Anyway Oda, you can't kill Sabo at every arc !

Oda during Luffy Flashback: This is Sabo

Oda towards end of Luffy Flashback: Sabo ded lol

Oda in Dressrosa: You remember Sabo? He's alive.

Oda post-reveries: Nahhh, Sabo's dead.

Oda post-Wano: J.k. he's alive...

Oda 1059: Well, maybe not anymore lol.

Luffy and Chopper both got blown away by the wind, so they're probably going to be separated from everyone for a bit unless someone rescues them both.

The next island is going to be the winter island that Oars died at.

It's right next to Wano, so there's prime opportunity for Moria to have gone there directly after escaping from Kaido and encountered Oars corpse.

And Oda had Chopper wear the hat made by Tama and had it commented on, and we know that Ace learned from Tama and then taught Oars Jr. how to make the same kind of hats, which seems connected

You think it’s also the winter island where don chinjao split open the ice to get the treasure?

I find it hard to forget a kingdom just because it was eradicated. How does the world gov cover it up. Unlike god valley, this is an actual kingdom with connection to other kingdoms. Surely someone will notice.

206

u/geo07w Sep 17 '22

Was thinking about that as well. But what we know about One Piece is that all islands seem to be relatively far from each other. Nobody would even see something like that. Obviously there's a lot of trade going on between islands and kingdoms, but they can easily explain it as a natural calamity like a volcanic eruption, a quake and tsunami... The point is that there's no-one alive left to explain what happened.

56

u/BiomedicBoy Sep 17 '22

Then we could bring up, those beams were pretty bright. Any pirate ships or other vessels nearby could probably have seen it. Gotta be bad luck and coincidence if no one saw it.

Or sabo will somehow survive to tell the tale.

88

u/geo07w Sep 17 '22

True, but even if some far-off pirate ship saw it the only thing they could think is a huge lightning storm. How else would a normal person explain that? Any ships near the island would get wiped out as well.

Of course the erasure isn’t immediate, it takes time for these things to be be forgotten.

Once its records are destroyed and the spread of the name itself prohibited, when Lulusia is out of living memory then it’s pretty much gone like it never existed.

19

u/The__Dread___Lobster Sep 19 '22

We've been in the grand line for so long it's sometimes hard to remember the fact that it was a massive plot point that travel on the grand line is insanely difficult. Pirates do it all the time, but they're the best of the best to have gotten that far out to sea. Most average people are probably only aware of other places through things like the news or an occasional Trader who comes into town. Aside from royalty and people who have access to very Advanced to Navigators and high quality ships, I don't think the average person ever leaves their Island or has met someone from a different Island.

One of the big plot points from the water 7 Arc was that the seatrain suddenly made it possible for basic travel between islands safely.

u/PlusUltraK Sep 19 '22

The fact that the 5 Elders seemingly intervene to cut off communications and then inform the Signal trackers “Nothing happened, island got redacted” it’s a whole process. But in the WG at various levels it’s a lot of hush hush, and falling in line.

Akainu torched the island Robin was from, and there’s an entire void century which was a probs a bunch of death, and burning of records. The shitty part of it is that Imu is actively revolting against revolution by outright destroying kingdoms the second they turned.

u/Shiryu3392 Sep 19 '22

Might be reading too much into this, but the way Ym (imu) talked about the country never existing and no one noticing something is off... Kind of feels like they mean it literally. As in they can somehow make people forget.

u/chibachoose Sep 19 '22

My personal theory is that the world doesn't instantly forget. The WG probably forbids people from talking about the kingdom that people eventually forget or start to act like it doesn't exist out of fear.

u/locuas642 Sep 19 '22

It stops showing up un history books. teachers stop teaching of it. you "interrogate" people who talk about it under suspicion of being rebels trying to spread propaganda and misinformation until that lie stops being spread.

and then, two or three generations later, most people have never heard of that island that never existed.

u/geo07w Sep 17 '22

We saw Imu sit on the "Empty" Throne while talking to the Gorosei about the "next light to be extinguished." Sabo said he saw Imu sit on the throne, so I think he overheard this conversation, tried to protect Vivi and clashed against CP0. Vivi escaped, Cobra died. Sabo distracted them while the RA Commanders rescued Kuma.

