I'm trying to get it but I don't know what probabilities are to catch it, or where should I have to search for it.

His catch rate is 3, which is very low –  Ben Brocka Apr 7 '12 at 18:51

Find a route where you can enter and leave the route with nearby grass. (Ecruteak City is a good start since by the south side of this city has nearby grass). Take about 20 steps in the grass with the repel. If no Pokemon appear, Raikou or Entei are not there leave the area and come back.

Once you find it put it to sleep, if you try to trap it it will just roar you away. If you want to avoid other random encounters, you could use something like a level 39 haunter/gengar or jynx with a sleep move first in your team, and use repels so that everything below that level will stay away from you. It will be easier to find after you've found it once. Another way is to use a golbat, weaken it, and use mean look.

Repel - +1 for the tip on lv 39 really usefull if the pokemon is in that area (good for Swarming Pokémon too) –  Michel Apr 7 '12 at 15:45

I would recommend the Master Ball for catching him. If you don't want to waste a Master Ball on him, you can use the Pokemon Cloning cheat. Besides cloning the Pokemon, it will clone the item attached to the pokemon. Just attach the Master Ball to the cloned Pokemon and you will get two.

Then you can use the Repel and route switching technique to hopefully find Raikou. Good luck!

I found and caught Raikou on Route 45, by Blackthorn City. I caught him by using the Master ball, Professor Oak gave to me. He said it never misses. Knowing that and that Raikou flees every time, I used the master ball the first time I saw him and wah la! Got him :)

Catch an Electrode or Voltorb: Entei and Raikou cannot flee because of their soundproof ability . To make it easy, paralyze them or let them sleep.

Also, you don't necessarily need a master ball: you can catch it with a pokeball.
