Introducing the Rare Blue Axolotl in Minecraft

Axolotls are cute, salamander-like mobs that were added to Minecraft in version 1.17. They spawn naturally in lush caves and come in a variety of colors including pink, brown, yellow, white and blue. Blue axolotls are one of the rarest variants and can no longer be found spawning in the wild.

Many Minecraft players seek out the vibrant, deep blue axolotls for their unique appearance. Blue axolotls can be obtained in survival mode through breeding regular axolotls or using spawn eggs in creative mode. However, the rarest blue axolotls must be summoned using commands.

This guide will cover how to get blue axolotls in Minecraft Bedrock edition using both the /summon command and by breeding axolotls. The summon command allows immediate spawning of a blue axolotl, while breeding offers a chance of blue offspring from regular parents.

Using the Summon Command in Bedrock

To use the summon command in Minecraft Bedrock Edition, you first need to enable cheats and commands in your world settings. Cheats allow you to access game commands that can modify gameplay such as summoning mobs.

The basic structure for the summon command is:
/summon axolotl ~ ~ ~ {Variant:4}

This will summon a blue axolotl at your current coordinates. You can specify different coordinates like 50 70 120 after the axolotl name to choose the spawn location.

The {Variant:4} part sets the color to blue. The variant numbers are:
0 - Pink
1 - Yellow
2 - Brown
3 - White
4 - Blue

So by changing the number inside the curly brackets you can summon any axolotl color variant you want!


Breeding Axolotls to Get Blue

One way to get a rare blue axolotl in Minecraft is by breeding regular axolotls. To start the breeding process, you'll first need to find and collect two adult axolotls, which spawn naturally in lush caves.

Axolotls can spawn in five different colors - pink, brown, yellow, white and blue. The blue variant is extremely rare, so chances are any axolotls you find won't be blue. But you can breed any two colors to potentially get a blue offspring.

Once you have two adult axolotls, place them in a body of water and feed each a bucket of tropical fish to put them into 'love mode'. Tropical fish buckets can be obtained by catching the fish in ocean biomes using an empty bucket.

When two axolotls in love mode are near each other, they will mate and produce baby axolotl eggs, which will hatch into full sized axolotls. Each baby has a small random chance to be blue rather than the same color as its parents.

According to the Minecraft Wiki, there is only a 0.083% chance, or 1 in 1200 odds, of breeding a blue axolotl. So it may take many, many attempts before you get lucky!

Customizing the Summon Command

There are many ways to customize the /summon command to get exactly the axolotl you want in Minecraft Bedrock Edition. You can use name tags, boost health and size, make axolotls invisible or invincible, and more by adding attributes inside the {} brackets.

For example, to summon a larger blue axolotl named "Big Blue", use:

/summon axolotl ~ ~ ~ {Variant:4,CustomName:'{"text":"Big Blue"}',Attributes:[{Name:generic.maxHealth,Base:30},{Name:generic.attackDamage,Base:8},{Name:generic.movementSpeed,Base:0.3},{Name:generic.knockbackResistance,Base:1.0},{Name:generic.followRange,Base:100},{Name:generic.scale,Base:5}]}

You can also give exact X Y Z coordinates like 50 70 120 after the mob name to spawn axolotls precisely where you want. Online summon generators like Minecraft : Summon Mob Generator - Gamer Geeks and DigMinecraft can help build customized summon commands if you need assistance.

Troubleshooting Tips

There are a few troubleshooting tips to keep in mind when trying to summon or breed blue axolotls in Minecraft Bedrock Edition:

First, make sure cheats are enabled in your world settings. You won't be able to use the /summon command or other cheats without enabling this option first.

If you're having trouble customizing the /summon command, try using an online summon command generator to help build the command and attributes.

When breeding axolotls, remember that blue variants are quite rare, even when two axolotls are in love mode. You may need to breed many generations before obtaining a blue offspring. Be patient and keep trying!