Bonney must somehow play into this. Fujitora and Greenbull were also present, I wonder what they were busy with.

And I think we might honestly be heading straight to Elbaf. There were a lot of hints about Elbaf and a few years ago the community seemed to really believe that Elbaf would follow Wano, don't know why it's not being discussed. If Elbaf really is based on Norse Mythology, there's no better season than winter. And all the Sea Kings we've seen seem to be serpents, like little versions of the World Serpent from norse mythology. Eddy currents caused from warm water? Sounds like there's some magma underground. In Scandinavia there aren't any volcanoes, but there are a lot in Iceland, and the Vikings were the first to inhabit it.

157

u/Persas12 Sep 17 '22

I guess I can see where Bonney fits here, this will be totally headcanon.

We know that Bonney has knowledge about Kuma so maybe she knows that he is part of the RA, so she works along Sabo and the RA to save him.

She ends up with Sabo, Vivi and Cobra. Cobra somehow dies, Sabo stays behind and Bonney runs away with Vivi, turning both into children so people don't recognize them.

Kuma under Vivi's unknowingly request sends Bonney and Vivi to a safe place, Vivi runs away from Bonney and Bonney is currently looking for her.

64

u/geo07w Sep 17 '22 edited Sep 17 '22

Bonney working with the RA would be cool. We also know that Donquixote Mjosgard promised to protect Shirahoshi, maybe Shirahoshi asked him to help Vivi as well?

But if you think about it, there's no way Sabo and CP0 had a full-on fight in Mariejois since the risk of hurting the Tenryuubito and creating a huge incident has to be avoided at all costs. Do you think they might have exchanged Kuma for Cobra?

Also, how did the Gorosei even know where Sabo went?

Edit: They intercepted Sabo's call from Lulusia, my bad.

78

u/kaixiangM Sep 17 '22

From how the Gorosei was talking, it seems Lulusia was planned to be wiped out already as they say it is fate and how unlucky Sabo is. It just so happened that Sabo was in that area and now knows 2 of the WG's biggest secrets

39

u/RodNun Sep 17 '22

I like this, because the timing of all this is not right to me. Between the moment the marines found where Sabo are and the explosion is passed maybe one minute or less. Is not enough time to move something allegedly big as a world destruction weapon.

50

u/mateoinc Sep 17 '22

Winter island doesn't exactly mean that it's always winter. There's 16 seasons on the grand line. A winter island still has a warmer season (it would probably still be cold, but I don't remember any confirmation in the story that "winter island == always snowing").

68

u/badluckartist Thriller Bark Victim's Association Sep 17 '22

Point: It did look very temperate where Caramel's orphanage is.

Counterpoint: Elbaf is probably fucking MASSIVE, what with being the home of giants. Even as a winter island, it probably has zones that are themselves microbiomes.

29

u/MonkeyDLofwyr Sep 18 '22

One of the first panels of Big Mom on Elbaf, as she is alone after eating all her candy, is a snow scene. Linlin sits there hungry and covered in snow.

They also have a big Winter festival. So we could certainly be headed to Elbaf right now.

u/MisterHuesos Sep 17 '22

The reason I think that Sabo is fine(he is, 100%) is that in every panel showing a Lulusia resident the light was shown from above them, whereas with Sabo, it was from the side. His eyes are looking to his right, not above his head.

Plus, every panel of him is a close up of his face and we are not shown his surroundings. He's definitely on a ship away from the island.

118

u/babyswagmonster Sep 17 '22

He could be looking out a window. Or maybe he's on a ship?

123

u/MisterHuesos Sep 17 '22

Ship. The thing is, even if Sabo could survive the blast, there was nothing remaining of that island, so Sabo would be at sea and drown. A ship is the easiest way out for Sabo here.

