When these 4 red poneglyphs come together, they will divulge the information to help the pirates reach Laugh Tale. This is the final island in the Grand Line & also the resting place for the popular One Piece treasure.
However, Luffy isn’t the only pirate aiming for the treasure. Trailing him are his fellow pirates and the most fearsome ones at it. Apart from Blackbeard, Yonkos, and Shanks, he is also trailed by Eustass Kidd & Trafalgar D. Water Law.
