...that's basically what Roger did with shanks and buggy. Putting buggy aside, just take a look at shanks. Here we see a kid wielding a sword, that probably wasn't all that strong at the time, and now he's a freaking Yonkou. If this monosuke kid could learn to control his DF power, and add his samurai techs also, he might be a decent supporting character.
I'd be interested to see if chopper could put his medical knowledge to use to see why exactly the DF that kid ate was a dud and if he can come up with an cure to stabilize his powers, or a Rumble Ball that could alter them further.
yes he did .. but by that time (i might be wrong) he might have been a powerful pirate like WB was or he was already the pirate king... either way he was powerful and then he took on apprentice... luffy is still a rookie here even though he is powerful. so right now its not the time for him to teach other kids
