In battle, Pulsars are capable of using powerful electric spells such as Static E! and Bolt. However, Pulsars are rather infamous for using a kamikaze attack known as Migraine which can instantly knock out one of Mario's party if not guarded against. Pulsars will always use this attack when they are defeated.
Pulsars are weak to fire attacks meaning any of Mario's fire techniques are effective against them. However, one should be careful when dealing with a Pulsar as they will use Migraine in attempt to take a party member down with it. Ironically, Pulsars usually drop Pick Me Ups when they are defeated.
