Route 25

Where?

North of Cerulean City, towards Bill's Sea Cottage. Head up Nugget Bridge and then to the right where all the trainers are, taking the only path through the maze until you come to the top where there's a Camper; there, just turn left to get to the grass. The pond where you can surf and fish is on the eastern side, below Bill's cottage.

Notes

Once you've encountered it in the overworld in several places (north of Cianwood, outside the middle entrance of Mt. Mortar, Vermilion City, Route 14) and gotten Misty to return to her Gym, Suicune (level 40) will be waiting for you here at the top of the cape on the far eastern edge.

How to read this table

The bolded horizontal headings stand for the main condition that affects the following slots; the big cells on the left side describe which circumstances must apply for the rows they span to be active. The percentages tell you the chance of a Pokémon from this slot (row) appearing for any given wild encounter, provided the condition on the left holds.

Each condition (i.e. each bolded horizontal heading) always has the same number of slots active. Usually it's two, though the radio condition in HG/SS has four slots and tables can have any number of static slots combined under one blank condition (-) for less cluttered viewing. This is reflected in the slots usually being displayed in pairs, which except for the aforementioned HG/SS radio conditions always means that only one pair is active at any one time. (For the radio conditions, it's either two pairs or one quadruple.)

If all this confuses you, and I don't blame you, just set the conditions in the form on the right to what actually applies for you right now and press the Refresh Table View button, which will hide all the inactive slots and leave only the Pokémon you're actually going to be seeing. This will also recalculate the statistics at the bottom of the table accordingly.
