    So the Straw Hats are currently in possession of two of the four road poneglyphs (or atleast the copies). And after Wano it is almost certain that they will possess three of the four. That means they are 75% there and closer than anyone else in the world at achieving their goal.

    At some point Blackbeard too has to possess some of the road poneglyphs and he currently has none (unless he is in the possession of the fourth one). The public only has knowledge of two of the four road poneglyphs with just a few people in the know about Zou. (its unclear that Blackbeard knows about the one in Zou)

    So if Blackbeard wants to move forward and not fall behind he has to begin with the two poneglyps that reside in the heart of two Yonkou's territories. Now one popular theory is that Blackbeard will swoop in when the Pirate-Ninja-Samurai-Mink alliance defeat Kaido, kill him and steal his devil fruit and maybe even the poneglyph.

    But thats risky. From Blackbeard's perspective he can't be certain if the alliance will actually be able to beat Kaido. Even if it weakens him and his crew and Blackbeard launches an attack and wins he still risks his own crew members being killed (Yonkou don't go down without a fight).

    SO, let me present another idea. The current moment in the story presents a perfect opportunity for Blackbeard to launch an attack on Big Mom's territory and steal her poneglyph. Blackbeard as we saw recently is aware that Big Mom has left her territory to chase Luffy. She is heading to Kaido's territory and probably not alone. It is very likely that she is taking some (not all) of her strongest fighters with her which leaves Tottoland considerably weaker right now. If Blackbeard were to launch an attack on Whole Cake Island with all of his Titanic Captains and fleet not to decimate whats left of it but just for a quick find and grab with the added plus of maybe taking out some of Big Mom's best fighters then it would be a huge win for him.

    Let's also not forget that Wano is isolated and shrouded in mystery. There will be little to no news coming out from there and if Blackbeard decided to go there worst case scenario is he risks facing two Yonkou. While on the other hand Whole Cake Island has got alot of press lately so information is just there to use and its Queen has left it with along with some of its strongest protectors.

    So what do you all think. Is Blackbeard going to take advantage of the chaos and attack WCI? Will he join in on the fun on Wano or just wait and watch? Any way it goes the One Piece world only seems to get more interesting.

    Just discussed about it with my friend recently. Blackbeard seems fall behind Luffy in term of road poneglyph' possession. We don't know he already have it or not, but eventhough if he had it, he can't decipher it because Luffy have Robin meanwhile BB have nobody to decipher it.

    He might send Laffitte to Whole Cake Island to create a rubbing of the Road Ponelglyph that Big Mum has in her possession.

    He might also send Shiliew as well since his Suke-Suke no Mi is ideal for sneaking in, but there's still likely to be some degree of risk in giving him a very important mission.

    As for what Blackbeard himself does, I think he'll bide his time and wait for the right moment to make his move, which I lean more towards heading towards Onigashima/Wano than Whole Cake Island/Totto Land.

    Yeah, the possibility is there, but i still think if he make a movement, wano will be the destination. Going to wano is like two bird one stone situation for him, he has a chance to eliminate a lot of PK throne contender, get kaido's weaponry and road poneglyph, also powerful DF (dont forget Burgess had an interest in luffy's df too).

    I'm sure he has some sort of plan to figure out how to read the poneglyphs. He planned out so many things do you really think he doesn't have some sort of idea of how to decipher them?

    Blackbeard is probably a member of the Three-eyed tribe and can read poneglyphs

    An invasion on Whole Cake Island means destruction on the BMP and their Devil Fruits.

    This...is actually pretty clever. Big Mom's obsession with getting back at Luffy will lead to her downfall.

    She heads to Wano leaving Whole Cake exposed and Blackbeard attacks while it's defenseless.

    This would also cause the people of Whole Cake to lose faith in her completely which would further the destruction of her reputation.

    It would also serve to make Blackbeard a monumental threat. Everyone is anticipating that he will show up and steal Kaidou's DF at the end of Wano but imagine he reveals that he's also attacked Big Mom's territory and stolen Poneglyphs on top of that? he'd be even closer to One Piece. What if in order to read them he kidnaps Pudding as well?

    Blackbeard could come to Wano and capture Robin with all knowledge about Poneglyphs plus steal copies of Road Poneglyphs that Luffy got- why he need look for only one poneglyph when he could just get em all at once?:vonFlame:

    This is something I've been thinking about since the first time we got to know the third eye's powers. I'm sure Pudding won't miss this role in the story and the Straw Hats don't need it. Since Blackbeard is the only other emperor expected to reach the final step, Pudding becomes quite a great potential asset.

    Interesting idea that would give the "three theme" a new layer. We've never seen him with his forehead completely visible, right? Problem is we may have seen quite a good portion of it and I'm not sure if an eye fits there.

    Blackbeard's have been the only real pirates in this story, and they are good doing it, i really hope that last big fight will be Luffy and blackbeard one on one, anyway, epic would be them crushing wano after Luffy epicly beats kaido, robbing kaido's poneyglif and the copy the straw hats has, kidnaping robbin at the way out and thanking and exausted and unable to move luffy...
    Just to make more spicy, probably killing someone, jinbei still has that deathflag i say...

    The three eyed people can just hide it in plain sight, they don't need to cover up their foreheads

    There is no need to launch a large scale attack. Devon and Shiryuu's df hint at infiltration for acquiring the poneglyphs.

    Has this been stated? Pudding covered it with her fringe, she literally needed to cover up her forehead.

    yes it was stated back in wci arc. It was implied that the 3 eyed tribe's power is somewhat similar to the VoiceOfAllThings... But with the eye of course. BigMom said she was waiting for pudding to unlock her true power in order to read the ponegliphs. (This is why BigMom wasn't chasin down robin most likely)

    Again, when was it stated that they can physically hide the third eye without something like a hat or a fringe in Pudding's case?

    He is still gonna sit back and wait to see what happens he doesn't like to directly get involved so he will only act when the moment is perfect

    Yeah, a closed eye isn't an indiscernible eye. If you lack a proper answer better go play somewhere else.
