IS the king in check?
If an opponent's pawn can not move, otherwise his king would be in check), would my king be in check from that same pawn if I moved to the pawn's adjacent attcking square, assuming the pawn could not technically attack or advance?
it does not matter if a pawn is pinned or not. You can't move your king to a square that is protected by the opponent's pawn. It is as simple as that. Don't make things complicated just follow the rules.
The rule is:
You can't move your king to a square that is protected by your opponent's pieces.
If these pieces can not move because they are pinned somehow does not matter at all.
