Legendary Beast Trio Figures
Pokémon Monster Collection Entei, Suicune, Raikou Figures
ポケモン モンスターコレクション エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ フィギュア
Monster Collection is one of the longest-running lines of Pokémon merchandise, going way back to the beginning of the franchise. What I own are two versions of American releases; the earliest released in blister packages with pogs and other Pokémon such as Scizor (in Suicune's case) and Unown (Entei's), the other released in individual packaging nearly identical to the Japanese MC releases, only unnumbered. In the Japanese numbering, Raikou is MC-42, Entei is MC-43, and Suicune MC-44.
**Pokémon Movie 10th Anniversary** Monster Collection Set BOX
Metallic Entei, Suicune Figures
**Pokémon Movie 10th Anniversary** モンスターコレクションセットBOX メタリック エンテイ、スイクン フィギュア
Takara Tomy 2007
Quickly becoming rare and sought after the box's release in 2007 for the 10th anniversary of Pokémon movies, this metallic version of the Suicune and Entei MC were quite hard for me to find for comparatively-recent items. However, it is well worth the search, having an absolutely gorgeous pearly sheen. The one downside however is that finish makes the figures slightly sticky to the touch. Absol was also released in this box set, and can be seen under the Absol figures page.
Pokémon MonColle+ Entei, Suicune, Raikou Figures
ポケモン モンコレプラス エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ フィギュア
Takara Tomy 2009
Like new versions of V-Trainer figures, MonColle+ are much more dynamic than normal MC figures. Standing on gray bases that store data, you can "train" these figures by battling them against other figures in specialized electronic readers. The figure poses are even more dynamic than normal MC figures, all of which feature a unique mold not used in any other figure. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune also got special limited shiny versions, which can be seen on the Shiny Merchandise page.
Pokémon Deluxe Figure Collection Entei, Suicune, Raikou
ポケモン デラックスフィギュアコレクション エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
The original giant Tomy figures. They feature moveable limbs and heads (except in Suicune's case; just moveable limbs) and until the new versions released nine years later, were the largest beast trio figures made. While not too difficult to find, it can be hard to find them with their tags still attached and without paint rubs. These figures also got two releases: Japanese, and American in the Pokémon Center New York.
Pokémon Sofubi Figure Raikou, Entei, Suicune
Takara Tomy 2010
Even larger and more detailed than their original counterparts, these figures also reflect the beast trio's new Sugimori character designs. (Entei's more sleek mane, Suicune's larger paws in relation to legs, and Raikou's fur tufts near the rear legs, to name a few details.) For those wanting to save room or are picky about what they choose for their collections, I recommend these figures over their original counterparts in terms of quality. (Not to say the originals weren't amazing in their own right.)
New Pokémon Kids Series II Part 2, 3, 4 Entei, Suicune, Raikou Normal & Clear Versions
新ポケモンキッズシリーズIIパート2、3、4 エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ ノーマル&クリアバージョン
Bandai Japan 2000/2001
Missing Raikou Kids card from this set!
The original beast trio Kids figures, and the only ones of Suicune and Raikou to have clear variants. They are also unique in Kids figures in having no hollow opening. And while the normal variants are relatively easy to come by, the clears are like most original Johto Kids in being nearly impossible to track down. It took me years to finally get all three, the last being Entei's. Entei and Suicune were rereleased in a special movie commemoration pack. As for what came with each Kid, they were originally simply cards instead of seals. In addition, if I remember correctly, each Kid card came random, instead of matching the Kid packaged.
Pokemon Kids Johto Chihouhen 2 Entei, Raikou
ポケモンキッズDP ジョウト地方編2 エンテイ、ライコウ
Bandai Japan 2010
These adorable Kids figures are surprisingly smaller than even the new release Suicune Kid, but are equally adorable. Sadly, like the new Suicune Kid, these Kids don't have clear variants either. (There hadn't been clear variants released in sets since DP 8 in 2008.) I especially love Entei's pose since like his second Kid mold, he greatly resembles a shishi.
