I think the next arc will be the final arc of Hunter x Hunter.
I call it The Gyro/New Hunter Association Chairman Arc. It will be huge.
Gyro has been referenced a few times in the Chimera Ant Arc so it seems likely that he
will be in the next arc. Since Gyro seems to be hyped even more than the Chimera Ant
King I would say he's a pretty fair contender for the final villain of Hunter x Hunter.
The Vice Chairman has been talked about a few times in the Chimera Ant Arc as well
and it looks like those who follow Netero were not too fond of the Vice Chairman and
actually seem to suspect him. Morel even thought that the Vice Chairman was plotting
for the mission to fail so that he would replace Netero as Chairman of the Hunter
Association. With Netero dead and the Vice Chairman to become the new chairman
of the Hunter Association it looks like Morel had reasons to worry.
Someone had an interesting theory about the Rose Bomb Poison. Since it seems
to be highly contagious and has spread to the King, Pouf and Youpi, it is possible
that Pouf had spread the poison to all the people in the sorting. Meaning they are dead.
A good number of people will have died and the blame will fall on Netero.
There will be a civil war within the Hunter Association between the followers of Netero
and the followers of the new Chairman. This civil war will involve ALL the hunters
including the famed 3 star hunter. It will be an all out battle. And a worldwide hunt.
At the same time there will be a war against Gyro who's trying to spread evil worldwide.
Gon will have lost his nen powers. Killua will be protecting him along with
Kurapica and Leorio who will return to the series. Leorio will be an exceptional doctor.
Kurapica will have improved his normal nen abilities considerably but will not be at
Gon or Killua's level. Still he will be better. Since Gon gave up his powers he will
not be able to get his powers back with an exorcist. Killua, Kurapica and Leorio
will then escort Gon to see his father Ging Freaks. It will seem impossible until
Gon decides to go alone. At that point Gon will meet Ging. His prize for finding Ging
will be Ging's own powers transferred to Gon. Gon will use this power to defeat Gyro.
For whatever reason Gon will be targeted by the Hunter Association (it may have to do with them not wanting Gon to meet Ging. Perhaps Ging knows something that Hunter Association doesn't want Gon to know. Since Gon wants to find Ging, Gon will then
be a threat to finding out what they don't want Gon to know) Or perhaps Gyro.
Maybe both. But in any case assassins will be hired. You know who that means. Yes,
Zoldycks. Silva Zoldyck will be hired to kill Gon. Killua will then have to fight his own
father to protect Gon. Even though Killua may have been joking when he said he
would take the bounty on his own dad's head I think it will ironically become true.
As one theory goes, the Chimera Ants are actually a prototype biological weapon
I think they were made by the Hunter Association specifically the vice chairman.
The whole Chimera Ant arc will be revealed to be testing out the prototype.
It's possible that the Vice Chairman will try to kill off all the Hunters in the
palace to leave no evidence of it happening. Yet another reason why Gon
will be targeted by the Hunter Association.
Gyro will be the creator or at least financier of the Rose Bomb and of the D1 drug.
I suspect there will be a secret connection between Gyro and the Vice Chairman.
Basically we will see all the Hunters still living duke it out in the ultimate hunt for another.
The I guy above me has a nice theory.
I see about three+ more arcs possibilities are endless but I don't see Gon meeting his father until he's around twenty years old or something. Hell Gon could never meet his father and he ends up just finding his grave after all that time.
Recovery arc for Gon- I see this lasting a while. 30+ give or take.
Hisoka vs Kuroro that's another possibility
Jairo Arc-A lot of big things will happen here as how it will connect to ging and everything else is beyond me.
But this arc seems like a set up for a timeskip actually. I'm most likely wrong but what I've learned from Togashi's work he usually does timeskips when the main character gets stuck at a crossroad at what to do with his or her life.
Timeskips could be possible because Togashi used it much with Yu Yu hakusho, after an arc is done, to signify some changes with the characters too mundane or repetitive to be shown. But this reminds me too much about Slamdunk. If I remember correctly Sakuragi got injured right? He was out of commission for a long time even after that one last important game he was in, although he was certainly being rehabilitated. But yeah, Slamdunk doesn't have nen, so we could avoid a "rehab arc".
And the problem with Gyro becoming the new boss is that he's probably very weak. Remember they were destroyed by grunt chimera ants. Grunts. If Gyro wasn't strong enough to kill all the ants by himself I doubt he will participate in any high-level battles. Plus if Gyro is Meleoron I think he would just clean up his act and become King of NGL and East Goruto with Werefin and the others.

Gyro was killed by Chimera Ant grunts when he was still human. He's likely a lot stronger now.
However I think he will be weaker than the King but more devious.
If he's not Meleoron then he will be like Meleroron in which he'll have a very sneaky ability.
Besides that a sneaky villain would be more interesting for the final arc and for Gyro.
While the Chimera Ant Arc is great. The next arc should be fall of tricks and traps.
It should make the Hunter Exam seem like a breeze when it comes to deceitfulness.
Well, as was mention I see two possibilities to happen right now and simultaneously: Gon Recover + Hunter Association Issue. It's a great way to introduce some users of Nen that may be able to know a way to fix him or to help him at least.
However, I doubt Jairo appears right now. I think He's a long term enemy yet to be discovered and it was said that he was a patient man so I'm expecting him first to take his time to build whatever He needs to build.
