Yes, a small one (less than 1 year)
Yes, a medium one (between 1-2 years)

i dunno if there will be another time-skip but i think the training will be at least 1 month, don´t forget the frog asked tsunade to take naruto with him, i can´t imagine that he would ask it, if he only wants to take naruto for a week or twio
I think so, but not one of huge size. Probably a few weeks of skipness.
there gonna have to have a time skip.naruto off training,sasuke is after the 8 tails,pein is about to attack,madara is up to something and plus we still have kabuto/orochimaru combo out there.pretty soon a time skip will happen if he dont during narutos training it be after.
wow this thread kinda long to read every posts...
anyway i look forward for a time skip that the akatsuki rule the world and naruto and his gang will really be the underdog... kinda like "20th century boys"
after the recent event that unfolded and is about to happen i think there is 0% chance of a timeskip. There is just way too much going on for a timeskip to be germane.
Well, based on the events, i think there's no timeskip until the Akatsuki ark end. But I'm hoping there will be one.
i cant believe people think its reasonable to even suggest naruto will surpass jiraiya in a couple of weeks.
hmmm i dont know what manga you have been reading but pein killed jiraiya and pein lost only one body considering he has 6 (and some spares in the event of losing some) i'd say that was a easy win for pein. the key to winning a battle between a ninja is the ability to maintain your techniques secrets, hence the devastating advantage of the sharingan. imo for pein to say that of jiraiya was the writer softening the blow. but the fact remains in the world of ninja secrets are what win the battles.
I'd honestly want to see this Sage training in store for Naruto rather than skip it all again like he did his last training with Jiraiya. Seems it'll be somethign new and unconventional so I'd like to see it ^^
not while sasuke and madara are still alive and with pein still deciding when he wants to leave for konoha.
Unless frog mountain works like hyperbolic time chamber, naruto needs a timeskip.
the time chamber is his kb training method, so no need for a time skip.
I think Fukasaku will get into details about how naruto's training will work and stuff and then the timeskip will happen.
I read a manga called Naruto, thanks for asking.
Basically your saying that Pein completely owned Jiraiya. Re-read the fight. Jiraiya gave one heck of a fight, battling six at once. And actually, Jiraiya killed 3, and two we're revived(What manga are you reading?)
The devastating thing about the Sharingan is not that its a secret , but that it's over powered. Example, Kakashi fought Itachi knowing about MS, and he still got caught.
Secrets use to be what wins battles, now it's all about power.

anyway imo the writer was showing that death to peins sub-bodies is pointless and peins weakness is the secret to his technique therefore killing some of his bodies is pointless especially when he actually has more than 6 bodies at his disposal. however the secret = weakness rule can be applied to almost any technique, for example the rasengan's weakness is the poor delivery method, or the fact that the striking arc is too great leaving super-fast ninja the opportunity the counter attack and physically prevent the technique from connecting. in this respect it makes the sharingan devastating, because the sharingan shows the components of a technique; and to a skilled ninja that is all the info they need to find the weaknesses of that technique.
your last point about how secrets were important earlier in the manga but now it has been superseded by power, imo you are wrong. look at any fight in the manga the victor has been the one to hide the most about himself, whether it is through being underestimated or the other person (so they dont find out much about the opponent) or the opponent finding out more than the other (eg: sharingan users can get info on techniques and fighting styles and use this against their opponent). this is why i said peins statement was pointing out the obvious.
