Even South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has gotta catch ‘em all.
Haley tweeted a picture of herself catching one of the cartoon monsters in the “Pokemon Go” app Wednesday afternoon.
“Look who I caught in the Governor’s Office!!” Haley tweeted.
“Pokemon Go,” released last week, is an augmented reality smartphone game.
The game has become so popular that it is now the top-downloaded app in Apple’s App Store and is the biggest mobile game in U.S. history.
The game itself requires users to leave their homes and hit the streets in search of Pokemon and other items, like potions, revives, incense and egg incubators at real-world Pokestops.
The game has become a cultural phenomenon.
The photo Haley tweeted shows her catching a Poliwag, which looks like a round blue tadpole for those who aren’t familiar with the Japanese pocket monsters.
But Haley isn’t the only high-profile Pokemon trainer.
North Charleston tweeted a photo of its Mayor Keith Summey catching a Pokemon in his office.
Perhaps Summey lured the Pidgey by crooning about a parking alert.
