Can it be done? A team example would be helpful. And the movesets.

No, because 17 is not divisible by 6. There would be 5 types leftover.

Taking the worst case scenario that you need 17 moves to cover each type: each Pokemon can learn 4 moves, therefore a maximum of 24 moves are available in a team of 6. So yes, you can cover every type super-effectively in a team of 6.
It should be noted that all types can be hit supereffectively with just six types: ground, fighting, dark/ghost, grass, ice and flying, not taking dual types into account
thanks brotad and fondant for answering my qustion
Speaking to Grievous

I don't know if you know this your not but i'm assuming you don't. Not every type covers the exact same number of types in terms of super effectiveness. even if they did and they all covered exactly 3 different types and all types we're covered by at least 1 type it would be possible because 6x3=18 which is more than 17.

HOWEVER. not all types cover the same number of types, some types are only super effective against 2 types and some against 5. so if you look closely you can find a combination of 6 that covers 17. in fact there are about 4 combinations of 6 that cover 17.

Please do some basic math the next time someone asks a math related question. It annoys me when people answer good questions with answers that don't make sense.

i dont know about a team, I will leave that to you but:

Electric(covers Flying and Water)
Ice(covers Ground, Flying, Dragon and Grass)
Fight(covers Normal, Dark, Rock, Steel and Ice)
Ground(covers Electric, Steel, Poison, Fire and Rock)
Flying(covers Fighting, Bug and Grass, not affected by Ground)
Dark(covers Psychic and Ghost)

voila...now you can build your team based of these types

I know this is an old question, I found it by asking the internet the same thing. I'm playing Shield again to be ready for the Isle of Armor Expansion, and I built a team with at least 1 move of every type. I'll use the evolved forms to explain, so the typing makes sense.
Hyper Voice (normal)
Sparkling Aria (water)
Ice Beam (ice)
Moonblast (fairy)
Boomburst (normal)
Overdrive (electric)
Throat Chop (dark)
Poison Jab (poison)
Leech Life (bug)
Flamethrower (fire)
Darkest Lariet (dark)
Double kick (fighting)
Leaf Blade (grass)
Aura Sphere (fighting)
Aerial Ace (flying)
Psychic (psychic)
Dragon Claw (dragon)
Steel Wing (steel)
Earthquake (ground)
Rock Slide (rock)
Shadow Ball (ghost)
Ice Beam (ice)
Weather Ball (normal)
Thunder Wave (electric)
Maybe I'm answering just to brag a bit, but I hope you're still a fan, and still playing.
