Get a good Pokeball. An Ultraball is best for Legendary Pokemon such as Entei. Weaken the Pokemon to at least yellow health, but red health is better. Be careful not to go too low because that Pokemon might use Shadow Rush, which makes it hurt itself.
If you accidentally kill the Pokemon that you want to catch, wait and let the opponent defeat you. You should white out with all your experience and return to a computer or a Poke Center machine.
Snaging Shadow Pokemon
You can catch Pokemon a lot easier by following these simple steps. First, knock out every Pokemon except the Shadow Pokemon. Then, take out your Umbreon. Use its faint attack until your opponent's health gets in the orange or red. Note: If it is already in the orange, do not attack it any more. Next, throw a Ultra Ball. Once he starts to throw it, keep pressing [A] until it is either caught or escapes. if it escapes, keep trying until you catch it.
Hold [B] when you throw the Pokeball for a slightly better chance of catching the Pokemon.

Have at least a level 60 Metagross and a level 70 Umbreon. Do not both catching his Shadow Pokemon, just kill it. Note: They will try to use Earthquake, so just Confuse them.
Easier RPG mode
To make the RPG mode a lot easier, stay a few hours in Pyrite Town's Duel Square, even though it is drawn as a circle. You can battle all six of the trainers there repeatedly. This makes purifying Shadow Pokemon a lot easier, and getting 99 of any desired items in the Pokemon Marts all over Orre, because they still keep giving you money. Unfortunately, you only receive a little less then the first cash prize that you received. For example, with the loner trainer on the right, Rider Vant, he will give you 300 for your first win, but every single time you defeat him after that it is 290. Although this takes time, their Pokemon are generally easy to defeat because they are at a low level and most of them are normal types. Note: Each of the Shadow Pokemon they used to have are now replaced with a different Pokemon (starting with lone trainer on right and going counter-clockwise. Also, the money amounts are the cash prizes that you win every time you win a battle with that trainer after the first battle.

When the meter is only four "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will remember one of its original moves. When the meter is only three "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will start earning experience points, but will not be of any benefit until it is fully purified from hate. When the "hate" bar is only two bars long, it will remember a second move that you can use in battle alongside with Shadow Rush and the first one it remembered. When the meter is only one "hate" bar long, your move list will contain four moves, including Shadow Rush. Once that last "hate" bar disappears, you can finally visit the Relic Stone in the Relic Forest in Agate Village, where any nearly purified Pokemon will be fully purified and lose Shadow Rush, gain all its experience (leveling up each time), and remember its fourth initial move. You can still learn new moves by experience, TMs, and HMs.
The PC does a lot more now than to store your Pokemon. It also heals them to full health, removes status ailments (except Hyper Mode), and even revives fallen Pokemon.
Go to a PC if there is not a cure machine or Pokemon Center. Go to Pokemon storage and then select the Pokemon you want to recover. Store it, then withdraw it again. The Pokemon will be cured. You can do this when you do not want to go to a Pokemon Center because it is too far away, or if no cure machine is available.
Use the following trick at a save point to restore your Pokemon to full health. Put the fainted Pokemon in, then take it out again.

Giltch: Unlimited Masterballs

As soon as you get the Master Ball, you can do this trick. On your turn, have the first Pokemon throw the Master Ball. Then, have your second Pokemon switch the Master Ball with any other ball (using [X] or [Y] ). Do anything with the second Pokemon. You will catch the Pokemon without fail, and still have the Master Ball on your next turn.
