The Seattle Seahawks have gone public with their love of long-running Nintendo series Pokémon.

WR Doug Baldwin tweeted out that he had traded a Pikachu for a Charizard on Tuesday, prompting his teammate Richard Sherman to chime in on what seemed like a lopsided deal. Whether their shared love of the game dates back to their days together at Stanford, or if they picked up the game due to their proximity to the Nintendo owned Seattle Mariners, is unknown.
