The Legendary beasts are a group of three Legendary Pokémon consisting of Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. 150 years prior to the events of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, they were three unnamed Pokémon that perished when the Brass Tower burned down. They were revived by Ho-Oh, who used its powers to bring them back to life, causing the three to turn into their current forms.

History

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

As a wild Pokémon
Suicune with Crystal

Suicune first appeared alongside Entei and Raikou in Slugging It Out With Slugma, where they were seen exiting the Burned Tower as beams of light. Suicune officially debuted in Querulous Qwilfish, where it appeared in Olivine City after a construction team's septic tank burst, causing waste to spill into the sea and injure the Pokémon that lived there. When Crystal attempted to help a Qwilfish that was made sick by the waste, Suicune appeared and used its powers to clean the sea and heal the Qwilfish before leaving. Enamored by Suicune and its power, Crystal set out to try and capture it in her quest to complete the Pokédex.

In Debonaire Dragonair, Suicune began its quest to find an appropriate person worthy enough to be its Trainer in order to combat against the Masked Man. In its search, Suicune battled Clair, Chuck, and Morty, three of the Johto region's Gym Leaders.

In Suddenly Suicune I, after much searching, Crystal managed to track Suicune to the Tin Tower. In order to capture it, Crystal sends out her entire team to battle against Suicune. Despite her best efforts, Suicune's strength and its ability to create a powerful barrier leads to Crystal's defeat. Crystal later realized that Suicune went to the Tin Tower in order to meet with Ho-Oh, but their battle prevented that meeting from occurring. Disappointed in herself for failing to understand Suicune's motives, Crystal is reduced to tears and asks Suicune to forgive her. Unbeknownst to Crystal, Suicune finds one of the earrings that Crystal lost during their battle and picks it up before leaving.

Suicune then continues its search for a Trainer, which leads it to Bugsy and Janine, who each face Suicune in battle but are ultimately defeated. In Really Raikou & Entirely Entei II, Suicune assists Raikou and Entei in their battle against Falkner. Despite the battle being three-on-one, Falkner proves to be a powerful opponent. By using special boomerang Poké Balls created from the clear shed feathers of his Skarmory, Falkner surrounds Suicune with Poké Balls, preventing it from escaping capture. Suicune is saved at the last second by Raikou and Entei, who use their attacks to destroy all the Poké Balls at once. Due to having one of its wings broken during the battle, Falkner's Skarmory is left unable to fly and begins plummeting to the ground with its Trainer before being saved by one of Suicune's bubbles. Afterward, Suicune communicates to Raikou and Entei that it was unable to meet with Ho-Oh before the three go their separate ways.

It was later revealed that Suicune, Raikou, and Entei were found at the Burned Tower by Yellow, who inadvertently freed from the prison that the Masked Man had trapped them inside.

With Misty

In Lovely Lanturn, Suicune's search for a Trainer takes to Tohjo Falls, where it encounters Misty. After battling against her, Suicune deems Misty worthy enough to be its Trainer and has her Starmie convey its thoughts to her. After learning of Suicune's war against the Masked Man, Misty agreed to team up with Suicune and captured it.

In The Last Battle IV, Suicune and Misty team up with Raikou and Entei, who teamed up with Lt. Surge and Blaine, respectively, to fight against the Masked Man. The combined efforts of the Gym Leaders and their Pokémon allows them to defeat the Masked Man by trapping him inside of Suicune's Crystal Wall. Confident in their victory, Lt. Surge decides to uncover the Masked Man's true identity by removing his mask. The Masked Man manages to break out of the Crystal Wall and has his Gastly use Curse on Suicune, leaving it too weak to fight. The Masked Man then defeats the others and escapes and leaves Misty trapped inside the Crystal Wall to suffocate due to Suicune being to weak to turn it off.

The group is saved by Eusine, who uses the Clear Bell to enter the Crystal Wall and free Suicune and Misty. Suicune, despite the effects of Gastly's Curse, still chooses to chase after the Masked Man. Due to the Gym Leaders being injured from the battle, Crystal decides to partner with Crystal instead. In The Last Battle XII, Crystal, Suicune, Entei, and Raikou travel to the Ilex Forest, where they are joined by the other Pokédex holders to fight the final battle against the Masked Man. After the Masked Man is defeated, Suicune, Raikou, and Entei return to the wild.

HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter

At the end of the ninth chapter, Eusine is seen chasing after Suicune, much to its annoyance.

Personality and characteristics

Like its fellow beasts, Suicune is loyal to Ho-Oh, who revived them after their death at the Burned Tower. Together, the three work together to free it from the control of the Masked Man, who managed to capture it. It is shown to be very intelligent, using a variety of strategies in its battles against the Johto and Kanto Gym Leaders. It is also shown to be compassionate, even towards its opponents, as shown when it saved Falkner from falling to his death after their battle had ended.

