An ender pearl is an item which is used to teleport.
Endermen drop 0–1 ender pearl when killed.
Ender pearls can be found in 23.3% of stronghold altar chests in stacks of 1.
To throw an ender pearl, press use, and the player character will teleport to its impact location, consuming the ender pearl, and dealing 5 () 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 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.
Ender pearls have a 5% chance to spawn endermites when used.

- 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.
- It is possible to spawn a thrown ender pearl with the ID 14, 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".
