As stated directly in the moves section: 'As a general rule, the promoted forms of pieces retain the movement powers of their third-zone unpromoted counterparts.' In other words, promotion does not change the third-zone move so much as it changes the domain of the move by extending it back to the first two zones. This also happens to apply to Dai-Ryu.
