Tinkaton is a Fairy and Steel-type Pokemon, which means they have weaknesses to Ground and Fire-type moves. It is immune to Poison and Dragon moves, and is resistant to Normal, Flying, Rock, Bug, Grass, Psychic, Ice, Dark, and Fairy-type attacks.
While any Ground and Fire-type moves will be sufficient to finish off Tinkaton, you will want to focus on Physical Attack moves if you have them. Tinkaton has higher Special Defense, which means you will have much better luck using Physical Attacks.
As for specific Pokemon you want to avoid bringing into battle against Tinkaton, you will want to make sure to leave Dark, Dragon, Fighting, Fairy, Ice, and Rock out. They all have at least one weakness to Tinkaton’s attacks. Tinkaton also carries Dark moves, so be careful with Ghost and Psychic Pokemon.
