The title says it all. Plus, to help people to figure out what Pokemon to catch with the Heavy Ball if one of these Pokemon is in their game. ;-)

Similar questions (Linked below) have been asked before, although I'm not sure if they make this question against the rules, as those questions ask for just the heaviest Pokemon, and this question asks for the ten heaviest Pokemon. Also, some of those questions are outdated. I'll go ahead and flag this for moderator attention.
Ok sure, no problem, I'm a stickler for the rules, unless I don't know they exist. ;-p
It's just that when I typed in the title, it didn't show me the questions you listed, so I assumed it wasn't asked yet.

Primal Groudon is the 2nd heaviest and weighs 2,204.0 lbs.

Eternatus and Groudon is the 3rd heaviest and weighs 2,094.4 lbs.

Mega Metagross is the 4th heaviest and weighs 2,078.7 lbs.

Mudsdale is the 5th heaviest and weighs 2,028.3 lbs.

Guzzlord is the 6th heaviest and weighs 1,957.7 lbs.

Stakataka is the 7th heaviest and weighs 1,807.8 lbs.

Melmetal is the 8th heaviest and weighs 1,763.7 lbs.

Zamazenta is the 9th heaviest and weighs 1,730.6 lbs.

Altered Forme Giratina is the 10th heaviest and weighs 1,653.5 lbs.

Mega Steelix is the 11th heaviest and weighs 1,631.4 lbs.

Dialga is the 12th heaviest and weighs 1,505.8 lbs.

Copperajah and Orign Forme Giratina is the 13th heaviest and weighs 1,433.0 lbs.

Zygarde Complete Forme is the 14th heaviest and weighs 1,344.8 lbs.

Metagross is the 15th heaviest and weighs 1,212.5 lbs.

Stonjourner is the 16th heaviest and weighs 1,146.4 lbs.

Avalugg is the 17th heaviest and weighs 1,113.3 lbs.

Hoopa Unbound is the 18th heaviest and weighs 1,080.3 lbs.

Dusk Mane Necrozma and Snorlax is the 19th heaviest and weighs 1,014.1 lbs.

Heatran and Primal Kyogre is the 20th heaviest and weighs 948.0 lbs.

For the Heavy Ball, here are the modifiers for SM:

-20 if used on Pokémon weighing at most 220.2 lbs.
No modifier if used on Pokémon weighing between 220.5 lbs and 440.7 lbs.
+20 if used on Pokémon weighing between 440.9 lbs. and 661.2 lbs.
+30 if used on Pokémon weighing at least 661.4 lbs.

(So, if you use a heavy ball on one of these Pokémon listed above, there is a great chance that it'll go in it.)

Surprising how Cosmoem is so heavy. Maybe because of its relation to black holes? Either way, thanks a lot!
Actually, it is based on a protostar, which has so much mass in such a confined space. Guzzlord is the one based on blackholes.
Actually, the tenth place will be beaten by a new Pokemon named Melmetal, appearing in lets go games, with a weight of 1,763.7 lbs.
Right, now Melmetal would be 7th, and Giratina Altered would be 8th, Mega Steelix would be 9th, and Dialga would be 10th.
Kilograms are obviously the superior mass unit.

Technically, an Aggron with Heavy Metal should have a weight of 1587.4 lbs. But this is only in battle.
Also, Gen 8 has a new Pokémon, Copperajah, which has a base weight of 1433 lbs, which gets doubled to 2866 lbs with the ability Heavy Metal!
