Is it just me or are legendaries WAY easier to catch now?

I caught Yveltal on the second try (accidently one shot fainted him the first time) with a quick ball. I caught Zygarde in literally 3 turns with a dusk ball. I doubt im just getting lucky. It seems like they made catching legendaries and pokemon in general way easier this time. I'm hoping the rest of the legendaries (mewtwo, the birds, etc.) prove much tougher than this. I preferred when catching a legendary felt like an epic battle.

Just Xerneas and Yveltal
The other legendairies still have their same capture rates as previous games

Since BW, capturing legendaries have become super easy. I catch everything using the standard Pokeball and I caught Xerneas a few times without even injuring it (was resetting for the right IV-spread), within 5-10 throws too.

i had one hell of a time with zygarde the first time. the second time i got it low and threw a MOTHER F***ING NET BALL and caught it. it was like the 3rd ball i threw. i thought it was a dusk ball, but i still caught it with a net ball.

the first time i throw at least 50 ultras and used a quick on the third turn, and some timers toward the end before my team blacked out.
Koji throws that splitter like Mariano threw his cutter. We all know it's coming, yet no one hits it.

Oh yes they seem to be. I hit Mewtwo 2 times, just barely putting him in the red. Then I threw a single Dusk ball, catching him. On the other hand, I've had extremely difficult times catching some wild pokemon though. I had a level 25 pokemon almost kill my entire team of level 80's while I sat there throwing ultra balls the whole time... he was in the red and would immediately break out of those timer balls too.

I caught Zygarde in a regular pokeball on my very first throw while its HP was in the yellow. At first I thought I was extremely lucky, but after reading some topics and responses here, I think it probably is easier than before. Though there was still probably a little bit of luck in catching it that quickly.

capture power does wonders

Didn't even think of that. I'm still not quite sure how opowers work

Capture power mixed with quick balls are basically masterballs for everything
