Does it go all the way to seven?
Maybe even eight?!

Ice, Fighting, Ground, Flying, Dark, Steel, and either Electric/Grass would cover all 18 Pokemon types. This makes a total of 7 types needed. The types in fancy blue text are the ones that give you the most coverage on a Pokemon's moveset.

As for the typeset that would cover every single Pokemon...

Ice, Fighting, Ground, Flying, Dark, Steel, Electric, Grass, Fire, Dragon, Fairy.

This covers every single Pokemon for super-effective damage, from Abomasnow to Zygarde, in 11 types.

Spiritomb and Sableye? I realize Eelektross doesn't take super effective damage.
Well, Mold Breaker...
And technically you wold need a Fairy-type move for Spiritomb and Sableye. Thanks though!
What is Dragon needed for? What is one Pokémon that is weak only to Dragon type moves?
