I found Bartolomeo's power kind of lame and the least surprising answer to last chapters cliffhanger. I'm not going to say it's one of my least favorite fruits yet though because I have a feeling Oda will probably have Bartolomeo use this power in some sort of creative and unexpected way later in the tournament.
I'm more surprised seeing Bart working for someone.
The holds no respect to anyone, whoever he's working for gotta be someone special to hold him on leash.
Barto is working for Eustass KIDD, since I feel that his look suits the whole metal theme that Kidd's crew has. Kidd is repel and barto is barrier. PErfect match lol

I don't think that Bart is a part of BB's crew because the members of the crew don't seem to have any DD fruit powers,so I think barto would have been killed on the spot and have his power taken by BB.

I don't think Bart is working for wb's crew,BB,kaidou or shanks,first I believe that BB has the power to contain and control more fruits then just two and its seem like to me that none of bb crew members have devil fruits.Plus its been said that BB's crew is capturing pirates with DD fruits so why would bart be working with him.
Also I don't think wb's crew or shanks would work with him because I don't see either of crews working with someone so violanet (Bart gunned down seven innocent people).Lastly why would kaidou send bart to get the mera mera fruit if he could call up doflamingo to send it to him.
Even if he's a commander or even lower under BB, he's a foul-mouthed punk, yeah, but he hasn't appeared to be cruel yet.
For example, when he threw that ball into the audience and everyone thought it was a bomb, I think that had Laffitte done that (for example), it would have been a real bomb. Also, BB got some of the worst and cruelest prisoners from level 6. To me, Bart doesn't seem to hit that level. And because I don't think BB would settle for anything less than the best of the worst, that's why I think it's not BB.
That, and Burgess is already participating, though we've yet to see anyone from ex-WB, and I do think we should see someone. It can't be that Marco and the others would just ignore DD auctioning off Ace's fruit.
Although Bart's face seems to fit into Kaido's animal/beast theme, his ability seems to be odd one out. Unless he thinks getting the Mera Mera would make up for that.
I don't see Big Mam or Shanks showing up though. I think they are not at all invested/involved with DD or Dressrosa or the fruit.
I wonder how far in we'll get into Block C/Luffy's fight before we switch to the others. Either way, I'm happy that the matches are going fairly quickly.
Also, don't the winners of the Blocks go straight up against DD's men? In which case, Bart and Luffy would not be fighting (providing Luffy wins his own).
Now that Ricky lost, I also think that Rebecca will lose. If their goals are the same.
Honestly, Blue Gilly's legs creeped me out a lot.
From the toy soldier's words and Ricky's/Rebecca's actions, it seems that DD rise to power was not completely fair. It would be a nice twist if it turns out he's holding the whole island hostage. Will also explain Law's worries that no one seems to know/be concerned that DD lost his Shichibukai and King position.
Hey, I just thought of something. Everyone underestimated the King's power, and look what happened (granted, some were right about Bartolomeo's power blocking it, but still). A lot of you believe that Rebecca is weak just because the guy that Luffy easily took down bullied her even though she's called the Undefeated Woman. Since the King's punch lived up to the hype, care to reconsider your thoughts on Rebecca?
The story is moving forward which is great. The king's punch is very impressive. I think the ole boy Luffy is going to learn it, and it seems like things are about to heat up with Franky and the factor. I think this arc, the strawhats are going to gain a lot of allies. I also think that Bellamy is going to join Law's crew
Well, how barriers can be used for attacking is obvious. Think of Barto's fruit as a specific form of CoA.
