    Update 0.16 fixed it.
    You can get all of the required items in the achievement world.

    Edit: I've also added a version of the achievement world where the setup is there for the "inception" achievement. You need to hit the lever on the left first. Then place a redstone on top of the piston on the right, and hit the lever on the right twice.

    The items needed:
    -1 normal piston (4 cobblestone, 3 wooden planks, redstone and iron ingot)
    -1 sticky piston (normal piston + slime block)
    -1 lever (you can make this with a stick and a cobblestone)
    - around 10 redstone

    You can smelt iron ingots from the iron ore in one of the chests. There's cobblestone in plenty of chests. There's redstone in the chest for the "dispense this" achievement. Slime can be found at the trampoline. Wooden planks can also be found in multiple chests. The pistons and the lever have to be made at a crafting table.

    Place the normal and the sticky piston next to each other. (thanks to thoric) The wooden sides of the pistons should be facing each other. (one of which is sticky, the other one is not). place the lever a couple of blocks away (2 or 3). Now make a trail of redstone from the lever towards the regular piston. Then press the lever, and the piston should expand. Now destroy one piece of redstone from this trail, and make a trail from the sticky piston towards the lever. Now press the lever once to push the other piston away. Press the lever once more to pull the original piston back.

    I'm 90% sure that's how I got the achievement, though let me know in the comments if this works, as I did try some other things, and the achievement does not pop instantly.

    Inception, artificial selection, and great view all work if you find the older version of Minecraft PE. Google the app Aptoide, install that and search for Minecraft PE, and download and install version, I just unlocked those achievements a little while ago using this method. Sadly, the llama achievement doesn't seem to work on any version facepalm

    Screenshots of proof I got them (since I can't run a scan at this time due to the 24hr limit):
    Artifical Selection:
    Great View:

    ROBBERT DHTThat link leads to a Windows 10 version map though, not the PE one. Not going to downvote but right now your solution doesn't help me. Could use some more details.

    ROBBERT DHTJust got it with AllAchievements_v3 world, the stuff you need is in the chests and it's easy to make.

    EvcYou can use Windows 10 worlds on the PE versions. Thats how I've been getting a lot of the Android PE achievements.
