Two questions for this thread: How strong could be CP0? What is their job or role among the WG?
In regards to the first one I'll begin with this post by kkck
im not surprised with them. i was even expecting some sort of group like the cp9 in the new world buuut this doesnt mean theyll have big roles, sometimes oda introduces some characters for the purpose of hyping some other ones, it could be this way with this new group. i wont put much expactation on them heads on, ill just go with the flow and let oda do his thing hoho
Of course if we are going to talk about Vice-Admirals, there is probably a wide range of strength among them. If it had to be put in bounties, I would say they would range from 200 to 400 million. So it's hard to tell.
Don't think about their strength at the moment, but think about the role Cypher Pol plays in general and think about the political climate in Dressrosa right now. They are the WG's Intelligence Agency that focus on the things that could change the world, like the Ohara Incident and the dealings with Tom and Pluton. Dressrosa is in a delicate state right now so they are probably their to take over when stuff finally goes down.
Or maybe they are their to protect a certain someone from the marines. A certain "Young Master" come to mind. That is if the theory of him being related to one of the Gorosei ends up being true.
As for strength, since they are the New World division, I expect them to be stronger. I expect them to have mastered Rokushiki or maybe something more, along with haki.
I wish Vergo would have been a member of CP0, i really liked him as a bad guy and wanted to see more of him. Either way I think that Violet is a member of CP0
After the story ventured into the new world , it isn't surprising that such a unit exists. Looking back now that the story entered the new world 'saga', the strength of CP9 isn't enough to deal with the heavy weights of the new world pirates . CP0 is probably the CP9 of the new world part of OP's universe.

The way they were introduced as CP - Aigis 0 could hold a clue, The word aegis or aigis is the greek shield for Zeus. This could mean this CP 0 are the protectors of WG secrets, such as how CP 9 were the assassins for WG.
This could mean that Doflamingo do have some relation to the WG not just the shichibukai, but something like related to a Gouresie.
the greatest threat Sakazuki has ever faced. Conflict with Doflamingo could be viewed as a high enough level threat that CP0 was dispatched to eliminate the problem by any means necessary.
A lot also depends on how much the Marine knows. If Doflamingo's connections to Kaido have been revealed to HQ, CP0's presence would be fully explained. The Government would want to avoid at all costs a Yonkou being drawn into the conflict between Doflamingo, Luffy, and Law.

This chapter showed us, Oda is playing his game in a way that covers all the fronts. Coming back to the new techs topic, I would say, that if a new power or tech is introduced it will be in a way that it will serves the development of the main plot. If that is not possible then, or it won't be introduced at all or it will be but it will not take a central place in the arc. For sure, it wouldn't have an staring role comparable to the one Rokushiki had in W7. I image something like some few panels about it, with not much explanation of it, and move on with the central plot. In that way I would like it. I mean, its possible to do it avoiding the dangers of the chiches.
Taken from another thread
CP9 were a little bit of a joke. If you think of how Nami won her battle, I mean, the gap in strength between Jabra, Kaku and Lucci and the rest was a little ridiculous. (Special mention to the Doa Doa Fruit, that thing would come in handy everyday in my life).
I want to everybody in CP0 to be genuinely strong. And not lose in a silly fashion like Kalifa did.
Or rather, characters who can use their DF's as good as Lucci did and not use it in a basic manner.
