Go to burned tower in ecruteak city. Pulverize your rival, then smash the breakable rock. Beat trainer, then fall down hole. you will see 3 statues(or something like that). Approach them and Raikou, Entei & Suicune will wake up and run off. Then try and find them in the wild.

Well.... do you know a great way to copy Pokemon and items in Gold/Silver? I've used this cheat to copy Masterballs and catch the elusive Pokemon in one easy toss....

Attach the items you want to clone to the pokemon you want to clone. Stand in front of a computer and save. Then, deposit those pokemon you want to clone in the computer and change boxes.

"Data will be saved?" yes "Already a file?" yes. Then when it says "Saving, don't turn off the power," turn off the power.

Be a rebel! When you turn it back on, you'll have the pokemon you wanted to clone both in your lineup and in your PC (holding the items you wanted to clone).

Strip them of their items and, if you don't want lots of pokemon clogging your PC, release the clones.

Note: Any pokemon withdrawn during this cheat will be erased. However, if you withdrew them before you saved, they should be fine.

Now to capture the Dogs! I'm sure you know that to track them with your Pokedex, you must find them first.

Remember not to Fly to the location, as that will reset the current Dog's position. Run around until you get into a fight with him, then THROW A MASTERBALL!

(Which I, I presume, you copied.... never throw your last one!) Bingo! You may feel a little dirty, but you've now got the dog!

Or you can be all moral, teach a pokemon a sleep-inducing move, then use Ampharos to instill paralysis.

Use type-management to get their HP down (if one of your pokemon has False Swipe, switch to them) and make sure they're asleep, then lob Ultra Balls like your life depended on it.

I'm not sure if this is valid, but I seem to have great success in catching pokemon, if I use a Great Ball then press A and B simultaneously right when the Pokemon disappears.

Can anyone verify this?

The legendary dogs are the most difficult pokemon to catch in the whole game, because every time you go in and out of a house, they move. The thing about them is that when you take some of they're HP it doesn't come go back again, so when you find one of them, do as much damage as possible, and after a while they will be weak enough to catch.
