One day, people in Ohio could tell their grandchildren how they caught a Mewtwo while supporting presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s campaign has announced a “Gotta Catch ‘Em All” event for Lakewood, Ohio, this Saturday. The nominee is inviting supporters, families, and kids to join the former Secretary of State’s official campaign at the Madison Park PokéStop in Lakewood. The campaign plans to put some lures into the location, which is one of the ways to attract the digital monsters in the GPS-powered location-based game that populates the real-world with the virtual creatures. Pokémon Go is one of the biggest phenomenons in gaming history, and it is currently the top-grossing app in several key markets of the $36.9 billion mobile-gaming industry.

What about 33-year-old men who will show up alone with their phone held high and Pokémon Go running at all times? Are they welcome? Asking for a friend.
