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


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. :)

Eelektross has no weakness, he asked abilities be included :P
Oh shoot how could I forget that. xD
Mold Breaker.
You missed quite a lot out so I edited them in for you...

On a separate note I don't know if you want to space them out and give the "Pokémon types with 7 weaknesses" on the second line their own line, as it's quite hard to read with it all being in bold.

Edit: I took care of it to make it easier to read, if you don't like it then by all means change it back but I think it looks more presentable the way it is now.
Fun fact: Dark and Psychic type Pokémon also have no restistances, those Pokémon being Inkay, Malamar and Hoopa Unbound.
Why did you change your comment to make me sound wrong?
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.
