|A Heavy Ball is a Poké Ball ideal for catching very heavy Pokémon.
Unlike most Poké Balls, the Heavy Ball's catch rate modifier is additive rather than multiplicative.
The catch rate modifier for Heavy Balls based on Pokémon weight is as follows:
- -20 ← 99.9 kg or less (<220.2 lbs.)
- ±0 ← 100 kg (220.5 lbs.) - 199.9 kg (440.7 lbs)
- +20 ← 200 kg (440.9 lbs.) - 299.9 kg (661.2 lbs.)
- +30 ← 300 kg or more (>661.4 lbs.)
It can be obtained as a Pokéloot/Beastloot special drop, as random loot from Structures, and as random drop from a Team Rocket Grunt NPC.
It can also be crafted using the following recipe:
