    No way that Robin is the only person that can read porneglyphs.
    Plus, I still don't believe that the porneglyphs will be the only way to Raftel.

    BECAUSE AT EARLIER YEARS THE ONLY ORGANIZATION THAT KNOWS ROBIN ABLE TO READ PHONEGLIPGS ARE THE CP AND WORLD GOVERNMENT. THE REST OF THE WORLD ONLY KNEW THAT SHE IS THE DEVIL CHILD WHO HAS DEVIL FRUIT THAT COULD SANK 4 BATTLESHIPS, BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT HIDE THE FACT THAT THEY DID BUSTER CALL ON INNOCENT SCIENTIST AND THIS 8 yo. ALSO THE GOVERNMENT DONT WANT ANY CRIMINAL TO KNOW THAT SHE CAN READ PHONEGILPH SO NO ONE CAN EXPLOIT HER .

    THE ONLY BOUNTY THAT SHE HAD SHOWED HER FACE WAS WHEN SHE WAS ONLY 8. SO ALL THE TIME BEFORE ENIES LOBBY SHE WAS BASICALLY UNRECOGNIZABLE BESIDE BY AOKIZI AND CROCODILE. ONLY AFTER ENIES LOBBY THAT HER FACE HAS BEEN UPGRADED IN THE BOUNTY, THEN SHE IS HUNTED AGAIN BUT FORTUNATELY KUMA SENT HER TO DRAGON.

    Now i hope no one will say it s a plothole furthermore.

    They have their method, maybe.
    WB - Not interest
    Shanks - Roger crew
    Big Mom - Pudding
    Kaido - Oden, momo/ kouzuki ; just wants war
    BB - 'let One nearly reach raftel, then beat and steal it' / beat shanks then force him to lead the way

    Gokou - Robin

    If robin is the only way, Yonkou not really recognized her.

    maybe becouse they know they need to get the 4 roads poneigriff first, and the smarter one of all gonna be Teach who 's gonna let the Strawhat get them first and then he will still then all in one go while kidnapping Robin as well! lol at least that is what i am expecting from him

    It was said in Zou arc, that once the yonkou's are ready and have all poneglyphs they will come for Robin, and then Robin said that she is not afraid because she has her friends to protect her.

    Its 2 their benefit 2 be ignorrent of the void century as that is a gaurantee of being targeted by the WG, so amassing poneglyphs and keeping them from more ambitious pirates actually benefits the WG

    You saying the Yonko don't have info of what happens in the first half of the grand line? or that their influence can't reach there?

    High tiers were already aware that their captain Mugiwara is small fry no more, unlesss your name is Kaidou, Big Mom and Teach.

    If others will kidnap Robin, they know they need to fight Mugiwara first.
    Simple as kidnapping Robin will just make enies lobby 2.0

    OP story still have to many plot to exploit and i think repeating Robin rescue mission will not be one of them.

    Im just embracing what god Oda got in store for us for the remaining 20% os the story.

    And how exactly do the Yonko's know about a woman in the first half of the Grandline who can read poneglyphs? Robin isn't running around bragging about it... Crocodile damn sure ain't telling anyone...

    Now let's look at the sequence of events that transpired after Alabasta....

    Straw Hats leave Alabasta, and head to Sky Island.....

    After Sky Island they make a brief stop at Water 7, where Robin is taken to Enies Lobby, which is a Marine stronghold...

    After Enies Lobby they end up in the Florian Triangle....

    After the Florian Triangle they arrive in Sabaody for a few hours, before she gets sent to Tequila Wolf, and is picked up by the Revolutionaries where she spends two years...

    Now explain to me where in this time frame do the Yonko's learn about Nico Robin and her ability to read Poneglyphs, and are capable of knowing exactly where she is at when it's a Sky Island, a Marine stronghold, or a mysterious stretch of Ocean that thousands of ships gets lost in?

    The New World is pretty far away from Paradise and the Straw Hats never stayed in one location for more than half a day... So the Yonkos find her how exactly? And again, that's providing they even knew about her ability to read the Poneglyphs, because in the eyes of the World, the Scholars of Ohara were all wiped out 20 years ago...

    the WG publicly denounced Ohara and gave Nico Robin a public bounty. people knew who Robin was. its not like ohara was straight up wiped from people's memory. maybe the yonko didn't know she specifically could read poneglyphs, but they knew the government considered her a threat even after the buster call. yonko should be smart enough to put 2 and 2 together, and realize hmmm maybe this lone survivor of an archaeological society has some valuable information...

    just another example of information in OP world being vastly under-circulated - its not a plothole but definitely a weak plot point

    Few Reasons:
    1- Plot until SHs is ready for that kind of confrontation just like how Sanji's fake poster of Duval was plot to save SHs from facing Germa and Big Mom while they are in their pre-timeskip level!

    2- Oda intends to use it in the future as Inuarashi and Nekumamushi said that once she finally reads the 4th and final poneglyph, all yonko and other strong pirates would try to get her! That's another reason, since obtaining Robin now is not gonna help them since at best, they only have one copy! and to get the others, they will have to begin huge wars and fights with other Yonko to get the other three! Then, Robin would be useful to them! So, they are still at the war and fight stage!

    3- Oda does not want Robin to be the only focus of every and each arc, he's got other SHs to focus on and other sideline characters who also he wants to flesh out! So, he intends to have Robin have normal screen time like all other SHs, however to increase a lot during an arc focused on her! And he wants it to be after she collects the 4 copies! And not in every single arc, she's being kidnapped and saved, kidnapped and saved, kidnapped and saved! That's way too boring!

    In fact, I like his approach the last two arcs where he had Big Mom rely on Pudding's eye instead of Robin, while Kaido was having Oden and torturing him and seeking Momo as his way to know the secrets of the world instead of same plot of Robin kidnapped used up so many times till a point of boredom Lol

    The WG didn't exactly write "Key to reaching Raftel" on her bounty poster, if they even know about that.

    Not everyone knows that Robin can read the poneglyph. Only Goroseis, admirals, Cobra and now dukes.

    Previously only Goroseis knows that Oharas can read poneglyph thats why they order buster call to kill them all.

    In Zou arc , Neko implies that when people who are interested in knowing void history comes to know about your ability (to read), then they all will try to snatch you.

    I said it in a other thread, i hope blackbeard's are going to crash wano at the very end of Luffy beating kaido and kidnapp Robin.
    That would suit them well.

    They simply didn't knew much about her knowledge (could she, a child, really decipher the poneglyphs?) and her whereabouts (was she even alive?)... even the WG didn't knew about Robin's status until Crocodile's downfall, as her bounty poster wasn't updated until after the Enies Lobby incident.

    they dont need any archaelogical information though. If they dont know of her ability to read poneglyphs, they obviously wouldnt care.Also pretty sure its not general public knowledge that she is from ohara, they also gave her the bounty for destroying battleships, not for being able to read the poneglyphs.
