09/25/17: Still more Favorite Pokémon Picker stuff

I've added yet another feature to the Favorite Pokémon Picker. For any generated favorite list with a link in the new format, the list page will have a link back to the picker that will let you pick up where that list leaves off - for example, this link to a list with Charizard, Butterfree and Scyther on it links back to a picker page that will offer to let you continue from that list. In practice, of course, it's not super-useful for you to be able to pick up from my favorite list unless those happen to be your top three favorite Pokémon, but it does mean that if you save the link to your favorite list somewhere, you'll always be able to pick up from it even if you move to a different computer or otherwise lose your state - and if for one reason or another your list ends up being wrong because you accidentally eliminated some Pokémon when you shouldn't have or something like the Zygarde bug messed with your results, it's possible for you to just erase some letters off the back of your link (two letters per Pokémon) to back up without having to start all over.

Note that the only information passed over this way is your found favorites - if you continue from a link, you'll have to do a very long round going through all the Pokémon not in the favorite list, instead of being able to work with the previously constructed tree of elimination. Also, the favorite list does not know what settings you originally used; the picker will turn on forms mode if one of the favorites on the list is a non-default form, and disable major only if one of them is minor, but if you had excluded some generations or types when you made your list, you'll have to edit those settings again after loading the favorite list.
