It should be noted that although, as you say, a generated Pawn will block one element of a double check, there are some circumstances where the Pawnb itself will check. If a White Knight moves from c7 to a6 and the Black King is on b8, both Knight and Pawn will give check. If there is a Bishop or Queen beyond the Pawn (say on e5), that will protect the Pawn.
