Double chests?[edit]

When I Placed a chest on a block then I placed another beside it, It didn't work. Help fix this bug? Minecraftaddict154 09:35, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

This isn't a bug, Mojang and 4JStudios (Mojang Dev partners), have not yet added this into the game.

Please fix this before everyone reads it.--DiamondHand 22:25, 17 September 2013 (UTC)


I have noticed that in recent versions of the pocket edition zombies have swinging arm animations when attacking. Anyone else notice? Anyone know when this was added? MrAwesome888 21:41, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

In 6.1 I think-- 05:49, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Data values[edit]

On the data values page for pocket edition, it shows several blocks that aren't green, and therefore should be available in Pocket Lite. In my inventory, there is only 28 available items. Am I missing something? -- Numbermaniac - T- C 06:23, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Duplicating my map need help!!![edit]

Hey guys' I have this really cool completely covered map on my mates iphone that ive borrowed for a year and now he wants it back :/. I was just wondering if anyone knew how i can copy that map on to my ipod because i dont want to loose it!-- 11:58, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Well, the two best options are, to my current knowledge, host a game on his iPhone and there is a Copy World option in the Game Menu when you press pause. Or use the same seed and replicate it. The problem is you'd either have to redo all or most of it with the "Copy and Paste" option.

2553399 Woo 04:27, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

You can also use iExplorer to go into MCPE's data, then copy the world into your device.-- 23:31, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Update 0.7.0[edit]

I updated my minecraft PE today and went to smelt some iron on a new farm house. I couldn't go into the bottom box where you put the wood or coal. I couldn't smelt anything. It's a big part and needs to be fixed. I hope it gets fixed


-- 03:48, 1 July 2013 (UTC)You can't breed animals or have them follow you. I've read on many many many websites that you should add that to the game please do.



Fire is sort of the problem because I think there might be a decoding error and so I think that the creators will make a better solution to solve the problem. On the other hand there is a way to fix the problem that way is you should restart your device you could get it to work.

ScaredLemming4 --


My suggestion on breading is that we should wait until the beta version comes out because there is a lot more to the game then just breading. Like redstone I wish it could have come out this update but because of the technical problems it could not happen. That brings me to another thing which is that it could have a lot of bugs and it might crash the game. So would you want that to happen or would you want to wait until the creator get things situated.


Missing Blocks[edit]

There should be a list of blocks/items currently not in PE, and a list of blocks/items currently in PE - don't know if it should be in the trivia, or instead of the blocks/items section, or what.

I think it should be in the trivia section, like:

  • Redstone dust, along with all redstone machinery, are not in PE. (However, doors are.) Neither are Ender Pearls, Eyes of Ender, End Portal Frames, or End Portals. Neither are these blocks: blah, blah, blah and blah-blah.
  • Blue roses, invisible bedrock, and blah blah blah are currently only in PE. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 09:45, 22 July 2013‎(UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
Interestingly, I have recently posted in the Community Portal about a possible solution for this, which involves all Edition-specific info, not just for the Pocket Edition. Your feedback on my suggestion would be helpful. AugurUser_talk:Augurnz 10:45, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Redstone Ore[edit]

Just out of curiosity, why would they put redstone ore in the game if you dont get anything from it?

0.8.0 Update[edit]

Someone please update the PE Wiki page so I can read stuff about 0.8.0, thanks.

Unavailability for the demo version[edit]

Since the demo version of MCPE has now removed from the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore, should we still keep the information about it or remove it?

--Malaygamer97 (talk) 15:41, 17 October 2013 (UTC)Malaygamer97

I can't find any announcement about when or why the demo was removed from app stores (aside from presumably being too outdated), but I don't see a reason to keep links to something that is no longer available. -- Orthotopetalk 20:59, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Suggestion for getting torches without mining for coal when you are first getting started.[edit]

First harvest a tree. Then craft wooden planks to make a crafting table. Then make one pick axe and dig stairs to get some stone. Before the pick axe breaks, go and craft the stone into a furnace. Then, harvest another tree. Do not turn this into wooden planks. You should put the pick axe in the bottom of the furnace and put the logs in the top. The result is one piece of coal. Then put the coal in the bottom and put the logs in the top. The result is more coal, which you can use to make your first torches. 20:53, 25 March 2014 (UTC)Thomas

I know. MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 20:00, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

MCPE 0.9.0 Release Date Specification[edit]

Mojang when will MCPE update to 0.9.0 all of us know that it is May but when in May? So all of the devices that are compatible for MCPE knows the specific date of the update.

