In my opinion, I believe Uvogin has been the strongest enhancer we have seen in the story, and the strongest enhancer we will probably ever see..
As many of you may know, Gon is also an enhancer. Personally, I think Uvogin was meant to not only serve as a way to illustrate Kurapika's new powers, but also to layout the potential power Gon will have in the future. I think Gon will learn how to be as strong, or perhaps even stronger than Uvogin during the Dark continent arc.
I don't think he will be the strongest of the story, Gon will . Uvo is just the proof that Enhancement attacks are overkill, there is surely an Enhancer among the Zodiacs too. Potential-wise, Gon is a genius. Uvo was good but he was only focused on Enhancement. As Biscuit said, it's better to master well the 2 categories near to your own as well.
I see Gon more like Phinks but Gon has more versatility than him.
Dude, YES! I always thought like that. Uvo is like an evil more powerful version of Gon.
Not only do they have a similar fighting style and Nen, they both also have extremely similar personalities(I think even Nobunaga and Franklin noted so). They are both prideful, selfish at times, wild, unpredictable and power hungry. Plus, they both fight best when there is someone to protect.
I imagine Gon being a good(and less badass) version of Uvo at the end of the Manga.
Overkill is a good way to describe Ubogin, and overkill is pretty pointless in HXH. As Machi pointed out, if the guy with the biting attack had deadly poison instead of paralyzing poison then Ubogin would've died immediately and that's that. HXH has a rather ridiculous balance of power. On one hand Reinforcement never loses, but on the other hand you can always win if you a some poisoned weapon on your side (assuming you're able to wound the other guy, but if you can't then you're just hopelessly outclassed anyway). You'd think a typical battle in HXH would involve 2 guys in a gas mask throwing poison grenades at each other, because that's a lot more effective than any crazy power you could possibly develop, but of course that's not what actually happens.
I feel like that's too much of a simplification and frankly Gon's smarter than Uvo. I don't think it's absolutley impossible given what we saw when Gon forcibly aged himself but otherwise... I think it'll be something else.
i wouldn't mind seeing Gon on Uvogin's enhancer ability level but with a tinge of a second category, in order to differentiate the two.

I don't think uvo can beat even palm and gon is probably stronger than him as of now. Not to mention transformed gon.
Another thing that is interesting, Uvogin used his roar(sound) to attack the shadow beasts, and Gon used the same tactic (roar/sound) in his fight with the bat and owl chimera ants. Definitely not a coincidence!
As shown Lv1 Study and practice was quite simple and the exercise pertained to the type of nen. However Killua was better at Gon than Enhancement lv1 training. In the long run Gon would be able to achieve higher levels and be much better for he can use it 100% while Killua is stuck at 80%.
With this in mind Uvo BBI attack ain't no Lv5 Enhancement training....Nor is Netero's Emission Buhdda Statue any low lv training number...The fact Netero gained the kind of power he did and wasn't the strongest nen user anymoree, shows that there isn't a Cap on the Level, just the natural % everybody is limited to..
But An Enhancer Gon's level isn't going to fair well again'st somebody like Uvo.......
With his Enhancement mastery, Uvo could easily achieve level 5 Enhancement's task IMO but I am not sure for the 2 other categories.
Imho , Uvo is more like a showcase on how enhancement can become later. I don't think its related that much to gon's futur.
There's indeed somes similarites. The sound roar is a good example.
Uvo used it only for killing the beast with thoses hair shield.
Gon its a bit different, for the bat fight he mostly used common sense. Gon passed a lot of his childood in a forest or whatever. Increased his knowledge about that a lot and used sound against the bat.
Uvo died way to early in my opinion, its hard to know his "real strenght" the beast fight was merely a joke for him, and Kurapika is overpowered against the genei ryodan.
I see more Nobunaga mixed a bit with Phinx , than Uvogin as gon'shadow.
