Chrollo has access to Black Voice in his book, which most certainly means he had managed to steal it from Shalnark. The nature of Chrollo's book would have robbed Shalnark of not only his abilities, but all his means to use nen. Why would Chrollo do such a thing to someone he treats as his friend? Because the Phantom Troupe still has access to Abengane, or at least his curse-removal powers (as it's also possible Chrollo subsequently stole these powers and put them in his book). Since Abengane was able to cure Chrollo of Kurapika's curse, which blocked his ability to use nen, logically he could do the same to Shalnark, as Chrollo's curse would have the very same effect on him. The result is that both of them can use Black Voice. It is possible that Chrollo can use two receivers because the second one was lent from Shalnark.

Shalnark--he cannot ''use'' the second one, and he was clearly treating it as a bluff to make Hisoka nervous.

[[WMG: Kurapika will have to choose between revenge and protecting his client.]]
Given the fact that this is the last pair of Scarlet Eyes that needs to be recovered, a significant roadblock is sure to show up. In the end, Kurapika will be forced into a situation where he can only choose one - his target and the man who owns them, or the defenseless Prince Woble. Bonus points if it crosses over with the theory above re: Pairo's head, making the choice over the only thing that remains of his dearest friend or the life of an innocent infant more agonizing.

** The use of "nanika" is likely coincidental, seeing as despite being used as a name for the character Nanika the word is literally Japanese for "something". It being in quotes isn't even necessarily the case either - the Japanese equivalent to quotation marks are a kind of bracket, but they're also used the way English uses italics and it's up to context to figure out which applies. In this case, it seems more like the brackets are being used to accentuate the word, not to give an implication of something else.

Specifically, the man in the business suit and short mustache seen for one panel in which Kurapika fails him for outright lying. Why do I think he'll be important? It may sound crazy, but it's because he resembles [[Film/TheAddamsFamily Gomez Addams]]. This is because there has been a series of characters in ''Hunter X Hunter'' who look like main characters from ''The Addams Family'', in particular the [[WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily Hanna-Barbera cartoon]], all of which have had plot significance. In order of how certain I am of them being based on ''The Addams Family'' characters:

* Kortopi -> Cousin It
* Geru -> Morticia
* Franklin -> Lurch [[note]](Franklin is based primarily on FrankensteinsMonster, but Franklin also has Lurch's hunched-over stance and tired expression)[[/note]]
* Shoot's floating hands -> Thing
* Palm -> Wednesday
Or maybe it's all one massive coincidence. But it's fun for me to hope.

* Kurapika explicitly starts wearing colored contacts from the Yorkshin arc onward, which explains the different colors.

* It's strongly implied that Greed Island was created for the sole purpose of training Gon. If this is the case, the pregnancy stones would not have existed until Gon had been born, since they're an in-game item.

We already know that Togashi uses Gon as a {{Deconstruction}} of typical "live by their own code", super energetic, "win them over by talking" shounen main characters like Naruto. The manga shows in great depth how actually being that kind of character is far stranger than most shounen like to make it seem and ultimately suggests that someone like that is a person to be afraid of because of their high unpredictable. However, the Chimera Ant arc made it brutally clear that a character like this is destined to be their own demise. Gon, like many shounen leads, has a lot of potential and gets stronger by fighting people that are stronger than him. Typically this leads to a [[NextTierPowerUp power]] [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands upgrade]] of some sort in battle which allows the main character to defeat their adversary. However, in the Hunter X Hunter universe, that does not work. Gon wins his major "fight" with Hanzo only because Hanzo forfeits. When it actually comes to fighting people who are significantly stronger than him, in an actual fight Gon would most likely lose due to his lack of experience and training. The one time Gon wins, Ging later explains, is because he in a rage unknowingly makes a Nen conditional that allows him to fully tap into his potential [[DeadlyUpgrade at the cost of almost his life and all of his Nen capabilities.]] Gon's rage and blind desire to get stronger regardless of the consequences is just that: blind and uninformed.

ultimately a one way ticket to getting good and dead at an accelerated rate.
