If you fancy wasting away part of your Valentine's Day then head over to Twitch Plays Pokemon which, thanks to a clever emulator, is enabling thousands of people to input text-based commands to crowd-control Pokemon Red/Blue.

The Twitch Chat can understand basic commands including directions, A, B, Start and Select.

Already live for over a day, the combined force of players has managed to beat the game's first gym.

Yeah, can't imagine it would be that fun to play like that either...

This is really cool, but I think the chances of them beating the game any time soon is very slim. I get the feeling that we'll hear back from this in a months time saying they have just made it to the elite four.
