OU isn't necessarily easier, it's that it's the most played metagame and you're going to see many of the same threats over and over again, so it becomes easier to see them coming. It's just like if you were to play UU or Ubers or NU or RU or BL2 or whatever other tiers have come into existence, you would think after a while of getting really good at it, "man, this tier is easy, I know all the threats I'm facing." Eventually, Pokemon boils down to knowing common threats and being prepared for the big ones, also good educated guessing (often referred to as prediction). OU isn't any easier than the other tiers, it's just the most played and most seen tier.

Also, that being said, Little Cup is pretty easy once you get the hang of it, pretty much just tons of offense. It's also cute!
