It is only easy if you abuse the mechanics or only use the starter

I mean, from a balance perspective, the abundance of OP mechanics and the little-to-no limitation that is put on the player for using them is exactly why these games are so easy. You can make any game harder with self-imposed challenges, but that's not the point, really.

I mean, I consider this game to be on the bad side and I couldn't care less about Smash, but you might be right for others.

This game is harder than the original R/B.

Yellow is only harder because of Brock.

Not really. You can catch Mankey west of Viridian and it learns Low Kick at 9. Alternately, you can catch either of the Nidorans (which learn Double Kick at 12 or 14 in Yellow), or tried and true Caterpie which evolves to Butterfree at 10 and learns Confusion at 12.
Got a minute? You might learn something.

Thats you, thats how you sound.

Also no pokemon game has ever been hard but this one is definitely the not hardest of them.

Yeah but most of these are obscure and/or require grinding of some sort. I never saw a mankey there when I was a kid. Why would kids think raising a bug or poison type would help against rocks?

This game puts Oddish on route 1 and tells you to catch it.

If time is to change... let it change. If the world is to be destroyed... so be it. If it is my fate to die... I must simply laugh.

Mankey is on an optional Route but it's far from rare and Caterpie is literally the first time a huge chunk of first time players are likely to experience evolution, and evolving so quick means that Butterfree is not out of the question and doesn't require grinding.

.. So this game makes that match-up easier, is what you're saying.
