I was really young so I only remember that in the first episode a group of kids get on a train then suddenly their monster avatars (in which they can transform later) appear for a split second.

The main guy gets his ability to transform first and it is some red monster I think. Then in the second episode I think they encounter in the forest they are in some kind of monster that can make you dream nightmares so it starts implanting them in every singe one of them.

I think the rival of the main kid transforms for the first time into some white cat tiger I think and that's it. I don't remember anything else but it is possibly from Japan(?).

I think you are talking about a spinoff of Digimon called Digimon Frontier.

In it 5 children are chosen, and sent into the digial world via a "Trailmon". During the first episodes, they have to discover their monsters, during which time 5 opposing warriors begin to hunt the kids.

  • Yep, sounds exactly right. It's not a spinoff though, it's just the 4th season. The US dub was aired on a different channel than the first 3 seasons, and several episodes aired out of order, so I can see why it seems like a spinoff.

  • And for the final comparison in the question, the boy on the far right is the rival/loner and turns into the light-element wolf digimon above him
