Is Steel/Poison w/ Levitate the best defensive typing?

Immunities to Poison and Ground, 4x Grass resistance.

Weaknesses to Fire, Ground (if ability is taken away).

Fighting, Psychic, Water, Electric do neutral damage.

Resistant to nearly everything else.

A Steel/Dragon with Levitate I think would have the most resistances.

It's only weakness would be Fighting barring that levitate stays active.

I believe Magnezone w/ Levitate has the most resistances, but still more weaknesses than Steel/Poison w/ Levitate, IIRC.

This is why I like our current Types, though I'm not adverse about a new type, with the current types it's extreamly hard to have a pokemon that is defensibly stong in every aspect.

Admittedly a Sableye with Wonderguard would be the best but then again realisticly wonderguard should stay on shedinja

Steel/Ghost with Flash Fire would be an interesting Pokemon.

Either with Levitate or Flash Fire a steel/ghost Pokemon could be a formidable Pokemon