Pokémon Kids Movies A Set Suicune, B Set Entei, Raikou Metallic Versions
ポケモンキッズムービーズ Aセット スイクン、Bセット エンテイ、ライコウ メタリックバージョン
Bandai Japan 2010
Released only in special movie commemoration packs, these Kids feature beautiful glittery metallic flecks in the plastic that are difficult to capture in a photograph. While Suicune's mold is the same as its previous new release, Entei and Raikou feature completely new molds.
Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation KeshiPoké Real Color Collection Series 4 Entei, Suicune, Raikou Figures
ポケットモンスター アドバンスジェナレーション けしポケ第4弾 リアルカラーコレクション エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ フィギュア
Easily among the rarest general release beast trio figures. I am extremely lucky to even own these figures, and I have close friend Gin of Sunyshore to thank for that. Different from the newer DP sets, AG KeshiPoké have more rubbery plastic and are a little larger as well. KeshiPoké come blind-boxed in rubber eraser Pokéballs (hence the name; keshi is part of the Japanese word for eraser [消しゴム]), and because of their large sets, quickly become rare and sought once out of production, especially AG set figures like these.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl KeshiPoké Series 9 Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール けしポケ第9弾 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
The first new KeshiPoké for Suicune and Raikou in around five years or so, they are smaller and less rubbery than their AG counterparts. However, they are still highly detailed and great figures to own.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl KeshiPoké Series 10 Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール けしポケ第10弾 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Released in a set commemorating the 13th Pokémon movie, the beast trio yet again got new KeshiPoké releases. (This made for Entei's fourth KeshiPoké figure!) Interestingly, the molds for these figures are extremely similar to the beasts' original AG set release; only differences are size, less rubbery plastic, Entei's mane being slightly different, and Suicune's ribbons being thinner. A rather interesting choice that I see as paying homage to their much rarer, older counterparts.
Pokémon Model 2000 Entei, Suicune, Raikou Figures
ポケモンモデル2000 エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ フィギュア
Bandai Japan 2000
These old, rubbery beast trio models can be very difficult to find complete; Suicune's ribbons and Raikou's tail tend to become lost. Sometimes even the eye stickers can fall off. I was extremely lucky to find these guys in perfect condition, even unassembled in Suicune and Entei's cases. Very lovely figures to own.
Zukan/Visual Pokédex Special 03 1/40 Scale Entei, Suicune, Raikou
立体ポケモン図鑑 スペシャル03 1/40スケール エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
Raikou, Entei, and Suicune figures in perfect 1/40 scale, the Zukan/Visual Pokédex line's major selling and collectibility point. The ones I own are a European release of the original Japanese release from 2005, identical except for the capsules they came out of. (The bases even retain the original kana of the beasts' names on the bottom.) The figures got a rerelease in 2010 in commemoration of the 13th Pokémon movie, and even recolored into the first ever official shiny Zukan in the DP SP set. (They can be seen on the Shiny Merchandise page.)
Pokémon Stamp Part 6 Entei, Suicune, Raikou
Extremely rare stamps from the Stamp 151 series. Not many know that there were a few sets in the series that featured Johto Pokémon, all of whom (including the beasts) are difficult to find. They are beautifully detailed as well, both in the figure and the stamp itself, which is not self-inked. Interestingly, Suicune's figure shares a mold with the YuraYura Clip Suicune, which can be seen on its individual item page.
Pokémon Battle Museum Entei, Suicune, Raikou
Bandai Japan 2000
These figures with interlocking bases are part of a long-running Bandai series with occasional rebranding that runs from Full Color Collection at the beginning of the franchise all the way to today's Chou Get. While not too difficult to find, it can be hard to find them with their name and attack stickers still intact. Battle Museum sets also included one Unown that eventually added up to spelling ENTEI, in commemoration of the third Pokémon movie. The beasts also got extremely rare, special campaign gold and silver variants, which can be seen on the Promotional Merchandise page.
