Actually, this is like Reshiram/Zekrom, you HAVE to catch the main legend. If you KO the legend, it will stay there and the game will say "It seems Xerneas\ Yveltal wants to help." until you catch him, which is fairly easy. That happened to me once with Yveltal, as I got Pokemon Y. So my source is past experience, which is the best resource in my opinion.

my brother  hit his yevelta with one   not very effective move and threw a dusk ball and it caught...... and i  OHO'd  it with a moonblast
it forces you to catch it, it'll keep battling until you have it, I've killed him before to so I know this
Though I don't think it'd be that crazy tough to get Xerneas/Yveltal because they have the highest catch rate of all legends, tied with each other and another guy I forgot.

Beat the E4, come back, and Xerneas will return, giving you another chance to catch it.

Source: Experience

yeah with all games if you defeat the legendaries beat the elite 4 and they will reappear
actually Koing Xearneas has no effect, he will still be there just like in Black and white you are forced to catch the main legendary.
Just because he might have got the answer wrong doesn't mean he doesn't know that. I see you both as even. He said yes and you say no, and you both say that you know from experience.
