The Temporal Mechanism is a gray Nintendo pocketwatch with Roman numerals. The second hand ticks back and forth between two seconds. Located in the Valley of Repose, it can be obtained by defeating the Fiery Bulblax who is holding onto. It is found across a body of water and the best way to defeat it is to lure it into the water which will petrify it and make it easy to beat with the Blue Pikmin.
