Best answer

The most weaknesses that a Pokemon can have is 7 weaknesses.
The Pokémon types that have 7 weaknesses include:

Ice/Grass
Psychic/Grass
Psychic/Rock
Grass/Dark
Fighting/Rock
Rock/Dark

Solrock and Lunatone are the only Psychic/Rock types but they are spared as they have the Levitate ability, removing the Ground weakness.

Exeggcute, Exeggutor and Celebi as Psychic/Grass types, Snover and Abomasnow as Ice/Grass types, Nuzleaf, Shiftry and Cacturne as Grass/Dark types, Terrakion as the only Fighting/Rock type, and Tyranitar and Mega Tyranitar as Rock/Dark types have the most weaknesses out of all Pokemon.

The most resistances a Pokemon can have is 11 resistances.
This is only the Steel/Electric type, which belongs to Magnemite, Magneton and Magnezone.

Eelektross only has a Ground weakness which is negated with it's Levitate ability, meaning it's the only Pokemon that has no weaknesses. All pure Normal-type Pokemon have no resistances, but rather have neutral damage from everything except the Fighting-type.

Hope I helped. :)

Thanks, Shiny Hunter Luna. I fixed the word "weaknesses" to "restistances".
Oh... thanks for letting me know. No hard feelings :)
Another fact : Heatran has the most double-resistances
The pokemon combination with the most double weakness would be Steel/Rock with their double weakness of Ground as well as Fighting. The other obvious combination would be Rock/Ground with their double weakness of Grass and Water.
I would like to add that now, Steel/Normal would have 11 resistances as well as Immunity to Ghost.
