    Who are the rookie nine and why are they called that? I mean there are 12 konoha genin (gai's, asuma's, kurenai's and kakashi's teams) so why rookie nine?

    The Rookie 9 are Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, Hinata, Kiba, Shino, Shikamaru, Ino, and Chouji. And they're called the Rookie 9 because they were rookies at the time. :oh

    Lee, Neji, and TenTen are all a year older than them. They're not rookies.

    Rookies are genin who have been genin for less than a year. Team Gai were in the year above them, and so aren't rookies. All nine of them took the Chunin exams and passed the first two stages. Shikamaru, of course, was the only one to get promoted.

    How, out of curiosity, could you have gone though any version of the series without figuring this out?

    But the question's already been answered by others here so...

    team gai =/= not rookies. rookies pretty much mean people that became genins just recently. and you lose the title rookies after a year or so. not only that team kurenai, kakashi and asuma were the only 3 rookie teams to be entered into the chuunin exams. right after they were genins there fore they are the rookie 9 being the 9 only rookies from konoha to be in the chuunin exams

    The Rookie 9 were in the same graduating class together. Lee, Neji, and Ten Ten graduated the previous year.

    They are called the rookie nin because they passed the test to become Genin during that year. Neji, Tenten, and Lee passed the year before that.

    Also, they could only be nine, because it was stated somewhere, if I'm not high today, that only 3 genin teams pass the 'bell test', or its equivalent, every year.
