Well, to our luck hancock is a character who can catch up to luffy at any point in the manga. Since she can travel the calm belt it is easy for her to move long distances quite fast to say the least. Travelling to fishman island and out should be a breeze with their poisonous sea monsters too. All she has to do is get to the new world, get to the calm belt and in less than half the time than anyone else imaginable she would get to where luffy is. It would take her at most a few weeks...
My theory is that other Marinefold ark was foreshadowing for the moment when all of Luffy's allies assemble under his banner for the final battle.
So the next time we see Hancock, Ivankov, Shirahoshi/Noah and Rayleigh will be then...

I think we will she her again at the "big war" which WB mentioned. It's obvious that at the time Luffy will bring all allies he made during the journey, and Hancock will definitely be one of them.
a little bit off topic,,
I missed Bon-chan a lot more. Strawhats owe him BIG time... And I do have a feeling that we'll see him again at the war too.
I started to dislike her ever since Oda turned her to a love romance idiotic character. She is baddass, but those scenes with Luffy just annoying. The Shichubukai are one of my favourite groups/organisation in the manga, at first I thought of her a great adition, but the more we learned, I started to dislike her.
Hopefully she appears not before the war WB predicted. I don't mind small scenes as for instance reading any news regarding the SHs in the newspaper or bigger scenes involving her and the WG, but nothing involving a direct event with Luffy.
Although I am missing her, I don't think she'll come up within the next two or three years from our point of view. The reason is pretty simple: Oda already told everything important about her, and right now there hardly is something to add. She can't follow Luffy only for the sake of her love, nor is there any threat to neither her and her sisters nor to the Kuja like a danger from the revelation of the Boa sisters' secret.
And I don't think Oda would troll all the Hancock haters with "leaving Jinbe back in Fishman Island - but hey there's Hancock". But - depending from how Oda is gonna make up the fight of the Straw Hats vs. Bigmam Pirates, I can see her (and other Shichibukai) being an alternative than any Marine or other rookie or other force to be blamed for "bringing down a yonkou" instead of Luffy. As Smoker was graduated for defeating Crocodile.
missing her? nope as long as i see robin =)
I will continue miss her if all I see in Sunny is Nami and Robin. But if they get another woman as nakama....
I miss her. She was a fun character and Amazon Lilly was a great arc. Hopefully she will be back at some point. She is an important ally, should her and Luffy ever cross paths again.
I want her to join the crew or take on a frequently recurring role or something. She's just so fun! Her and Buggy are the two character that whenever I see their faces it just makes me want to cheer because I know whatever is about to happen is going to be great.
Because she is a pirate I believe it is possible for her to have a large role at some point in the future. She does not have to be tied down to one island like Vivi does. That is not to say she will although at some point she could. Wouldn't it be great if she allies herself with Luffy again whenever the Strawhats have to face Doflamingo?
I totally agree with Jammin: Hancock and Buggy are two characters that always make me smile. Both are so much fun and have been involved in some of the best arcs of the series. I would also add Vivi to that category. Her cameo's always make my day.
