With November just around the corner and the fight for Westeros the White House kicking into high gear, presumptive nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are doing their best to secure that very important millennial vote by any means necessary—including hopping on the Pokémon Go bandwagon. Presumably listening to their well-informed interns, both named-dropped the widely popular mobile app this week while forging ahead on their campaign trails.

On Thursday, Trump’s team sent out an attack ad stylizing Clinton as a Pokémon named "Crooked Hillary" who is "often found lying to the American people, rigging the system, and sharing TOP SECRET emails," the Hillreported. In the video, her next evolution is described as "unemployed."

While speaking to her supporters at a rally in Annandale, Va., Clinton took the opportunity to briefly mention the game that is apparently more popular than Tinder right now. "I don't know who created Pokémon Go, but I'm trying to figure out how to get them to have Pokémon Go to the Polls," she told the crowd.

Taking things a step further, Clinton’s camp even organized a meetup to take place this Saturday at a Pokéstop in Lakewood, Ohio—conveniently close to where next week’s Republican National Convention will be held, according to the Hill. "Join us as we go to the Pokéstop in Madison Park and put up a lure module, get free Pokémon, & battle each other while you register voters and learn more about Sec. Hillary Clinton!!!" her campaign’s website read.

Same, Pikachu.
