i dont think either one is solvable

No idea..., is this some retrograde thing?

I know that omglolbbqpizza likes posting puzzles with illegal solutions, so the second one is 1. d8=Black Pawn stalemate. i cant figure out the first one.

EDIT: of course the black pawn can move after 1.d8=Black Pawn! therefore I do not know the solution.

in that case the solution to the second one is probably: 1.d8=black king?

and in the first puzzle: white king

How about another king?

how about = white king and = black king? That does the trick.

Yes Yes. I gave a big tip: ANY promotion.
