Entei, The Volcano Pokémon. Volcanoes erupt when it barks. Unable to restrain its extreme power, it races headlong around the land. It is said that one is born every time a new volcano appears. It courses around the earth, spouting flames hotter than a volcano's magma. It embodies the passion of magma. It sends up massive bursts of fire that utterly consume all that they touch.

Strategy Using Entei

Entei is very much like Moltres, it has decent stats but also has a limited movepool. It has both high attack, special attack and speed.
However, Entei is lacking in defense, and needs to be able to defend itself against moves from water/ground moves and pokemon. His base attack 115, making Double edge quite a powerful attack.
Even though it recieves recoil damage, it will help trigger the salac berry. If Sunny day is set up, it will allow Fire Blast to become one powerful STABbed sweeper that will blast most pokemon away.
Endure is for those battles when you're against a pokemon that will be able to use moves like Earthquake to instantly OHKO Entei.
Although it might be wise to replace Double edge with body slam, the chance of paralysis may allow more time to set up Sunny day to power up Fire Blast. If you don't want Endure, I suggest replacing that with Solarbeam.
It doesn't learn much in the way of physical attacks though, which is a shame really, because it can't use that high attack strength to its best.

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack for Entei with any remaining in Attack & Defense

Strategy Against Entei

Entei' Defenses are about average and close to equal so a Special or Water/Rock/Ground Volley should work wonders
