Which pokemon has the most amount of resistances thats not a steel type?

2 votes

I always thought that metagross was a great and strong pokemon but i realized he only has 9 resistances(including the poison immunity), the smallest amount of resistances than any other steels..
So..I wanted to know if there are any non steel type with 9 or more resistances. Oh and you can count abilities as well like levitate,flashfire,water absorb,volt aborb etc.

Very similar to this: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/51326/excluding-anything-paired-steel-defensive-type-types-count

Do the answers on this question answer yours?

Yeah, you could count Shedinja.
But not counting him...
With Steel: Magnezone
Without: Tentacruel (and tentacool) have 7, Poliwrath (and Keldeo) do too.

But... Chandelure with Flash Fire or not, has 8!

For more info, see http://pokemondb.net/type/dual

It would be a dragon type Or rock type
I would go for a water rock type like corsola
Water/rock types are resistant to
Rock
Normal
Poison
Fire
Ice
Neutral damage from 7types

Maybe a poison bug resists
Poison
Bug
Grass
Fighting
Neutral damage from 8 types

Or even a dragon type
Resists ...
Fire
Grass
Water
Electric
Neutral damage from 11 types

Chart here

Of course there's magnezone which you didn't want Steel types but 12resistances and 1 immunity 2with magnet rise or air balloon

Finally you could kind of count shedinja
12immunitys 2resisyances that's considering it has wonder guard

Well we all know about shedinjas wonder guard but I wouldnt pick him, hes too risky
The most I could think about is tentacruels resistantance to 7 types which is fire,ice,water,steel,poison,bug,and fighting. Can you think of any other pokemon with more resistances than that?
Tentacool :)
