(But for the scale of hobby project that I undertake this would be overkill: far simpler to work with small manageable modules directly on the RPi itself... )
Some might consider the longer compilation times on a Pi compared to a high end x86 PC to be an issue and a reason for cross development, but of course that doesn't apply to Python.
You will almost certainly spend far more time setting all this up than simply working on the Pi itself.
There is the Thonny IDE by the way.

Even an underclocked Pi Zero can easily edit Python source code!
.. and I (personally) would regard the new Pi3B+ model as a "strong" machine.
