Gon tries to come up with a plan to take Hisoka's plate. While wandering around the island, he witnesses a real hunt between two examinees. Pokkle is seen stalking his target, Kyu, and tries to attack him using his arrow and bow. Kyu dodges the arrow, but it grazes him. Kyu collapses on the ground, paralyzed by the arrow's poison. Pokkle says that he will be paralyzed for a whole week, then he takes his plate.
Gon begins to train himself to prepare for Hisoka. Using his fishing rod, he will try to get Hisoka's plate number. He practices on a stationary target with ease, but there is one problem: Hisoka moves. If he can't focus on a moving target then he will fail. Next, he tries a swinging target back and forth. Gon catches it easily, but he is still unsatisfied, because he must also consider a real target's reaction to his attack. He then tries to catch a flying bird, which proves to be quite difficult for him. As he observes the bird catching a fish, he strikes to take it out. He realizes that when Hisoka tries to catch his own prey, it will be the best time to steal his plate number.
