Shanks has a watchful eye out for Teach. Although exact events are unknown, Shanks previously admitted to Whitebeard that his facial scar came from a direct attack from Teach. Shanks himself seems to know the potential danger Blackbeard represents is greater than that of anyone else.

Having already proclaimed “his” era is beginning, unveiling the new members of his crew and demonstrating control over two Devil Fruits, Teach said he had achieved his goal for the time being, while also knowing he was not ready to face the Yonko.
