Diagonal pawn chess. Pawns always move diagonally, whether capturing or not.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I forgot to ask: can a pawn's first move be two diagonal squares?  If so, is en-passant capturing still allowed?  i.e. Let's say there's a White pawn at e5 and a Black pawn at e7... the Black pawn moves to g5.  Can I assume the White pawn could capture it immediately on f6?
