Heavy Ball Graphs

Below are some graphs that show you the multipliers that you get when using a Heavy Ball on heavy pokémon. The multiplier depends on the catch rate of the pokémon as well as the weight of the heavy pokémon. In a few cases, for very heavy pokémon, you get a better multiplier than even the 8x Level Ball or Love Ball.

For each chart, on the left, you see the modifier that that pokémon gets (so 8 means that the heavy ball is 8x as effective as a regular pokéball, a 5 means that the heavy ball is 5x as effective, etc.) On the bottom are the catch rates, in the range of 3 to 255. Note that when a heavy ball is thrown at any pokémon weighing at least 451.5lbs, it always gives a better than 1x chance of catching the pokémon, but for pokémon with high catch rates (i.e. those who are easy to catch), the improvement is much less.

In short, a heavy ball is best thrown at a hard-to-catch heavy pokémon.
