Pomegranates adapt well to growing in containers so that's not what is causing the yellowing leaves and fruit drop. I suspect you are overwatering. The containers should have lots of drainage holes in the bottom and after watering well you need to allow the potting soil to dry slightly before watering again. At this point I would simply allow the soil a chance to dry out and then water less frequently than you have in the past. Hope your pomegranates recover!
