Can You Skip One Piece Filler Episodes?
A filler is an episode that is unrelated to the story's progress. As such, there are no character developments and no significant changes in these episodes. Sometimes, filler episodes simply contain flashbacks or recaps.
This is why fillers are safe to skip. Viewers get everything from the main story, although they still have the option to watch them if they enjoy seeing their favorite characters.
In the case of One Piece, the fillers add to the immense number of episodes to watch, causing some interested viewers to opt out of watching the anime at all.
By skipping these episodes, viewers can focus on the main storyline and even catch up to the latest season if they watch continuously.

An example of this is the Legendary Log! Red-Haired Shanks! (Episodes 1030-1031). It connects the One Piece Red movie to the anime for added continuity, although these episodes are not canon.
Once you can determine which is a filler episode and which is a canon episode, watching One Piece will be smooth and easy.
You can always go back and watch the filler episodes whenever you want to or when you miss the Straw Hats.
