well they might not be able to leave the fog of the demon triangle because to boost the crews power gekko might have taken away their shadows and thus they would die if they left that cloudy area
and i dont think that shichibukai are supposed to have a crew and going after one piece by your self has to be hard no matter how strong you are look at WB he is super strong has a huge crew with alot of power and hasnt found it yet
and talking about WB the yonkou are looking for OP as well and they are just as strong as the shichibukai if not stronger and they havea crew to help them out.
also they might just have moved on with thier goals they did at one point want to find it but now that they have a "job" can do other things and not worry about being chased after by the marines like if they were to go after OP and the true history which the WG wants no on to know about
well the strongest pirate whitebeard hasnt even found one piece yet and the shichibukai are former pirates that lived under whitebeard's and gold roger's shadow. so the shichibukai are still inferior to the four emperors and it follows that if the emperors cant get to one piece then the shichibukai cant
plus they are former pirates with their own crew so it's unlikely they'd be teaming up in some ways
and maybe the cause of their working for the government is because they felt helpless chasing one piece
Also, the Shichibukai represents some of the strongest individuals from the WG. They are commissioned by the WG despite the fact that some of them may have agendas of their own.
While the Shichibukai may indeed be powerful, it is highly possible that they are only as strong as the admirals at most (or maybe weaker).
Each member of the Shichibukai act independently. The admirals and vice-admirals on the other hand are more or less organized. If it was that easy to obtain the one piece, then the WG would have gotten it already with or without the help of the Shichibukai.
The Shichibukai exist only as a means to control other pirates and as a reserve weapon in case the balance tips in favor of the Yonkou. They are not powerful enough to take the One Piece by themselves, especially since they do not help each other and have no official crews anymore (some have set up crews secretly, e.g. Crocodile and Gecko Moria).
I dont think that most of the shinchibukai are interested in finding one piece. I mean hunting after a legendary treasure that may exsist in a place no one knows about, Isn't exactly the most profitable of ventures.
'Plus it's obvious it will take more than just strength to get to one piece. It will also take knowledge ... maybe the knowlege of the secret of the poneglyphs ... If no one else in the world knows how to read the ancient scripts then that would explain how Whitebeard hasn't even found it yet. Plus we know that Roger (or someone in his crew) could read poneglyphs so that may give the strawhats a edge over even whitebeard, because they have Robin~chwan.
Plus the shinchibukai aren't allowed to have crews, so they either have to go it alone or use ships and crews provided by the marines. That would make searching for OP hard because no matter how strong you are there are places you cant get to alone.
who said shichibukai's arent allowed to have crews? shichibukai's are but one thing - government's pirates. they are pirates that work for the govt. so they are allowed to have crews (what is a pirate without his crew anyways?)
We still dont know exactly what is one piece or how can you get to it. but no1 got to it yet, so it makes sense that the shichibukai didnt get to it too.
In order for a pirate to become a shichibukai they must destroy all ties with their crews.
That is something they have to give up for their bounties to be wiped.
An example that we do know of is Doflamingo and the Bellamy pirates. He had to give up the crew to become a shichibukai that's why Bellamy became the captain.
He does however, secretly still contact his crew for his own plans though.
i think that one piece is somthing that starts people off in there life as a pirate but then as they get out there and find out what the world is really like there motives and goals change look at crocodile we know that he at one point or another wanted to become pirate king but some where his goal changed to that he wanted to take over the entire world with the super weapon pluton.
I imagine it might be somthing similar with Doflamingo he goes out there with a dream and through what ever he has to come up against decides dreams are stupid and that a world where pirates dont dream would be a better place
I've pondered this question before; why hasn't anyone found One Piece yet? When you consider the multitude of characters and organizations and such that exist in the world of OP, it's hard to believe that no one's found it yet (after 20 years of searching by thousands and thousands of people). Think about the World Government as well, with the resources they have at their disposal (crossing the calm belt). If even the WG can't get OP, either they don't know where it is, or something's preventing them from obtaining it. So that led me to believe that OP is hidden somehow, or that there are preposterous obstacles in front of it or something. I wonder what kind of dangers could be between OP (presumably something tangible on Raftel) and the rest of the grand line. I'm really looking forward to finding out.
Plus roger and his crew are the only people who have gone through the entire grand line... so there must be something that everyone else is lacking that roger alone possessed... The only things that have set roger apart from other strong pirates thus far is his seeming ability (or one of his nakama's) ability to read poneglyphs... that and his D. initial. So I'm betting it'll tie heavily into one of those two characteristics .. or both!!!
Or one piece might not be in the grand line at all. It was the last (evil) joke of Roger
I believe the question should be, Why hasn't ANYONE found One Piece.
I think the shichibukai are strong, okay crocodile was defeated but it's all about weak points. So it depends on which devil fruit user you have to fight, eg: I wonder if luffy will be able to beat all of them? I would say no atm, because some types will not suit him
The reason why they didn't find the one piece? Well to be the pirate king, you have to be worth being it. So Roger will not have make it easy to find it for strong guys like WB, shichibukai etc
it was said white beard was the closest man to getting to one piece... so no luck for the shichibukai...
i think the last arc would be a race to one piece... where all the strongest groups would have an all out war of surrvival of the fittest....
