Seriously who cares, in-game is soooo easy and breeding specifically to try and beat the game is not necessary at all. Honestly just having a team of 6 alone is probably overkill, I'm used to reaching the end game with four battlers and two permanent HM slaves.
RPGs are notorious for being the slowest games in existence, and slowness + ease = unenjoyable. I try at least to make the game a little challenging.
Also I do think that my knowledge of the mechanics makes the in-game significantly easier.