TM Collection 02 "TM05 Roar" Entei, "TM04 Calm Mind" Suicune, "TM33 Reflect" Raikou
わざマシンコレクション02 「わざマシン05 ほえる」 エンテイ、「わざマシン04 めいそう」 スイクン、「わざマシン33 リフレクター」 ライコウ
Bandai Japan 2005
From the same ongoing Bandai series as Battle Museum, TM Collection are baseless penciltopper figures that each represent an attack, often a TM. All three of the beasts represent a TM; Entei is TM05 Roar, Suicune is TM04 Calm Mind, and Raikou is TM33 Reflect.
Pokémon Action Figure series 4, 5 Suicune, Entei, Clear Suicune
ポケモン アクションフィギュア4、5 スイクン、エンテイ、クリア スイクン
Bandai Japan 2000
The ancestors of Pose Figures, Action Figures are hard plastic figures with ball-socket limbs. Suicune came in set 4, while Entei and Clear Suicune came in set 5. Can be a little hard to find, but recommended for their great detail and quality.
Pokémon McDonald's Happy Meal Monster Ball Launcher Entei, Suicune
ポケモン マクドナルド ハッピーセット モンスターボールランチャー エンテイ、スイクン
Very unique figures on wheels that launch out of Master Balls that came in Japanese Happy Meals back in 2002.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Chou Get Taizen Zenkoku Version 06, 07 Suicune, Entei, Raikou
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド・パール 超ゲット大全ぜんこくバージョン06、07
Bandai Japan 2009
The current series in the continuous Bandai gashapon series that included Battle Museum and TM Collection, these Chou Get were released to commemorate the Japanese release of HeartGold and SoulSilver. Each figure got one rerelease as well; Entei in Zenkoku 10, Suicune in Zenkoku 11, and Raikou in Zenkoku 12.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Gattai! Battle Jungle Game
Tap-Tap Battle Game Entei
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド・パール 合体！バトルジャングルゲーム
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S 2009
A very cool minature playset that's also a game. You tap on the tabs on each side, and the base rumbles, the Entei figure along with it!
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Gattai! Battle Mountain Game
Waterfall Stage Suicune, Thunder Cloud Stage Raikou
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド・パール 合体！バトルマウンテンゲーム
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S 2009
A continuation of the minature playsets that included Entei. Suicune's base features a rumbling waterfall that moves when you pull a tab, while Raikou sits on a cloud that rocks when moved.
Pokémon Trading Figure Third Series Entei, Suicune, Raikou
Pokémon USA/Kaiyodo 2009
These Trading Figures have a very interesting history. They were from an unnamed third set that was in production but never came to be officially because of Pokémon USA axing the Trading Figure series. eBay sellers who normally sold bootlegs and factory rejects suddenly began selling these figures, which are likely not bootlegs judging on the quality (which is on-par with known official Trading Figures) and copyright information on the bottom of the bases. They are likely the figures meant to be released in the third set before Pokémon USA halted production, but for some reason were never destroyed. (Not that I'm complaining!) It was a big mistake to end this series in my opinion, especially since I'm a big fan of Kaiyodo sculpting work, and I'm really happy to have these figures in my collection instead of never seeing the light of day in a chipper.
Pokémon Clipping Figure Collection 2 Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモン クリッピングフィギュアコレクション2 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Bandai Japan 2010
Clipping Figures are named for the cards they come with, called "clippings", that feature the figure in dynamic scenery with some trivia. Every Clipping Figure features a unique mold never used before, and are a favorite of collectors because of this. And these Clipping Figures of the beast trio certainly live up to that, being larger than average mini-figures and having especially amazing molds and "clippings".
