For example, Malamar that has Forest Curse used on it has an 8x weakness to Bug.

Also include Trick-or-Treat, Freeze Dry on Ice, etc.

Good question. It's totally something I would ask.
Soak and Trick-or-Treat don't give any 8x weaknesses. Since Ghost's only weaknesses are itself and Dark, and Soak doesn't give it a third type.

The following are 8x after Forest's Curse:

  • Bug / Steel, 8x weak to Fire [Scizor, Mega Scizor, Wormadam-Trash, Escavalier, Forretress, Durant, Genesect]
  • Dark / Psychic, 8x weak to Bug [Inkay, Malamar]
  • Bug / Fighting, 8x weak to Flying [Heracross, Mega Heracross]
  • Dragon / Flying, 8x weak to Ice [Dragonite, Altaria, Salamence, Rayquaza, Noibat, Noivern]
  • Ground / Flying, 8x weak to Ice [Landorus, Landorus-T, Gliscor, Gligar]
  • Dragon / Ground, 8x weak to Ice [Vibrava, Flygon, Gible, Gabite, Garchomp, Mega Garchomp, Zygarde]
  • Bug / Ice, 8x weak to Fire [No Pokemon]
  • Water / Flying, 8x weak to Freeze Dry [Gyarados, Mantine, Wingull, Pelliper, Mantyke, Ducklett, Swanna]
  • Water / Dragon, 8x weak to Freeze Dry [Kingdra, Palkia]
  • Water / Ground, 8x weak to Freeze Dry [Wooper, Quagsire, Marshtomp, Swampert, Barboach, Whiscash, Gastrodon, Palpitoad, Seismitoad]

Soak wouldn't do anything since it turns the Pokemon into 1 type, meaning you will never have a x8 weakness.
Forest's Curse and Trick or Treat does not stack, so you cannot add Ghost and Grass, although they don't share any weaknesses.
Trick or Treat adds Ghost type to the target, which does not have 3 weaknesses.
So only Forest's Curse works.

Seeing as an 8x or triple weakness to ghost/dark is impossible, as only psychic and ghost have those weaknesses, this is limited to the effects of Forest's curse.

8x to Ice

Dragon/Flying-Dragonite, Salamence, Rayquaza, Altaria, Noibat, Noivern

Ground/Flying- Gligar line, Landorus (both forms)

Dragon/Ground-Vibrava, Flygon, Gible line, Zygarde

8x to Fire

Bug/Steel- Scizor, Escavalier, Trash Wormadam, Genesect, Durant

8x to Bug

Psychic/Dark-Malamar line

8x to Flying


And a triple weakness to Poison is impossible, as only two types, Fairy and Grass, are weak to poison.

Also do some for Soak, Trick-or-treat, or any other similar moves

Adding to what others have said (in case anyone's reading this 3 years later), Forest's Curse will also give the following an 8x weakness to Flying Press:

  • Dark/Fighting (Pangoro, Scrafty, Craggy)
  • Normal/Fighting (Mega Lopunny, Meloetta (Pirouette Forme))
  • Ice/ Fighting (Crabonminable)

No Pokemons are 8x weak to anything. They can be 4x weak, but not 8.
They CAN be 8x weak if one of the Pokemons are holding an item that doubles damage (which doesn't realy count, and I dont know an item that does that).
