How to Add Mobs to a Bedrock Edition Minecraft Server

Bedrock Dedicated Servers which is Mojang's official Vanilla Minecraft server software for Bedrock Edition supports mobs by default. However, PocketMine-MP and NukkitX do not have mob spawning feature available yet.

To have mobs for these server types, installing a plugin is required, which we'll show how to do in this guide.


  1. Navigate to your server's Multicraft Panel and stop you server.
  2. Download the plugin for your Minecraft Bedrock Edition server type:


    Download the PureEntitiesX plugin (PureEntitiesX.phar) by clicking on the Direct Download button found on the PureEntitiesX page.
    Download PureEntitiesX plugin


    Download the MobPlugin plugin (MobPlugin-X.XX.X.jar) by clicking on the Download Now button found on the MobPlugin page.
    Download MobPlugin

  3. Upload the PureEntitiesX.phar file into the \plugins folder of your PocketMine-MP server.
    The same process will be done to the MobPlugin-X.XX.X.jar file for your NukkitX server.

  4. Restart your server to complete the installation of the plugin.

If the plugin was successfully installed, mobs should already be able to spawn in your PocketMine-MP or NukkitX server.