Imu did not blast Lulusia because of Sabo. The Elders say that it's bad luck or fate, so clearly the "cleansing" of Lulusia was already happening anyway. Which triggers the question: why Lulusia?

99

u/kathuntress Sep 18 '22

I think it has something to do with the words of the gorosei before meeting with Imu. The world balance is at risk, so maybe it's time for a great cleansing.

I recently noticed that the gorosei that one time vowed to Imu as if the first time in a long time. Saying they were at imu's service. So it got me thinking that Imu kind of "wakes up" every certain time to check up on things. The people at the top (gorosei) give Imu the news and then goes back to "sleep" but this time, certain events that have happened made Imu realize something huge was cooking up and that it needed to be taken care of.

So here's what I think happened:

1) Previous Reverie - Imu goes back to "sleep". (4y ago) leaves the world like this: 4 Yonkos, 7 shichibukai, the marine etc, there's balance in the world.

2) Current Reverie - Imu "wakes up" and finds this: Poseidon is of age (16), a pirate that ate the gomu gomu (aka hito hito no mi Model nika) has defeated 2 former shichibukai and is now (when the reverie starts) fighting two yonkos, is traveling with a woman that can read Poneglyphs, the shichibukai system is about to be disbanded, there was a war against the marines 2y ago, where the strongest man in the world declared that the one piece does exist. A prison break from impel down happens, More Pirates tackle the seas, and the revolutionary army makes huge advances everyday, even convincing 8 countries to coup against the GM. The balance is gone, and the WG/marines are the ones losing power

So the gorosei asume that Imu will do a cleansing to try and regain "balance". That's why they ask Imu whose light needs to be shut down this time. And also why Imu goes to the vault under Pangea Castle. It is time to act.

So, lulucia and the other 8 countries need to be taken care of, the former shichibukai apprehended so the WG can out maneuver the new Yonko and return the balance to the world.

I do believe that Lulucia might be the first of the 8 kingdoms to be erased in this new era. Or at least used as an example of what happens to those countries that defy the WG. The RA cannot do anything on their own, they need kingdoms to follow them in their coup against the nobles.

The gorosei, when Imu is "asleep", and are capable of solving problems on their own, order the use of buster calls.

Lulusia was destroyed to regain balance and Sabo just happened to be there when Imu nuked the kingdom. It might even be possible that using that power makes Imu sick, or too weak, and that's why it needs to hibernate every 4 years.

29

u/Mythosaurus Sep 18 '22

I like your idea of Buster Calls being an imitation of Im’s destructive power/ Uranus. Would be in line with the Pacifistas being an imitation of warlords, with lasers made in imitation Of Kizaru’s devil fruit.

u/pogreg26 Pirate Sep 19 '22

There have to be drawbacks to Uranus(?) because if not, enemies of the government would have to always be in movement. Staying in one place would expose them to destruction.

I'd say it has a long cooldown (months?, years?) between shots and that's why I don't think the other 7 are destroyed

u/gyrozepp2 Lazy Justice Sep 17 '22

The revolutionaries freed them in chapter 904 which probably gave them the power and confidence to overthrow their kingdom (and donating heavenly tribute in the process).

The rebellion against the government during the reverie probably sealed their doom.

50

u/gabutaro Sep 17 '22

I understand your point and you're probably right, but Imu, for what we know, doesn't seem like somebody who just blasts islands over just that... I mean, he didn't blast Ohara which was definitely a bigger threat to the world government, so I still want to believe there's something else

94

u/Sondrelk Sep 17 '22

The WG likely wanted the world to know that Ohara was being punished though. Removing the entire island and erasing its existence kinda defeats that purpose.

Doing the same to a rebellious country is more overtly tyrannical, which is why simply removing it completely might have been chosen. The WG doesn't want anyone to even know a rebellion happened.

19

u/gabutaro Sep 17 '22

Fair point about Ohara. But for Lulusia, as somebody else pointed out, why not erase Kamabakka instead?

