The Hillary Clinton campaign has jumped on the popularity of Pokemon Go with the candidate making a joke involving the game Thursday, while the Ohio game is using the app to find voters.

Clinton attempted a joke involving the game, saying, “I don’t know who created Pokemon Go. But I’m trying to figure out how we get to them Pokemon Go-to the polls.”


Her campaign as well is using the game to register voters in Ohio. A campaign event description in Ohio says, “join us as we go to the Pokestop in Madison Park and put up a lure module, get free pokemon, & battle each other while you register voters and learn more about Sec. Hillary Clinton!!! Kids welcome!”

Millions of people have downloaded the Pokemon Go App on their phone since the game was launched last week.
