I don't understand the description of the movement of the promoted knight:

Promoted Knight Has 1 forward movent diagonal or orthogonal, 2 side movements left and right, and 2 rear knight movements.

Can you please re-word this?

Also, I'm a little confused that the description says each player has one pocket square, but the diagram shows two green squares per player.  Is the square with the copper general not a pocket square?  If so, does the color of the square change when you drop the copper?
