You can see yourself by going to http://pokemondb.net/move/all and choosing a type from the menu, then clicking to sort the column. But I will summarize anyway...

NORMAL - Explosion
FIRE - V-Create (or Blast Burn for a move more Pokemon can use)
WATER - Hydro Cannon
ELECTRIC - Lightning Strike (or, Zap Cannon/Thunder/Volt Tackle for more Pokemon)
GRASS - Frenzy Plant
ICE - Freeze Shock/Ice burn (or Blizzard for more Pokemon)
FIGHTING - Focus Punch
POISON - Gunk Shot
GROUND - Precipice Blades
FLYING - Sky Attack
PSYCHIC - Prismatic Laser
BUG - Megahorn
ROCK - Rock Wrecker/Head Smash
GHOST - Shadow Force
DRAGON - Roar of Time
DARK - Foul Play/Hyperspace Fury
STEEL - Doom Desire
FAIRY - Light of Ruin
Remember these are the most powerful only, not the actual best moves. For example Frenzy Plant stops you from moving the next turn so it's not a good move at all.

Sheer Cold is the strongest Ice Type move. Horn Drill\Guillotine is the strongest Normal type move. Fissure is the strongest Ground type move.
Can't argue with that logic.
Rollout is the strongest rock type being able to deal 1440 power with STAB + defense curl
This list is without factoring in STAB and all that, just raw base power.

Also, shouldn't Hyperspace Fury (100 base) replace Foul Play (95) now? Along with Lightning Strike being replaced with its official name, Bolt Strike.
I agree with Unknown Letter Q. The actual strongest dark type is Hyperspace Fury. Foul Play does 95 damage, while Hyperspace Fury does 100 damage. Plus isn't the strongest psychic type Prismatic Laser (160 Damage)?
