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 too 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, Suicune 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 deaths 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 too 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, the beasts decide 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. Raikou is passed to Gold as the three Johto Dex holders enter the crack in time.

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
Raikou and Anabel

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 Omega Alpha Adventure 16, 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 deaths 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 first appeared alongside Raikou and Suicune in Slugging It Out With Slugma, where they were seen exiting the Burned Tower as beams of light.

Entei officially debuted in Really Raikou & Entirely Entei I, where it and Raikou 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 Entei and Raikou into hitting each other, leaving them distracted long enough to attempt a capture.

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

In Sandslash Surprise, it is revealed that Entei rescued Gold and Silver from drowning after their defeat at the hands of the Masked Man. Entei took the two to one of the Whirl Islands, where it used its Flames of Life to keep them warm as they recuperated.

With Blaine

In Playful Porygon2, Entei appears at the Indigo Plateau, where it fought against Silver and Blue due to the intense heat caused by its presence leading the two towards it. The two Trainers attacked Entei with their Gyarados, forcing it to retaliate with its flames, distracting them long enough for it to escape. Silver, recognizing the flames, realized that Entei was the one who saved him and Gold earlier and comes to the conclusion that they are on the same side. Silver attempts to call out to Entei and requests that they fight together to put an end to the Masked Man, but was too late, as Entei had already chosen Blaine to be its Trainer.

Blaine agrees to help Entei, but reveals that due to an earlier experiment with Mewtwo, there are cells in his body that are slowly killing him. Blaine has Entei use its Flames of Life to burn away the cells, saving his life and severing the connection he had with Mewtwo in the process.

In The Last Battle II, Blaine uses Entei to battle Clair in the final exhibition match between the Kanto and Johto Gym Leaders. With Entei's power, Blaine easily defeats Clair, making Kanto the winners of the tournament.

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 too 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, the beasts decide to partner with Crystal instead. In The Last Battle XII, Crystal, Entei, Raikou, 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. Entei is passed to Silver as the three Johto Dex holders enter the crack in time.

After the Masked Man is defeated, Entei, Raikou, and Suicune return to the wild.

Personality and characteristics

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

Entei possesses a special type of flame known as the "Flames of Life" (Japanese: 命の炎). In addition to burning, the flames possess the ability to heal injuries and disease. They are also hot enough to permanently melt away the Masked Man's moving ice sculptures, which typically repair themselves via moisture from the air.
