Maybe this is the Grass or Dark buff we've been waiting for!
If it was a dark kind of status it could be something like Dizzy: Special moves get an accuracy drop of 40% and when they do hit, all damaging moves used (special or direct) have a 10% recoil.
That way, it wouldn't be exactly like burn, but it would severely hamper SpAtk, whilst also having an hp draining effect, making its purpose similar to burn. Plus, it would infuriate Focus blast users even more than usual.
This is fun! I wonder what a grass status would be like?
