Alan Pulido made his debut in an official competition in 2010 playing in that year's edition of the SuperLiga tournament. He played all 90 minutes against American side Chivas USA on 20 June. Tigres would go on to win the match 2–1. Tigres would advance to the Final against Chicago Fire, going on to win a match in a penalty shoot-out after a 1–1 draw after 90 minutes and extra time.
On 27 February 2010, Pulido made his debut in the Primera División coming on as a substitute after the half-time break in the 0–3 defeat to Monarcas Morelia. He scored his first league goal on 13 April 2011 in the 4–2 win over Pachuca at the Estadio Universitario.
On 23 March 2012, Pulido scored the opening goal in Mexico's 7–1 win over Trinidad and Tobago in the 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament held in the United States. Two days later, he scored a hat-trick in Mexico's 3–0 victory over Honduras. His fifth goal came in the semi-final match against Canada, making him joint-top-scorer, along with teammate Marco Fabián.
On 29 January 2014, he scored a hat-trick on his debut appearance against South Korea, with Mexico going on to win the match 4–0. On 2 April, he scored the second goal in the 2–2 draw against the United States in a friendly match at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
On 2 June 2014, Pulido was named in Mexico's squad for the World Cup in Brazil. He did not appear in any match.
On 29 January 2015, it was reported that Pulido had signed a one-and-a-half year contract with Greek club Levadiakos, with the deal being confirmed by both Pulido – who announced the transfer via his Twitter account – and the club. However that same day, Tigres issued a press release declaring that CAS had ruled in their favor and would reject the transfer, with the court stating that ‘there is not a risk of irreparable damage to the player, because such damage, if exists, is caused by the player himself who decided not to re-join Tigres’. Pulido's request for a provisional transfer had also been denied by CAS, though another request was submitted to FIFA. On 2 February, Pulido participated in his first training session with Levadiakos. On 27 February, a provisional transfer was granted to Pulido by FIFA's Player's Status Committee, thus allowing him to play for Levadiakos while the legal dispute continued.
On 9 March 2015, Pulido scored on his official league debut with Levadiakos in the 3–1 win against Platanias, and was named man of the match.
On 3 July 2015, Olympiacos announced the signing of Pulido from Levadiakos. Prior to the move, Mexican club Guadalajara claimed they had purchased fifty percent of the player's rights during the annual league draft, and were awaiting on a verdict from the resolution from CAS in favor of Tigres UANL, who as a result could negotiate with Guadalajara over Pulido.
On 13 January 2016, Pulido started his first match for Olympiacos in the Greek Cup match against Chania, scoring the fifth goal in the 6–0 victory. On 18 January, he made his debut with the club in the Super League in a 0–0 draw game against Platanias. Five days later, Pulido played all 90 minutes and scored the only goal in a 1–0 victory against Xanthi. On 28 February, Pulido scored the third goal in the 3–0 win over Veria, meaning Olympiacos won the league with six matches to spare, 21 points clear of second-place AEK Athens.
On 30 August 2016 it was announced that Pulido was returning to Mexico to play for Guadalajara for a reported US$7.15 million(€6 million), making Pulido Guadalajara's most expensive signing at the time.
On 28 May 2016, Pulido attended a party with his girlfriend in a rural area in Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas. After leaving the party at 11:30 p.m., he drove through a highway and was cut off by a vehicle. Pulido and his girlfriend were then forcibly taken by six masked gunmen. His girlfriend was later released unharmed. His family members contacted the police and the case was escalated to all three levels of law enforcement. On 30 May, Pulido managed to escape by overpowering one of his captors and taking one of his guns. The other captor ran from the scene after Pulido destroyed the windows of the room he was in. Once he was safe, Pulido dialed 066, the emergency number, to contact law enforcement and give his location. In the operation, at least one person was arrested; Pulido was sent to a hospital for medical examination. He suffered a minor injury in his right hand for breaking through the window to escape the kidnapper's safe house, where he was being held.
In April 2017, Guadalajara won the Clausura Copa MX final against Monarcas Morelia after defeating them in a penalty shoot-out in which he scored. The following month, the Clausura championship was disputed against his former club, Tigres UANL. In the first leg at Estadio Universitario, he scored the first goal in a 2–2 draw. In the return leg at Estadio Chivas, he scored the first goal of the match again — a goal named as Goal of the Tournament — this time the final score being 2–1 in Guadalajara's favor meaning they were crowned champions for the first time since the Apertura 2006 and won their first Double since the 1969–70 season. He was included in the Clausura's Best XI and named as the tournament's most valuable player as well.
On 17 April 2018, during the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League finals against Major League Soccer club Toronto FC, Pulido would score from a free kick, helping his team attain a 2–1 victory — the goal was named as Goal of the Tournament. Guadalajara went on to win the finals.
On 11 December 2019 it was announced that Pulido will play for Major League Soccer club Sporting Kansas City on a four-year contract for a reported US$9.5 million (€9.2 million) as a Designated Player, making his transfer the most expensive in the history of the club. On 29 February 2020, Pulido scored a goal in his debut match against Vancouver Whitecaps in a 3–1 victory. On 3 October, he returned to the lineup following a hamstring injury and scored his first brace in a 2–1 victory over Houston Dynamo, leading him to being named MLS Player of the Week.
