Headcanons for Shieldbert and Sordward being cousins/related to Ingo and Emmet?
(It's an idea that always intrigued me, esp since they share a lot of similarities!)
I can see that being a possibility, like the SwSh twins being somehow related to Emmet and Ingo (I feel like cousins is more likely). They do indeed share a lot of similarities.
They both have at least one steel type Pokemon in their team.
Sordward: Doublade, Bisharp.
Shielbert: Bronzong, Klingklang.
Ingo: Excadrill, Klingklang
(The fact both Shielbert and Ingo have a Kilngklang on their team is a bruh moment-).
They all tend to use the color blue and red for clothing options (maybe even the color black and white as well).
The SwSh twins are royalty and claim in every single sentence that they’re descendants of the first kings. Correct me if I’m wrong but in the Pokemon Black and White lore, wasn’t there like these twin heroes with the dragons or some shit? Emmet and Ingo are twins in Unova so yeah-that’s kinda sus fam.
They kinda have weird hairstyles, I don’t need to explain Sordward and Shielbert. But Emmet and Ingo have those gray things on the side of their face (looks like knives, you can barely miss it) and I’ve never seen people having that lifestyle.
They’re not really what you consider “normal”, since Emmet and Ingo have this muppet-ass looking face (they even act a bit robotic in the manga, but they’re still cool ;w;) when Sordward and Shielbert are just assholes and they have this need to mention that they’re royalty every time they talk with those dumb hair (definitely not cool, be nice).
The way they talk is also something that’s kinda oof, Ingo screams “BRAVO” any chance he gets, Emmet says things like “I am Emmet” or says words like “verrrrrrrrrrry”. Sordward and Shielbert talking all pompous like; hey, did we tell you that we’re royalty?
This one is something no one expected and has ever thought before, you won’t believe number 6 of this life hack I’m about to tell you; they’re twins.
(I’m sure there’s more points I’m missing, but you get it, hopefully)
I don’t think Ingo would be overly happy to come to the realization that he is related to those two. Like how can you tell everyone “listen, I’m related to these things, please don’t think less of me-”, now he has like three trouble makers to supervise, like looking away for a second could cause disaster. Wouldn’t be surprising that they test his patience at least every hour. But at least he finds Shielbert a bit tolerable. That’s a plus.
For Emmet, it would probably be a joy ride but also a bit of a nightmare realization (similar to Ingo, “why, I didn’t choose this path-”), but at least he has an excuse to terrorize the two everyday. And he would probably point and laugh whenever Sordward does something funny and gets in trouble (“haha dumb dumb idiot”). And throw Joltiks at Shielbert for the funny just to see him screech like hell and run.
I think the only thing that changes for Sordward is that he now respects the Subway Bosses more (or Subway Masters, never really knew the actual name) since they’re relatives to him. And whenever he fucks shit up now, he can use the excuse (like Emmet does) of “in my defense, Ingo left me unsupervised so-”, he can now flood all of the bathrooms with “barely” any consequences. Perhaps even going to jail afterwards, Ingo always has to bail him out-
I feel like for Shielbert it would be a waking nightmare, like he has a cousin that’s obsessed with bugs (and throws them at him) and harasses him non-stop. But he would also worry about their reputations, like just because he and his older brother fuck shit up, he doesn’t want others to assume Emmet and Ingo will also fuck shit up (or to have the same reputation just because they’re related). But nonetheless, he would be nice towards them (like a good boi).
I know this sounds like every single family gathering, but it’s true-
