Lol I could see the fishman living in the aquarium built in on the 1000sunny, that would be a riot, luffy and ussop dumping sharks down there forgetting it's their crew members room, the sharks hiding and afraid bcoz they realize it's a fishmans room
I think an important thing were overlooking here is Boa's ridiculous infatuation/love with Luffy. I'm fairly open minded when it comes to the next nakama, but the way I'm seeing things, theres only 2 possible outcomes for the "next"nakama.
1) Boa goes with Luffy
2) Boa sends someone else with Luffy to keep him in check
Considering how much the SH's will have powered up in 2 years time, i really can't see anyone on AL being sufficiently strong enough to go with them.
So now I'm trying to think of people Boa knows/trust's who are sufficiently strong (this is obviously assuming she won't go herself, which is probably more likely) outside of AL, and the only things i have come up with to the current time is:
- Shakky (her power level to this point is somewhat unknown)
- Possibly a fishmen that Boa befriended while she was imprisoned
The general consensus in this thread is that the next nakama will be a fishmen of some sort. I can only see this happening as per the 2nd option above. If this is not the case, I believe a fishmen will have to join after the next nakama joins.
Would just like to re-iterate, some of you may shrug off what elder nyon said earlier in the AL arc about love sickness, but from what we have seen in One Piece to date, is that Oda doesn't create such plot holes, and as such, i don't see any way around what I have mentioned above.
EDIT: i guess a 3rd option I overlooked is that Boa just dies of love sickness, problem solved.

The last member will be/is already: VIVI.
What the SHs really need is not a helmsman, but a good politician!!
Sure, the SHs are a pirate crew and a politician is normally not needed, so Vivi is not an active member at the moment.
But thinks of the end of One Piece!
At the end of One Piece they should have discovered all the information about the void century and have probably fought and overthrown the WG directly. And then?? Vivi for president.
I've been thinking about this for a while. My bet is that Perona is going to join the crew. Someone said she doesn't have the back story to join the crew, but that's just not true at all. Robin joined the crew without the Strawhats knowing ANYTHING about her. In fact, she was still their enemy at that point in a way. Perona could definitely have a very in depth back story. My guess is that somehow Moria saved her life and brought her to join his crew.
Here's my idea for the arc which she would join in.
Perona will stay with the strawhats for a while in hopes of finding Moria or what happened to him. Since he managed to escape from Doflamingo alive he is now attempting to kill Kaidou. He won't be able to, being much weaker but will have Luffy brought into the mix who will end up having to fight Kaidou. X Drake is gonna get involved in this arc as well, having a vendetta against Kaidou, as well as the world government, due to the fact that Kaidou and the WG have come to some kind of agreement, being the reason for why Kaidou attempted to stop Whtiebeard from attacking Marineford. They'll have a huge adventure and eventually Luffy will defeat Kaidou. Before this happens Moria will have a change in heart and tell Perona to follow the straw hats before dying due to injuries that Kaidou caused onto him. After defeating Kaidou and his crew Perona will finally officially join the crew.
Keimi, Hatchan and Pappug won't ever officially join the crew. They'll ride along with the Strawhats, guiding them to Fishman island which will turn out to be in terrible turmoil, setting them off on a new adventure. My guess is that another pirate is going to have claimed the island as his own territory and the place will be in shambles. Luffy will save the island and take out whoever claimed the island as their own. They may gain a fishman as a crewman, but I'm not too sure about this.
Either way, Perona is going to join the crew. She'll bring endless amounts of hilarity involved with her negative ghosts using them on Sanji and Zoro. haha
the only reason i cant see perona joining is because of the reunion. it would spoil the reunion if she was 2 join them right away.
she is definite strawhat material with her funny sense of humor and the way she acts.
of all the characters that could possibly join, i would not be shocked if either boa, jinbei, or perona joined. hopefully by the end of the year things become clearer
I like Perona and her whole Goth Loli "thing".. She would fit with the chemistry of the SH.. But IMO unless she has her own grand dreams and passion it wouldn't fit with the true bonds the other SH have.. Remember before Reverse Mtn..?? When the SH all proclaimed their desires and dreams.. It seems like the SH all have their own painful pasts and moments where their pasts bonded their futures...
For Example... Luffy and Shanks.. the whole Dadan/Sabo/Ace thing..
Zoro.. Kuina and all that.
You get it..
Perona up until recently has been whining to return to Moria Sama.. Sounds like deep down she is comfortable in the protection of someone else... But maybe like Vivi or Camie or something like that, I could see her interacting with the SH....
She'd be afraid of Usopp, and in love with Chopper.. Heh.
I don't know who the next SH is.... But really think seeing Jinbei's Fishman Karate and Hachi mentioning the Dojo are premonitions of a future Fishman Fishman Karate user... dunno why just a guess..
It would make more sense if Perona stays with Mihawk. Or should i say ... Dracula Mihawk. It would not be outside the realm of possibilities that Mihawk has eaten the Vampire Zoan fruit. I definitly think Perona will stay in the story, but it would just be cooler if she floated around with Mihawk, than with the Strawhats.
But we are talking about Oda afterall ...
I think perona will stay and boss around the baboons. Remeber a much bigger war will eventually come and the strawhats are goin 2 need allies. Fishman island has been built up so much that a major event has 2 happen. Robin was the only real shocker 2 join.
I'll bet everything that Perona will stay with Mihawk.
Think about it: Fits the theme, they're both gothic and Mihawk is probable the only one able to control her so far.
^ That's true about the theme and all but I can never imagine Mihawk with someone else tagging along with him or with his own crew, if that makes sense? His one-man/beast team. The Greatest Swordsmen in the World...the title deserves to be held by one man without a crew or partner, etc. Obviously, with Zoro's dream it's completely different but Mihawk's character is unique. I like him the way he is now.
I'm not ruling the Perona thing out completely but I'm sure she's having second thoughts of actually staying on the island. It's only "fun" now since Mihawk and Zoro are with her. All alone is quite sad and depressing lol. She'll definitely be with someone or with a group later on but atm I'm not too sure where her fate/destiny lies...zehahaha. XD!
I find it weird if Oda were to cap the numbers of SHs at less then 20.I cant imagine the future Pirate King crew having less then 20 members.
Cause let's say what happen to Ace happened on 1 of the SHs,and then 20 pirates going against a war with the Marines like what WB is doing now?Lmao...
And the most obvious similarities between those big shot pirates(not counting the supernovas) their crew has quite a large number of people.Not sure bout Gold Roger's one but take WB for example and you'll know.
oO Whitebeards crew was the biggest on earth and it seems like 90% were fodder, so what are numbers worth, if they can't even fight an pacifista. Look at Shanks crew, he started with a dozen and with the years it became bigger and bigger. His main crew is still only consisting of 10 very strong fighters as it seems.
Why should Luffy prepare to fight the WG alone, if it's indicated that his allies from past adventures will come to his aid in when he will need it the most. Did you really follow the plot ? :P
