What is the most effective way to prevent Raikou and Entei from fleeing?

I've heard the best thing to do is have a Wobbuffet with Shadow Tag in your party. I just wanted to make sure this the most efficient thing to do and make sure there's no held item or anything that prevents wild Pokemon from fleeing or something like that. Thanks. :)
This calls for science!

also remember that Raikou has roar so he can bypass any of those by making YOU flee

mean look or area trap + taunt is the best way to go if you want to counter roar.

If you like Mean Look you can catch Lv 51 Golbats in Mt Silver with awesome speed stats. Just have to watch out for "Roar"

A pokemon with the ability sondproof isn't affected by roar, so you could baton pass mean look to a soundproof pokemon. Exploud is the only one i can think of but there are more.

You could breed Hypnosis on a Mr. Mime with Soundproof. Once you pass Mean Look to him he can keep them from fleeing, won't be affected by Roar, and can put them back to sleep when they wake up, making caputring them much easier.
It would appear that I have been driven to madness. Probably would have been faster to walk.

I've always been fond of specialising a Smeargle for capture duty.

Mean Look/Block/Spider Web
Spore/freezing move (if you're feeling frisky)
False Swipe
