Air dodge each pulse or just roll dodge them.

Roll dodge is the only way to dodge it. It's tricky to time it, though.

Use the sidestep it's the only reliable dodge, you can easily predict that way.

Red Ring of Death: (Just wrap Tabuu up in a towel for 15 minutes...) Get to the very edge of the stage and use the sidestep. It's easy to time when you're on the edge and the sidestep has a quicker recovery than the rolling dodge or aerial dodge.
Whip: Hard to avoid. Just jump and hit the shield button at the same time. You'll have a good chance of avoiding, but it won't always work. You could also get right next to him or to the farthest point away form him. His whip isn't THAT long.
Golden Brackets: Stay in the middle, jump up and aerial dodge right when it's going to touch you.
Energy Spray: Easy, even if you get caught. Just try your best to shield and roll out to behind him. Attack him then, but watch out for the red energy ball he shots at the end.
Purple energy pounds: That one move that has him mimicing Donkey Kong. Actually this can't kill you, but it racks up major damage. That doesn't totally matter though... since all his attacks would just about kill you instantly anyway.
Beam Cannon: Just don't start your jumps until you see the dragon-like thing appear.
Spinner: Just air dodge, then use the second jump and air dodge as it comes back.
Charge: Aerial dodge works.
Eye Lasers: Get right next to him and.... jump into his face. It's free hits here.
Electricity balls: Just stay away from him. Hit him with ranged attacks if you have any.
Image Barrage: Again, stay away. Hit him with ranged attacks.

I think that covers all his attacks. Once you learn to avoid his attacks, the only problem you'll have is finding the oppertunity to hit him.

Heheh, I use sidestep dodge because it's faster, and you know just where you're going. I beat Tabuu on Intense on my first try, probably because I was able to dodge this move with Cpt. Falcon and beat him up. While he was using the rings, he was hitting a Hothead, and I threw it and it literally took about 1/4 of his health away.

Your missing when he turns into a missle head like knife thing and flys in the air.
Just stay on the ground or air dodge if you have to.

Then theres on where he pulls out a knife and attacks like going down a halfpipe. Maybe someone else can explian it better.

My advice is to use Ganondorf as one of your characters, but I'm not sure how to dodge that move either.
