She’s the daughter of a Yonko and has read Oden’s journal, knows all about the dawn and so on, are we really going to pretend that she’s somehow unaware of how important Laugh Tale is?
If she knows how gamechanging raftel is, world-wise,all the more reason as to why she can't join..
And the reason is the same as to why Rayleigh didn't let them know anything. They need to see for themselves some things and reach their own conclusion.
1.Oden's journal says too much if that's the case.
2.Yamato is following to a T what Oden has said.
 
Where is the Wano's guardian who swore to protect the next shogun with their life is really needed
a) A near yonkou level crew where the only role she can fulfill is that of a fighter, role already filled by Zoro.
b) A starving and in ruin Wano with an unexperienced shogun directly under the threat of the WG where the strongest fighters are YC3 level at best.

Yamato won't help the straw hats achieve their journey faster or anything, she has no useful skills. Powerlevel is something that can be easily filled with allies, which SHs make every arc.

But Momo? He needs help. And while scabbards are brave they're simply nowhere near Yamato level.

Every single story with a defined deity, guardian or some spirit tied to something (country, land or world, person) makes it clear that this people leaving will doom it
But somehow Oda will subvert this and make the dog guardian abandon the post even after putting l flashbacks showing how she genuinely has connection with the people of this the place and even implied a desire to be seen as one of them.
Yamato doesn't only want to see the World, she wants to protect and free Wano, and this chapter confirmed that unlike what it could have been believed, kicking Kaido out doesn't mean the country will be in peace.

People keeps bringing the Oden parallel, but Oden filled an actual role on Roger ship that allowed him to complete this journey. Robin fills that role for Luffy.
 
With cp0 around, planning to take over wano after kaido defeated. Somehow, it makes me think about alabasta

I mean if the reverie incident is a conflict between cobra and WG, I think WG could easily take over alabasta because they denied alabasta king and maybe vivi become an ex-princess and join SHs again 👀
 
@Garp the Fist How do you imagine Wano's borders will open?

Do you think at the end of the arc Momo will just shout "Wano is now open" and all will be well? A country that has been isolated for 800 years won't just automatically have people flooding in as if by magic, so what's the deal in your opinion?

Also what do you think will be Momo's mission that is absolutely imperative and is the reason he can't die? Keeping in mind that Oden also had this same mission.

Yeah I was also thinking about this, the red herring here could be: people are asking whether Yamato is needed to stay in Wano to protect against the WG, when the truth of the situation is that the WG is making moves on Wano and Alabasta, and the only solution is to take the fight to them.

Yeah but the thing about protecting country is not a simple matter especially against WG. We knew that CP0 was asking wano to open its border but got rejected by orochi who has kaido on his back.



There's a lot of question about that, will cp0 be deceived by momo dragon? and will they be afraid of momo? Is kaido equals to momo in cp0 eyes? or maybe kaido offspring existence can help to scare them? Will opening wano declaration stop WG desire?

It keeps coming back to what it actually means to open the country. It's not like the world government is afraid of guards stationed at the ports going "sorry, you can't come here", there has to be something more significant underlying.

I doubt they will be deceived by Momonosuke's dragon form, as they noted that it was fighting with Luffy against Kaido. It makes a lot more sense to me that Momonosuke could say "you can't topple this country, I have Strawhat himself, the one who defeated Kaido, at my back!" instead of "you've never heard of her before, but Kaido's werewolf daughter is strong as heck, don't you dare come here!"
 
Now that CP0, the Gorosei lapdogs, are involved, there's no way the Revolutionary Army won't get involved in Wano...

And the reason is the same as to why Rayleigh didn't let them know anything.
Rayleigh never prevented them to know what's there, he even offered to tell them right away... It was Robin and Luffy's choice...

Every single story with a defined deity, guardian or some spirit tied to something (country, land or world, person) makes it clear that this people leaving will doom it
Luffy the Sun Wukong (as stated by Hyo) and Zoro the dragon slayer should stay then... :milaugh:

Exactly. Momo can say that but that only makes wano as a country that is affiliated with a pirate. Which country who wants to be a friend with a country that affiliated with pirate who is not an ouka shicibukai? Then what's the point with opening border?

I mean you are ignoring just how popular and how many people Luffy has reached.

Countries and Major Cities with strong ties/favorability to Luffy:
- Arabasta
- Drum Kingdom
- Water 7
- Fishmen Island
- Dressrosa
- Kano Country
- ETC

This also ignores countries even in the real world have constant talk, diplomatic relationships, trade, etc with countries that they have many disagreements with.

Don't forget even Fishmen Island was/is protected by a Pirates Flag and still participates and deals with countries in the Reveire.

Its no issue.

He cautioned not to . He simply wouldn't insisted if in the end she wanted to learn it.

Yes they can have relationship with wano. But it should be in secret. Interacting with a country that denied WG might cause them a big problem

Fishmen island protected by pirate flag because they are not connected with WG yet (because the letter from WG is being kept by hody's man). When reverie it is garp the marine hero who is escort them now. But yes FI is secretly protected by SHs too without WG knows
