Chapter 170 is titled "It Begins".
Jango's Dance Paradise Vol. 35: "Might as Well Use Hypnotism to Forget This Friendship: 1... 2..."
Reasoning that the two cannot be friends as they are supposed to be enemies, Jango prepares to hypnotize them both to forget their friendship.
After defeating the Baroque Works Billions, Pell tries to save Vivi who is attacked by Miss All Sunday. But he is no match against her Hana Hana no Mi powers. After defeating the Guard captain, Miss All Sunday forces the Alabasta princess to come with her at Crocodile's hideout.
Meanwhile the Straw Hats, still in their cage, do not take their situation very seriously, angering Nami but amusing the Baroque Works leader, Crocodile. When Vivi appears, she finds herself unable to control her rage at the sight of her enemy and tries to attack him, but she is powerless against the sand man who ate the Suna Suna no Mi. In front of a desperate princess and her imprisoned friends, Crocodile announces the beginning of his plan in order to destroy Alabasta: Operation Utopia starts at seven o'clock.
Miss All Sunday confronts Vivi and Pell, and is promptly attacked by Vivi for killing Igaram but to no avail. Miss All Sunday then "impales" Vivi with her hand, which enrages Pell and he attacks but it is no use against Miss All Sunday's devil fruit ability. She then explains that she ate the Hana Hana no Mi a devil fruit which grants her the ability to sprout limbs, she then says that she has no more time to waste on him which angers Pell and he attacks but it is useless and he goes down easily. When Vivi arrives at Crocodile's lair she attacks him but due to his devil fruit ability granted to him by the Suna Suna no Mi the attack goes right through him. He then remarks it is time for the plan to begin, which Miss All Sunday confirms as it is past seven o'clock.
- Miss All Sunday is revealed to have eaten the Hana Hana no Mi.
- Crocodile is revealed to have eaten the Suna Suna no Mi.
- Crocodile's Operation Utopia begins at 7:00 AM.
