How do you pronounce Unova? {you-noo-vah} or {you-nuh-vah}?

I hear Poketubers (Pokemon youtubers) saying the first one but in the anime I hear the second one.

I always thought it was "you-no-vah" :P

Tbh I think it's just a matter of preference. For example, one of the commentators on the VGC World Championships pronounced Ferrothorn "fer-AH-thorn", but the general consensus is that it's pronounced "fer-OH-thorn". Or how, unlike most people, I say "JEN-jar" instead of "GEN-gar", and still others say "GEN-gr". It's up to the individual.
lol, I used to pronounce gengar ginger XD
when I first saw ratata I was confused by the number of "at"s and so I ended up calling it "ratatata" for like a year before I finally realized that it's "ratata".  After that, it took another year to break the habit... would have gone a lot faster if anyone actually had a reason to say ratata

But how come the people in the anime say it the other way
The anime has many mistakes, like when the official handbook (or something) said arceus was ar-key-us but the anime pronounced it ar-see-us