Thank You Very Much! –Preceding unsigned comment was added by LewisBukie (talkcontribs) at 23:44, 27 April 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

We don't generally post dates here, but if one one were to find an official release date I would be happy. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 02:57, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

MCPE Update 0.9.0, why does the wiki not support it?[edit]

I couldn't help but notice that Pocket Edition does not have 0.9.0 stuff on the wiki. There is NO way that this update has been known for 5 days and not a SINGLE thing. I suggest adding stuff. I'll help, however I don't know a lot about wiki code so yea, I can only improve things and stuff. 18:59, 14 June 2014 (UTC) Evilstuff

It is not officially out yet, just development versions have been released. See Pocket Edition version history/Development versions for information. --KnightMiner (t|c) 20:10, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Pocket Edition 0.9.0 is seems to be a major update![edit]

What is the discription (section) to Pocket edition 0.9.0 on my iPad: "0.9.0 - biggest update EVER!" 02:33, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Could anyone confirm if Enchanted Armour is not going to be available on Pocket edition? Thanks We are a bit confused as a friends has the seemingly same edition but can obtain enchated armour. Thanks 10:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Mabye he's using a mod. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 12:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Creative Tools[edit]

I don't get it you cannot get tools etc. etc. in creative mode. Can you get tools in creative mode?!?!?!?! - –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 21:50, 25 August 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

You can get the hoe and shears, and prObably some others, but I don't see why they shouldn't add the rest. BTW, post you suggestions on the Minecraft Forums please. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 06:59, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Windows Phone[edit]

Create a page for Windows Phone of software and hardware, create a list of compatible devices, the software, etc --Nanopulga098 (talk) 13:39, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Bad idea, because it's almost the same edition as iOS and Android. Of course the console edition pages are exempt from this, but we're not talking about that. --ToonLucas22 (talk) 13:51, 23 December 2014 (UTC)


Can we move the "Diversity" section to Pocket Edition exclusive features? It is not helpful to the general description of the game, and we don't describe everything about any edition on its article anywhere else. KnightMiner t/c 17:05, 9 May 2015 (UTC)


In the "Trivia" section, it says that to make your own skin, you have to replace the "steve.png" or the "alex.png" file on the app file. Well, HOW DO YOU DO THAT?! --MCPEplayer2 20px 12:26, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Mods. I assume it involves an external program to modify the game's files. Really that piece of trivia never belonged as all it was saying is "If you mod the game, this can happen". The piece of trivia also was removed just before you made the comment. KnightMiner t/c 15:02, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Windows Phone Updated to[edit]

World Selection Screen from 0.9.0[edit]

If anyone happens to have a screenshot of the world selection screen from 0.9.0 Alpha (which includes worlds' sizes, but not the new icons), please post it on the page, to show comparison. GameFreak667 (talk) 15:16, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Windows 10 Version.[edit]

The Windows 10 version should not be on this page as it is its own version (and has its own page).--007a83 Talk | Contribs 03:49, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

