    Think about it, Robin has been famous for long long time before the series started becase she can read poneglyph. Crocodile recruited her so he can have access to Pluton. But why yonkos, who are already well aware of poneglyphs, even road poneglyphs, aren't after her? Kaido even executed Oden for refusing reading poneglyphs, and detailing Raftel for him.

    They don't know it probably. Maybe Robin once becomes a target.

    But apart from that, there are various ways to decipher the Poneglyps. Kaido found a way (needs to get Momo), Big Mom found a way (needs to use Pudding's third eye). Big fishes will find a way.

    Nah something could have been shown, they din't have to succeed but it could have been shown a kidnapping attempt before time skip and after time skip.

    This what I would call plot hole more than anything or it did happen, but Robin was so good at been a shady spy that she manage to escape each time which doesn't make sense, if she joined Crocodile, a Yonko would have been even more perfect to protect herself from the WG and to find some friends...

    The answer is simple. Robin is uncatchable. She has been living under the radar for most of her life.

    May b because none of them have all poneglyph
    WB - wasnt interested
    RH - Seems not interested in finding Raftel
    Kaido - Don't have all poneglyph and in settlement because of WB
    BM - Don't have all poneglyph and have Pudding.

    In short even if they get to know how to go to raftel...You still can't go without beating other 3 . Or you will need overwhelming advantage over them..

    Roger was surrounded by entire fleet and strong enemy...He was just lucky to survive..

    It was said that Pudding's tribe can activate the ability to decipher the poneglyps with their third eyes. Somewhere. Dunno the exact chapter. Maybe Wiki knows it.

    Well it said that she might be able to do it if she awaken the true power of the eye or something. Going after Robin who is been hunted by the WG for been a suspect of been able to read the poneglyphs well I believe still is worth the shot... just in case Pudding never awakens her third eyes powers...

    WG & Marines admitted they didn't know about Baroque Works so automatically they didn't know Robin was them
    And when Revos rescued her after Sabaody Incident, she asked them same question: "Why didn't you search for me before"
    They said the same thing, they were unaware of Baroque Works existence

    In other words, Robin was completely hidden under Crocodile's Umbrella, no one knew where she was
    After Alabasta, Luffy took her and when WG discovered her, Enies Lobby Saga happened
    After that she was sent away by Kuma, and then she was hiding with Revos
    And now she is with Luffy protecting her

    So Story is well explained and Robin was always hiding, no one was able to get to her

    Lets break this down:
    -Whitebeard: Had no intreats in being Pirate King and watched over the throne (no one could get to it without going through him)

    -Shanks: While not stated I imagine Shanks has no intreats in being Pirate King, just likes being a pirate but he is making sure/want the next king to represent what it means to be a pirate (Luffy)

    -Kaido: Conquered Wano, 20 years ago heard the ones that disappeared would come back in like 20 years so bids his time and guess what he got it when they came back and has since searched for them (If not the teachings were started in Wano so he could search for those).

    -Big Mom: Has a daughter from the rare and mysterious three-eyed tribe that once truly awakened gain powers that will allow Pudding to read the Glyphs just got to bid time for Pudding.

    -Blackbeard: Man of a thousand plans who been in the shadows for years, studies history and is Luffy's dark reflection and didn't move till he got the Yami Yami no Mi. He has his own ways I imagine to read the Glyphs inline with his plans(like VOATs)

    -Robin herself stayed hidden and ran when she could, basically she was always on her feet till Croc and later Luffy.

    And who is to say the other yonkos didn't try to tracker her down?

    Basically all the Yonkos had ways if they wanted without Robin and even then until Whitebeard fell they could only go so far, once he died the state of the world changed.

    It makes very little sense that since childhood Robin was able to remain hidden from the 4 most influential and powerful characters in the series...

    Robin was in the underworld in the Paradise while Yonkos were in the New World. Yonko have found another methods to read the Poneglyphs. So to go back to the Paradise just to get Robin is a waste of time. But now that Robin is in the New World, I see Yonkos, especially BB trying to capture Robin.

    What good will having Robin will do when none of the yonkous have all the road pgs? Their first priority is to get all road pgs which isn't possible because it involves going against other yonkous.

    BM can find about sanji training at kamabaka and find people connections
    Kaido has Intels

    Let's just say... It's plot
    Because they all want to be pk but they don't even care to get robin !

    There is one more possibility that without other poneglyphs there is no use of getting robin when they can get whenever they want and getting other poneglyphs means clashing with other emperors and also WG won't stay quiet if the balance starts crumbling.

    I've been saying this since the start, but each Yonko HAS THEIR OWN METHODS

    Aside from Robin each Yonko has their own outlier that allows them to be able to translate or find Raftel after they have all 4 Road Poneglyphs.

    -Luffy has Robin
    -Big Mom has Pudding

    Kaido, Shanks, Blackbeard don't have known methods, but Shanks has presumably been to Wano himself so.....

    Its not revealed yet but as the four closest pirates to the One Piece, they've been around before Robin..... and after Ohara's Genocide.... They've got their own methods lol.

    This was mentioned during Zou arc that Robin is going to be in grave danger soon.
    As pointed out earlier, Big Mom has Pudding and so she's hoping for her to get ability activated.
    Kaido has his stronghold in Wano. The country where Poneglyphs originated. Kaido might have someone with him who can decipher them. The captured prisoner in quarry could be someone like that.
    Shanks and Whitebeard were probably already aware of Void Century and aren't interested in One Piece.
    As of Blackboard, he might not be aware of Robin. World government wouldn't want to reveal about Robin and her ability and thus by extension Void Century. That's why they called Devil's child instead.
    But War for Robin is definilty on it's way.
