Pokemon Yellow is like the most brutal speedrun in the series

At least due to the amount of resets you must do
Whereas every other game has you do starter stat resets that don't take too long, you need to reset for a Lv.6 Nidoran Male 7-8 minutes in because Pikachu is an awful starter. And yes, a male. Females don't get Horn Attack or Thrash and have lower attack. Bad bad bad. Then you have a ridiculous final battle consisting of using X-Special to raise your defense to survive Earthquake. And yes, you did just read that. That's how fucked Gen 1 is.
Case in point: werster has been 24-hour marathoning, mostly playing Yellow, and has still not gotten a run beyond...I dunno. Furthest I've seen was Misty. Shit is bad, though.
