Is there a trick to this? He's just about the last Poke I need to complete the dex. (Specifically, I was wondering what were the criteria for its location to reset.)

The problem isn't catching him- I have a cloned master ball for that. I need to encounter him, and it's been 100 hours with no luck in that regard.

There is a rather difficult strategy - I'm assuming you have the necessary requirments if you already have Suicune and Entei, but here goes.

If you have met Raikou before, then look for him on the Pokedex. Then cycle from where the national park is (not in it, but where the grass is to the east, where the Sudowoodo was) and check your Pokedex. He won't be near you, so cycle past the wiggly tree, just to the bit of grass before you get to Ecruteak city. Check you Pokedex, and you'll see his position has changed. Keep doing this until he appears on the same route as you.

if you haven't seen him before, however, get a load of max repels, and go to the same place as before. Then, cylce in the grass in one of the two places until the Max Repel runs out. Then use another one and go to the other place of grass. Repeat this until Raikou shows up!

Hope this helped!

I think he just needs help actually SEEING Raikou...
If you do, find two routes adjacent to each other and find a wild pokemon in one of them. If its not Raikou, move to the adjacent one and do the same.
Raikou moves to a different route each time YOU move to a diffrent route/town. Eventually, he should appear in the area you're in. (note: he is sometimes the second pokemon you see.)

There is a thread very similar to this:
http://www.psypokes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16777
It is in the Sevii Islands forum, but the same rules apply (except change 50 to 40, as the dogs' level are 40 in GSC, but 50 in FRLG). Read up on it and you should do fine. Finding Raikou isn't that hard, if you know what to do.
