They might be a better one, but this is the best I found.

2017 (Gen 7) edit: this combination hits 717 Pokemon for super effective damage and 191 for normal damage as of Sun/Moon. Note, this question was originally posted in 2013.

Earthquake
Thunderpunch
Close combat
Acrobats

Infernape
Fire, Electric, Fighting, and Ground
0 - No Effect
0 - Not Very Effective
179 - Normal Effectiveness
595 - Super Effective
This is the best, I believe, and Infernape also has this movepool. Just use Flare Blitz instead of Acrobatics

Earthquake

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.

I was trying to find a good type coverage for Dunsparce and I found a really amazing one
Fire+electric+ice+ground
0 no effect
232 regular
676 super effective
Fire+ground+ice+ghost has 640 super effective
There was also a combo with 674 super effective but unfortunately I can't remember what it was

He asked for the very best four types, not a good one. This answer is wrong.
