Finally mastered this game. I believe I am the 383rd person to do so on this version and I finished with a 55:47 in-game time (mostly speed-up on emulator). Overall, this was a much easier set than Red/Blue although the "That's Shocking!", "Gotta Catch 'em All - Yellow" and "Going All the Way" achievements took far more effort than everything else. None of the optional achievements were very difficult if you prepared for them.
