That doesn't make any sense either, the only way to have a good chance of catching a Scyther or Pinsir in the contest is to knock their HP down and use status conditions. In fact, I've read that this is actually recommended. So I think you're incorrect.If you hurt it or gave it a status condition that would take away from it placing. As far as I remember though.
I'm still guessing that it's completely random chance and that no Pokemon actually has a higher value than others.
