What is the Fire Emblem Engage arena?

After each match in Fire Emblem Engage, you can retreat to the Somniel and take part in many activities before you depart on the next mission. One of the possible activities is taking part in mock 1v1 battles in the arena, choosing a single unit to face off against a single enemy unit based on characters you have encountered. While these battles don’t have consequences if you lose, winning them can still bag you some rewards, so it’s well worth your time to visit the arena between your missions.