May I direct your attention to this discussion, kind sir? -BDJP (t|c) 04:00, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
BDJP please don't provide sarcastic, offensive comments to someone who has a idea. People don't have time to look at every single article and know what is going everywhere, so just saying "you can put your feedback in this discussion" would bea mush nicer and friendlier alternative. Wolffillms (talk) 12:45, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I would not concider that comment too offensive, he was just phrasing it differently. In any case, while you are not expected to watch every page, the community portal is a place you should watch as it contains any wiki wide discussion, it is designed as the article so you don't have to look at every page. KnightMiner t/c 14:37, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I am aware you should watch the community portal but manny users may still not know about it and shouldn't be blamed for talking about changes on a relative article. Also the comment wasn't "worded differently" it was meant to cause offense.(I have noticed a history of this in BDJP comments on talk pages and edits.) Wolffillms (talk) 19:51, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
That did not come off as sarcastic or offensive. Thank you for linking me. --007a83 Talk | Contribs 05:18, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
well my bad and your welcome. I guess I just noticed his history of comments tend to be sarcastic/offensive and I thought that might be happening here. Wolffillms (talk) 14:52, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Heads up, avoid MCPE 2 right now. It's fake.[edit]

A game released by a person with a name similar to that of the creator of Five Nights at Freddy's has created a fake game called Minecraft: Pocket Edition 2. However, this game is not like Minecraft at all, and it usually crashes your mobile device. The game is about a character from the Mortal Kombat series defending himself against zombies. --Koopa troopa976 (talk) 22:59, 18 January 2016 (UTC)Koopa troopa976

I don't see how this is related to the article. Many fake Minecraft games go around, but as there was no Mojang source that a sequel would be made, we here at the wiki would never document such a thing. If you want to talk to users about the game and warn them not to download it, try the forums KnightMiner t/c 00:12, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Content lists[edit]

The content list makes the page unnecessary long, should they be collapsed? --007a83 Talk | Contribs 08:37, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

 Agree - Not everyone who visits the page is interested in viewing all blocks, items and mobs included in the game with their differences. A collapsed list should prevent unnecessary scrolling time.

GameFreak667 (talk)

I personally think it does not even belong on this article, as this article should just describe what the pocket edition is and what it is on. I would instead move the differences list to a new article. –KnightMiner t/c 21:20, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

About rating[edit]

Google play supports USK, PEGI and ACB ratings. It also have a special rating system in South Korea. [1] Is there anyone provide info about it? Clayblockiller (talk) 02:05, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Remove the 'Content' section[edit]

MCPE is no longer the lightweight version it once was. The 'Content' section is only going to grow more massive, and more redundant as the editions grow towards parity.

Can we take all the notes in those tables (they're all differences from PC anyway) and move them all to Pocket Edition exclusive features (that's where differences from PC are noted these days), and finally, remove the 'Content' section itself? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 19:38, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

 Support. -BDJP (t|c) 11:34, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
 Support. There has not been anything since october, so I will give you a day, and if no response, I will remove the Content section EDIT: There has been no response since october. I will Delete the section --Wyatt2050 (talk) 12:48, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
 Support. I'm a bit late considering it's now removed, but I would support this as well. The Pocket Edition data values page is essentially the same as content section. Jocopa3 (talk) 17:42, 23 November 2016 (UTC)


How do you trade with Villagers in PE? I have no idea how to do it, and I've been dying to find out! Can anyone help me? (I'm new; I don't know if you can comment or not ><)

RandomConfusingGamer (talk) 13:46, 20 December 2016 (UTC)RandomConfusingGamer

No you cannot trade with villagers in PE, sadly.--SamGamgee55 (talk) 17:06, 20 December 2016 (UTC)SamGamgee55

Lua error[edit]

So I was browsing through the wiki, and I clicked on the link for 0.4.0. I was then greeted with this: thumb thumb It seemed to affect only templates, nothing else and it only appears to affect the 0.4 MCPE page. I have reentered and reloaded the page multiple times. --SamGamgee55 (talk) 21:54, 22 December 2016 (UTC)SamGamgee55

SamGamgee55 : Majr explained this over on his talk page, as BDJP007301 and I (I suspect many others were, also) experiencing this around 00:40, December 22, 2016 (UTC). See User talk:Majr#Lua errors for his statement. Thanks, Maethoredhel (tc15px) 22:09, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks :Maethoredhel, I'll take a look at what Majr said. --SamGamgee55 (talk) 17:03, 23 December 2016 (UTC)SamGamgee55
