Yes, but it takes less than 5 minutes, just power through it. Remember you don't have to go and watch the stupid thing, just make it then leave.
BE CAREFUL with challenge mode. My god, be careful with it. If you aren't the kind to pore over the documentation included with the romhack to theorycraft your way out of every sticky situation, it's going to be rough. The early game is particularly ridiculous in its brutality.
