    They were NOT always Team Gai. As genins, they were team (enter number here), three academy graduates with a jounin sensei. Now that all the members are no longer genins, they are no longer required to be placed together in teams. However, when because of their history together, they already make a great team. This is why they are called Team Gai now, because the leader of the squad was Maito Gai. They are not in some permanent team together, but most likely Tsunade would keep them together when possible because they already work well together. It would be the same thing as calling the squad sent out to retrieve Sasuke at the end of part 1 Team Nara or Team Shikamaru.

    you're missing the point. of course they have always been in A TEAM WITH GAI. however, now that they have all reached at least chuunin rank, they are no longer bound to their gennin team. They can now be sent on individual missions, or paired up with other chuunins/jounins for different missions. It just so happens that when we first saw them after the time skip, they were placed in the same team form that we know and love them for.

    This will be my last post regarding this conversation Nighthawk, since it's diverging away from the original topic of this post. And yes, they replaced sasuke in Team Kakashi (not team 7). But the reason Team Kakashi currently contains the same members as team 7 is because it simply makes sense tactically to keep ninjas that compliment each other and have worked with each other for a long time together. Sai's ninjutsu based fighting style along with his ecellent taijutsu make him the perfect replacement for sasuke in Team Kakashi. Now, if you take the current manga events into consideration, the current Team Asuma consists of Asuma and Shikamaru, who have worked together for several years, along with Kotetsu and Izumo, who are elite chuunins that have also worked together for several years. This allows them to balance out Asuma and Shikamaru, even though it can safely be assumed that they have not worked as one big group together before. Now when Team Asuma is sent on their next mission, it may be Asuma, Shika, Ino, and Cho. Or Asuma and any other combo of ninjas. All I'm trying to get across is that just because Neji is a jounin does not mean Kishimoto made a mistake in keeping them together for the rescue Gaara arc.

    I'm not sure Chunins get assigned to different teams. Kakashi was a jonin and he was still with his team, all his other teammates were chunins also (speculation). Teams break according to Kishimoto's desire, no rules as of yet.
