' thrown in there?

    3. Maybe like the musical genre "Ska" and a "lore" afterwards? (Similar to number 1)

    4. Other?

    I've been pronouncing it as 1 for the longest time, then I heard Peaugh say it like 2 in his BBTS Seacons video, that's what made me think of this idea.

    How aboot you?

    Yeah, it's "Scale-or", like fish scales. In addition, his gun shoots scales that adhere to his opponents and immobilize them.

    This. I believe the Seacons were used in one of the old tell-a-tape Ladybird books? I think the cassette may have used this pronounciation if he was in.

    Then again, Chris' version is effectively the same, so it could have been that.

    Assuming he was even in a Ladybird book. Pretty sure at least Tentakil showed.

    "Scholar." I know it's wrong but that's how I say it without thinking about it.

    I'm trying to think of a way to pronounce it other than Scale-or...

    I guess someone could say "SKAH-lor" but I can't fathom why...

    Heck, I remember when they first came out, people were calling them SEE-uh-cons. Can't remember where I heard it said that way... Was it the commercial?

    There's no other way to say it. It's wrong, otherwise.
