Together with Biscuit and Killua, Gon will learn to shape his abilities to their traits. Against all odds, the trio finally completes the game. Gon then claims the right to choose the artifacts that he needs to reunite with his father. He also aims at becoming the greater hunter ever in the process.
With the help of Biscuit, Gon and Killua train their Nen and learn to shape their abilities to their traits.
