I mainly use Krookodile with Power Trip and thought, which would be better with Power Trip, Krookodile or Incineroar? Thx in advance for the input!

Is this for competitive? If yes, what format?

I'd say neither. You should use neither. Bcs you should use darkest lariat or knock off incineroar. And crunch krookodile. Power trip is bad unless you are running set up sweeping set.
Btw, if you want to use power trip, then krookodile.
-It has moxie, that raises atk and power trip will recieve more boost.
- darkest lariat or knock off is better on Incineroar.
If you are using bulk up incineroar, then use power trip.
It depends on your team and their moveset.

My Krookodile is a sweeper
Does it have setup moves? If not, Power Trip is useless.
Here is my Krookodile set:

Ability: Moxie
Nature: Jolly
Item: Weakness Policy
IVs: 4 HP 252 Atk 252 Spd
Moves: Power Trip
Bulk Up
Stone Edge
since it has moxie, weakness policy and bulk up, use krookodile

Like all other decisions, it depends on what your team needs.
Krookdile is faster, so can set up better. But it is slightly less bulky, and has lesser options to set up.
Incineroar is slow, but learns moves like swords dance to boost the move.
Overall, I'd say use incineroar, unless you have a baton passer (like ninjask with speed boost and swords dance and stuff). Then go for krookdile.

Those are good points, but I'd go for Krookodile because it gets Moxie, and Moxie+Power Trip sounds like stupid amounts of filthy.
