09/22/17: You guys have too much free time

I've made yet more updates to the Favorite Pokémon Picker, with two changes of note:

  • The shareable link to your current list is now a bit more streamlined: instead of containing a plain comma-separated list of the National Pokédex number and form identifier of each Pokémon in your list, it will now just have a nonsense string with two characters per Pokémon on the list. The reason for this change is that two separate people have contacted me in the past couple of days complaining because they'd ordered literally every Pokémon or something close to it, and the resulting URL was so long that the server refused to process it. In the new URL scheme, while it's possible to end up with a link of over 2000 characters (though only in forms mode with major only off), which some browsers may have trouble with, the server should at least always be fine with it. Old-style links will still work as before, of course.
  • I've also fixed an insidious little bug involving Zygarde 10%, where it and all Pokémon eliminated by it (or eliminated by them, etc.) could get vanished from your state. If you were affected, your state should silently fix itself when you visit the page again, adding Zygarde 10% to your not-yet-eliminated list and letting you pick it as normal - although of course, the presence of the bug may mean a bunch of Pokémon that should have appeared earlier in your list were incorrectly held back. Apologies for any resulting inconvenience.

As always, happy picking, and please let me know if you discover any further odd behaviour when using the picker.
