Charged creepers are only spawned when a lightning strikes within 4 blocks of a Creeper. This will happen very rarely during a thunderstorm in the Overworld. The chance of this happening is very less and therefore, players can follow these three guaranteed ways to spawn them:

  1. Players can use a Trident enchanted with the Channeling Enchantment. Players can throw this near 4 blocks of a Creeper during a thunderstorm to summon lightning and change it into a charged creeper.
  2. Players can also use the /summon command to summon a lightning strike.
  3. Players can also lure creepers near a Lightning Rod in Minecraft during a thunderstorm. This can trigger the spawn of a charged creeper if the lightning is redirected to the rod.
