Triple exact echo. Chameleon echo with bishophoppers is rare, in PWC is possible to change color of their squares. (Author)
PWC (PlatzWechselCirce): Captured units reappear on the square just vacated by the capturing unit. Pawns appearing on their 1st rank have no moving or checking power until reactivated by being captured again; those appearing on their 8th rank are promoted instantly, at the choice of their own side.
