How to Defeat Soul Pulvis

Soul Pulvis can look intimidating at first, but proper preparation makes this fight considerably easier than a few previous ones. For starters, you need to bring as many Light affinity Pins as possible, as Soul Pulvis is weak against it, and the HP Vampire ability will let you heal HP while dealing damage.

Soul Pulvis can also be damaged by destroying the Noise it constantly spawns during the fight. If you want to go at the boss this way, it’s a good idea to bring long-range Pins with area of effect attacks, as melee attacks will leave you open to damage, given how many Noise are spawned during the fight. If you have Light or Dark Pins with you, however, it’s simply better to go after the real Soul Pulvis, build Groove, and unleash a Killer Remix that can clear the screen of the Noise easily. With this strategy, you should be able to defeat Soul Pulvis with little to no trouble.
