    Gon's state

    Despite Killua's wish Gon seems to be unable to use Nen. He will obviously find a way to master it again but do you think he will have a new Hatsu? Would you like it to happen or not?

    Re: Gon's state

    I think it would be rather odd for Gon to be anything other than an Enhancer, that much has been made clear. Whether or not he alters his hatsu, or evolves Jajanken, is another matter entirely, and seems completely plausible, it's probably expected to a certain extent.

    Re: Gon's state

    I'd like to see Gon take the path that Netero took before, i.e. focusing on physical training by doing crazy things such as punching 10,000+ times a day, pushing up 10,000+ times a day etc. to unlock his potential/develop new powers. But Togashi will probably give him new Nen abilities though and I probably won't like that 'cause I want him to remain incapable of using Nen for at least 2 arcs to show the heavy consequences of his fight vs Pitou.

    Re: Gon's state

    Is changing his Hatsu type even possible? As far as I remember, it was only mentioned that you can acquire Specialization Hatsu even at a later point if it was not your natural type. And that doesn't mean his hatsu will change, more like he got a new category to manifest, just like a Enhancer using Emission or Materialization (looking at you, Kastro).
    So, by all means, I go with the first option.
    Also, as a point, a special technique is not a Hatsu per-se, but hatsu is also used as a slang for special technique. So the second option may be a little confusing for people who thinks like that... xD <<< talkingabouthimself
    "You can never be certain of any outcome. That is the battle involving nen!
    But even so...
    You fight with 100% confidence that you will win!
    That's the true spirit of a nen-user.
    " - Morau

    Yes your Nen can change later in life but it becomes Specialization, nothing was mentioned about an Enhancer become a Transmuter for example, Manipulators and Conjurers have more chance to become Specialists than the others though. Your Hatsu will inevitably change if you acquire Specialization because it will modify your already performed Hatsu, it doesn't manifest like the 5 others but I never considered something like this could happen I always saw it as a radical change of type.

    Re: Gon's state

    i'm gonna go for option 2, the author propably saw a limiting in the jajanken as in whatever will come out of it later on in advanced stuff will look like an ass-pull so just fabriquate a loss of nen and reformulate so based of preview experience he'll come up with something that leave room for imagination and improvement

    Re: Gon's state

    I hope he stays for a little while without his nen, so at least he can learn how not to be a little self centered brat...
    Sorry, no matter how much you try, you can not ignore yourself.

    He needs a sword embued with all the Nen of his friends to get his Nen back

    Re: Gon's state

    I was thinking about this too. We've pretty much seen the limits of what Jajanken has to offer in my opinion. I think Gon might become Specialization like some of the members have been talking about. I don't think Togashi will completely throw away Jajanken though. Perhaps we'll see it in a new form. If you look back at YYH Yusuke had his trusty spirit gun for the whole series kinda like Goku's kamehameha, Naruto's Rasengan, Oga's Zebul Blast, etc.

    Re: Gon's state

    Gon being able to use nen makes the prior transformation and sacrifice become a mere asspull... like every other shitty manga.

    It will probably be a "start all over" scenario, though.

    Gon starts all over whie killua travels and have fun, when they meet again Gon's managed to catch up and everything is like it was before... meh, super meh.

    Unless Togashi surprises again.

    Considering the severity of the situation he was in, and his resolution to never use nen again, the only satisfactory way (to me) would be if he lost his potential. Hence start over but at a normal growth and will never be as strong as he could have become. (Still shitty and asspully, but at least acceptable)

    It would be better if he just stayed nen-less for a couple arcs.

    well buddy something is for sure this is hunter x hunter not naruto whatever he's got in mind i'm pretty confident gon won't turn into jesus and unlike kishi he's not focused on teenages drama the manga is not focused on 2 kids like naruto does actually i've got a feeling we won't be seeing gon or killua in the next ark

    Re: Gon's state

    I can see a little personality change for Gon. He might not stay as the reckless Kid anymore and starts thinking before moving first.
    That kind of scenario would come close to a change of the Nen-Type.

    Even though its more often Recorded for Manipulators and Conjurers to change to Specialization Type - thats why Specialization is adjacent to them / in the middle of them in the Nen Type Hexagon - its possible for other types too.

    For an Enhancer its probably the rarest of all, if not the first Time ever if it happens to gon. -> Nothing else to expect for the Main char to be the "One of a Million"- clichè.

    But i think its still kind of unlikely (not impossible) because i couldnt see what kind of ability his Specialization would be.
    You Know Specialization can be anything other than the other 5 Nen Types.

    With the water trick to learn the own nen type there is said that if anything else than the 5 basic things happen, it must be Specialization and with that said, that whatever happens might as well give a hint on what your Specialization-Ability might be.

    For Kurapika (In Emperor Time Mode) it must have been that all 5 things happened the same time.

    Water Increase - Enhancer
    Leaf Moving - Manipilaor
    Dirt in the water - Conjurer
    Water changes Taste - Transmuter
    Water changes Color - Emmiter

    Anything else - Specialization

    Also looking for Hisokas Personality check on Nen Types he figures the following:

    Quote Quote:
    Specialists are individualistic and charismatic. They will tell you anything important on them, and refrain from being close friends. But, because of their natural charisma that draws others, they are always surrounded by many people.
    Would that fit Gon?
    I think it could!

    But before making ny further speculation, i am interested in how things will play out.

    Re: Gon's state

    Gon will come back with an improved jajanken. There is no reason for him to develop a new hatsu. Itll be just like when kuwabara lost his spirt sword then camr back with the dimensional spirit sword. Gon might come back with the dimensional jankenmchi.

    Re: Gon's state

    it regards to specialization i think it may have something to do with his healing abilities or the fact he is always refered to as a beast
