This doesn't answer the question, but this is a helpful page on the matchups of each type, even the existing dual types. http://www.serebii.net/games/type.shtml
Does this include type combos that have not been created yet??
Nope. They really should put that in though.

I would say Steel/Bug. Pokemons in Steel & Bug are only very weak against fire, but they have many resistances. Ghost/Dark comb could be better, than Steel/Bug.

He just did this beacause genesect is TBB's picture.
Not at all! Otherwise I would not, have any good reasons for my answer! :p
I did not pick this answer because of my pic :P but because it actually answers my question. Some other types like these are ground/water and electric/water
so did mine.. nvm tho. NO1974's answer wuz good. and it was answered just minutes before my answer, so,technically (s)he answered first.
Peace ^_^
T-Rex I asked what's super effective against the type not what it resists

I'd choose a electric-water type due to it having only 1 weakness,but you can have an air ballon on him. Electric covers the weaknesses of water,(grass and electric)and the ground weakness is still there.
A Dragon-Steel type would also be good. Steel covers the Ice weakness, it also covers the dragon weakness. Fire is also weakened to regular power. It only has two weaknesses,ground and fighting types.
Finally, a psychic-dark type would do swell. Dark covers two weaknesses of psychic, dark and ghost. Psychic covers dark's fighting weakness so the only weakness is bug,ut bugs can be killed easily due to their common weak defence stat, even if one bug type move could kill you.
