Just like some of us did on our GameBoys when we were kids, players roam the world in search of these colourful creatures in a quest to “catch ‘em all”. But this time, players aren’t engaging with a screen and using only their fingers and thumbs. The CBC has a good description of the craze, and what it amounts to is that players are getting out into the real world, using their feet and legs to walk or cycle their towns and cities, capturing Pokemon that might be around the corner, or in the next block.

Return to top Report summary. What comes after Generation Z? Introducing Generation Alpha. Gen Zeds are the most formally educated generation in Australian history – not only have they started their schooling younger, they are also projected to stay in it for longer. Whilst 1 in 10 of the Builders generation have a university degree, 1 in 5 Baby Boomers, 1 in 4 Generation Xers and 1 in 3 Gen Ys, it is projected that 1 in 2 Gen Zeds will be university educated. With the increased focus on formal education and the increased time spent behind screens and on digital devices, it is unsurprising that they live largely indoors; after all, their parents place priority on homework, coaching and extra-curricular activities over a carefree childhood.

These sedentary lifestyles are having an impact on our Gen Zeds – based on the current trends, it is projected that in 2027, when all Gen Z have reached adulthood, 77.9% of males and 61.2% of females will be overweight or obese. The Zeds are up-ageing because they are growing up faster.
