It's pure rng. I don't think there is a way to guarantee facing off against her

Special Trainers appear only in the Battle Tree's Super Course challenges, during every ten battles. Like with the other Battle Tree Trainers, their teams are randomly selected from a group of Pokémon specifically preset for each of them. All of these Trainers are equally likely to appear except Anabel, who appears only one-seventh as frequently as everyone else.

Considering there's a couple version exclusive special trainers, there is a 1/57 chance every ten battles to encounter Anabel.

Some of the special trainers are version-exclusive, so it's not that bad. You have a 1/50 chance (counting only the battle numbers ending in 0, other than 50, so an average of 510 battles if you never lose) to get Anabel in SM, or a 1/57 chance in USUM.
