One Piece Timeskip Explained
One Piece timeskip starts after the end of Marineford Saga and after the Ace-Sabo-Luffy flashback. Marineford saga began with the utter defeat of Strawhats in Sabaody Archipelago and getting scattered by Kuma, and ended with the death of Ace in Marineford war. Luffy himself realizes that they are weak to go to the New World and based on the advice of Rayleigh decided to take a two-year break from their adventure.
Luffy went to Marineford one more time and rang the bell of Ox sixteen times. While doing so he had the message “
3D2Y” in his hand, thus giving the message to take a two-year break to all other Strawhats. During the timeskip, all the Strawhats trained to get stronger and the world at large changed greatly during this period.
