Thanks. I still want to know if a lot of other people have done it. Or is it normal?

Catching a Pokemon has nothing to do with the Pokemon what so ever. It just takes a bunch of factors, and rolls a dice corresponding to those factors. I could probably catch an Arceus in a Pokeball even if it had 31 IVs in everything, but it would take me forever.

I think the question you meant to ask was "Was Palkia easy to capture?", and my answer is "Yes." A lot of people say Dialga/Palkia were pretty easy to catch, so I'm not too suprised that you caught it with a Pokeball. Congrats on your catch!

No. Only the species changes the capture rate, not the stats or level or anything else. Palkia and Dialga may be tied with Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-oh, Rayquaza and Giratina for second strongest species stat wise, but it has nothing to do with whether they will break a ball or not. Each species has a number that is put into the catch formula, called the species' catch rate. Dialga and Palkia's catch rate are both 30, making them the easiest caught legendaries (I'm pretty sure). Mantyke has a catch rate of 25, making it harder to catch then Palkia, and Mantyke is a weakling stat wise. Beldum has a catch rate of 3, making it ten times harder to catch than Palkia, whereas Palkia is more than twice as strong as Beldum stat wise. Your Palkia is fine, as catching one with low health and paralysis with a PokeBall is not very hard.

Well after reading your post I get a feeling as if you think that catching Palkia is harder than catching Dialga and thats not true they have the same catch rate. Besides this the strength of a pokemon is not determined by the ball, so it doesn't matter with which ball you capture a pokemon.

Dialga/Palkia has an easy catching rate, so that explains why you were able to get it with a regular Pokeball.

My poor sister wasted her Master Ball on it.

It has a catch rate of 30 so it is easy to catch. No need to worry about it being weak, It's catch rate is low. My Japanese Dialga is in a PokeBall.
