An ender pearl is a smooth, green item which is used to teleport and make the eye of ender.



Endermen drop 0–1 ender pearl when killed.

Natural generation[edit]

Ender pearls can be found in 23.3% of stronghold altar chests in stacks of 1.

In Bedrock Edition, they can be found in 22.6% of stronghold altar chests in stacks of 1.

A trapped chest always containing 2 ender pearls can be found in woodland mansions.


Villager clerics will sell ender pearls for 4–7 emeralds per pearl as one of their tier 3 trades.


To throw an ender pearl, press use, and the player character will teleport to where it lands, consuming the ender pearl, and dealing 5 (Heart.svgHeart.svgHalf Heart.svg) damage to the user. Wearing armor enchanted with Protection and/or Feather Falling reduces the damage taken from the ender pearl. With enough protection and enough pearls, one could travel a long distance very quickly. Ender pearls function in Creative mode.

Ender pearls can travel about 30 meters when thrown straight up and about 50 meters forward when thrown at a 40° angle.

Ender pearls collide with tripwire, cobwebs, vines, grass, dead bushes, ferns, flowers, all sapling types, all mushrooms types, all minecart types, boats, nether portals, and end portals.

Ender pearls which fall into the void do not trigger the player to teleport at all.

Ender pearls have a cooldown of 1 second before they can be used again. The cooldown is shown by a white overlay on the ender pearl in the hotbar.

Ender pearls can be thrown into End gateways to reach the outer islands of the End.

Spawning endermites[edit]

Ender pearls have a 5% chance to spawn endermites when thrown.

Issues relating to "Ender Pearl" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.


  • Ender pearls can be used to teleport/move through non-solid blocks by pressing against the blocks and using the ender pearl at the player's feet until the player goes through.[4]
  • It is possible to spawn a thrown ender pearl using commands, but it does not teleport. This will only display the ender pearl sprite and disappear instantly.
  • If the player throws an ender pearl and then dies before impact, the pearl disappears and the player is not teleported.
  • If the player throws an ender pearl in survival mode and changes to creative mode before the pearl lands, the player is still teleported.
  • The player is teleported if they throw an ender pearl and enter the Nether before it lands. The pearl is not lost if an Ender Pearl is thrown into a nether portal and the player travels through the portal, the pearl will appear and land and teleport the player as if you had just thrown it.
  • If multiple ender pearls are thrown in succession, the player can only be hurt once from fall damage within about a one second span.
  • If a player dies from ender pearl teleportation, the death message will say: "<player> hit the ground too hard".
  • Ender pearls have a small cone of fire; if you throw them straight up, they will not all follow the same path.
