Attackers & Tips
Suicune will need to be taken on by 6+ trainers who have a team of high CP super effective Pokemon, preferably electric-type and grass-type, to defeat it.
Zapdos, Jolteon, Exeggutor and Venusaur would be good choices to face Suicune
Suicune is a pure water-type Pokemon and is highly susceptible to electric-type and grass-type attacks, making Zapdos, Jolteon, Exeggutor and Venusaur the best of a number of perfect counters. Thunderbolt, Thunder and Solar Beam will deal a good amount of super-effective damage to Suicune.
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.
