The Master List of Items

The process of creating new versions of the game on new platforms begins with creating as simple and functional a version as possible, and then slowly adding new features to it in an established expansion plan that has traditionally been used for all of the previous versions, and the Pocket Edition is no exception to this rule.

The following Master Items List was created to present the complete list of objects in the game -- with the first half being focused upon user-created (crafted) objects, and the second half being "found" items and objects naturally occurring in the world and which you will use to create other objects.

It is the case with some crafted items and objects that they can also be "found" items or objects - for example Arrows, Bones, and Feathers can be found on the ground at each sunrise where a light-sensitive mob was made to disintegrate, leaving behind those possessions that are not light-sensitive.

Also note that the item/object called "String" and the item/object called Spider Silk are the same item/object.

Part II -- "Found" Items and Objects

The following objects and items make up the second group of "found" items and objects as they are not crafted items or objects. A "found" item/object can be used in crafting as a resource but it does not automatically have that status.

To make this more useful the objects are broken up by type...

Blocks and Material

Naturally occurring objects that tend to take block form (but then almost everything in the game does) and that usually serve multiple functions as environmental objects and recourse sources.

  • Bedrock
    The blocks found at the very bottom of the world, in addition to letting you know you have reached the botom of the world it is also a completely indestructible object that cannot be broken or destroyed.
  • Bedrock (Invisible)
    A special type of bedrock block that exists on the edges of the world to keep you from moving past it but is invisible so you can still see the sky.
  • Coal Block
    Used as a means of storing large amounts of Coal, this compact form is created by crafting 9 lumps of coal into a block. It is also one of the most efficient sources of fuel for smelting, because if you use the 9 lumps of coal separately they will smelt a total of 72 items (a lump of Coal will smelt 8 items) using the block form you can smelt 80 items.
  • Clay
    A deposit found in nature near water sources, when it is mined Clay breaks down into Clay Balls, which can then be used for making Bricks.
  • Clay Ball
    Obtained from Clay deposits, this object can be smelted to make clay Bricks.
  • Clay Block
    Created by crafting 4 Clay Balls, when it is placed in the Furnace and smelted it creates a Hardened Clay Block, which can then by colored using dyes for use in decorating your home.
  • Coal Ore
    Encountered in stone deposits at every level of the world, Coal Ore has a distinct appearance as it is rick spotted with coal. Breaking up the ore will result in obtaining a random number of Coal Lumps.
  • Cobblestone
    The basic building block that is acquired by using a pickaxe on stone. Cobblestone can be smelted to turn it back into Stone Blocks, which are harder than Cobblestone and better resist the force of a Creeper exploding.
  • Dead Bush
    Strictly a decoration item in the game, these can be found "growing" in sandy areas and can be collected by using shears on them -- like flowers they can be used to decorate your yard / house.
  • Diamond
    Obtained by mining Diamond Ore with an Iron Pickaxe (or above) this is considered to be the most valuable resource in the game largely due to its use in creating the most durable tools and weapons, as well as the strongest armor.
  • Diamond Block
    Created by crafting 9 Diamonds, Diamond Blocks are said to be one of the most efficient methods for storing large amounts of Diamonds - though really we should be so lucky as to have so many Diamonds that we need to be able to store large amounts! They also make seriously bling decorating objects you might want to use for walls in your home if MTV's Cribs comes calling.
  • Diamond Ore
    Encountered at lower levels in the world Diamond Ore is, naturally, where you get Diamonds from! A lot of time will be spent looking for it, but be sure you have an Iron Pick or better when you try to mine it as otherwise you will destroy the block and not obtain any Diamonds.
  • Dirt Block
    Probably the most common object in the game, Dirt Blocks also happen to be among the most important because without them we could not obtain seeds, grow things, or have a nice green grass lawn. Just saying.
  • Glowstone Block
    In the other versions of the game these are found in the Nether Region, but as there is no Nether in PE they are obtained by crafting Glowstone Dust, which is obtained from the Nether Generator. A source of light in the game, Glowstone Blocks are often used as a more fashionable light source rather than Torches.
  • Glowstone Dust
    Obtained from the Nether Reactor, 4 Glowstone Dust can be used to craft a single Glowstone Block, but care should be taken in converting Blocks back into Dust due to the fact that there is a slight loss in the process, as a broken Block never produces sufficient quantity of Dust to craft another Block.
  • Gold Blocks
    Encountered in the bottom 32 layers of the world, Gold Blocks can be mined using an Iron Pick or better to obtain Gold Ore.
  • Gold Ore
    Encountered in the depths of the world throughout the bottom 32 layers, it is one of the more valuable resources in the game, mining Gold Blocks with an Iron Pickaxe or better will obtain a random number of Gold Ore (usually 6 to 8) and smelting the ore in a Furnace will obtain Gold Ingots, which are a basic crafting ingredient for a wide array of objects in the game.
  • Grass Block
    This is a Dirt Block that has Grass growing on top of it. Especially valuable as a source for seeds, they also make your lawn look nice.
  • Gravel
    The only source for Flint, which is obtained by mining Gravel. While it is not a good building material due to its unstable nature, it is useful for making walking paths and decoration, for gardening, and can be stockpiled for later processing to create Flints for other crafting.
  • Ice Block
    Found in bodies of water in cold climates, so far there is no known crafting use for the block and it cannot be harvested intact.
  • Iron Ore
    Smelted to make Iron Ingots, which are a core material and resourced for crafting in every version of the game, while it is not as difficult to find as Diamonds, I would not exactly describe it as easy to find either.
  • Lapis Lazuli Ore
    Found underground, Lapis Ore is very easy to spot as it is peppered with the blue stone. Used mostly for making dyes, when turned into blocks it makes a nice floor tiling material.
  • Lava
    One of the more difficult to find substances, when you do locate a Lava source block it can be stored in a Bucket and used as a heat source or fuel, as well as for building devices that require one.
  • Moss Stone
    A type of Cobblestone with Moss growing on it, these are anecdotally useful in that when placed the moss always points in the same direction -- north.
  • Mossy Cobblestone Wall
    A wall made from Moss Stone.
  • Netherrack
    The uber-rare resource obtained from the Neterrack Reactor. Used for special crafting.
  • Obsidian
    Used as a building material because of its very high resistance to explosive damage, it is the second toughest material in the game. It is also used for constructing Nether Portals and Enchantment Tables in most versions of the game. It is created when Water touches a Lava Source Block. Mining Obsidian requires a Diamond Pick.

