    On the surface, Pariston doesn't seem like much of a fighter. I don't remember him ever engaging in an actual battle with anyone, and Ging and Pariston himself even say that he isn't that strong.

    However, I don't think that this is all there is to it. First of all, Pariston is a Triple Star Hunter and was impressive enough to be put into high positions by both Netero and Beyond Netero, and I doubt those two of all people would have selected Pariston solely based off his intelligence. Also, if I recall correctly, Ging only says that Pariston is physically weak, which doesn't at all mean that he is an ineffective fighter. Pariston downplays his own abilities, but that just fits in with his character. Pariston isn't the type to boast about his strength and is much more likely to try and convince people that he is weak so that he has the upper hand in case he actually needs his strength. Finally, when Ging threatens to kill Pariston, Pariston doesn't seem bothered at all, which may indicate that his more powerful than he lets on.

    He's probably not fodder but also not a high tier

    I have to think that Pariston is at least around High Genei Ryodan level. You don't take things that easily in a series like Hunter x Hunter unless you can hang with almost any character in the series. So it wouldn't even surprise me if Pariston is top tier. A confrontation between Hisoka and Pariston would be amazing.

    Stronger than Pokkle, weaker than Ging.

    Seriously, he could be pretty much anywhere in power and still work as a villain.

    Though if I were a betting man... I'd bet on him being as strong as, say, a Meleoron of sorts. Except with a uber powerful hatsu. (Like Meleoron's except it doesn't rely on the power of others to be dangerous.)

    Going by Hisoka's description of categories and personalities, he may be a specialist or a Transmuter. I'd bet on manipulator though. Something like a brutal form of mind control, or a genjutsu mental torture of sorts? Who knows.

    Pretty much this.

    Pariston is the kind of guy that would brag about his own weakness with a smile on his face. He's weak in combat, but with a very powerful or useful ability, like Meleoron's. That's my impression of him.

    He'd be a much more interesting villain if he actually is weak.

    Weak as fuck with a twisted hatsu that could kill anyone in the world provided they don't actually try to kill Pariston physically.

    I have a feeling that Pariston will kill Ging.

    It'd be cool if both Pariston and Hisoka were involved in Ging's death. It could be a reason and give meaning as to why Gon has to fight Hisoka if there is a final fight between them.

    physically, he's prolly weak as hell, to the point where one good hit will beat him (tho he seems like he's agile enough to dodge).
    Nen wise, he prolly has a very dangerous power.

    Fighting Hisoka doesn't need a reason though,because it's Hisoka. If Gon is strong enough, Hisoka will bug him until he agrees to fight.

    More importantly, it will feel deja vu and out of character to have Gon go through another dark vengeful phase. Kite‘s death is a maturation process for Gon. He doesn't need another one. As he told his aunt, Ging doesn't feel like a father to him, but more like a famous relative. Gon will grieve of course if Ging dies in dark continent, but I think he won't seek revenge because he understands Ging is prepared to die doing what he enjoys.

    I think togashi has given many hints that he's top tier. Just by witnessing Pariston's character you get this hunch that he's not one to fuck with.

    He's def up there with the strongest

    there's no way he isn't a nen master on par with ging. may not necessarily have hugely combat-centric hatsu, but he'll be dangerous.
