Magikarps. They can beat Electabuzz.
Folkmiza everywhere else.

Dragon/Fire is the best offensive, as seen in Reshiram's hitting neutral STAB against everything, including Heatran with its ability.

Dark/Ghost, Dragon/Steel, Steel/Bug, Steel/Grass, Steel/Flying, and Steel/Ghost (doesn't exist yet though) are probably the best defensive typings.

Dragon/Fire is the best existing, or at all?

Ghost/Fighting also hits everything for neutral damage or better, and doesn't need an Ability to cover Heatran. It doesn't exist though....... yet.

Normal/Ghost would be pretty good if it existed : /

ghost fighting is good offensively and defensively.
Ice/fighting hits the most super effective.

And steel/ghost is good defensively as is steel/dragon. With abilities, steel/bug or steel/grass with flash fire too.
Or steel/psychic with serene grace >.<

Sorry, I edited for clarification.

I guess. I always thought that it would be a badass typing, but I didn't realize it would get such perfect coverage too. Not bad defensively either.

Maybe a Ghost/Normal evolution for Banette?

Not bad, but I wouldn't say it was good either. Weak to Flying, Psychic, and Ghost. Only resists Bug, Rock, and Poison with immunity to Normal and Fighting. So sure, it only has 3 weaknesses, and 2 of them aren't super common in the meta, but it also only provides 3 resistances with Bug and Poison not being a major threat anyway. The 2 immunities are what really make it better as a defensive type. It will be taking a LOT of neutral hits, which isn't (in my opinion) a good defensive setup.

The most important resistance is to Rock, which it has, and I'd say that either the second or third most important thing is Fighting, which it is immune to.

Also resists Bug, which is handy with the popularity of U-Turn.

So yes, I'd say that it is a decent defensive typing considering that is is an offensive Pokemon.
