We can use sort option to reposition the bubbles.
Use ascending or decending or manually.
The bubble chart is technically a "packed bubble chart" where Tableau is packing the bubbles as close together as possible. The layout is based on an algorithm internal to Tableau, as Sankar noted the only control we have over it is to change the sort order of the dimensions.
If you want to precisely control the locations of the bubbles and get the other kind of bubble chart, then you need to set up fields on the X and Y axis (Columns and Rows) with the desired values.
