Mobs tend to drop items that can be used for crafting, eating, or smelting. Unlike the PC version of Minecraft where zombies drop rotten flesh, in Pocket Edition, as of now, zombies drop feathers.
In Pocket Edition, there are three types of mobs in the game. Below is a list of all the mobs in pocket edition and their types-
- Zombie- The first hostile mob added to the game. Moves slowly towards the player, has melee attack. Drops feathers instead of rotten flesh, and makes a low, groaning sound. Can sense players through solid blocks. Burns in sunlight and spawns in light level 7 or below.
- Skeleton- Circles the player and shoots arrows. Has no melee attack. Drops arrows and bones. In PC, rarely drops the bow. Burns in sunlight like zombie and spawns in light level 7 or below.
- Creeper- The most dangerous mob in the game. Explodes when near the player, destroying any structures, and even killing nearby mobs or players. Makes hissing sound when about to explode, but approaches silently. Does not burn in sunlight, and spawns in light level 7 or below.
- Zombie Pigman- Spawn when the Nether Reactor is activated. Hostile unlike PC version where neutral. Do not have the hat layer on their heads. Appear to burn in sunlight, but do not take damage.
- Slime- Added in 0.9.0. Spawn in random chunks underground. Cannot swim and drown underwater. When killed, they split into smaller versions of themselves. Their smallest size can be killed with a punch and cannot harm the player.
- Silverfish- Added in 0.9.0. Spawn only in extreme hills biome, or through a mob spawner in strongholds. When attcked, they summon all other silverfish in the area.
- Spider- Spawn in light level 7 or below, and always spawn hostile, but turn neutral in light levels above 7 unless attacked. Can vertically climb over blocks without ladders and see the player through solid blocks. Does not burn in sunlight.
- Enderman- Added in 0.9.0. Spawn rarely in light level of 7 or below. Turn hostile when looked at directly. Takes damage from water, and cannot be hit by projectiles (eg. snowballs, arrows, eggs). Can move and
place some specific blocks and can teleport from place to place. Hostile endermen turn neutral by daylight. Does not drop Ender pearls as of 0.9.0.
- Wolf- Added in 0.9.0. Turn hostile only when attacked or when a nearby wolf is attacked. Can be tamed by feeding bones, and breeded and healed by feeding any sort of meat. Collar cannot be dyed as of 0.9.0. Tamed wolves will follow the player around and teleport when necessary. Baby wolves cannot swim, and will drown in water.
- Sheep- First mob added to the game. Can be sheared to obtain 1-3 wool and killed to obtain 1 wool. Can be breeded using wheat.
- Pig- Passive mobs that are good sources of food (porkchops). Can be ridden in the PC version, but currently not in PE. Can be breeded using carrots or potatoes.
- Cow- Useful mobs that are also a good source of food. Drop raw beef and leather when killed; the leather can be used to craft armor. Also gives milk when milkedusing a bucket. Can be breeded using wheat.
- Chicken- Small mobs that do not take fall damage. Drops eggs at regular intervals (around 10 minutes). Drop raw chicken and feathers when killed.
- Villager- Added in 0.9.0. Spawns in villages. Also called NPC (Non Player Characters) Villagers and Testificates. Currently cannot trade, breed or open/close doors because of the decreased villager AI.
- Mooshroom- Added in 0.9.0. Spawns only in Mushroom Biome. Drop raw beef and leather similiar to cows, but give red mushrooms when sheared, and mushroom stew when 'bowled' (tapped on by a bowl). When sheared, turns into a normal cow.
- Ocelot- May be added in a future update. Were planned for 0.9.0, but were too buggy. Shy mobs that can be tamed by offering fish (raw/cooked). Spawn exclusively in the Jungle Biome. Become Cats when tamed and change skins. Both Ocelots and Cats scare away creepers, which make them a great companion when fighting creepers.
- Chicken drop 1-3 feathers, 1-3 raw chicken and 1-3 cooked chicken if killed by fire.
- Cows drop 1-3 pieces of leather, 1-3 raw beef and 1-3 steak if killed by fire.
- Pigs drop 1-3 raw porkchops and 1-3 cooked porkchops if killed by fire.
- Sheep drop 1 wool when killed, and 1-3 wool when sheared.
- Mooshrooms drop 1-3 mushrooms when sheared, one bowl of mushroom soup when milked, 1-3 raw beef and 1-3 leather when killed.
- Wolves currently drop nothing.
- Endermen currently do not drop Ender pearls.
- Spiders drop 1-3 string.
- Creepers drop 1-3 gunpowder.
- Silverfish drop nothing.
- Skeletons drop 1-3 arrows, 1-3 bones and their bow (rarely)
- Slimes currently do not drop slimeballs.
- Zombies drop 1-3 feathers, 1-3 potatoes/carrots (rarely) and a stone shovel (rarely)
- Zombie Pigmen drop 1-3 gold ingots, 1-3 feathers and their gold sword (rarely)
- Villagers drop nothing.
- In the PC and Console versions of Minecraft, Zombie Pigmen are neutral. But in the Pocket Edition of Minecraft, Zombie Pigmen are always attacking the player even not damaged or hit by the player making it a hostile mob. Zombie Pigmen are guessed intentionally as a hostile mob to make it harder to get the loot of the Nether Reactor. They are also missing the hat layer of their head.
- Zombies likely drop feathers because the hunger potion effect hasn't been added. Rotten flesh will likely be added with potions.
- Spiders are actually neutral mobs, as they only are hostile natrually if the light level is less than 7. Once hit though, they will turn hostile even if in light levels more than 7.
