For all 3 times I've played through X, when I battle Xerneas, I always managed to catch it on the first ball for all 3 times. I always use an Ultra Ball. So does Xerneas have a high catch rate? If so, what is it?

I think this counts as being too easy to look up. https://pokemondb.net/pokedex/xerneas

Actually, yes! Most legendary Pokémon have a catch rate of 3, but Xerneas and ayveltal have the catch rate of 45. With this being significantly higher than many others, this is probably why you were able to catch it so easily.

An interesting fact is that this is also Rayquaza's new catch rate in ORAS.

well, it is required to catch them to get past them unlike most other legends
Xerneas and Yveltal only have 45 in X/Y, because they´re required for the story. In USUM, however, they´re almost as hard to catch as many other legendaries, like the Swords of Justice or the Legendary Dogs.
