So the anime I'm looking for is about a red haired boy suddenly being transported in another world in his modern world while going to his school with his blue haired friend (he was transported alone). Upon shocked at the fact he was in another place he tried desperately looking for his friend and trying to figure out why he is there while doing so he finds a man and a woman with a big filled bag go in an airship and leave (Maybe I got that wrong) he sees a red gem on the ground and picks it up. After a few more episodes he finds out he is the chosen one in the world who can save the world from chaos. The world had animals or creatures that is kind of similar to pokemon but with gems to power them up and without them beeing in a space in which we don't know what it's like when not in need for battle or any kind the animals connected with the gems turn into a small size enough to just have them sit on your shoulder or on your palm. What the red haired boy picked up was a beast inside that was very strong the red haired boy's animal partner was also red. The animals looks like plastic toys that came to life.

The blue haired friend who was with the red haired was shown in the series that he was also in the universe but was controlled by the evil person who wanted to get every gem stone and use it to make his animal more stronger than everyone else and wanting to destroy the world if I can remember the red haired met friends and traveled a lot of places in search of gemstones that can power up their partner animals the male and female with the ones with the filled bags who were the minions for that evil person would get in the way of red haired boy just like team rocket in pokemon but after the evil person said he had no use of them they were shocked and unable to process what to do after a while they sided with red haired boy and his friends but I think those two had ulterior motives?

I remember that the animals looked like dragons and dinosaurs but look like plastic toys and it's not Magi Nation please

I was looking for this in a website in which I used to watch it from and now I have found it apparently it's called Zinba the boy has brown hair not brown his animal partner is not a dragon but a lion I'm sorry......I'm wrong in so many things because I haven't watched it in a long time

While not all of the details you describe match perfectly, this sounds a lot like Kiba, a series from 2006 which was also dubbed in English and streamed on Toonami Jetstream in 2008-2009.

The "stuck in another world" (or isekai) element matches:

Zed, a 15-year-old boy who lives in a city called "Calm", is frustrated by his current situation in life; he feels that somewhere out there is a place where he can live more fully. One day, at the invitation of a mysterious wind, he dives into a space-time crevasse (portal), seeking the answers that might be there. Riding on the wind, he is transported to a war-torn world where magic users called "Shard Casters" fight endlessly with each other, using spells in the form of marble-like "Shards". He is transported to a country known as Templar.

In addition, the magic system is largely as you described, as is the prophecy aspect:

With the power of the Shards, the Shard Casters are able to use spells and control monsters called "Spirits". Fascinated by that power, Zed aims to become a Shard Caster. However, he still doesn't know that residing in his body is "Amil Gaoul", a mighty Spirit with the power to influence the world's future.

When comparing the series to your description, the hair color does not match: the main character has white hair, but he does wear red clothing. I am unsure about the "animal partner" part as well.

    If Amil Gaoul is the "animal partner", then it's the other way around; it's Zed who sits on AG's shoulder, not the reverse :-) – Jenayah Mar 20 at 21:18
  • @Jenayah That sounds perfectly reasonable, but didn't even cross my mind! – Shadikka Mar 20 at 21:19
