I was wondering about that too, but I recalled that Chess pieces are also called Chess figures, because the pieces are usually figurine. I did a search for "chess figure," and the top results are for chess piece. So, he probably means that the Pawn promotes to another piece. But nothing is lost if he means something else, since it's just an example of a rule someone could come up with, not an actual rule of the game. This is not the sort of game that can be programmed, but that is okay. Some games are like that.
