Upon realising that Sasuke still wouldn't be coming home, Naruto asked the [[Tsunade|Fifth Hokage]] to send a squad out to hunt down Sasuke's target, [[Itachi Uchiha]], before Sasuke can get to him and use him as bait to bring Sasuke back to Konoha. Kakashi added that a small but elite squad of shinobi would be needed to take down a member of [[Akatsuki]], and enlisted the members of [[Team Kurenai]] for their tracking skills. With this, [[Team Kakashi]] and [[Team Kurenai]] formed a single squad for one purpose: hunt down the Uchiha. == Missions == === [[Itachi Pursuit Arc|Hunt for Itachi]] === *'''Status:''' Failed; Itachi died and Sasuke's trail was lost Starting out as a mission to capture the missing-nin [[Itachi Uchiha]], it called for the squad to split up and search the area for any sign of Itachi. However, upon seeing [[Deidara]]'s suicide explosion, the team regrouped, with Kiba finding Sasuke's scent. With Sasuke so close, the squad's primary mission of finding Itachi was replaced with finding Sasuke instead. While being stalled by Akatsuki member [[Tobi]], the team learned that Itachi had died in battle with Sasuke. They tried to reach Sasuke before Tobi could, but failed as both Itachi's corpse and Sasuke were gone, and were unable to rediscover Sasuke's trail.
