During the Chimera Ants Arc, after Gon fights with Neferpitou,

Gon lost his Nen.

Will he be able to fight and continue advancing within the Hunter x Hunter Universe?

  • what particular part of the series are you referring to? – кяαzєя May 14 '15 at 10:31
  • I suggest picking up the manga, it would answer your question. – Denslat May 14 '15 at 11:28
  • hopefully with alluka reviving him from that state it also cured him of the condition of never using nen again – user18948 Nov 7 '15 at 3:03

Without nen, Gon won't be able to fight against Nen users. As was seen in the Heaven's Arena arc, the only way to defend against Nen is with Nen, and without it even relatively weak attacks will kill or cripple you.

At the moment, the story is on an indefinite hiatus, but if it ever gets going properly again, Gon will not be able to fight against Nen users unless somehow he is able to regain his Nen, whether by himself or by someone helping him.

It's obviously a different story, but I think it's similar to how after Ichigo lost his spiritual pressure in Bleach, he was pretty weak for a while until it was restored to him.

Alluka was able to save Gon, and it's definitely possible that either some Hunter has the capability to restore Gon's Nen, or that somewhere in the Dark Continent there will be a way of restoring it.

  • Did the manga specifically say that Gon couldn't relearn nen after he had lost it? If so, although it would set him back, he could regain his power. Just a thought. – eha1234 May 15 '15 at 14:53

If you think about it deeply, Gon really didn't lose his Nen per se. He just lost the ability to "use" it. Remember what Killua wished for? He wished Gon to return back to normal. But what is normal?

It is heavily implied that Gon's Nen pores are just back to normal again. Even his dad had said, that he became "normal" and whether he wants to or not is up to him.

Gon just has to re-learn Nen again, the way Wing forcefully opened his Nen pores or the natural way.

The main problem here is the wish. That aura spread too far and that wish is too powerful. I wonder who's gonna suffer.... ;)

I think Gon will end up tracking down and joining the Phantom Troupe in order to regain the ability to use nen again. Also his nen category will probably change in the process. He may end up becoming a Conjurer or a Specialist.
