Introduction

1st~3rd Generation is what we know as the Original Teams (1st Gen: Team A, 2nd Gen: Team K, 3rd Gen: Team B).

Later on, when more auditions were held, all the future successful candidates would take part of a in-training team of members that would work as sub and under for the official members in various activities (mostly the Theater Performances). And finally, when any of the official members would graduate, a girl would be promoted to fill the space.

This group of girls was called AKB48 SEED. The term was was dropped later on and changed to Kenkyuusei Members (Research Students). After more auditions were held and eventually more generations were created, the Kenkyuusei started to perform by themselves in the theater on their own stage.

In 2009 the Team Kenkyuusei was created and the Kenkyuusei Selection was held for the first time. Since then, the Kenkyuusei had more presence in the group, even being part of Senbatsu and appearing on TV shows. After the 2012 Tokyo Dome Team Shuffle, the Kenkyuusei rarely subbed for members of Team A, Team K, and Team B at theater shows any longer. This was because those teams had over 16 members, and since only 16 could perform at once, there was usually a surplus of members to perform. However, until the AKB48 Group Daisokaku Matsuri Team 4 only had 16 members, so whenever a Team 4 member could not perform a Kenkyuusei would fill her place.

Currently, with exception of the 8th generation, all the generations have at least one member in the group. The members after the 9th generation are usually referred to new generation members. Once Yokoyama Yui became captain of Team A and Iriyama Anna and Kawaei Rina joined Senbatsu, the term started to be used mainly for members after 12th generation.

AKB48 had a total of 181 original members during all their 15 generations. As of March 2014, AKB48 has 82 Members (Katayama Haruka announced graduation) and 10 Kennin Members.
