'''Teams''' <small>(Japanese: チーム, Mandarin: 队)</small> are what are used to separate members of [[AKB48]], [[SKE48]], [[NMB48]], [[HKT48]], [[NGT48]], [[STU48]], [[JKT48]], [[BNK48]], [[TPE48]], [[MNL48]], [[SNH48]], [[BEJ48]], [[GNZ48]], [[SHY48]] and [[CKG48]] up. By using 'Teams', members can be categorized more easily. Also, instead of the entire group performing a theater show, only one team is assigned to perform. This allows fans to focus on a certain group of members and give the girls days off. [[Kenkyuusei]] are sometimes referred to as Team Kenkyuusei, but is not official.

This allows fans to focus on a certain group of members and give the girls days off.
  
Teams are named after the letters used in their group's name, except for [[AKB48]] [[Team 4]], [[Team 8]] and [[SNH48]] [[Team X]]. In the case when a Team's name has already been taken up, roman numerals are used to signify which number of letter that team is. For example, both AKB48 and SKE48 have the letter "K" in their names, so instead of forming a Team K in both AKB and SKE, the AKB team is called Team K and the SKE team is called Team KII.

For example, both AKB48 and SKE48 have the letter "K" in their names, so instead of forming a Team K in both AKB and SKE, the AKB team is called Team K and the SKE team is called Team KII. On rare cases, there can be a team with double letter (may be usual for AKB48 Team as Sister Group), for the example for [[Team SH]] and [[Team TP]].
  
The Teams of [[SNH48]]'s sister groups didn't follow this order, because they aren't AKB48 sister groups. For example, [[BEJ48]] [[BEJ48 Team B|Team B]] and [[AKB48]] [[Team B]], but they follow the order of [[SNH48]] actual teams. For example, [[SNH48]] [[Team NII]] and [[GNZ48]] [[GNZ48 Team NIII|Team NIII]] (Don't confuse with [[NGT48]] [[Team NIII]])

For example, [[SNH48]] [[Team NII]] and [[GNZ48]] [[GNZ48 Team NIII|Team NIII]] (Don't confuse with [[NGT48]] [[Team NIII]]). Although AKB48 and SNH48 had been separated, AKB48 still continuing the order without caring the teams that were created and taken by SNH48 (SII, NII, and HII).
  
 
Each Team has their own captain, who may or may not be the [[Center]] of the Team. Traditionally, teams had 16 members, but since the [[Tokyo Dome Team Shuffle]], there is no limit to the amount of members that can be on a team.

Also each team has their representative color. Usually, the first team represents its sister's group color for an example like [[JKT48]] [[Team J]], that team use "Red" color (as same as the color of JKT48 logo). But for few case, some first teams use another color for an example like [[HKT48]] [[Team H]], that team use "Green" color (which is not same as [[HKT48]] logo color which use "Black" as its color).

The only groups that do not use teams are [[SDN48]], [[Nogizaka46]] and [[Keyakizaka46]], where members were separated by using generations instead. Even without Teams, these three groups have their own captains, with [[Noro Kayo]] being the SDN48 captain, [[Sakurai Reika]] the Nogizaka46 captain, and [[Sugai Yuuka]] being the Keyakizaka46 captain. SDN48 was disbanded in 2012, however.

A team has its own activity, such as has recording for Single/Album/Setlist Studio Recording for its team, doing a event/concer for its team, doing a setlist by a team, and etc. But, usually they still can interact with another member in another team ([[Senbatsu]], concert, Himawarigumi, and etc).

Himawarigumi (AKB48, HKT48, and JKT48) and Cattleyagumi (NMB48) are terms for a group which is formed by some members in a team that usually doing a stage rather than for another activity.
  
Sometimes, there are special groups made within the AKB48 Group, such as single coupling song groups. An example of this is [[Team PB]] or [[Team YJ]]. These teams were only temporary and for marketing purposes, the members within them stayed part of their original teams as well. Other temporary teams, such as Team Undecided and [[Team Unknown]], are used when a member is transferred or promoted, but there either is no team spot available, or they haven't been assigned to a team yet.

Currently, a special Team, [[Team Kaigai]] is being used for AKB48 members who have been transferred to sister groups abroad.

Teams (Japanese: チーム, Mandarin: 队) are what are used to separate members of AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, NGT48, STU48, JKT48, BNK48, MNL48, SGO48, CGM48, DEL48, MUB48, SNH48, BEJ48, and GNZ48. By using 'Teams', members can be categorized more easily. Also, instead of the entire group performing a theater show, only one team is assigned to perform. This allows fans to focus on a certain group of members and give the girls days off.

Teams are named after the letters used in their group's name, except for AKB48 Team 4, Team 8 and SNH48 Team X. In the case when a Team's name has already been taken up, roman numerals are used to signify which number of letter that team is. For example, both AKB48 and SKE48 have the letter "K" in their names, so instead of forming a Team K in both AKB and SKE, the AKB team is called Team K and the SKE team is called Team KII. On rare cases, there can be a team with double letter (may be usual for AKB48 Team as Sister Group), for the example for Team SH and Team TP.

The Teams of SNH48's sister groups didn't follow this order, because they aren't AKB48 sister groups. For example, BEJ48 Team B and AKB48 Team B, but they follow the order of SNH48 actual teams. For example, SNH48 Team NII and GNZ48 Team NIII (Don't confuse with NGT48 Team NIII). Although AKB48 and SNH48 had been separated, AKB48 still continuing the order without caring the teams that were created and taken by SNH48 (SII, NII, and HII).

Each Team has their own captain, who may or may not be the Center of the Team. Traditionally, teams had 16 members, but since the Tokyo Dome Team Shuffle, there is no limit to the amount of members that can be on a team.

Also each team has their representative color. Usually, the first team represents its sister's group color for an example like JKT48 Team J, that team use "Red" color (as same as the color of JKT48 logo). But for few case, some first teams use another color for an example like HKT48 Team H, that team use "Green" color (which is not same as HKT48 logo color which use "Black" as its color).

The only groups that do not use teams are SDN48, Nogizaka46 and Keyakizaka46, where members were separated by using generations instead. Even without Teams, these three groups have their own captains, with Noro Kayo being the SDN48 captain, Sakurai Reika the Nogizaka46 captain, and Sugai Yuuka being the Keyakizaka46 captain. SDN48 was disbanded in 2012, however. TPE48 didn't formed a team, instead they transferred all of their members to AKB48 Team TP

A team has its own activity, such as has recording for Single/Album/Setlist Studio Recording for its team, doing a event/concer for its team, doing a setlist by a team, and etc. But, usually they still can interact with another member in another team (Senbatsu, concert, Himawarigumi, and etc). Himawarigumi (AKB48, HKT48, and JKT48) and Cattleyagumi (NMB48) are terms for a group which is formed by some members in a team that usually doing a stage rather than for another activity.

Sometimes, there are special groups made within the AKB48 Group, such as single coupling song groups. An example of this is Team PB or Team YJ. These teams were only temporary and for marketing purposes, the members within them stayed part of their original teams as well. Other temporary teams, such as Team Undecided and Team Unknown, are used when a member is transferred or promoted, but there either is no team spot available, or they haven't been assigned to a team yet. Kenkyuusei, Trainee, Research Student, or Academy (they are the unders for promoted members) are sometimes referred to as Team Kenkyuusei, but is not official.

Currently, a special Team, Team Kaigai is being used for AKB48 members who have been transferred to sister groups abroad.

A list with the current captains of the teams can be found here.
