Two months have passed since Gon broke his arm in his first Nen fight. Under Wing's tutelage, Gon and Killua have been learning the basic techniques of Nen at a rapid pace. Seeing them as beginners, and thus easy wins, the trio of Gido, Riehlvelt, and Sadaso attempts to pressure the boys into more fights. They abduct Zushi to force Gon and Killua into registering matches, confident of victory, but each experiences an upset when confronted with Gon and Killua's natural abilities.
Seeing Gon's victory, Hisoka agrees to a tower match with Gon. Within a month, they face each other on the 200th floor. Initially, Gon is not even able to force Hisoka to move a single step. Changing his tactics, Gon is able to land a solid punch on Hisoka's face with a series of feints. Hisoka simply smiles and meets Gon in the center of the ring, where he accepts the return of his Hunter Exam #44 badge, much to the confusion of all the spectators. The rest of the match goes by quickly, with Hisoka utterly dominating the fight. Satisfied with Gon's progress, Hisoka declares the next time they fight will be in the real world, with their lives on the line.
