The dynamics of a pulse for reaction-diffusion systems in 1D is considered in the neighborhood of the bifurcation point with codimension two, at which both of saddle-node and drift bifurcations occur at the same time. It is theoretically shown that when the bifurcation parameter is close to such a bifurcation point, a pulse moves with oscillation, and then starts to split.
