In brief: Most likely
A good strategy for increased fertility in pcos patients with excess body weight is to lose a little bit of that weight while possibly simultaneously undergoing medical strategies.
It's possible to get pregnant doing just one or just the other, but combined is usually better.

In brief: If overweight, yes
Assuming anovulation (having irregular menstrual cycles) due to pcos is the cause for infertility, losing as little as 5% of one's body weight in the presence of obesity may trigger regular ovulatory cycles, thus improving one's chances of conceiving.