    The most common source for Obsidian in PE is by mining it after the Nether Reactor shuts down, as a bunch of it forms around it after that point.
  • Obsidian, Glowing
    In PE when a Netherreactor is spawned the gold and obsidian from its construction turns into this.
  • Quartz Block
    Crafted from Nether Quartz, these blocks are used for decoration.
  • Quartz Slab
    A decorative object crafted from Quartz Blocks.
  • Quartz Stairs
    Crafted from Quartz Blocks.
  • Redstone Ore
    Mined in the lower levels of the world, this is the source for Redstone Dust, which is used for creating devices and powered crafted objects in the game.
  • Sand
    An abundant resource often found near water or in desert, Sand is used to make Glass and when combined, Sandstone.
  • Sandstone Block
    AAn attractive decorative object crafted from Sand.
  • Snow
    Found on the ground and on Ice, it can be collected to make Snowballs.
  • Stone Block
    The basic material from which Cobblestone is obtained via mining with Picks of all types.
  • Tall Grass
    While it grows naturally you can use Bonemeal on Grass Blocks to grow it. It is also a reliable source for seeds.
  • Water
    A common resource in the game, it is useful for growing plants, swimming, and mixing with Whiskey. Well, OK the first two in the game not the third.

    Obtaining a Water Source Block in a Bucket is very useful since it will flood an area, and Water will destroy Tall Grass and other plants, which means you can use it to harvest Seeds over a large field by placing the Source Block, letting it flood then putting the Source Block back in the Bucket.

Organic Object

While many of these are food items (or can be made into food items) the thing that groups them together is that they are all organic objects. Well, that is sufficient for our purposes, which is to make the sorting a bit easier on the mind for grouping.

  • Apple
    Obtained from mining Tree Leave Blocks, this is a rare result -- Saplings in comparison are much more common.
  • Beetroot
    In addition to being the common ingredient in Rose Red Dye, it is also the primary ingredient in Beetroot Soup.
  • Beetroot Seeds
    The Seeds used to grow Beetroot are obtained in exactly the same way as Wheat Seeds - from grass.
  • Bone
    Found on the ground after mobs die in the morning and looted, Bone is a valuable resource because it can be crafted into Bonemeal.
  • Cacti
    Obtained by breaking up Cactus, this is used in creating green dye.
  • Carrot
    Obtained as a rare drop from mobs - you are most likely to encounter it laying on the ground in the morning. It can be planted to grow more of the same.
  • Cyan Flower
    Encountered growing in the wild, they can be harvested and replanted as a home decoration.
  • Egg
    Laid by Chickens, they are a crafting ingredient for certain food items as well as the mechanism through which baby Chickens are obtained.
  • Fern
    A plant that is found in the overland.
  • Birch Tree
    With its distinctive White Bark and lighter shade of wood, this is less common than Oak in the Overland.
  • Melon
    Found in Jungle Biomes, as loot and grown from Seeds found in Dungeons and Mineshafts, Melons are a good food source.
  • Melon Seeds
    Created by crafting Melon Slices. These are used to grow more Melons!
  • Mushroom, Brown
    Found in areas with light level of 12 or below, Mushrooms are never encountered in direct sunlight in the Overland. Brown are the more common type.
  • Mushroom, Red
    Found in areas with light level of 12 or below, Mushrooms are never encountered in direct sunlight in the Overland. Red are the rarer type.
  • Oak Tree
    Oak Trees are a more common type, and produce Oak as well as Oak Tree Saplings. They have dark brown bark and produce a pleasing brown wood.
  • Potato
    Obtained as a rare drop from mobs - you are most likely to encounter it laying on the ground in the morning. It can be planted to grow more of the same.
  • Pumpkin
    A vine-grown plant (more than one can result from a single vine), Pumpkins had fairly limited value and use until the addition of Pumpkin Pie to the game.
  • Pumpkin Seeds
    Obtained by crafting Pumpkins.
  • Spruce Tree
    More common than Oak, they are also a source for wood.
  • Wheat
    Seeds for Wheat are obtained by using a How on Grass, and when grown fully (when the plant turns brown) they are harvested and used to make Bread.
  • Yellow Flower
    Encountered growing in the wild, they can be harvested and replanted as a home decoration.

