You can't even use "Google" Pay...I read that statement and it seems pretty dramatic to me... I don't think "Google" cares one way or the other... SafetyNet is a tool to verify device integrity for app developers. "Google" and the Play Store don't care if your device is the way the manufacturers made or different, but app developers do for either security, integrity, or safety reasons, at least in theory. Google doesn't set the restrictions apps require, it's just the investigation and enforcement tool for developers.
Don't like the fact you can't play Pokemon Go when in a custom ROM? Talk to Niantic, not Google.
And the thing is that if I install a custom rom which is not rooted then also it will not work.

And the sarcastic part is that when a company takes the Android source code...puts a skin on it...then it passes safety net...but if we use a custom rom like AOSP then it's integrity is lost...strange!!
