Its Artisan form Pokédex entry from Pokémon Scarlet reads, "It sprinkles some of its powdery body onto food and drains the life-force from those who so much as lick it."

I'm going to take that as a yes.
It also has healing powers tho. Depend son the connection I may guess.
Stunned by Poltchageist. It’s sinister, creepy, cool, and memorable all at the same time. Amazing!

Would love to see some follow-up artwork (like another card by the same artist) where the child is still alive. Like, the child is a little older and hanging out with Sinistcha. Then again, if the same kid is hanging out with Sinistcha in the future… probably not a good thing.
Heliolisk could be a one of tech to take out Mimikyus in Miraidon ex decks--if that's still a thing post rotation.
Heliolisk art kinda not doing it for me tbh, but I also love Helioptile more so I'm sad it's not getting one instead ?
