I'm calling it Monkey is not the mole at all. He's been framed, if memories can be erased, they most definitely can be created. Monkey is a scapegoat, a red herring, am involuntary sacrifice if you may. Like many have already stated, it's too easy to just end there, but I also think that it's too easy for them to find the REAL mole to begin with. Pariston is easily one of the sharpest characters we've seen, he's also one of the most cautious. For him to just leave a mole like that...
EDIT: It's going to be interesting to see in what way Benjamin will differ from Uvogin, they seem rather similar at the moment.

So it was Dowsing Chain after all. And he did use it to identify the mole within the Zodiacs. I was wondering what he was waiting for in the previous chapters. It was too quick though.
Those Princes are one piece of work after another.
the prince do have a fcked up a family, look forward to seeing how this arc will play out given there are so many factions and parties in this ship.
Ging is only one of the Top 5 most powerful nen users in hxh universe, I am sure the at least 1-2 others will show up in this arc. Could be someone within the prince's faction.
Then who warning about test "lie and hide" for prince's followers?
The Voyage will be really interesting..
So many Intels, and people that hate each other and want each other out of their way...if togashi can really pull this off, this will be one hell of an arc. Im super excited !
Tserreiednich is Lust. Benjamin should be Pride and Tyson should be Envy since Tserreiednich already reasoned that they did not send guards due to arrogance and jealousy. On top of that, it would seem that Benjamin's theme revolves around the lion which almost always corresponds to pride.
On a side note, it would also be nice if Hisoka was part of the Seven Deadly Sins as Wrath. But that idea seems a bit too far-fetched.
There is 14 princes:
Interesting chapter. Did kurapica always have the black and white thing? Perhaps it is a change in his ability? Back in the day it kinda seemed like the dowsing chain just had to move....
Anyways, I wouldn't buy mizai being a mole at this point. On one hand it seems too obvious, on the other it seems incoherent. Mizai has been actively moving against pariston for a while... It would be a trap under a trap under a trap situation. Besides, kurapica would be the first one to notice if there was something amiss with mizai, he is not the trusting type. Mizai is one of the most developed zodiacs, him turning out to be an ally of pariston at this stage would be just plain bad writing no matter how awesome his backstory might be.

Also, in hindsight its not that hard a call that saru is the traitor. Rat has compatibility with ox, dragon and monkey. Dragon is the one that was closest to netero so I doubt it can happen. Ox seems unlikely considering what we have seen. Which leaves rat. Although it is still plausible togashi is trolling us here somehow.
Did I get this right, every single Zodiac member - bar Kurapica and Leorio - revealed his/her abilities to each other?
I don't believe in Monkey being the mole, it's too anticlimatic. Mizai is still my favourite to be the mole.

Kurapika must have made a mistake. Saiyu can't be the mole, he looks so innocent.
Oh togashi, couldn't you have shown me the abilities too instead of only kurapica?
Amazing chapter tho.
In any other manga i'd say 'dude, too many characters, no way in hell that this arc will have good writing', but i still think this will become awesome.