Suicune is able to purify water by releasing a bright light from its body. Suicune can also make an impenetrable barrier known as the Crystal Wall (Japanese: 水晶壁 Crystal Wall), which resembles the crest on its head. In addition to blocking an opponent's attacks, it can also be used to trap an opponent by closing in on them. Only Suicune can make the barrier disappear, either manually or due to being too far away from the Crystal Wall. As the Crystal Wall is completely airtight, if Suicune is rendered unconscious, anyone trapped inside will suffocate.

History

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

As a wild Pokémon

Raikou first appeared alongside Entei and Suicune in Slugging It Out With Slugma, where they were seen exiting the Burned Tower as beams of light.

Raikou officially debuted in Really Raikou & Entirely Entei I, where it and Entei challenged Falkner to a battle in order to test his worth as a Trainer. Falkner attempted to fight the two in the skies while riding on his Skarmory, but their speed and power preventing any of Skarmory's attacks from hitting. By using Agility to dodge their attacks at the last second, Falkner tricked Raikou and Entei into hitting each other, leaving them distracted long enough to attempt a capture.

Raikou and Entei are saved at the last second by Suicune, who traps Falkner's Great Balls in bubbles. Despite facing three Legendary Pokémon at once, Falkner refuses to give up and begins throwing multiple Great Balls into the air. Falkner reveals that the Great Balls are equipped with the shed feathers of his Skarmory, making them act as boomerangs. The Great Balls begin heading down towards Suicune, surrounding it and preventing escape. Suicune is saved at the last second by Raikou and Entei, who use their attacks to destroy all the Poké Balls at once. Due to having one of its wings broken during the battle, Falkner's Skarmory is left unable to fly and begins plummeting to the ground with its Trainer before being saved by one of Suicune's bubbles. Afterward, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune communicate to each other about Suicune's failed attempt to meet with Ho-Oh at the Tin Tower before the three go their separate ways.

It was later revealed that Raikou, Suicune, and Entei were found at the Burned Tower by Yellow, who inadvertently freed from the prison that the Masked Man had trapped them inside.

With Lt. Surge

In The Last Battle III, Raikou is revealed to have joined Lt. Surge. After the Magnet Train is sabotaged by Team Rocket, Surge uses Raikou's immense electrical power to prevent it from crashing and return to the Indigo Plateau.

With all three Legendary Pokémon now partnered with a Trainer, the three Gym Leaders each head off to battle against the Masked Man. The combined efforts of the Gym Leaders and their Pokémon allows them to defeat the Masked Man by trapping him inside of Suicune's Crystal Wall. Confident in their victory, Lt. Surge decides to uncover the Masked Man's true identity by removing his mask. The Masked Man manages to break out of the Crystal Wall and has his Gastly use Curse on Suicune, leaving it too weak to fight. The Masked Man then defeats the others and escapes and leaves Misty trapped inside the Crystal Wall to suffocate due to Suicune being to weak to turn it off.

The group is saved by Eusine, who uses the Clear Bell to enter the Crystal Wall and free Suicune and Misty. Suicune, despite the effects of Gastly's Curse, still chooses to chase after the Masked Man. Due to the Gym Leaders being injured from the battle, Crystal decides to partner with Crystal instead. In The Last Battle XII, Crystal, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune travel to the Ilex Forest, where they are joined by the other Pokédex holders to fight the final battle against the Masked Man.

During his battle against the Masked Man, Gold's Pibu uses electricity it absorbed from Raikou to use Super Rising Thunder. The attack destroys the GS Ball the Masked Man used to capture Celebi, freeing it from his control and defeating him once and for all. With the Masked Man defeated, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune return to the wild.

Emerald chapter

With Anabel
Anabel and Raikou

In Never Spritz a Knotty Sudowoodo, Scott reveals that Anabel traveled to Johto and managed to capture it for use in the Battle Tower.

In Skirting Around Surskit II, Raikou was used to fight against Guile Hideout at the Artisan Cave in order to prevent him from capturing Jirachi. With its control over electricity, Raikou traps Guile in an electrical jail cell, preventing him from escaping, allowing Emerald to capture Jirachi with no interruptions. Guile prevents Jirachi from being captured with his Surskit's Psybeam and uses his sword to break through the jail cell. Anabel attempts to stop Guile, only to realize the floor had become sticky from Surskit secretly releasing syrup onto the ground. Afterward, Jirachi escapes, forcing Guile to run away as well.

In Facing Gulpin Is Hard to Swallow, a mind-controlled Anabel used Raikou to battle against Emerald at the Battle Tower. Although Emerald is unable to defeat Raikou in battle, Anabel eventually passes out from the strain of the mind control.

In Epilogue, after the defeat of Guile Hideout, Raikou was seen reuniting with Gold and Pibu, who were also a part of the final battle against Guile.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

In PAORAS16, the Hoenn Frontier Brains teamed up to stop the admins of Neo Team Aqua and Neo Team Magma. Raikou was used to pin Shelly to the ground, preventing her from escaping.

