Advancing through the story won't get rid of the dragons, you can do it even after completing the future arc. The dragons are -very- high level, ranging from i think level 90 to level 120. They each drop a weapon, as well. I think the green one drops a knife for Cheria, the blue one drops a bladerang for Malik, and the red one drops a dualblade for Hubert.
Beating all three unlocks level 10 in the Zowon Cage --- Won't change until FPS's are no longer popular 9/12/10

Though I'm not strong enough to kill them :(
If you have any of the Paragon-type of titles that reduce damage of x or more by 50% then it's pretty easy. That or use All-Divide if you don't mind a 30min long fight.
The second I could fly the shuttle wherever I wanted to (after World's Eye) I found the blue dragon. I was around 50-55 at this point and I didn't find it difficult after I memorized it's attack patterns. I did the other two immediately after.
The hardest one is probably the fire one only because it 'is' the highest level but it's breath-shot will hit you even if you're right in his face; the other dragon's shot will just barely miss you every time.
Just try to stay behind them. evade a lot, spam their weaknesses and you should be fine. The items are extremely powerful (Hubert's glaive giving 600+ p-atk!) so you don't want to miss out on them for an early advantage.
