Also, newly added in the 7th generation, Fluffy reduces damage from contact moves, but doubles damage from Fire-type moves.
prism armor was also introduced in gen 7, it is basically the same as filter

Also don't forget SapSipper (Grass Type Moves Heal you)

One reason why we don't allow people to answer old questions is stuff like this. Sap Sipper didn't exist back when this question was asked. Please check the age of the question before answering. Also, comment small things, don't answer unless it's an actual, well..answer.
SapSipper raises the Attack stat when hit by a grass move.
