Pokemon Y. Yveltal is probably my favorite legendary.

Thats a terrible metric to measure what game to get. Please slap yourself silly for making such dumb reasoning.

Get Pokemon Y first then Alpha Sapphire. Both great games though in my opinion

If you never played the original R/S I'd start with Alpha Sapphire. Both are great and worth it, but I think I big portion of my enjoyment for Y came from the pure insanity of the online when the game first came out. Literally millions of participants, and the wondertrading and GTS were a blast to take advantage of.

But to answer your question, Kyogre over Yveltal for me.

In terms of the box art legendary? Yveltal, it doesn't hurt his case that Oblivion Wing looks f***ing awesome. Also you don't have to wait through 20 minutes of cutscene after you catch him.

This. None of the 3DS box legends come close to matching baconbird in sheer awesomeness.

AS has more content. Tons of legendaries to catch postgame, an e4 rematch, a postgame miniarc ending in you getting an overpowered mega pokemon and a battle facility to earn battle points to trade for items and moves

Just wanted to point out that, as with most legendaries in the 3DS games, you get another chance to catch it after beating the E4. Catching it during the plot is not neccessary.

The one who doesn't get a re-run is Rayquaza.

Also, in terms of legendaries to catch Alpha Sapphire has way more of them. Like a boxart legendary from every previous generation except Mewtwo from 1 and from XY. Including some of the "trio" stuff and a legendary that was previously event only.

Pokemon Y just has the legendary from Y and the ones from the first generation.
