How to build an End Portal in Minecraft Pocket Edition

Think you can take on the Ender Dragon in Minecraft Pocket Edition? Well, you’ll first need an End Portal.


End Portals in Minecraft are the only way to find the Ender Dragon and access The End biome. Essential to complete the storyline of Minecraft, many players are often stumped on how to build an End Portal, especially in the Pocket Edition of the game. Well, today that’s exactly what we’ll be telling you how to do. 

It’s worth noting that End Portals can only be physically built in Creative Mode. If you’re playing a Survival world, you’ll need to find an already existing End Portal in a Stronghold.

If you’re playing Creative, you must have 12 End Portal Frames and 12 Eyes of Ender before you do anything. The Frames and Eyes can be found in the Creative menu, so select each item and place them in your inventory.

Once you have the desired items, you need to place the End Portal Frames in a 4×4 fashion. Although, leave out the four corner blocks, making it look the image you see below.

When building the frame, you must also ensure that you’re placing the blocks with the green tab on top. So, with the Pocket Edition of Minecraft, put it like any other block, but make sure the green tab is sticking out on all 12 blocks. You can tap to destroy a block if you mess up. 

Once you have your frame constructed, select the Eye of Enders and place them inside each of the End Portal Frames. You’ll know you’ve done so correctly when the green tabs activate, and a greenish-black portal appears in the center of your frame. If it doesn’t appear, try replacing the Eyes of Ender in each block.

After the portal shows up, you’re free to walk through, wait for the world to shimmer, and then you’re in The End biome. The Ender Dragon can be found flying around the area and will aggressively try to kill you, so be prepared with the proper weaponry.