32

u/Sondrelk Sep 17 '22

Impossible to say. Might be slightly out of range. Impossible to get to by air. Or for that matter, maybe they don't know the revolutionaries are there to begin with.

Another option of course is that the WG doesn't want to remove the revolutionaries that quickly. They want to ensure they defeat them publicly, and that would likely require not using their secret superweapon.

21

u/Positive-Language-70 Sep 17 '22

But they know that the Revolutionaries are there, because they heard the conversations between Sabo and the Revolutionaries, so they know that Dragon and the others are on Kamabakka, so why Imu didn't used Uranus to destroy it?

You say that they want to defeat them publicly, but what would they gain doing that? Absolutely nothing, so it is better to kill the Revolutionaries as soon as possible, especially now that Joyboy has returned.

27

u/Sondrelk Sep 17 '22

It would still reveal they have a giant superweapon capable of destroying entire islands. Remember that their entire justification for destroying Ohara was claiming that they were about to use this kind of weapon. It's not exactly a good look if they parade their own superweapon around.

Besides, could be loads of reasons it doesn't work. Could be it only works on WG affiliated countries for some reason. Or given Dragon is there they might be afraid he will know how to stop and destroy it.

It's the first time we have seen the weapon. Might be a better explanation forthcoming in a later chapter.

I think the timing is key here, these guys have probably only been mulling over a "great cleansing" pretty recently, as the balance of the world has spiraled out of control now. Chapter 908 is important in this regard.

It's also been almost a week since Nika's return is all but confirmed to them, so it's understandable that they will begin taking drastic measures. Measures which haven't been taken for centuries

18

u/gabutaro Sep 17 '22

This is one of the possible explanations, we're seeing part of a great cleansing aimed at restoring the balance in the world. Again, I have a hard time believing that just a rebellion, which could probably be settled easily by an admiral or two, creates such imbalance, but as you said it could be just bad timing

u/_Porthos Sep 17 '22

Maybe Lulusia was important before joining the Revolution?

I mean, one of the BB's goons (Peach Beard?) conquered the island in his name. And despite being a somehow poor country (as we know, the Heavenly Tribute was enough to make it broke), it’s king was still called for the Levely and there is Marine Naval Base quite near it.

So maybe, just maybe, this country can have some sort of secret important to the world. And Im decided it is better to destroy this secret now that peace is at risk.

78

u/gyrozepp2 Lazy Justice Sep 17 '22

What's interesting is that she appeared to be in her kid form while she was entrapped in that current, so that could be her actual age?

I mean, if she was a young/old adult I don't see the need to force herself into her child form as she's alone in this torrential weather (and in sea water).

Her mannerisms don't seem to be that of an adult too honestly.

She could be Kuma's daughter and Connie (the one who she impersonated as during the reverie) could be her grandmother.

45

u/RestinPsalm Sep 17 '22

Maybe her ability is just to change her age, and removing it simply makes it so she’s stuck in whatever form she’s in?

38

u/One_Ad_9858 Sep 18 '22

Like Chopper’s hybrid form. Even when he is thrown into water he never changes back to his original form so I don’t think that Bonny’s real age has to be that of a child necessary

It would make sense for the King of the Pirates to have his flag visible for the whole world to see. Maybe Luffy somehow wants to carve his flag into the moon. This could perhaps be possible with one of the ancient weapons, if one of them shoots a big laser.  

If Luffy gets Usopp to do the drawing then it might look like this.  

If Luffy does the drawing himself then it could look like this.

u/pudgypoultry God Usopp Sep 18 '22 edited Sep 18 '22

Luffy's Dream is to have a party and eat with every pirate in the world, which is why you'd need to be Pirate King to do that.

My big theory is that Im is a Lunarian. The beam that made Lulusia "not exist" was likely a massive equivalent of the Pacifista's attack, and it was shot from the moon. The Lunarians are colonizers of earth who actively suppress humans by creating a hierarchy in order to establish their dominance through enforcement of that hierarchy. My proof?

