After you've been to the Burned Tower in Ecruteak City, the Map on your Pokegear will have two new icons somewhere in Johto. These icons represent Raikou and Entei. You can tell which one's which since they look like the Pokemon they represent. If you are in the same Route as one of the icons, you could potentially run into the Pokemon it represents. Since one of them is Raikou, this is how you catch it. It will flee on the first turn, so you may want a fast Pokemon with Mean Look.

Raikou is a roaming Pokemon and you will randomly encounter it while travelling in tall grass or in the water. The only way to determine where it is is through the Pokegear map. If you do encounter it, it will try to flee so maybe use some Quick or Fast balls just in case. Use some status effects on it too. Even if it flees from the battle, the status effects and all the damages you've done too it will still stay.
