Delayed $$gamma$$-ray cascades, originating from the decay of 6$$^+$$ isomeric states, in the very neutron-rich, semimagic isotopes $$^{136,138}$$Sn were observed following the projectile fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam at RIBF, RIKEN. The wave functions of these isomeric states are proposed to be predominantly a fully aligned pair of f$$_{7/2}$$ neutrons. Shell-model calculations, performed using a realistic effective interaction, reproduce well the energies of the excited states of these nuclei and the measured transition rates, with the exception of the $$B(E$$2;6$$^+ rightarrow 4^+$$) rate of $$^{136}$$Sn, which deviates from a simple seniority scheme. Empirically reducing the $$nu f$$$$_{7/2}^{2}$$ orbit matrix elements produces a 4+1 state with almost equal seniority 2 and 4 components, correctly reproducing the experimental $$B(E$$2;6$$^+ rightarrow 4^+$$) rate of $$^{136}$$Sn. These data provide a key benchmark for shell-model interactions far from stability.