What Enil Learned on Endless Verth.

I believe the void century is unknown because that was the initial invasion of Earth by the Lunarians when the Lunarians decided it was time to raid "The Blue Planet" for its resources. The missing city that we don't know anything about? That was where Lunarians and Humans were living peacefully together, but that can't be true if the hierarchy is going to be enforced, so it was made to "no longer exist" just like Lulusia. As a small additional bit, this would make sense why Kaido's first mate was a Lunarian pirate and he's the only Lunarian we know of that is currently a pirate, those who disagree with the rest of the Lunarians are just that few and far between, and if they disagree then they'd *HAVE* to become a pirate to side with the humans.

The Tenryuubito are either half-human/half-lunarian descendants, or they have been tricked into thinking they are by the lunarians which is why they think they are "naturally" above the rest of the world. They live up on Mary Geoise because of the altitude and they wear literal space suits when visiting the "commoners". It makes total sense that the people subjugated by the Tenryuubito would rationalize these space suits as "they won't even breathe the same air as us because they think they're so far above us." Because they literally do think they are that far above them. The Tenryuubito literally think they are from space.

This would also make sense as to why the higher ups in the Marines seem to give total respect to their every word, the Tenryuubito would have told the highest ranked admirals that they are literally not of this world.

Additionally, I believe that the One Piece is a literal piece of the moon, likely something that proves the existence of the Lunarian invasion during the void century AND shows how pathetic the Tenryuubito are simultaneously. This explains why Roger laughed so hard, absolute proof that the Tenryuubito are just idiots, but written on a moon rock. It explains why no one who has seen it explains what it is.

What are they gonna do? Say "Moon men made the Tenryuubito"? They'd look like jackasses, no one would believe them. So it's just so absurd that it's *that* funny.

Last bit? Moon Writing (top right) vs Poneglyph

See how they both match the square-letter form of writing!?

u/sqlphilosopher Void Month Survivor Sep 19 '22

This doesn't explain why Roger would say that they where "late" because Shirahoshi wasn't born yet, which is the real reason why no one who has seen the One Piece, Roger's former crew, talks about it.

I think Lulusia was nuked for a different reason other than rebellion. The Marines and the WG seems to know that Kamabakka is the revolutionaries' hideout so why don't they nuke Kamabakka kingdom? And we know that Sabo just happened to be in Lulusia so he's not the reason.

OMG I JUST NOTICED A MISTAKE IN THE CHAPTER!!

According to the OP Wiki, Lulusia is in Paradise, close to Kamabakka and the G-2 Marine branch. We know for a fact that Kamabakka is in Paradise because no Strawhat went into the New World after they were scattered by Kuma at Sabaody. However, in chapter 1060 Lulusia is said to be in the New World. Is it a mistake by Oda or perhaps a retcon? I already had a friend of mine check the original chapter in japanese, and even there it's said to be a "New World" island, so it's not a translation issue!

It's not really a mistake... Lulusia could be on the other side of the grandline and that the Revs just happened to help them out

And Ace definitely searched for Blackbeard in the New World as well, not just the Paradise

We going back to Marineford again.. again! After Elbaf where we learn that the last poneglyph has been under WG control shortly after it consolidated its power and took out all meaningful resistance centuries ago. These stones which when read brand you and your island as the worst criminals to be erased, we know they cannot be destroyed by any known means but they can be moved!(jinbei bringing 1 to bigmom for example) Now the WG is incompetent sometimes yes but I say their intel has always been pretty good. Surely they must know about the road/lode poneglyphs right?

As has been pointed out already elsewhere there were 16 lightning strikes when lulusia got hit, corresponding with Doflamingo's best move the 16 holy bullets. I saw this in yt comments but what I didn't see is that Luffy rang the Ox bell at Marineford 16 times.

That bell was rung by the navy 8 times for the old year and 8 times for the new year. Kid and Killer interpreted Luffy's 16 as ringing in a new era. I'd say an island nuke being used is a new era for the current world of one piece. What other major event would count as a new era? The establishment of the world government ofcourse!

