Fire: Magby; Litwick
Water: Poliwag; Horsea; Spheal
Grass: Oddish; Bellsprout; Hoppip; Seedot; Sewaddle
Of those only Spheal and Hoppip don't require special conditions to evolve to their final stage (Sewaddle's high happiness requirement isn't that hard though). I think you shouldn't get into a situation where your starter can't evolve (for whatever reason) - so even if we were to use one of these, we'd have to come up with a system that guarantees that you can use it to its fullest...
I'd always keep the option to have any of the existing starters though. Otherwise we may face the wrath of the rage kiddies:

If we were to pick one of the previous starter trios I would suggest using Sinnoh or maybe Johto?
Just a thought Im going to throw out, again its not my preference, What about having the starters from different regions? So for example, Cyndiquil, Snivy and Mudkip? (Sorry if I get hate for suggesting this, its just an idea)

alternately we could choose from a list of 15 types (2 will miss out) and use the starter screen for it by using the PixelExtras /starter command (unless i haven't added it yet?)
The question from that though is which types miss out and which Pokemon to have as starters
