I mean, it's a remake of Yellow, it's just a bit more liberal with the definition than usual. There's no evidence at this time that Let's Go is ever going to become a "series" of its own. Let's Go's only substantial difference from Yellow was the catching mechanics, and the fact that they made an Eevee version so they could have a pair, whereas Legends: Arceus is clearly doing its own thing without adhering in any way to the plot or pre-formed layout of Diamond & Pearl.Let's Go Pikachu, which is a different serie, has pikachu on the box art, like Pokemon Yellow.
I think if Kyurem or Necrozma were to end up on a Legends box, they'd probably have to get a new form. Ultra Necrozma could work for the latter since it technically wasn't the mascot of USUM (it was just hinted at on the box art), and the solution for Kyurem is obvious (although strictly speaking, I think the implication in B2W2 is that the Original Dragon was a separate species rather than a fourth form of Kyurem, which if true makes it a moot point.)