My theory is that they moved 1 road poneglyph to marineford and put the Ox bell over it! Partially as like an arrogant power move to the ancient kingdom peepz watching from heaven, Imu strike me as petty like that. Also because its a fantastic spot hidden in plain sight right center in the largest stronghold of WG military might. Connected to their other facilities aswell there is no way anyone not brainwashed by them would breakthrough and hold it long enough to be discovered let alone be deciphered. Assuming it is Uranus with the 16 rays of light, it being instrumental in defeating the Ancient kingdom and being honored in a way through the bells would make a lot of sense.

77

u/Muhellus Sep 17 '22

My crack theory is that Imu has taken Vivi and uses Uranus through her. That would mean Vivi is similar to Shirahoshi, and is capable of controlling one of the ancient weapons. Maybe Imu always had Uranus but was unable to use it until now (the last time being god's valley).

Idk if I've seen this one suggested, but Luffy's dream is to visit EVERY island out there.

Maybe even combined with the party theory it could be "I want to party on every island in the world"

This is what I was thinking, too.

I'm big on the Space theory, and my best guess as to why Roger was laughing at the One Piece is because after thinking he just got one step closer to achieving his dream by reaching Laugh Tale, he finds out that this is just a single planet in an endless sea of stars to travel and explore.

The absurdity of that, with the realization that - even with a dream as big as his - he still was thinking too small, made him burst out laughing.

No because he told Kaido he wants all of his friends to be able to eat whenever they want, and he didn’t list Kaido as one of the people who has heard his dream. Also, that’s not really that far fetched and doesn’t require being the pirate king.

5

u/CountCocofang Sep 18 '22

The bit he said to Kaido about his friends being able to eat is also just a direct reference to the conversation he had with Tama.

Back then Luffy literally said "By the time we leave this country, it'll be a place where you can eat as much as you want, every single day."

There is no deeper meaning than that, it's just closure to a promise he made during that arc.

u/Lopsided-Frame-947 Sep 19 '22

Luffy’s True Dream

This is based of a Japanese theory video on youtube (its in Japanese)

“I’m going to become the king of the pirates!” (Chapter 1)

Just like I did, I’m sure most readers would take that as Luffy’s dream. However, this could be set up purposely by Oda. For Luffy, becoming the Pirate King may be just a checkpoint for his ulterior motive.

Hints of this are hidden in chapter 585 in the flash back of Luffy, Ace, and Sabo’s childhood. In chapter 585, Luffy, Ace, and Sabo are stating their dreams and vowing to become a pirate. Firstly, Sabo stated his dream was to see the world and write a book about it.

Ace’s dream was for his life to be famous, and was for this reason he stated that he will become a pirate.

Ace and Sabo vowed there that they will become pirates, but that is simply the method they are taking to meet their ultimate goal - like a symbol. Becoming a pirate was not their true goal or their true dream.

Some examles of ulterior motives: It turned out that Ace’s true dream was to find the answer to whether he should’ve been born. It also turned out that Whitebeard’s dream was to have a family. You could even argue what Law wanted was to avenge Doflamingo.

(ASL flashback) And Luffy after his brothers, went to state his dream.

“Shishishi! All right.... well then... I’M GONNA....!!!”

Then Oda intentionally decided to cut it there; the dream Luffy stated intentionally left out.

Normally, you would think that what Luffy said there was his usual catchphrase. But it doesn’t make sense why Oda would leave it out, since we see Luffy say it all the time. It would only take at most one extra panel, so there should be no reason to leave it out.

There is also something else that contradicts this: “Master Rayleigh... There was a kid who said the same things as captain Roger! Those words, that the captain once said...!” Shanks (Chapter 506)

The thing Luffy and Roger both said, is possibly the true dream Luffy told to his brothers that day. It’s happened before, like Sanji and Zeff have said the same dream (All Blue) and now Sanji is taking on Zeff’s will.

