Team 2 was a genin team lead by Yūki Minazuki and consisted of elite genin Itachi Uchiha, alongside Tenma Izumo and Shinko Inari. After Tenma's death and Shinko's resigning, Himuka and Yōji Aburame were added as their replacements.
The team did not last much longer as Konoha Officials went over Yūki's head and offered Itachi a chance to take the Chūnin Exams solo.
Catch the Ninneko
In the anime, Team 2 is dispatched to Sora-ku to locate a certain ninneko, whose whiskers are needed to make a special medicine. After a gruelling and rather humiliating string of failures, Itachi manages to catch the ninneko.
Because the team performed the best out of all the genin teams in said year, Team 2 was given the symbolic position of guarding the Fire Daimyō during his annual visit to Konoha. However, Obito Uchiha’s attack claimed Tenma’s life and caused Shinko to quit being a shinobi.
