Entei is a legendary Pokemon and one of the hardest raid bosses available in Pokemon Go; he is not soloable and early indications show it can take 6+ trainers to defeat Entei. It will take a team of high CP Pokemon that are super-effective against him; namely water-types such as Vaporeon and Omastar and ground-types such as Golem, Rhydon and Tyranitar.

Attackers & Tips
Entei will need to be taken on by 6+ trainers who have a team of high CP super effective Pokemon, preferably ground-type, to defeat it.
Rhydon, Golem, Vaporeon and Omastar would be good choices to face Entei
Entei is a pure fire-type Pokemon and is highly susceptible to ground-type and water-type attacks, making Rhydon, Golem, Tyranitar, Vaporeon and Omastar the best of a number of perfect counters. Earthquake and Hydro Pump will deal a good amount of super-effective damage to Entei.
Aside from these options, you want Pokemon who will deal as much damage as possible (Dragonite, Gyarados etc). It may also be a good idea to use a Blissey as an anchor Pokemon in your sixth slot. Remember to dodge as much as possible, preferably EVERYTHING, especially the charge move.
