    For $50 you can purchase Motion ... which is really a necessary part of FCPX. In Motion 5 there are Generators for Numbers, Time & Date and TimeCode. You can even use motion to make the effect for FCPX. Almost all the Effects included in FCPX originate and are made with Motion 5.

    Under Library>Generators> Text Generators there are 3 that seem like thats what you want. Numbers, Time Date and Timecode.