Pokémon PlaMo Collection Select Series Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモン プラモコレクションセレクトシリーズ ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Bandai Japan 2010
Gorgeously detailed injection models with rage-free assembly, I had a great time putting these guys together. Each even features their own "action"; Entei's mouth opens wide, Suicune's mane flutters, and Raikou's head and mane rear up.
Pokémon Pose Figure '10 Movie Version Raikou, Suicune
Takara Tomy ARTS 2010
These are heavy, hard-plastic candytoy figures with moveable limbs. Entei came in a previous set with Ho-Oh and Lugia, and can be seen on its individual item page.
Chupa Surprise Pocket Monsters DP '10 Movie Version Raikou, Entei, Suicune
チュッパサプライズ ポケットモンスターDP'10劇場版 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Takara Tomy ARTS 2010
Chupa Surprise figures are candytoys that come blind-packaged with Chupa-Chups lollipops, in plastic Pokéballs encased over the top of the sucker. These figures came in a set commemorating the 13th Pokémon movie, and feature molds not used in any other beast figure.
Pokémon Figure Cap Collection Raikou, Entei, Suicune
Takara Tomy ARTS 2010
Originally known as PokéColle Caps, these bottlecaps with candy can be extremely difficult to find, even if it's a newer release. These guys were no exception, for some reason quickly becoming scarce even after release. However, they were well worth the search, and are proudly in my collection alongside the original PokéColle Cap Suicune.
Pokémon Candy Container Jirachi Edition Raikou, Entei, Suicune Figures
These surprisingly-large figures were exclusive to Europe, and came in Pokéball containers with candy (hence the name) and a sheet of stickers of every Pokémon in that particular set. Topps had been making Candy Container figures for years, even an Entei nine years before, but unfortunately discontinued the series once Generation V started.
Poké Ball Twister Figures Raikou, Entei, Suicune
Bandai Europe 2011
With the last fringes of the HeartGold/SoulSilver promotion in favor of Black and White, comes these gorgeous European-exlusive figure tops, complete with unique molds. Like Beyblades but cooler, these tops launch out of their Pokéballs to combat each other. These figures are also huge; to put it in perspective, the Pokéballs are 1:1 life size. Entei comes with a Timer Ball, Raikou a Quick Ball, and Suicune a Dive Ball. For the Italian language release of these figures, Bandai released them jointly with famous Italian toy company Giochi Preziosi.
Pokémon Basic Figure Series 18 Raikou, Entei, Suicune
Jakks Pacific 2011
Right on the cusp of moving onto Black and White merchandise, Jakks Pacific released these unique figures. I'm rather impressed with their quality, and they stand out from other beast figures out there. Raikou has its upward-flowing mane, Entei loving eyes and a body-hugging mane inspired by the new HGSS Sugimori design, and Suicune a rippling mane that flows upwards as well.
Legendary Beast Trio Keychains/Straps
Pokémon Medal Swing Series 7 Entei, Suicune
(Missing Raikou from this set.)
Quite easily some of the rarest beast trio keychains out there, Johto Pokémon in the Medal Swing series are incredibly hard to come by. Despite being small, they are beautiful as well. Medal Swing is notorious in having large, blind-packaged sets. (Some as large as 78 pieces!)
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Pokémon Strap Johto Special
Entei, Suicune, Raikou Normal & Clear Versions
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド・パール ポケモンストラップジョウトスペシャル
Bandai Japan 2009
One of the first new pieces of beast merchandise that came with the HeartGold and SoulSilver hype, these straps are large and beautiful, especially the clear versions. And like many Suicune strap figures, the Suicune is hard to stand on its own.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Figure Keychain ~Ho-oh, Lugia Toujouhen~ Entei, Suicune, Raikou
ポケットモンスターダイヤモンド&パール フィギュアキーホルダー～ホウオウ・ルギア登場編～ エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
Large figure keychains made by Banpresto, that have been a main-stay of Banpresto prizes since at least the beginning of the DP era. This particular set saw a rerelease in the summer of 2010, in commemoration of the 13th Pokémon movie.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Figure Keychain ~Shiny Color Ver.~ Entei, Suicune, Raikou
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール フィギュアキーホルダー～シャイニーカラーver.～ エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
Identical in mold to the figure keychains above, only with a beautiful pearly sheen. The one downside to this finish is that they make the figures slightly sticky to the touch, but it's worth the trade-off in my opinion.
