    So I wondered: How will Oda do it? Another timeskip? A Strawhat training session? Or am I underestimating Luffy or overestimating Yonkou? I don't know.
    no if u think in part 1 Crocodile was members of strong team who were boss of sea and now Yonkou r boss of sea so u cant say he will just got defeat easily. i m not saying he is as strong as yonkou just like he was not as strong as Crocodile when he defeat him . that time he got Crocodile's weakness and with his willpower he defeat Crocodile. just like that he can defeat yonkou and its not like he is going to fight yonkou right now he may fight yonkou after 2-3 arcs and in that time he will become more powerful and will get friend who will help him to defeat yonkou

    Hah, to tell the truth the pattern is exactly the same.
    1) He enter new region and after a couple of deadly fights defeat the mighty Shichibukai, The Crocodile! Who is two heads above Luffy in terms of strenghts. (DD right now)
    2) He proceed further and at some point confront top secret overpowered zoan type fighter Rob Lucci who is even more powerfull than Luffy and after another deadly fight (with newly discowered gear third) He barely win this fight. (Kaido gonna be new zoan-type enemy)

    What will happen in fight with DD? Luffy wil barely defeat him with all we'v seen so far.
    And what will happen when he fight Kaido? Well i realy hope it is gonna be the long waited gear 4.
    Luffy getting stronger after each enemy he face, he learned gear 2 after a short scrim with CP and he invented gear 3 after short meeting with Aokiji. And now he got full 2 years of trainigs behind his back, i am pretty sure he can deal with Yonkou, he just need an allias to fight his army (fishmans for bigmum, and someone for Kaido). So i doubt any timescips (more then a week) will happen.

    Re: Second Time Skip in New World

    Nice idea for thread. I expect same thing- second time skip- after few more arcs so to say.
    Luffy, Zoro and Sanji seems to be on par with very strong Vice Admirals now so its not enough for Luffy to become Pirate King.
    Part of story that we see now will be amazing because Oda choosen training time skip to be 2 years long so its not long enough for Strawhats crew to get on par with any of Yonkos crews(if they would have trained for for example 3-4 years and also have picked up some fights with some top fighters in that time- Vice Admirals etc monster trio would get very close to power of admirals and thats why it will be so exciting with what we have now. At same time as you said more first league firepower is needed to become Pirate King. Sengoku said to Ace on platform that if he would be left free he would slowly but surely grow enough to become next pirate king and Ace back then was around as strong as Luffy is now so still ways to go before hope of fighting with Yonko 1 on 1.

    Or maybe Oda will do some smaller timeskips during story that we see now. So few years will progress without doing same trick twice.
    It would be interesting to see how characters will change - looks mostly - as I lately compared Zoro and Sanji now with how they looked when they were joining.
    Badassnessss level is really growing and I didnt seen it before. After arc with Shanks I expect some badass coats at least on monster trios backs.

    Compare these to Roger. Roger had Buggy in his crew and that didn't stop him. He also conquered the Grand Line in 3 years (though I don't know what he was doing before he left Reverse Mountain with Crocus).
    The Grain Pirates. Scourge of Spelt, Corsairs of Corn, Rogues of Rye, Buccaneers of Barley, the Freebooters of the Farmland.
    What reason is there to stop a man from sailing?

    Re: Second Time Skip in New World

    Kuma comes again and blasts them away?

    Seriously though, the time skip is not just for the SHs, it will be good once this whole thing with the "underworld" is settled that Luffy and co, go back into hiding. This could just be the middle part of One Piece for all we know it, it's unpredictable to see what will happen in a unpredictable sea like the New World.

    Many things could happen to trigger this possible new time skip:

    A disturbance of the balance of power
    Some freaky incident that shakes the world like Marineford did
    Death of some important character

    Many things that are bad can provoke one.

    I think we will have a timeskip after dragon dies. Idk if he dies, but most probably he will.
