We quoted each other at the same time. Yeah but it's also a damage dealing move. So while healing your ally's burn you would also damage them. As another user mentioned, it would be useful for stopping Guts and Facade / Flame Orb strategies but that's a niche use.The official blurb about Primarina on the PokeSuMo site states: Sparkling Aria is a Water-type special move that only Primarina can learn, and it heals the burns of any target it strikes.
I can only make a guess about this being a move that would really only have some value if you're in a double battle. If the opponent pokemon burns Prima's battle partner, it could use the move to heal them. I agree that I don't really see how this would have any kind of real value if you're engaged in a single battle. Although maybe someone with a lot more experience than me in competitive battling could think of something?
