Attention Pokemon Trainers: My kid needs help

My 6-year-old son has recently gotten into playing Pokemon with some other kids in his afterschool program. I dutifully went out and bought him this trainers kit with 60-card deck. He now reports that the other kids won't play with him because his deck is too weak. I am Pokemon clueless. He keeps talking about EXes and GXes and I have no idea what any of this means.

It's shitty of the other kids to exclude him because of his deck, but there's not really anything I can do about that and that strikes me as pretty typical 7-9-year-old behavior anyway (they're older boys mostly that he plays with). I wanted to encourage the Pokemon in the first place mainly because he's an only child and this seemed like a good social lubricant for him to spend less time with his adult caregivers and more time with the other kids.

Anyway, we've got Prime. What will get him a better deck at the lowest price?
