Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal

Why is Raikou the top dog? (No pun intended.) Although both Raikou and Suicune have attacks for one of each other's weaknesses, and they both have a base stat total of 580, Raikou's speed and stamina is much better than Suicune's. We're sure Suicune would put up a good fight, but we're going with Raikou. Similar to its fellow legendary dogs Raikou doesn't have an assortment of moves, but it's still a really good Pokemon.
