Not a whole lot, that's for sure.

Released in Generation 3, the ‘Tender Pokemon’ Milotic first appeared in the Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire games. Considered to be the most beautiful Pokemon in existence, Milotic is one of the most-desired Pokemon in the Sinnoh region; not only for its design, but also for its amazing base stats and battling prowess.

Milotic is similar to Gyarados, with regards to their themes. Both of their first forms are extremely underwhelming, and the evolved forms are complete opposites of the first, as if these Pokemon got a ‘glow-up’, with Feebas being the ugliest Pokemon turning into Milotic, the most beautiful one.

What are Milotic’s Weaknesses in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?

Milotic may be a strong and bulky Pokemon that can tank a lot of hits, but even it can’t take a strong super-effective hit from opposing Pokemon.

Milotic is a pure Water type, and is hence weak to the Grass and Electric types. As a matter of fact, being a pure Water type is a good thing, as it leaves Milotic with some useful resistances that include Fire and Steel, and only the 2 above mentioned weaknesses.

Grass and Electric moves are usually ‘Special’ moves, which gives Milotic more of an advantage as its Special Defense is incredibly high, which should let Milotic easily tank at least one super-effective hit.

Be careful of the Pokemon that is hitting you for super-effective damage though. For example, you should probably switch your Milotic out if a Raikou is going to use Thunderbolt on you. This is because when Pokemon uses a move of the same type that they are, they get a Same-Type-Attack-Bonus (aka STAB bonus), which boosts the move’s damage by 1.5x

However, something like a Rampardos hitting you with a Thunderbolt will be much less threatening, since it does not possess the Electric typing, and hence will not get the STAB bonus (not to mention, it has an atrocious Special Attack stat), to which you should usually survive and can fire back with a super-effective Water move to defeat it.
