My opinion:

Grass: Sceptile - with a overall stat of 530, a high sp.attack and speed but a low defense.

Fire: Charizard - with a overall stat of 534, a high sp.attack and speed, and a good set of moves.

Water: Swampert - with a overall stat of 535, a high hp, attack and a good balance of def and sp.def, and a good variety of move-sets.

I agree with Swampert, CHARIZARD ROCKS! It's rated probbably the best fire-type Pokemon. But if your not fond of Charizard, I woul go with Torterra or Sceptile.

Fire

enter image description here
Blaziken- With access to Speed Boost, it can out-speed anything by using Protect and it packs a serious punch with 120 Att, and if you manage to use Swords Dance, it's basically game over.

Water

enter image description here
Greninja- One word, Protean. Protean changes the user's type to the type of the move it uses, meaning it always has STAB and is nearly impossible to predict. (not to mention it's 122 Speed and 103 SpA.)

Grass

enter image description here
Venusaur (mega)- This thing is bulky as hell. 120 SpD and 123 Def mean you can easily set up Substitue and Leech seed, Thick Fat is an excellent ability for this tanky Pokemon, it makes Ice and Fire attacks only do neutral damage leaving it with only 2 weaknesses.

Tricky question.

Fire types: Blaziken's HA is OP as hell. That probably makes it the 'best' - after one protect, it outruns so much.
Charizard and Typhlosion both have glaring weaknesses - Charizard is weak to rock, and Typhlosion is fairly slow. Mega Char X is decent, but I prefer saving my mega.
Infernape is a fairly decent Revenge Killer BUT he doesn't quite have enough speed and attack to pull it off.
Delphox has a unique typing.... But a lot of weaknesses and not enough speed to counter any of them.

Water types: Again, Greninja's HA, Protean, probably makes it the best.
Swampert is pretty close behind, with only one weakness, an electric immunity (and a weakness to freeze dry). Plus powerful STABs, and a mega evo that fixes his speed in rain.
Empoleon is pretty meh. Far too slow, and the STABS are easily stopped. Blastoise is alright, not the best not the worst. Feraligatr is another one of those meh water types, with too low a speed. I can't comment on Samurott as I've never used it.

Grass Types: Serperior's HA contrary makes it the best offensive grass starter, with leaf storm massively boosting special attack.
Venasaur is a pretty decent wall and fairy counter, even better when mega evolved. Sceptile is a decent sweeper, and mega evolved... Things get very interesting. Mega Sceptile outruns Darkrai, and has a special attack stat only 5 points off Palkia's! Then again it is super frail. Meganium is... Like all the Johto starters, pretty meh. Nice defensive stats, but isn't bulky enough to toxic stall etc.

Overall:
Fire: Blaziken with HA Speed Boost for Uber (or just mega evolve Blaziken for the same effect). For OU, Infernape.

Water: For Ubers, obviously Protean Greninja. Anything else, or water monos, use Swampert. Mega Swampert is great for rain too.

Grass: Mega Sceptile is pretty decent, easily revenge killing huge portions of the OU Metagame. For a non mega sweeper, Serperior with its HA. For a wall, Venusaur.
