The A-grade Pocket given to Baam

Pockets (포켓, poket, "Pocket") are devices that provide a variety of functions that aid Regulars and Rankers in the Tower.

About

Pockets are currently manufactured by the Workshop. Pockets were first made by Macseth, the Great Father of the Workshop. They are made from high purity Suspendium so they are capable of floating in areas of high shinsu density.

  • Hansung's customized pocket.
  • Augusgus' customized pocket. A scroll.

Pockets are classified by their ranks from E-grade to A-grade. An A-grade Pocket is extremely expensive. Every Regular receives an E-grade Pocket when entering the Tower. This E-grade Pocket can be used to make the Shinsu Contract with the Floor Guardians till the 40th Floor when they start climbing the Tower. Pockets come in different designs. The basic design of Pockets are round-shaped like a ball. You can purchase custom Pockets from The Workshop. Both Yu Han Sung and Augusgus possesses customized pockets. Pockets have different functions depending on their rank. The biggest difference is "the number of languages" that can be understood.[1]

Abilities

  • Calling Function
  • Wangnan calling Nia
  • Maschenny calling Yuri
  • Points transfer

A Pocket enables the wearer to understand the different languages spoken in the Tower by translating them all into Macsethian. It appears the Pocket possesses a number of other abilities such as a timer and communication function.[2]

When told "Invisible Mode", the Pocket can be concealed from view. And with the command "Visible mode" it will once again become visible. It seems that the Pocket must be invisible mode to form a contract with a Guardian, which is initiated with "Contract with the Guardian". When the Contract is completed, the Pocket will then display "Contract complete".[3]

For all Regulars, Pockets are very important as they allow contracts to be formed with the Guardian on each Floor. This is because every Position has to learn how to use shinsu.[4]

Notes and Trivia

  • Although Lighthouses can be used as Pockets in emergencies, they don't have the same level of simultaneous translation functionalities that Pockets have. It is more a symbolism problem than a function problem. A Pocket, in a way, is a kind of 'license' that confirms one's status as a Regular.[9]
