This is the best, I believe, and Infernape also has this movepool. Just use Flare Blitz instead of Acrobatics

Fighting
Dark
Ground
Ice

14/17 types (all but water, bug, and fighting)

I recommend Scrafty's Brick Break, Crunch, Dig, Ice punch.

The other one may be better because added up are a lot more water, bug and fighting type pokémon than dragon, ground, psychic, ghost and flying electric pokémon.

You could make the ice move freeze dry to add coverage against water

This was before the introduction of Fairy-types?

So, it's fine, I guess. Old question, but new answers relevant in this case, imo.

Other answer says 14/17 types, so this was before the advent of the Fairies :)
No they're not, the first answer from 5th of November is still the best answer. I checked myself using the Gen 7 checker.
