Playing the "Champion" J2ME chess, I noticed that the bot (black) made the move "Pg2-h1=Q." Is this a bug or just a rarely known rule like en passant and castling?

    It is a bug, pawns only go diagonally when they capture. Nov 15, 2017 at 8:11

Pawns only go diagonally when they capture. See the section 3.7 of Chess rules.

The software you mention probably has a flaw.


Not a bug, it's an entirely possible move. (at least on chess titans.) Chess titans is the windows 7 version of chess.

    I don't think what happens in Chess titans is relevant to what happens in "Champion" J2ME chess. It's the rules of chess that matter, I'd say.
