How does Oda do it without it looking like an asspull or making the flying six look weak. For example, Page One, who is likely the weakest member, was eating RS Sanji’s attacks and recovered quickly based off of what we know. If the other members are similar if not superior, wouldn’t that make the six, and Sanji too, look bad?
Pleasurers are those who ate a Smile Fruit and got no powers only side-effects as Killer was fed a defective Smile fruit so, yes he is technically a pleasurer.
Doesn't change the fact he is still a member of Worst Generation.
He created a power up based on what he saw from CP9, but it doesn’t apply to all characters. Usopp himself got a power up and still couldn’t defeat a CP9 member. So it’s not a guarantee. Chopper and Brook have already shown the extent of their power in whole cake island, they could get haki out of nowhere maybe. But we assume that the flying 6 have haki already like the veterans of Big Mom’s crew do.