Resource Objects (Requiring Action)

The heading for this group is a bit misleading because some objects apply in the strictest sense of the definition and some do not. For example while feathers are a found object (dropped when mobs disintegrate) they are also obtained by killing Chickens. Leaves are on trees but are also obtained by harvesting them from trees as are saplings which grow into trees. I make no excuses for this, it is what it is.

  • Feather
    Obtained wither as loot on the ground in the morning after mobs die, or by killing Chickens, the most common use for Feathers is for making arrows - the ammunition used by Bows.
  • Flint
    Used for making arrows and for making the Flint & Steel Tool, these are obtained by mining Gravel.
  • Gunpowder
    Obtained as loot drops from Creepers you kill - and the reason why a failed encounter with a Creeper is so explosive! This is used in crafting TNT.
  • Leaves
    Obtained from Trees using Sheers, these are a decorative item (so far).
  • Raw Beef
    Obtained from killing Cows, it can be broiled in the Furnace to make Steaks.
  • Raw Chicken
    Obtained from killing Chickens, it can be broiled in the Furnace to make Cooked Chicken.
  • Raw Porkchop
    Obtained from killing Pigs, it can be broiled in the Furnace for making Cooked Pork.
  • Sapling (All Types)
    Obtained by mining tree leaves, these are used to grow more trees of the type it is obtained from.
  • String
    Obtained by killing Spiders, it can be woven into Wool or used to make Bows.
  • Sugar Cane
    Obtained from river and lake banks, it is used for making Sugar and Paper.
  • Wool (All Colors)
    This naturally occurs in a variety of colors and shades in Sheep - and can be obtained either using Shears (which allows you to harvest it from Sheep more than once) or by killing the Sheep (which does not).

Special Objects

This class is small - but I expect it to get bigger -- but for now it holds only the two objects that are found in dungeons -- perhaps the single most sought-after thing in the game thanks to being the only place that dungeon chests (and therefore saddles) can be found. Why is that important? Well because you cannot ride a pig without a saddle of course!

A dungeon by the way really is what the naturally-occurring caverns full of mobs (and with luck a chest) are actually called in the game.

  • Chest (Dungeon)
    Treasure is found in these - included the very rare Saddle that is required for riding Pigs - but they are notoriously difficult to find because they are very very rare.
  • Saddle
    Used for riding Pigs. And only for riding Pigs.

Q.A. Answers -
1.There is an enchanting table mod ONLY FOR ANDROID DEVICES - check out AceCraftGaming's(PE Youtuber) channel and search for enchanting mod!
2.Ore is spread evenly throughout the minecraft PE infinite world. (yes, if u update pe there r infinite worlds) is also spread around world but, but like diamond it only spawns in lower layers around bedrock (dark unbreakable stuff when u get to the lowest possible level.) redstone is So useful in PC to make Automated farms and piston walk-thru doors with logic gates and BUD's and all that(check out Mumbo Jumbo on youtube hes pretty good with redstone)
it's >almost useless but not completely cuz you can make minecart powered rails, clocks and compasses.
3. nope, thats all supercheats can fit into a comment. C Ya everyone MCHadolus signing out!!

Were is the best place to find red mushrooms.

Wool dye is in the last category of stuff. Blue dye is lapis lazuli. Red dye comes from smelting red mushrooms in a furnace.. Yellow dye comes from crafting yellow flowers, green dye comes from smelting a cactus, and white dye is bone meal, which comes from crafting a bone.

Melon seeds are only obtainable from a nether reactor. When you have some melon seeds they can be planted on any ploughed soil just like with wheat. Note that the plant will spawn 4 melon blocks adjacent to it
