No. Pawns cannot move backwards.
Only the pawn cannot move backwards. All the others can.
No , the pawn moves forward in a straight line unless when capturing an opponent's chessmen diagonally or by 'En Passant' .
Moves in chess are determined by the nature of the pieces and the spaces available for a legal move. Any chess piece can move backwards except for the pawn - and even the pawn can move backwards in a sense, if it reaches the back of the board and is promoted.
No - pawns only move forward - except when capturing a piece. They're not allowed to move laterally.
In the game of checkers, a kinged pawn may be moved like a normal pawn, but can move in any direction, forwards or backwards, side to side, as long as the move is diagonal. ----InfoMac
The pawn is allowed to move two (or one) spaces forward on its first move, but only one move on each other. It can not move backwards. It can only capture pieces diagonally, therefore if there is a piece in front of it, the pawn is not allowed to move unless the piece moves out of its way. One more thing is, if the pawn manages to make it across the board it can switch out for any other piece except the king or the pawn itself.
