They're running out of things to study :P
And for some reason they all study empty Pokédexes as well.

I mean, I spent hours in the previous generations filling that damn thing up and even now it's STILL empty when you get one...
Pokedexs are just plot devices to get you on an adventure. Cheren actually said that Juniper didn't give you a Pokedex to fill it up, but to travel, so it's canon.

I'm 100% convinced that Sycamore only sent you on a journey so he could find an excuse to lounge around in cafes all day with the pretext of meeting you to discuss your Pokedex and his man-crush on Lysandre.