Pokémon Netsuke Mascot Johto Chihouhen 2 Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモン 根付マスコットジョウト地方編2 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S 2010
One of my favorite new series of gashapon merchandise, Netsuke Mascots are heavily Japanese, inspired by both netsuke and kifuda (Japanese wooden name tags). I absolutely love their unique molds and matte finish, and their braided cords. They also saw a rerelease in commemoration of movie 13, the straps and name tags becoming dark blue.
Pokémon Strap 2010 Movie Raikou, Entei, Suicune
Bandai Japan 2010
Gorgeous, large straps with unique molds once again, released to commemorate movie 13. For once Suicune can easily stand on its own, too!
DS Chara Touch Pen Pocket Monsters DP 2010 Movie Ver.
Raikou Normal & Clear, Entei Normal & Clear, Suicune Normal & Clear
ライコウ ノーマル&クリア、エンテイ ノーマル&クリア、スイクン ノーマル&クリア
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S 2010
These gashapon figure styluses can become notoriously hard to find, due to being exclusive to 7-11. I was extremely lucky in getting nearly all of them from a close friend, who saw the 13th movie in Japan. I can't thank her enough for it and all the other help she gave me, thank you Toz!
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Adjustable Mascot Stylus DS Plus Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール 伸びる！マスコットタッチペンDSプラス ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
These are gorgeous slide-adjustable styluses compatible with all models of DS (including 3DS), with KeshiPoké-sized figures of each beast at the top! The styluses also come with a strap attached, to attach conveniently to your DS.
Legendary Beast Trio Miscellaneous
Pokémon Picture Awase Puzzle Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモン 絵あわせパズル ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
A very rare amusement prize slide-puzzle made by Banpresto. I really love the unique artwork used, and the Fast Ball being used as the stopper. (I've always associated the Fast Ball with the beast trio.)
Pocket Monsters Monster Ball Badge Entei, Suicune, Raikou
ポケットモンスター モンスターボールバッジ エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
Media Factory 2000?
(Missing Raikou in Master Ball from this set.)
Another old staple series, Monster Ball Badge were enameled metal badges of Kanto and Johto Pokémon that came inside plastic Pokéball cases that can clip to a belt.
Pokémon Power Rollers Entei, Suicune, Raikou
Magic Box Int. 2006
Very unique and surprisingly heavy plastic rollers that roll on a metal ball-bearing in the bottom. Each Pokémon came in various colors, and each color had flecks of glitter in the clear plastic.
Pokémon Center Johto Pokédex Metal Charms Entei, Suicune, Raikou
ポケモンセンター ジョウト図鑑メタルチャーム エンテイ、スイクン、ライコウ
Pokémon Center 2009
A part of a Pokémon Center promotion of small metal charms of every HeartGold and SoulSilver dex Pokémon. I am absolutely in love with these, and really appreciate the hard work Gin of Sunyshore went through to get them. A year later they were released in shiny colors in a three set during a Pokémon Center lottery promotion of the shiny beast trio, and can be seen on the Shiny Merchandise page.
Pokémon Center National Pokédex Metal Charms 243 Raikou, 244 Entei, 245 Suicune
ポケモンセンター 全国ずかんメタルチャーム 243 ライコウ、244 エンテイ、245 スイクン
Pokémon Center 2012
Black and White seems to have broken all molds in Pokémon collecting, and this promotion of metal charms is no exception. Banpresto's My Pokémon Collection made the unprecidented move of aiming to release every Unova Pokémon in plush form, and the Pokémon Center seemed to turn that into a challenge and decided to release every single Pokémon up to Kyurem in metal charm form. I'm especially excited to see the Beast Trio in new poses, though I would've bought this set anyway even if they weren't.
