Yes, it's less popular now to hack older generation games and there are just much better free to play games available to the consumer these days.

Would you rather play someone's ROM hack, or a professionally developed free to play game? It just doesn't strike me as a good past time to play ROM hacks, aside from maybe playing something on your phone while you wait for the bus. Only Pokemon fans who wish to play more Pokemon games would look into playing ROM hacks, and thus they'd be the only ones who'd possibly convert into hackers. Turns out that group isn't very large. Some people also don't exactly know about ROM hacks either.
