Overview

Pocket D is a first rate night club occupying a self-contained pocket dimension created from nothing by DJ Zero. Pocket D is a no-fire zone where Heroes and Villains can mingle safely. Pocket D opened up after the hero-only Paragon Dance Party shut down.

Apart from the Rikti War Zone and Cimerora, Pocket D is one of the only other zones in which Heroes and Villains can team together. Several special events have introduced special missions that could be run by mixed teams of heroes and villains, including a few missions that required teammates from both sides.

The Tiki Room and the Ski Chalet are both located in Pocket D. As of Issue 25, the Hero Vault Reserve closed and was replaced with a suite of Architect Entertainment consoles and teleporters. (The Villain Vault Reserve still functions for Heroes.)

Pocket D also features the Monkey Fight Club, Arena terminals, and a branch of the Vault Reserve.

Events

Pocket D has been a key location during several special events, although on Homecoming it is more likely Echo Plaza would be used.

Cuppathon
The farewell party for the widely admired CuppaJo had several events in Pocket D, including the CuppaCloning costume contest.
Anniversary Events
Many anniversary events include a party with Red Names in Pocket D, whether on the "Live Servers" or the Training Room (Test Server). Themes may or may not be in effect; when a theme is announced, there is typically a costume contest with prizes given out by the developers.
Valentine's Event
The 2006 Valentine's Event introduced missions from contacts that temporarily appeared in Pocket D. For the first time ever, Heroes and Villains could team up. Every year since, the Valentine's content has repeated, sometimes with expansions on the details.
Winter Event
The 2006 Winter Event introduced the Ski Chalet, from which Father Time asked both heroes and villains to save Baby New Year. Heroes and villains could team together for his missions. Every year since, the Winter content has repeated, often with expansions on the details.

  • Trina the Body Sculptress - tailor in the Tiki Lounge

Temporary

During the Valentine's Events, there are two additional bartenders in Pocket D who sell temporary powers.

  • Chilly - sells Dimension Drop temporary powers to heroes.
  • Dram - sells Dimension Drop temporary powers to villains.

The Winter Event sees the Candy Keeper return to sell badges, temporary powers, and costume pieces in exchange for Candy Cane salvage.

Neighborhoods

There are no neighborhoods explicitly marked on the Pocket D map. However, there are a few areas that are recognized as being different.

Big Time (-162.5, 20.0, -1362.0)[Copy]

The 'Fambly', as Joe Young would call them, had been dipping their fingers into the RMFC for some time. As luck would have it, DJ Zero offered Joe and Cornelius a chance to expand their business venture. The Monkey Fight Club Arena and Pocket D are a one-two punch that will certainly be a knockout!