Pokémon Center MEDALIEF Coin Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモンセンター メダリーフコイン ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Pokémon Center/MEDALIEF 2010
Like typical tourist attractions in many places, the Pokémon Centers in Japan have special coin-pressing machines. However, these pressed coins can become quickly difficult to obtain, due to the frequency of the characters being switched out, and the disinterest of Yahoo Japan sellers to sell them a lot of the time. Entei was actually released twice; once during the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Pokémon movies, and rereleased during the thirteenth Pokémon movie's run in 2010 alongside Raikou, Suicune, Zorua, and Zoroark.
Pokémon Metal Collection DP 10 Raikou (Gold, Silver, Shakudō, Brass), Entei (Gold, Silver, Shakudō, Brass), Suicune (Gold, Silver, Shakudō, Brass) Coins
ポケモンメタルコレクションDP10 ライコウ（金、銀、赤銅、黄銅）、エンテイ（金、銀、赤銅、黄銅）、スイクン（金、銀、赤銅、黄銅） コイン
The Metal Collection series is one of the oldest and longest continuous-running series in Pokémon merchandise, having started around 1997. It spans every Generation, and it can take years to collect every variation released of a Pokémon. Despite only being released in 2010, this quickly became the case with these Beast Trio coins. However, I managed to pull every color finally, through ordering a total of seven complete sets from a Japanese online shop using a deputy service. I love coins, and I'm proud to have completed the set.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Cheers PuraGlass Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスターダイヤモンド＆パール 乾杯プラグラス ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
This childrens' plastic glass was one of the earliest of the new Beast Trio items released in commemoration of HeartGold and SoulSilver. It also originally came with a plastic glass of Ho-Oh and Lugia.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Digital Watch Neo ③ Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスターダイヤモンド＆パール デジタルウォッチNEO③ ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Takara Tomy/EnSky 2009
An amazing candytoy digital watch of all three beasts.
New Pokédex Case National Pokédex Raikou, Entei, Suicune
新ポケモン図鑑ケース ぜんこくずかん編 ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S 2010
A more unusual addition to my collection, you can insert each clear card into the plastic Pokédex to reveal hidden information of each Pokémon.
Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl Kisekae Hard Cover DS Lite Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケットモンスターダイヤモンド&パール 着せかえ Hard Cover DS Lite
I am in love with this DS Lite cover. It is actually a film that you attach to a clear hard cover, so you can switch it out with other films anytime you want.
Pokémon Center Raikou, Entei, Suicune Chocolate Gallettes Tin
ポケモンセンター ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン チョコレートガレット缶
Pokémon Center 2001?
An extremely rare and beautiful chocolate gallettes tin from the Pokémon Center. It's also one of few items from back in the day to feature all three of the beasts. The details on it are very gorgeous, such as the beasts having shiny silver borders. While there's no year marked on the tin, I'm going to guess it was made in 2001 since the expiration date for the chocolate gallettes that were once inside was June 12, 2002.
Meiji Pokémon Can Choco Snack Raikou, Entei, Suicune
明治 ポケモン缶チョコスナック ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Meiji Chocolate 2010
These are small tins that once held very delicious and crunchy Meiji Choco Snacks. I really love the artwork on these tins, and eating the Choco Snacks as well. (I really want more!)
Pokémon Center Ice Box Cookie Tin Zoroark, Zorua, Raikou, Entei, Suicune
ポケモンセンター アイスボックスクッキー缶 ゾロアーク、ゾロア、ライコウ、エンテイ、スイクン
Pokémon Center 2010
Another amazing tin featuring beast trio artwork, and the first item in my collection that also featured Zorua and Zoroark. The tin once held Ice Box Cookies, however I never got a chance to eat them.