Later it, Anabel, and the other Frontier Brains assist in stopping Grand Meteor Delta, a giant meteoroid threatening to destroy the planet. When the plan to attack Grand Meteor Delta starts, Anabel and the others have their Pokémon attack the meteoroid at the same time. This, combined with the might of Mega Rayquaza, successfully shatters Grand Meteor Delta into pieces.

Personality and characteristics

Like its fellow beasts, Raikou is loyal to Ho-Oh, who revived them after their death at the Burned Tower. Together, the three work together to free it from the control of the Masked Man, who managed to capture it.

Raikou possesses a powerful control over electricity, and the weaker an Electric-type move is, the easier it is for Raikou to manipulate. For example, with the move Thunder Shock, Raikou is able to surround the opponent in a "electrical jail" (Japanese: 電気の檻 electrical cage), preventing them from escaping. The clouds on Raikou's back can be turned into actual thunderclouds, allowing it shoot down lighting on to the opponent as well as hover through the air. Due to carrying thunderclouds on its back, Raikou is able to use the move Thunder wherever it wants, whereas other Pokémon are limited to using the move outdoors.

History

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

As a wild Pokémon

Entei appeared as a beam of light in Slugging It Out With Slugma. Its first real appearance was in Really Raikou & Entirely Entei I, where it along with Raikou tests Falkner. Falkner decides to use Swift with his Skarmory, but it is quickly evaded by the two Legendary Beasts. Raikou uses Spark and Entei uses Fire Blast, scoring a direct hit. Falkner quickly comes up with a cunning strategy of using Agility just as Entei and Raikou use an attack, which causes their attacks to hit each other as Falkner escapes. Suicune then shows up and joins the battle. Suicune appears behind Falkner, getting the attention of Raikou and Entei, while preparing for an attack. As Falkner throws the Poké Balls at Raikou and Entei, he senses Suicune who dashes in and uses Bubble Beam to catch the Poké Balls. Falkner then orders Skarmory to use Steel Wing on Suicune, which manages to hit it, but one of its feathers breaks in the process. Falkner then throws multiple Poké Balls, all missing. However, the balls are set up like boomerangs and come flying back. As Suicune watches as the Poké Balls fly around, it notices one coming towards it, however Raikou and Entei quickly destroy all the Poké Balls and joins Suicune on top of a rock. As Falkner watches this, Skarmory begins to fall as it lost its balance due to one of its feather having had taken damage from earlier. As they are falling, they become surrounded by a giant bubble, incapacitating him. Suicune, Raikou, and Entei leave and then have a discussion with Suicune telling them it did not find Ho-Oh at the Tin Tower. Afterwards, they leave in different directions.

Entei was later shown to have saved Silver and Gold's lives in Really Remoraid, after their defeat against the Masked Man in the Lake of Rage. It brought them to one of the Whirl Islands to heal them with its flames and later left prior to Silver awakening.

In Hello, Lickitung, it was revealed by Yellow that she was the one who freed Entei and its fellow beasts. In Buzz Off, Butterfree!, it reveals how they were stuck in the Burned Tower in Ecruteak City, where Yellow had been pulled into their trap and was able to free them. It is also revealed how the three came to be, where all three had perished in the fire 150 years prior, but were resurrected in the forms they are in now by Ho-Oh. Which is revealed that the three raced around Kanto and Johto looking for Trainers to help them defeat the Masked Man to free Ho-Oh.

With Blaine

In Entranced by Entei, Entei battles against Blue and Silver's two Gyarados. The two attack with powerful dragon attacks, but Entei shrugs it off and flees. It later finds Blaine, who offers a deal to Entei. If it can cure his illness he will take Entei with him into the upcoming fight. Entei agrees to this deal,joining him and healing his arm.

In The Last Battle IV, Entei joins Raikou and Suicune to fight the Masked Man and his Ho-Oh and Lugia. Despite putting up a good fight a crystal wall is put up due to Suicune falling sick, preventing them from continuing the fight. In The Last Battle XII, Crystal takes the three to Ilex Forest to continue the fight. It later joins Silver to help in the final assault against the Masked Man, before returning to the wild.

Personality and characteristics

Entei, like its fellow beasts, is loyal and holds Ho-Oh in high regards, wishing to save it from The Masked Man's control. It is also thankful to Yellow for freeing them from their trap. Entei is also cooperative with the other beasts, having stopped the Poké Balls with Raikou from reaching Suicune during their battle against Falkner. Like the other beasts, Entei possess sentient intelligence, understanding that Blaine needed its help to cure his disease. Entei also does care for the safety of humans having not only saved Gold and Silver but also healed them from their icy prison. Entei is also perceptive, having identified that the Bird Keeper had wanted to capture it and Raikou.

Entei's fire has a healing effect, burning away disease and evil auras. Its fire is also capable of permanently melting away the Masked Man's moving ice sculptures, which typically repair themselves from any attack. Much like the other beasts, Entei is able to communicate with Suicune and Entei telepathically. Similarly, Entei is able to jump at great distances and height and at times fly. All three can also appear as a beam of light while flying. The three of them have also been remarked on their fast speed.
