The most weaknesses that a Pokemon can have is 7 weaknesses.
The Pokémon types that have 7 weaknesses include:


Solrock and Lunatone are the only Psychic/Rock types but they are spared as they have the Levitate ability, removing the Ground weakness.

Exeggcute, Exeggutor and Celebi as Psychic/Grass types, Snover and Abomasnow as Ice/Grass types, Nuzleaf, Shiftry and Cacturne as Grass/Dark types, Terrakion as the only Fighting/Rock type, and Tyranitar and Mega Tyranitar as Rock/Dark types have the most weaknesses out of all Pokemon.

The most resistances a Pokemon can have is 11 resistances.
This is only the Steel/Electric type, which belongs to Magnemite, Magneton and Magnezone.

Eelektross only has a Ground weakness which is negated with it's Levitate ability, meaning it's the only Pokemon that has no weaknesses. All pure Normal-type Pokemon have no resistances, but rather have neutral damage from everything except the Fighting-type.

Hope I helped. :)

You missed quite a lot out so I edited them in for you...

On a separate note I don't know if you want to space them out and give the "Pokémon types with 7 weaknesses" on the second line their own line, as it's quite hard to read with it all being in bold.

Edit: I took care of it to make it easier to read, if you don't like it then by all means change it back but I think it looks more presentable the way it is now.
