The Pokemon doesn't have to be a certain weight to be caught by a Heavy Ball.

Here are some formulas below for HG and SS.

CatchValue = ((( 3 Max HP - 2 HP ) ((Catch Rate - 30) 1 ) / (3 Max HP) ) Status Modifier
CatchValue = ((( 3 Max HP - 2 HP ) ((Catch Rate + 20) 1 ) / (3 Max HP) ) Status Modifier
CatchValue = ((( 3 Max HP - 2 HP ) ((Catch Rate + 30) 1 ) / (3 Max HP) ) Status Modifier
CatchValue = ((( 3 Max HP - 2 HP ) ((Catch Rate + 40) 1 ) / (3 Max HP) ) Status Modifier

The first formula is for Pokemon less than 451.1lbs.
The second formula is for Pokemon over/equal to 451.1lbs and less than/equal to 677.3lbs.
The third formula is for Pokemon over/equal to 677.4lbs and less than/equal to 903lbs.
The final formula is for Pokemon over 903lbs.

I know it doesn't have to be a certain weight to be caught, I just couldn't think of another way to word the question.... Thanks though :)
