After beating the Elite Four and registering at least 60 Pokemon in your Pokedex to obtain the national upgrade in FR/LG you'll have the chance to run into either Raikou, Entei or Suicune roaming around Kanto depending on the starter you chose.
If you obtained Bulbasaur you'd encounter Entei. If Charmander then you'll see Suicune and if Squirtle, Raikou.
I actually thought it was going to be a real pain to track them down (not to mention catch with no master ball), but it was really easy.

~ If you'd like to read over the strategy I used ~

Spoiler:


What you need:

- Ultra Balls (or Master ball if you have one)
- Max Repels
- A Pokemon at level 50 or < with a high speed stat (This is the Pokemon you are using to weaken your target)
- A Pokemon with a trapping ability or move (Wobbuffet is recommended)
- Patience!

Method:

1. Make your way to Route 6 and make sure you have the Pokemon at level 50 or < you plan to use to weaken your target first in your party.

2. Use a Max Repel and run around in the grass for a little while. If no encounter, enter the building (underground passage) and exit it. (This will reset the location of your legendary).

3. Repeat this process until you encounter it, which usually takes 5 - 10 minutes each encounter). Once you do use your Pokemon to land a hit the legendary will escape. Status moves are recommended. If you have a master ball here, just toss that.

4. Continue to repeat the encounters until you get it's health in the red zone preferably with a status condition.

5. Now switch your lead Pokemon with Wobbuffet or another trapping Pokemon. (It needs to be able to take hits)

6. Encounter it just one more time and start lobbing your Pokeballs at it. You'll catch it eventually.



Did you bother catching your legendary beast? and if so, was your method different from mine?

I have played FR/LG so many times so I am sure at one point that I did encounter one, but I am positive that I never caught them. I would have if I had saved my Master Ball, but I was just too lazy to catch them otherwise.

It's not just defeating the league, you need to catch 60 Pokémon and recieve the national dex, obviously.

I've gone through FR 3 times, each time picking each starter, only ever coming across entei, I forget which one I picked to start with for him.

My strategy was Route 11, encounter it, attack it, switch to Vermillion city, and back, and repeat till it appears, rinse and repeat untill his/her/it's HP is red, False Swipe, then catch in the next battle.

Time consuming, but worth it.

I have played pokemon FR/LF too many times and Its does need to complete Pokedex to 60 by catching 60 Kanto Pokemons. After that i was thinking how to encounter A raikou or entai, I am not so interested in Suicane And i used a Ultra ball to catch a Raikou. i forgot which starter.

And my strategy was - don't even know that will i can encounter it cause its too hard to encounter i though no i can't catch him cause I can't even find him ! But suddenly when walking on route 11 in my first Encounter it was Raikou i shocked then i catch it (by wasting 29 OR 28 balls) It was too hard for me to catch then i train it and teach the Raikou very good movesets and i didn't wast the Master ball on just a 50 lvl Legendary i Prefer to use it To catch Mewtwo.

I always capture the legendaries on every playthrough. I can't remember which appeared for squirtle, I think it was Entei(?). Anyway, I never use any other kind of pokeball beside the original. Sure it may be harder to catch it, but it felt more challenging and made me feel like a true master doing it this way. To add, I "sometimes" don't even bother to lower his hp to catch it; mostly cause I want to see how long, and how many pokeballs it will take me to catch him. I prefer it this way, because why would I use a masterball and get it over with? It adds no challenge, and it most likely will just be sent to the pc, and I wouldn't even bother to use it. Since I feel like I earned worked for the legendary, I train them to lvl 100 because its fun.

I've added more relevant info in the original post. You must have chose Bulbasaur to come across Entei. The legendary should have an advantage against your starter.
Choosing Bulbasaur you'd encounter Entei, Charmander for Suicune and Squirtle for Raikou.

I did the exact same thing, the Master Ball just suits Mewtwo so much in my view.

You're very patient if you choose not to weaken it haha!

I didn't know this :O

I haven't ever encountered one of them... and I've played the games a lot!

Next time I pick up my Leaf Green I'll have to catch mine.

They were difficult to catch but sadly because I know about the roaming IV glitch I won't really be using them much.

I did catch my Raikou pretty quickly after unlocking it. It appear in Route 2 after I battled an Pidgey. I caught it in an Masterball as I do with all roamer pokemon.

The roaming 'Individual Values' glitch sets roaming Pokemon's IVs really low.
There is also another glitch. If Raikou or Entei uses 'Roar' in the wild battle. You'll never find it again!

I was unaware of this until I saw Entei just randomly pop up while I was walking in the grass. Luckily I had my Masterball ready, and now Entei is sitting comfortably in a box in Pearl haha.

Didn't really bother catching them because of how hard it was to find them.

I caught them to complete the Pokedex. I got Suicune on LeafGreen and Raikou on FireGreen. There was already an Entei on another LeafGreen (which I purchased so I could get Bulbasaur) along with a bunch of other Pokemon that I traded over to my other games.

Played played FireRed for approximately four times, and out of all the playthroughs, I've been able to encounter the legendary beasts only twice. First, it was Suicune (which I've encountered in my second run), and then it was Raikou (managed to run into it in my third playthrough). I haven't been able to capture any of them successfully, but I believe Suicune was the closest. As soon as I stumbled into it, I threw an Ultra Ball the Pokémon. The ball rolled for about two to three times. After that, Suicune broke free. If I was able to capture it though, then I would've trained it up to level one-hundred and kept it with me at all times. Suicune is my most favorite legendary Pokémon, and have been in love with it ever since Gold and Silver. Plus, since this Pokémon is one of the fewest legendaries that isn't banned, I could have transferred it to my fourth-generation games quite easily and used it in online play. Suicune is powerful, but it certainly isn't overpowered. Its defensive stats are very high, which make it a great staller. It could even go head-to-head with Pokémon like Heatran, Skarmory, Hippowdon, and Blissey, some of the most amazing stallers in the competitive battling scene. d:

I remember searching for the roaming Entei back in FireRed, and I was lucky I had heard about the Roar glitch before, so I had a Pokemon with Hypnosis ready just in case. I'm pretty sure I ended up finding it on Route 1 right before I caught it, and then I proceeded to put it in my PC, never to be used again (the next game I played was HeartGold, so I didn't even bother transferring it over).
