Yes nobody cares if all the aliens die from radiation. Hell that's the POINT.
But I think I WOULD care if I was to die from radiation. Wouldn't you?
It would be one thing if the Poor Man's Rose just was a sure death for
the intended target but the thing was designed to be contagious.
It's a weapon that put it's target in the position of self-quarantine
or risk killing those close to them. It's an indiscriminate murder weapon.

Maybe the last Villian has not showed yet.
But in the begijnn of the Ant Arc there was a Chapter abbout a guy who never shwon up again. (at the moment i dont know his name^^)
When i remember there was a text Panel "No one knows is it look or bad that Gon dont meet him yet" i mean this Guy was also and Ant.
Maybe this guy is appear when the last Arc starts (but i think the last arc is far away)
Or i say it at the post begiinn a new Chara is the Final Villian^^
the final villian will be a zombie
and the creator of nen
I'm pretty sure the final villain will be Gyro, it seems like Togashi flagged that pretty clearly guys. Gyro and Gon both have childhoods of father neglect, the difference is that Ging knew he was not fit to be a father and left, Gyro father instead just used him, you could say that Ging leaving was a kind thing. He knows he would not make a good father, Gyro's father likely knew the same but did not care, only caring to use his son for his own gain. This conflict will put Gyro and Gon's ideals at odds with one another.
I think Gyro is a very good possibility, based on what you've said futurefrog.
Although I've thought of another idea: what if there isn't a final boss that everyone collectively has to beat. Killua and Kurapika have their personal villains/issues, but what if it was like everyone finishes their personal stories. Kurapika and everyone fights the spiders and that ends Kurapika's revenge. Killua has a final showdown with Illumi and helps Gon out with his battles. And then Gon and Gyro face off in a showdown in his own personal story if that develops. Gon, being the protagonist, will have focus on his story, but Kurapika and Killua's will be equally important in the overall story. Leorio will tag along and help out wherever he can (or he'll be studying forever ;_; ).
Honestly, I don't think we'll encounter another villain like Meryem. I just doubt we'll see such an explosion of power again, and I wouldn't want to see that. I want to see smart battles--and HxH has been able to pull that off pretty well so far.
If there's a final villian and he actually has brains he'd have to be say weaker than Gon pre transformation because in HXH it's almost impossible to lose if you're actually stronger and have a brain. Pretty much all the case of the so-called 'smart battles' involve the guy being stronger apparently never heard of the simplest concepts in aura which led to their defeat.
The only way someone who has both power and brain could 'lose' will basically be because they get bored. That was what happened to Pariston, for example, as he literally got bored with carrying out whatever his super evil plan was because it was too easy. But tricks like that you can really only pull once before it gets old.

The way I see it everyone should do their own thing---but they are all tied together.
One thing's for certain: Meryem only won (instead of being at a perpetual stalemate) because of Gungi. If he didn't know about the game and was never tested by Komugi, Meryem would probably be battered for hours on end, probably until he really started to take damage or Netero runs out of gas.
I don't know if there would be a final villain in this manga in the traditional sense...because there's no overarching storyline, but independent arcs...
However I hope that the last villain of the manga and the most epic will be Chrollo...not just because I like the Ryodan, but because I want more insight into that No Man's Land(forgot the name)...

To him fighting Netero is just a game like Gungi, which is why both experiences are relevent. Even without playing Komugi, he already figured out that there's a pattern to each individual. Perhaps without playing against Komugi he wouldn't have met someone who can help him get better at these 'games' so quickly but in the end outcome would not change. As Meryem said, the random kid he killed might have surpassed him in some aspect, but it doesn't matter because his power is at the top of the world. Martial arts is no more a game to Meryem than Gungi. If Meryem wanted to kill Netero, all he has to do is do any massive area effect attack on Netero's position since he obviously can trade any amount of hits with him. Even with all the bogus advantages Netero enjoyed (like able to knockback a guy who he can't even damage) the fight would still be over almost immediately if it was to the death.
The only way to defeat Meryem is in a game, and without Gungi, Meryem could've lost in that particular game against Netero, but he's never been afraid to admit that he might not be the best in the world in every random thing.
I'd like to see the personal villain idea.
Gon vs Hisoka (once Gon finally 'ripens')
Killua vs Illumi (the battle of brothers)
Leorio vs Med School (the battle of neverending study)
Kurapika vs Chrollo (battle of vengeance)
But then again that all is just way too obvious for Togashi, so much so that I know he would never do that.
I think the final villain will be something unexpected to be honest. Togashi never does what anyone thinks.