Since “Pirate King” was the name used to call Roger AFTER he succeeded to conquer the Grand Line, Roger would not have said “I will become the Pirate King” when he became a pirate. So becoming the pirate king can’t have been Roger’s dream, and it can’t then be Luffy’s either if they both have the same dream.

So what is Luffy aiming to achieve?

His dream is to create a country of pirates.

As a child, Luffy went through a lot of harsh training by Garp. Garp likely restricted him on what he could do, and kept insisting that he should become a marine. The training was so harsh that Luffy is scared of Garp (Chapter 431), and Luffy like any child, would probably want to do what he wants to do rather than what their grandparents tell him to do - especially with the harsh training.

(Chapter 1) He then meets Shanks and his pirate crew, who tell Luffy about the freedom of being a pirate. Luffy gets attached to this idea and wants to become a pirate. A free pirate. He gets scolded by Garp who likely tells him that pirates are evil and they all get captured. He then realizes he wants a world of free pirates where everyone can be free (speculation).

He hears about the Pirate King, and being simple-minded he interprets this literally as the King of the Pirate World he dreams of. He then decides he will become the pirate king so he can create the country of pirates where everyone is free.

This is what shanks told Rayleigh as ‘the words of Roger’. A king’s job is usually to rule, of course. But the country of pirates should not have a ruler for it to really be free. So Rayleigh tested Luffy to see if he really holds to his ideas of freedom.

“The grandline is just going to keep on, surpassing your wildest imaginations! And the enemies will be strong... Can you really conquer this ultimate ocean?!”

“I don’t want to conquer anything, I just think the guy with the most freedom in this whole ocean is the pirate king!!” (Chapter 507)

Is this too much of a stretch? What do you think?

My theory is that we're going to learn that Jewelry Bonney is the Kuja Empress from one generation ago, and was the captain of the Kuja Pirates when Boa Hancock and her sisters were captured (she was captured alongisde them).

I don't really have any solid proof of this. I only theorize this because:

1- I think it's suspicious Oda waited up until right now to reveal that Shakuyaku was the empress from two generations ago. Like... why would he randomly reveal, not only that she was an empress, but that she wasn't the previous one and there's still a previous one left right before bringing Bonney back to the story again?

2- Due to Bonney's DF we can't really know how old she actually is so she could be any age.

3- That could explain what Akainu meant when he said "A cold shiver ran through me when I heard you'd run away from the Government". Maybe she couldn't escape when Fisher Tiger liberated everybody else and escaped afterwards.

4- I know Blackbeard says in that very same chapter that Bonney comes from the South Blue, but maybe the identity of Jewelry Bonney comes from the South Blue, but she doesn't. Maybe she changed her appearance when she run away from the Goverment and decided to start again in the South Blue so, in the eyes of the world, she's from there despite she being from somewhere else.

To be fair, I don't think I'm right, but I think it's fun to theorize crazy stuff some times.

i think its interesting that franky says "you have to be pirate king to make that [dream] possible"

like, what does he mean by that? when roger uttered the same dream, the title "pirate king" didnt even exist. so its weird to say that being "pirate king" is a requirement for achieving that.

especially since we dont really know what it means to be pirate king. according to luffy its just the freest person of the world. most people probably just think it is the strongest pirate. and there seems to be a consensus that whoever finds laughtale and the one piece will become pirate king. but why? almost nobody even knows what the one piece is. we dont know if it would make you stronger or more free in any sense. and we definitely dont know if the one piece will help luffy in achieving his dream.

and honestly, the title "pirate king" is mostly symbolical. its not like you are literally the ruler of all pirates (roger certainly was not), so how would that title help you achieve anything? seems to me the only difference between the pirate king and another powerful pirate (like a yonko) is just that the pirate king has found the one piece. but since we dont know what the one piece is or does, we dont know if that difference is relevant in any tangible way.

so really, what does being "Pirate king" bring with it, that would be helpful to achieve a certain goal.
