Anyway, even if they had the ability to shrink/grow size, Luffy would be still able to find them with haki, if he concentrates.
How can the strawhats still be that much underestimated ? Normally, given their outrageous past, anyone, even a yonkou should be worried by the news "strawhats are here". Two giants are telling Caesar that they killed easily roronoa zoro & Caesar isn't even asking them if they are sure ?
I would like to see a villain who isn't taking victory for granted.
Maybe they are just that good, maybe that's the reason Caesar said: "It might be overdoing it but... I sent those two over there." I hope the Mugiwaras won't meet any more antagonists as weak as Caribou and assassins from the New World should be capable of "something". If a fighter like Zoro lies on the ground, that usually means that he's K.O., not that he's disguisng himself as a corpse.

As always Law stole the interest of this chapter. Why did he come here ? How does he know Joker ? Who reminds him CC ? And still no news about his crew. Also there was the interesting comment about the log pose. It really seems like it is impossible to come here by normal means, I hope it will be revealed one day how marines do.
CC: “If you call your friends you’ll do even better”… So, contrary to what was supposed, CC doesn’t have Law’s crew captured, and haven’t used it at all to blackmail him. (here, I assume “Law’s friends” are his crew).
CC: “You want to stay at PH?”… So Law and CC aren’t mates or forced mates in a team, and it is highly probable they don’t purpose the same objectives. Specially, Law is not obeying orders from CC. They have some kind of mutual help agreement; an agreement that is compatible with CC requesting Law to cut some beings for his experiments, and Law ruling in some respects to CC: “You are not to tell anyone I am here. That includes Joker”.
About that agreement, each part has some dirty secrets to each other: (experimented children for one and connection with SHs for the other). In fact, Monet making some notes about who Law is and what can he do, suggest Law just have arriving recently to PH, or at least meeting recently CC’s group. Also, notice that CC is capable of believe Law asked Luffy to come to PK. So they must not know much about each other.
But, even knowing those secrets, each one can keep that agreement. None part trust each other, and as far as there is no conflict of interests, each one can have that only-business coexistence.
How they help each other? It seems Law helps CC guarding PH, and so, facilitating CC’s experiments follow peacefully; a luxury vigilant. CC seems to believe that shishibukai condition gives him and his boss some kind of security about Law’s intentions. (Behind CC could be WG or some part of it; and... couldn’t be that security one of the reasons why Law wanted Shishibukai title?)
But how CC helps Law? Any ideas? I don’t even have a clue. Law shows himself very interested on PH… but, again, he is, to me, a complete mystery.
Regarding cool bros, they can be really strong in this way: they could be subjects of previous succeed experiments, who could develop some kind of addiction. Voices could be related to it. Their addictions would be their weak point exploited by CC. But addicted as they can be, they still can be powerful subjects. … (If someone uses surprise tactics, that doesn’t mean he/she can’t fight without them.)

But it would be bad writing on Oda's part if he doesn't give a good explanation for their sudden appearance/disappearance, but I think he will give a good reason, I also think that the brothers could have been experimented on and hence achieved those powers, since I don't think it can be a DF. Oda just keeps adding more mystery to this arc, it kinda makes it 1. hard to talk about each chapter although Rand 2. Predict what the hell is gonna happen next.
But I guess that's why we like One Piece
And about staying out of Law's business, that tremble CC's hand holding a gun can mean that CC fears Law. Notice that Law gives much more importance to Joker knowing about him than to CC knowing about him. CC and Law could know that Joker could come to make things difficult to Law... just a conjecture.

Even someone like Caesar can get scared by a Shichibukai, especially if he has such a murderous reputation. See how he was trembling when he drew out the gun? What do we learn from that, don't get on their bad side.
My opinion on Joker:

At first, I thought that Zoro, Sanji, and Brook were playing possum and the brothers found them that way. However, I'm betting that it has something to do with Brook's powers that make them appear dead.
Excellent chapter. Never imagined that Bon Clay would become the New Kama Land Queen on level 5.5, but it's a great development nonetheless. Seems like the perfect role for him. The Yeti Bros are already far cooler than I thought they would be. I'm seriously hoping the other Strawhats get to take them on. And Caesar is becoming more interesting by the chapter. Can't wait to see what this guy can do. I also like the pace at which Law's motives are coming to light. Seems like we'll get another teaser at his true intentions next chapter. Great to see Luffy using the Color of Observation. I'm anxiously awaiting the day we'll see him use it during a fight again. Lastly, Smoker and Tashigi, where art thou?
Wow it seems Oda really is trying to make Magellan look like crap more and more.
After being demoted, we discover not only he didn't kill Bon Clay, but that he is better than ever and those prisoners are still enjoying themselves at lv 5.5.
It's funny how CC can point a gun to Law with no consequences, it appears like Law is inferior to him, though I think he acts like that because of his hidden agenda.
