So according to my brother it's pē-dove, but I think it's pih dove. Is either the proper pronunciation?

Like most Pokemon, there's no official pronunciation. There is justification for both pronunciations:

  1. This clip of the anime pronounces it as "pee-DUV", with a long e.
  2. Pidove's name is derived from "pigeon", which is pronounced with a short vowel instead.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter and is up to personal preference.
