    Fun Challenge!
    For hunting I used 3 Pokemon, Scyther Lvl 39 with False Swipe, Jumpluff Lvl 39 with Quick Claw and Sleep Powder (his speed is actually enough for Raikou) and a Pokemon with flying.
    I kept flying to Cherrygrove City to find Entei and Raikou.
    If either of them was on Route 29 or Route 31, I went to Route 30. If one of them was on Route 30 or Route 46, I went to Route 29.
    If one of them was there, I saved the game and then used Repel. When Entei or Raikou escaped, I soft reset the game and flew back to Cherrygrove City and repeated the process.
    I used 4 repels and about 12 pokeballs. Ultraball and Fastball have a 1% better chance, so in my opinion it's not worth wasting money on.

    So for those who are skeptical, the link above is an excellent resource to use to find all 3, Entei, Raikou, and Suicune (for those in Silver and Gold). It details a well thought out plan on how to find these mons once as well as how to encounter them again. If I did not encounter them, I would Fly to Violet City, enter and exit the Pokecentre, and check again until they were.

    Personally, my methods were just Flying to Violet City, entering and exiting the Poke Centre and seeing where the dogs are. If they are on routes close to 31, 36, or 32 then I would head to one of those routes and check. The link above has more details on this, most of which I ignored and only really focused on using the Violet City method. I tried alternating between Violet City and Mahagony Town like the link suggests, however that did not work well for me and I found my own method preferable for me.

    As for the battle itself, I had Level 40 Jynx with Lovely Kiss and Mean Look. Catch one in Ice Path as that is the only way to get Lovely Kiss. 10% chance on BF3 with the Rock Smash Rock. Mean Look is obtained at level 35. I finished the game before attempting this so I had the Leftovers from Snorlax which came in handy since Entei has Fire Spin. Jynx was head of my party so I could use Max Repels to find Entei.

    In the back, I had a level 90 Parasect with Spore and a Level 89 Umbreon with Mean Look and Baton Pass. I went through about 40 Ultra Balls before I finally caught Entei so Jynx's Lovely Kiss PP gets low. I opted to switch right after putting Entei to sleep eventually to Umbreon. I used Mean Look and then Baton Passed into Parasect. Spore is 100% hit and Baton Pass passes Mean Look onto Parasect to keep Entei trapped. From there it was just tossing Ultra Balls and using Spore when Entei woke up.

    Hope this helps someone else who is struggling. I sure did and wished I did this a lot earlier then what it was I did instead which did not work and wasted a lot of house for me.

    I used a level 39 crobat and level 43 jynx.Use max repel with crobat and encounter raikou.Then use mean look and get its health down.After crobat dies you have a free turn to switch into jynx.Use an overleveled jynx with lovely kiss to put it to sleep then throw your balls at it.

    Was grinding for the Elite 4 and he randomly popped up. Said, out loud; "Oh, hey Entei." and threw a single Ultra Ball and snagged him. Two Shinies and now this. My luck with the Gen 2 achievements has been pretty wild.
