take away the pull ups. use m&ms or something as motivation to use the potty. he's a "big boy" now and big boys don't need pull ups b/c they use the potty. if you get him in his pjs and hour or two before bedtime explaining that there will be no more pull ups and ask him every 20-30 minutes if he needs to go potty he'll get it. the first week or so prob will have some wet sheets but the pull up is now his crutch even though he has shown you he knows how to use the potty and doesn't need the crutch, time to leave it behind. good luck!
